Final Stats

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Trumaine Johnson had 17 points and De'Jon Jackson added 13 points to lead San Diego to a 64-61 overtime victory over Mississippi State on Tuesday night.

San Diego (7-7) finished 25-of-61 from the field and hit 12 of 14 free throws.

Jackson scored five points for the Toreros in overtime to secure the win. Jackson, who missed the last seven games rehabbing a knee injury, gave USD a huge boost and hit the key jumper with :46 seconds left in overtime that gave USD a 62-58 lead. Gyno Pomare's layup with four seconds left sealed the victory. It was USD's second road win over an SEC opponent - last year the Toreros took down Kentucky in late December.

Mississippi State (8-5) finished 5-of-19 from beyond the arc in the loss, the Bulldogs' first overtime contest since beating Alabama in the Southeastern Conference Tournament last season.

San Diego led by as many as seven points in the first half, but only 25-24 at halftime.

The Bulldogs opened the second half on a 16-7 run, but the Toreros responded with a 13-2 run to retake the lead.

Gyno Pomare added 10 points for the Toreros. He entered the game needing 3 points to become the program's all-time leading scorer. He finished the night with 1,480 points for the No. 1 spot, passing up Stan Washington's 1,472 (1971-74). More importantly, Pomare grabbed 15 rebounds and did an outstanding job against MSU's Jarvis Varnado. Additionally, it was his put-back bucket with 21 seconds left in regulation that knotted the score at 53-all and sent the game into overtime.

Barry Stewart had 17 points for the Bulldogs, Dee Bost added 13 and Jarvis Varnado had 10.
