SAN DIEGO (AP) - Justin Holbrook hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving Santa Clara a 67-65 victory Wednesday night over San Diego in a West Coast Conference game.
Holbrook got the inbound pass with 1.4 seconds left, took one dribble and leaned in as he made the 22-foot, game-winning shot beyond the top of the key.
Santa Clara (13-9, 5-2) led nearly the entire game before falling behind 57-56 on a pair of free throws by Andre Laws with 4:16 left.
San Diego (11-9, 3-4) took a 65-64 lead on Dana White's off-balance, five-foot shot in the lane with seven seconds remaining. White, a 6-foot guard, drove the lane and threw up his shot with three players surrounding him.
Cameron Rigby scored 15 points and Kevin Hanson had a career-high 11 for the Toreros, who stayed in the game by hitting 23-of-31 free throws.
