FRESNO, Calif. -- Kevin Foster scored 13 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, and Fresno State rode a late 8-0 run to a 66-61 victory over Pacific on Friday night.
Lorenzo McCloud scored 20 points and Colin Beatty had 10 rebounds for the Tigers (1-1), who tied the game at 58 on Beatty's free throw with 3:18 to play. But a Jerry Brown jumper, a Huddleston 3-pointer and three free throws sealed the game for the Bulldogs before McCloud hit a meaningless 3-pointer with 7 seconds left.
Fresno State narrowed Pacific's lead in the series to 78-75. The teams have played each other at least once a season since 1964-65, except in 2006-07.
