SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Jared Brownridge hit 7 of 15 from beyond the arc to total 32 points as Santa Clara jumped ahead in the second half to take an 84-74 win over Sacred Heart on Monday night.

Matt Hauser got his second straight double-double with 14 points and a career-high 11 assists and Nate Kratch chipped in 11 points for the Broncos (3-2).
