SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Toreros are the city's second-best basketball team again, if just by one point.
Xavier Thames made four free throws in the final 12.2 seconds and No. 24 San Diego State escaped with a 65-64 win against San Diego on Thursday night after Duda Sanadze's 3-point shot bounced off the rim as time expired.
"I thought that was a pretty good city championship - a good battle between two pretty good defensive teams," USD coach Bill Grier said. "I thought our guys kept fighting back. Other than the ball going in, I really can't ask for more."
