SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Kyle Bailey hit a 3-pointer with four seconds remaining to lift Santa Clara to a 65-63 victory over San Jose State on Tuesday night as the Broncos avoided their worst start in 37 years by overcoming a 21-point deficit.

Steve Ross scored 12 of his 17 points in the second half for Santa Clara (1-3), which hadn't lost more than three in a row to start a season since 1964.

Moises Alvarez scored 14 points for San Jose State (2-3), which lost to the Broncos for the fifth straight time. Phil Calvert and Marion Thurmond each added 12. Ryan Davis had 11.

Jordan Legge, who finished with 16 points, set a freshman free throw record for Santa Clara, making 10-of-13. Brian Jones held the old mark with nine. Bailey finished with 15 points.

Santa Clara, which missed six of his first seven attempts from 3-point range, relied on the long shot to climb back into the contest in the second half. Ross hit three consecutive 3-pointers and the Broncos used an 11-0 run to tie the game at 43-all with 13:22 remaining.

San Jose State responded with a 14-2 run, with Alvarez scoring eight points, to take a 12-point edge five minutes later.

The Spartans had a 63-62 lead with over a minute to play, but then turned the ball over with 14 seconds left to set up Bailey's heroics.

The Spartans used a 16-2 run - highlighted by a pair of 3-pointers from Alvarez - to open a 30-9 lead with 7:02 remaining in the first half.

The Broncos outscored San Jose State 13-2 the rest of the way to draw within 32-22 at halftime, despite shooting just 21 percent.
