Loyola Marymount vs Santa Clara

Loyola Marymount 60, Santa Clara 58

  •  

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Loyola Marymount continued its surprising run through the West Coast Conference tournament as Anthony Ireland hit the go-ahead basket with 5.2 seconds remaining Friday night in a 60-58 victory over Santa Clara.

The Lions (11-22) came into the nine-team tournament as the lowest seed after finishing conference play 1-15 and dropping their final 14 games. But they have already tripled that victory total by beating eighth-seeded Portland 65-54 in the opening round, fifth-seeded San Francisco 61-60 in overtime of the second round and fourth-seeded Santa Clara on Friday. Next up is top-seeded Gonzaga in the semifinals on Saturday.

Ireland, who had 23 points, scored on a layup to put Loyola Marymount ahead 59-58. After Brandon Clark missed the front end of a one-and-one free-throw opportunity for the Broncos, Ireland then hit 1 of 2 free throws with 2 seconds left, and Kevin Foster's half-court shot at the buzzer was off the mark.

Foster led Santa Clara (21-11) with 23 points.
