ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Niyi Harrison hit two go-ahead free throws with 1:59 left in overtime to lift Santa Clara to a 79-76 victory over New Mexico on Thursday night in the 76 Classic.

Kevin Foster scored 26 points and Evan Roquemore 24, and they combined for nine of the Broncos' 11 3-pointers. Harrison added 19 points for Santa Clara (3-1).

Tony Snell scored 18 points for New Mexico (2-2). Hugh Greenwood added 14.

Santa Clara will face Oklahoma in the semifinals Friday. New Mexico will play Washington State in the consolation bracket.

Harrison broke an overtime tie to make it 76-74 with his free throws. Raymond Cowels was fouled moments later and hit two free throws to give the Broncos a four-point cushion.

Jamal Fenton made two free throws for the Lobos, who then intentionally fouled Foster. He split his free throws, putting Santa Clara up 79-76.

New Mexico called time to set up a final play. Phillip McDonald got a good look, but his 3-pointer hit the back of the rim.
