FRESNO, Calif. -- Kevin Foster scored 13 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, and Fresno State rode a late 8-0 run to a 66-61 victory over Pacific on Friday night.
Lorenzo McCloud scored 20 points and Colin Beatty had 10 rebounds for the Tigers (1-1), who tied the game at 58 on Beatty's free throw with 3:18 to play. But a Jerry Brown jumper, a Huddleston 3-pointer and three free throws sealed the game for the Bulldogs before McCloud hit a meaningless 3-pointer with 7 seconds left.
Fresno State narrowed Pacific's lead in the series to 78-75. The teams have played each other at least once a season since 1964-65, except in 2006-07.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
