SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Devin Watson scored 23 points as San Francisco recovered from a nine-point halftime deficit to beat Pacific 89-76 on Wednesday night.

Pacific went ahead, 68-66, with 7:08 left and Ofoegbu responded with a pair of 3-pointers and Watson drained another for an 85-74 Dons lead with 1:40 remaining.
