    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) -- Johnny Gray made five free throws in overtime as Pacific snapped a two-game losing streak by beating San Francisco, 75-71, on Wednesday night.

    Gray and teammate Christian Maraker combined to score all eight of the Tigers' points in overtime, completing an impressive comeback for Pacific, which had to rally for its first road win of the season.

    Freshman Steffan Johnson scored 17 points to lead the Tigers (4-2), who trailed by eight points with under six minutes left in regulation before going on a 14-6 run to force overtime.

    Michael White added 16 points while Christian Maraker had his third double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

    San Francisco (1-4), which lost its third straight game, missed its first five shots of overtime. Armondo Surratt ended the drought with a driving lay-up with 13 seconds left, pulling the Dons within 72-69 but Maraker and Gray teamed up for three free throws to seal the win for Pacific.

    Surratt finished with a game-high 20 points and seven assists for San Francisco, which played overtime without its two tallest players, center Jason Wallace-Carter and forward Alan Wiggins. Both 6-foot-9-inch players fouled out late in the second half.

    Jerome Gumbs added 18 points and five rebounds while Dommanic Ingerson had 14 for the Dons.

    Pacific trailed 61-53 with 5:47 remaining in the second half but went on an 8-0 run over the next three minutes to tie the game. Surratt's free throw pushed San Francisco back on top but the two teams went back and forth from there, exchanging four leads in the final 2:30 before going to overtime.

    San Francisco had three chances to win in regulation but Surrat, Gumbs and Jesse Byrd all missed shots in the final 10 seconds.

    Pacific made seven of its first 11 shots of the game and kept connecting from the perimeter, building a 30-27 on Johnson's fourth 3-pointer of the game with 5:28 remaining in the first half. But the Tigers couldn't shake the Dons, who kept pace by making five 3's of their own in the first half.

    Four free throws by Gumbs and a 3-pointer from Dommanic Ingerson highlighted a 10-3 San Francisco run over the final three minutes, giving the Dons a 39-35 halftime lead.
