When the Spartans let loose a half-court shot at the end of overtime that clanged off the backboard, off the rim, and out, the University of San Francisco Dons took home the win, advancing their overtime record under Rex Walters to 10-1.
Senior forward Angelo Caloiaro led the Dons with 19 points and 13 rebounds as USF advanced its record to 3-1 on the season by outscoring San Jose State University 12-10 in bonus basketball.
It was Caloairo's second consecutive double-double, and helped extend USF's winning streak to three games.
The Dons are making ordinary these close wins; they beat Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday with a go-ahead layup by Cody Doolin with 16.9 seconds remaining.
Keith Shamburger scored a career-high-tying 23 points for San Jose State (1-2).
Perris Blackwell added 18 points and six rebounds for the Dons (3-1). Rashad Green had 11 points, eight boards and five assists.
The Dons scored seven points on their first three possessions in overtime and didn't trail again, although the Spartans made it close behind Shamburger, who had eight points in the extra period.
With USF up two and 3.5 seconds on the clock, the Dons' Cody Doolin missed a pair of free throws. The Spartans' Jaleel Williams grabbed the rebound and fed James Kinney, whose 40-foot heave at the buzzer was off the mark.
