SAN DIEGO (AP) — Alec Wintering hit a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left on Saturday night and Portland finished with a 9-0 run to beat San Diego 61-58 in the West Coast Conference opener for both teams.

Wintering dribbled off Volodymyr Gerun's screen on the right wing and pulled up over San Diego's Thomas Jacobs for the game-winner.

Bobby Sharp scored a fast break layup to tie the game at 58 with 1:07 to go. Gerun then secured the rebound after a defensive stop with 29 seconds left to give the Pilots the last shot.

Gerun finished with 13 point and 14 rebounds and the Pilots (10-3). D'Marques Tyson added 13 points and Bryce Pressley scored 11.

Brandon Perry's putback gave San Diego a 58-52 lead with 2:47 to play, but the Toreros (7-6) went scoreless from there.

Christopher Anderson had 14 points, Jacobs scored 12 and Johnny Dee 11 for San Diego.
