March 7, 2011

Box Score

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Marquise Carter scored 18 points, including seven late free throws, and Demetri Goodson made a key steal to help Gonzaga hang on for a 71-67 victory Sunday night over San Francisco in the West Coast Conference tournament semifinals.

The Bulldogs (23-9) set up a finals rematch with Saint Mary's, who pulled off the 81-62 upset of Gonzaga in last year's championship.

San Francisco (17-14) trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half but kept chipping away.

The Dons were within 68-65 after a 3-pointer by Michael Williams with 9.7 seconds left, and Rashad Green stole the inbounds pass.

But San Francisco called a timeout from the bench when the Dons didn't have any remaining, giving Carter two more free throws. He made one for a 69-65 Gonzaga lead, then Goodson stole the inbounds pass and sank a pair of free throws to seal the victory.
