Box Score

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) -- Jerome Gumbs made four free throws in the final 20 seconds and San Francisco came from 10 points behind to defeat San Diego in overtime, 87-82, on Saturday.

John Cox scored a game-high 31 points to lead the Dons while Tyrone Riley added 22 points and eight rebounds. It was the first West Coast Conference win for San Francisco under first-year coach Jessie Evans, who replaced Phil Matthews in the offseason.

Brice Vounang had 20 points and seven rebounds for San Diego, which lost for the second time in its last eight games. Nick Lewis and Brandon Gay added 18 points apiece for the Toreros (9-7, 1-2 WCC).

Gumbs scored 13 points for San Francisco but was shut out in overtime before his four free throws capped the Dons' come-from-behind win. Gumbs also had a key assist during a 7-0 San Francisco run that closed out overtime and sealed the victory.

San Diego, which lost for the first time this season when leading at the half, missed its final four shots in overtime, including a 3-point try by Floyd North with six seconds remaining.

North also committed a critical turnover earlier in the overtime when he tried to throw a pass off Gumbs that was instead intercepted with 20 seconds left.

San Francisco (10-6, 1-2) trailed most of the first half and fell behind 52-42 early in the second before rallying to force overtime. Cox led the comeback for the Dons, scoring 18 of his points in the second half, including the final five for San Francisco.

San Diego led early thanks to the inside scoring of Vounang, who had 11 points in the first half and dominated USF underneath the basket, but it was the Toreros perimeter shooting that did the most damage. They connected on 9 of 13 3-pointers, including four from Lewis who paced San Diego with 16 points in the opening 20 minutes.



The Toreros shot 58.1 percent from the floor overall in the first half and led by as many as 10 before San Francisco's John Cox hit a long jumper at the buzzer to pull the Dons within 50-42 at the break.
