Murray State vs San Francisco

Murray St. 70, San Francisco 67


ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Donte Poole finished with 22 points, helping Murray State hang on to a 70-67 win over San Francisco on Friday in the third round of the Great Alaska Shootout.

The Racers (6-0) led the whole way, including by as many as 14 points late in the first half. They advanced to Saturday's championship against Southern Mississippi.

But the Dons (5-2) mounted a comeback after the break, outscoring Murray State 48-40 and pulling within a point four times in the final 1:12.

San Francisco never closed the gap, however, in part because the Racers' Jewuan Long sank four free throws in the final 11 seconds.

Long finished with 12 points while Isaiah Canaan added 21 and Ivan Aska 10.

Rashad Green led the Dons with a game-high 23 points, shooting 7 for 10 from the field and 8 for 10 from the free-throw line. Cody Doolin added 18 points and Michael Williams 10 for San Francisco.
