SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) -- Alex Harris and Cecil Brown scored
14 points apiece and each delivered key baskets in the closing
minutes Monday to lead UC Santa Barbara to a 67-65 victory over the
University of San Diego.

After Harris hit the tie-breaking shot with 1:47 left in the
game, Brown's basket put the Gauchos (2-0) up by five with 30
seconds left.

San Diego (1-1) nearly pulled off a comeback when Nick Lewis'
3-pointer pulled the Toreros to two with 18 seconds remaining and
San Diego got the ball back for the final shot. But Brandon
Johnson's runner rimmed out at the buzzer.

Lewis had 15 points and eight rebounds, and the Toreros' Ross
DeRogatis led all scorers with 16 points.

UCSB outrebounded San Diego 45-32, and Harris had a leading 10
rebounds.
