ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Evan Roquemore hit two go-ahead free throws with 4.3 seconds remaining as Santa Clara finished with a 10-0 run to beat Villanova 65-64 in Sunday's third-place game of the 76 Classic.

After JayVaughn Pinkston missed the front end of a 1-and-1, Roquemore was fouled while grabbing the rebound. His free throws completed a nine-point comeback over the final three minutes.

Raymond Cowels scored 20 points on six 3-pointers for Santa Clara (4-2). Roquemore had 15 points and nine assists.

Mouphtaou Yarou finished with 19 points and seven rebounds for Villanova (4-2). Maalik Wayns and Dominic Cheek had 10 points apiece.

The Broncos trailed by nine with 2:56 remaining. Yannick Atanga and Cowels hit jumpers before Roquemore scored the game's final six points, all on free throws.

Santa Clara went 10 off 11 from the free-throw line.
