GAME NOTES: The Pacific Tigers look to remedy a four-game losing streak as they host the Santa Clara Broncos in West Coast Conference action Saturday at the Alex. G. Spanos Center.

Santa Clara has kept its proverbial head above the water this season with a 10-8 overall record, and has won four of its last six contests. The Broncos are coming off a slim 57-55 win against Saint Mary's on Thursday.

Pacific put up a good fight against WCC foe San Francisco Thursday, losing the contest to the 11-6 Dons, 81-72, in overtime. The Tigers are trying to cure a four-game losing streak and reach double-digit wins in the process.

Santa Clara has a firm grip on the all-time series with Pacific, leading 81-37 in the historical rivalry. The two programs will meet again later this season on Feb. 20.

The Broncos escaped a loss at Saint Mary's with some freshman heroics on Thursday. Jared Brownridge hit a 3-pointer with 1.2 second left and Santa Clara down by one point, to lift the Broncos to victory, 57-55, and improve to 3-2 in conference play. Brownridge led all Broncos scorers in the game with 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the floor. In 37 minutes of action, Brownridge pulled down six rebounds and went 3-of-4 from beyond the 3-point arc. Brandon Clark added 20 points in the win on 8-of-14 shooting. The Broncos hit 66.7 percent of their 3-point attempts in the game.

Clark leads the team in scoring this season with 17.2 ppg, while Brownridge is playing way beyond his freshman status for Santa Clara, averaging 16.3 ppg. Jerry Brown is first on the team in rebounding at 6.2 rpg, and is second on the roster with 15 blocks on the year. The Broncos have scored 72.1 ppg this season.

Pacific held a seven-point lead against San Francisco with 11:46 left to play on Thursday, but the Dons slowly chipped away and forced overtime. USF dominated the overtime period, extinguishing any hope for the Tigers. Andrew Bock scored a team-high 17 points and led his Tigers with four assists. Tony Gill netted 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds, while Ross Rivera scored 14 off the bench. Trevin Harris rounded out the double-digit scorers for Pacific, contributing 10 points.

Bock leads four players on the roster in double figures, netting 12 ppg. Sama Taku averages 11.7 ppg, Gill registers 10.5 ppg and Rivera is fourth at 10.1 ppg. Gill leads the team by pulling down 5.7 rpg and with 1.1 steals per contest. Bock tops the Tigers with 2.6 apg. Pacific has scored an average of 74.3 ppg, but is giving up 74.9 ppg to its opposition.

Santa Clara seems to be heating up at the right time - as conference play really gets underway. The Tigers may have trouble keeping Clark and Brownridge under raps.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Santa Clara 76, Pacific 69
