SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Kwame Vaughn hit a free throw with 0.6 seconds remaining in overtime as San Francisco broke a three-year losing streak against Bay Area rival Santa Clara by pulling out a 67-66 victory Saturday night.

Vaughn finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and three assists for the Dons (10-17, 2-10 West Coast Conference), who had lost seven straight games to the Broncos, a stretch dating to Jan. 28, 2006. Dior Lowhorn added 13 points and nine boards for a depleted USF squad that only suited up eight players.

Kevin Foster paced Santa Clara (14-15, 6-6) with 20 points, including seven in an overtime period where the Broncos held a 66-61 lead with less than 2 minutes to go but allowed USF to score the game's final six points. John Bryant tallied 17 points and 12 rebounds for his 22nd double-double on the season.
