USF Beats Gonzaga 96-91 In OT
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Cody Doolin converted a three-point play with 4.1 seconds remaining in overtime, and San Francisco upset Gonzaga 96-91 on Saturday in a game marred by physical play.
The Dons (10-10, 4-1 West Coast) benefited from an elbow by Gonzaga’s Robert Sacre in the final minute of regulation that was called an intentional foul.
Doolin finished with 23 points and Angelo Caloiaro scored 17 points in the biggest win of the year for San Francisco, who moved into sole possession of second place in the conference. The home fans rushed the court and tossed everything from T-shirts to soft drinks airborne in a wild celebration afterward.
Steven Gray and Demetri Goodson had 20 points apiece for the Bulldogs (13-7, 3-2), who suffered their second straight loss following a nine-game winning streak. A setback at Santa Clara on Thursday was their first defeat since an 83-79 loss at Notre Dame on Dec. 11.
