LOS ANGELES -- Cody Doolin's layup with 0.5 seconds left thwarted a second-half rally and gave San Francisco a 61-59 win Thursday night over Loyola Marymount.
The Dons (12-15, 5-9 West Coast) led by as many as 20 in the first half, but the Lions (8-19, 1-13) came back after halftime, taking their first lead of the game, 57-56, on Alex Osborne's layup with 2:20 to play. USF's Frank Rogers was then called for a technical foul, and Ashley Hamilton made two free throws for a three-point lead.
Loyola, though, wouldn't score again. USF's Cole Dickerson tied the game on a 3-pointer with a minute to play before Doolin's heroics sent the Lions to their 11th consecutive loss.
Dickerson scored 16 and Doolin had 13 for the Dons, who now lead 107-38 in a series that dates to 1924. Anthony Ireland led Loyola with 21 points, and Hamilton and Osborne scored 11 apiece.
NCAA title game hero Kris Jenkins said he will withdraw his name from the NBA draft and return to Villanova for his senior season.
