STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Dulani Robinson's 3-pointer with 4 seconds remaining lifted Pacific over Fresno State 71-68 on Saturday night.

A 6-0 spurt by Pacific early in the second half pushed its lead into double digits, but Fresno State whittled its deficit down to three on Julien Lewis' jumper with 57 seconds left, and then tied it at 68 on Marvelle Harris' jumper with 17 seconds remaining. On the ensuing possession Robinson drilled the trey and Fresno was unable to get off a tying attempt.

Robinson finished with 11 points. Gabriel Aguirre led Pacific with 15 points, T.J. Wallace had 12 and David Taylor added 11.

Fresno State was paced by Lewis' career-high 29 points and Harris added 26.

Pacific used a 9-0 run midway through the first half — including a 3-pointer by Taylor — to turn a one-point deficit into an eight-point lead and held a 31-24 advantage at the break.
