Dec. 22, 2006
HONOLULU (AP) - Brad Jones scored seven of his 26 points in overtime to lead Wyoming to an 84-81 win over San Francisco in a consolation game of the Rainbow Classic on Friday.
San Francisco took an 81-80 lead when Alan Wiggins Jr. made a 15-foot jumper with 1:04 left, but Jones scored the final four points to win it for the Cowboys (9-3).
San Francisco (4-9) had a chance to retake the lead after Jones made two free throws with 47 seconds left, but Armondo Surratt missed an open layup under the basket. Jones made an 18-footer on Wyoming's next possession.
San Francisco was led by Antonio Kellogg's 22-point, 10-rebound performance and Wiggins added 21 points with 11 rebounds.
The Cowboys play in Saturday's fifth-place game against the winner of Friday's Charlotte-Valparaiso game. San Francisco meets the loser of that match in the seventh-place game.
