FULLERTON, Calif. -- Kwame Vaughn hit a jump shot at the buzzer, giving Cal State Fullerton a 71-69 victory over UC Riverside on Saturday night.
The Titans (9-6, 3-1 Big West) led 69-65 after a pair of Vaughn free throws with 1:47 remaining, but Josh Fox scored on a dunk with 1:28 left and Chris Patton hit a layup with 16 seconds to go to tie it up for Riverside (4-12, 1-3).
Fox led Riverside with 19 points and nine rebounds. Patton had 16 points and Chris Harriel added 13.
Riverside shot 62 percent from the field and outrebounded the Titans 34-21, but the Highlanders made only 8 of 15 free throws and committed 23 turnovers.
