STOCKTON, Calif. -- Kevin Foster scored 31 points, including a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 55 seconds remaining, to lead Santa Clara to a 75-71 victory over Pacific Saturday night.
Foster, averaging 20 points per game entering play, had 28 points in the second half for the Broncos (8-2). After his 3-pointer gave Santa Clara a 69-66 lead, he stole the ball and scored to make it a five-point game.
Pacific is leaving the Big West Conference after this season to join Santa Clara in the West Coast Conference.
Leaving early for the NBA is a risky decision. Some players -- Skal Labissiere, Dejounte Murray -- slid in the draft. Some -- Isaiah Taylor, Troy Williams -- weren't drafted at all.
