Broncos Stifle Dons, 66-48
Jan. 28, 2008
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- John Bryant scored 22 points in Santa Clara's 66-48 victory over the Dons on Monday night.
Calvin Johnson scored 11 of his 14 points in the second half of the third victory in four games for the Broncos (11-9, 3-2). San Francisco struggled to defend the 6-foot-10 Bryant, who also had 12 rebounds, while Johnson and Brody Angley hurt the Dons from outside as Santa Clara took a 25-point lead.
The Broncos led 35-22 at the half thanks to hot shooting and stifling defense. They then thwarted any chance of a comeback, outscoring the Dons 31-26 in the second half to coast to the victory.
The win denied San Francisco head coach Eddie Sutton of his 800th career victory.
Bryant recorded his ninth double double of the season and fourth in five conference games, while Brody Angley notched his second double double with 11 points and 10 assists.
Santa Clara hosts Gonzaga on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 4 p.m. PT at the Leavey Center. The game will be televised live on Comcast SportsNet and aired live on 1220 KNTS.
