SAN DIEGO (AP) - Brice Vounang had 26 points and Brandon Gay had 18 points and 10 rebounds as San Diego snapped a school record 11-game losing streak with a 74-71 win over Santa Clara Saturday night.

The Toreros (4-19, 1-7 West Coast Conference) won for the first time since Dec. 23, when they beat Division 2 UC San Diego.

Kyle Bailey led Santa Clara (13-11, 5-4) with 26 points, hitting six of 13 shots from 3-point range. Doron Perkins added 19 points, including a four-point play with just five seconds left that brought Santa Clara to within two points at 73-71.

San Diego's Brett Melton then hit one of two free throws with 3.9 seconds left.

Bailey got off a three that would have tied the game but was wide of the rim.

Santa Clara led 53-46 with 8:24 left in the game. But with Vounang taking control down low and Gay hitting from the outside, San Diego went on a 21-4 run to take a 67-57 lead with 2:08 left in the game.

Santa Clara battled back with Bailey scoring 10 of his 26 points in the final 1:37, but the Toreros held on.
