SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / AP) — Matt Carlino scored a career-high 30 points, including a game-winning basket with 21 seconds remaining, as Brigham Young beat San Francisco 85-84 Thursday night for its sixth victory in seven games.
Angelo Caloiaro scored 23 for USF, but he missed an open look at the 3-point line on the Dons’ final, frantic possession. San Francisco’s Cody Doolin and BYU’s Anson Windsor were fighting for the rebound as time expired.
Noah Hartsock had 16 points and Charles Abouo 15 for the Cougars (22-6, 10-3 West Coast Conference), who didn’t trail until Rashad Green hit a jumper from the foul line with 47 seconds remaining. That put San Francisco (17-11, 7-7) ahead 84-83.
Carlino, a transfer from UCLA who became eligible Dec. 17, became the first Cougar to go for 30 points since Jimmer Fredette last season.
Perris Blackwell added 18 for San Francisco, Doolin 16, Green 12 and Cole Dickerson 10.
