San Francisco hangs on for 78-76 win over Central Arkansas
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Jordan Ratinho scored 17 points, including four 3-pointers, and San Francisco held on Monday night for a 78-76 win over Central Arkansas.
In a tight game, San Francisco (4-3) took the lead for good with Frankie Ferrari’s layup to make it 69-67 with 5:08 left and stretched it to five, 77-72, about two minutes later with Ratinho’s 3-pointer. Central Arkansas clawed back with a layup and two free throws from Jordan Howard to trail by a point but missed a 3-pointer just ahead of the buzzer after San Francisco’s Chase Foster went 1 for 2 from the line with 15 seconds left.
Ferrari finished with 15 points on 5-for-9 shooting for the Dons, who outrebounded Central Arkansas 43-30 – including 17-1 on the offensive glass – to snap a two-game skid.
Howard led the Bears (4-5) with season-high 27 points, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range. Mathieu Kamba added 16 points and Thatch Unruh had 11 with seven rebounds.
