SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Jerome Gumbs scored 19 points and Tyrone
Riley added 11 points and 11 rebounds to help San Francisco hang on
for a 65-61 victory over Pennsylvania on Tuesday night.
John Cox scored 10 points for the Dons (9-4), who have won seven
of their last eight games.
After Cox missed two free throws, Eric Osmundson scored a
fast-break layup to cut the Dons' lead to two points with 1:23
remaining. A steal on the inbounds play and a dunk by Steve Danley
tied it at 59 with 1 minute to play.
Cox was fouled again and made both foul shots with 56 seconds to
give San Francisco the lead. Begley missed a 3-pointer with 24
seconds remaining. Jason Gaines made two more free throws before a
jumper by Steve Danley with 9 seconds to play. Cox made two more
free throws for the final margin of victory.
It was a close game for the first nine minutes. San Francisco
then reeled off an 11-2 run to take an eight-point lead.
The Dons used a 10-0 run in the second half to take a 15-point
lead but the Quakers answered with a 13-1 spurt to cut it to three.
There was one cheering section for Pennsylvania in the corner of
the upper stands. The Quakers' Steve Danley on his third tip-in as
time expired gave San Francisco a 35-30 lead at the break.
San Francisco guard Andre Hazel has missed the last four games
after having his right knee scoped and could make his return for
the conference opener at Loyola Marymount on Friday.
