    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.

    Ibrahim Jaaber scored 12 points to lead Pennsylvania (4-5), which has lost three straight games. Tim Begley added 11 and Eric Osmundson and Steve Danley had 10 apiece.

    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.
