    RUSTON, La. (AP) -- A last second shot from Louisiana Tech's Trey McDowell would not drop Thursday and Fresno State edged past Tech's Bulldogs 64-63 in a Western Athletic Conference matchup Thursday night.

    Dominic McGuire scored 19 points to lead four Fresno State players in double figures. Kevin Bell scored 16, while Hector Hernandez added 15 and Quinton Hosley had 12 for the Bulldogs (19-8, 7-6 WAC).

    McDowell had 16 to lead Tech (9-18, 6-8) while Chad McKenzie added 13.

    McDowell starting the scoring for Tech with a jumper at the 18:24 mark in the first half to give Tech a 2-0 lead. After a Fresno basket, Drew Washington drained a 17-footer for a 6-2 Tech lead. That shot sparked a 12-5 run over the next four minutes for a 16-7 score.

    Fresno State rallied with a run of its own and tied the game at 18 apiece with 8:12 left in the half and took the 21-20 lead at the 6:17 mark.

    Fresno led 32-26 at the half.

    Tech clawed back to a 40-39 lead with 14 minutes left to go in the game but Fresno reclaimed the lead with a 3-pointer shortly after from Hosley with 11:12 left to play.

    McKenzie took the lead back with a lay-up with 10:10 on the clock for a 45-44 score. Both teams battled to the finish before the final gun gave Fresno the win.
