SAN FRANCISCO -- Cody Doolin converted a three-point play with 4.1 seconds remaining in overtime, and San Francisco upset Gonzaga 96-91 on Saturday in a game marred by physical play.

The home fans rushed the court and tossed everything from T-shirts to soft drinks airborne in a wild celebration afterward.Steven Gray and Demetri Goodson had 20 points apiece for the Bulldogs (13-7, 3-2), who suffered their second straight loss following a nine-game winning streak. A setback at Santa Clara on Thursday was their first defeat since an 83-79 loss at Notre Dame on Dec. 11.
