    Trailing 73-53 with 7:18 left in the game, the Spartans (0-1) closed to within eight points, 77-69, with 2:08 left. But Clark, who was 11 of 14 from the line, made six free throws and a basket in the final minute, and Denzel Johnson added a pair of layups to preserve the win.

    Jerry Brown, a graduate transfer from Fresno State, scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Jared Brownridge added 15 points and Johnson 11. Yannick Atanga also had 10 rebounds.

    The Broncos had led by as many as 19 points in the first half.
