SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Donovan Fields scored 23 points, sank the go-ahead bucket and got a key defensive rebound to lead Cal Poly to a 63-59 win over Santa Clara on Saturday night.
Tied at 59-all with 42 seconds to play following a 9-2 run by Santa Clara late in the second half, Donovan hit a jumper to put Cal Poly back on top and then hauled in a defensive rebound at the other end with five seconds left to set up Marcellus Garrick’s lead-padding dunk just ahead the buzzer.
Fields finished 7 of 13 from the field, including a trio of 3-pointers, and hit all six of his free throws. Garrick added 12 points and Victor Joseph had 10 for Cal Poly (2-2), which went 8 for 16 from 3-point range and was 13 of 16 from the line.
