Recap: Santa Clara vs. UC Santa Barbara

Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) - Alan Williams registered a huge double- double with 29 points and 17 rebounds as the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos slipped by Santa Clara, 83-80, in overtime during a non-conference contest at the Leavey Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Gauchos (3-4) were Kyle Boswell and Taran Brown with 15 and 11 points, respectively, the latter adding nine rebounds in an effort to offset his six turnovers as UCSB snapped a two-game slide.

The Broncos (5-2), who lost their second straight overtime affair after opening the campaign with five consecutive victories, were paced by Kevin Foster with 28 points and nine assists, although he shot just 4-of-13 behind the three-point line and 9-of-23 from the floor overall, not to mention 6- of-11 at the charity stripe. Evan Roquemore tallied 22 points, Raymond Cowels III accounted for 11, while Niyi Harrison and Marc Trasolini contributed with 11 and 10 rebounds, respectively.

Despite shooting only 34.4 percent from the floor in the first half, which included 3-of-13 beyond the arc, Santa Clara managed to move out to a narrow 30-28 advantage at the break.

In the second half the Broncos again had a hard time finding the mark (.393), but a pair of free throws by Foster put the team ahead by two, 67-65 with less than a minute remaining in regulation. Roquemore added a pair of free throws of his own to extend the lead to four, but a three-pointer by Brown cut the advantage to just a single point with 8.2 seconds left.

Forced to foul, UCSB sent Cowels III to the free-throw line where he made a pair to make the score 71-68 in favor of the hosts. With time winding down Boswell connected on a three-pointer that pushed the game into overtime.

In the extra session the Gauchos made only 2-of-7 shots from the field, but did connect on 8-of-14 at the charity stripe in order to seal the win.

The Broncos ended the contest shooting only 36.9 percent from the floor and 23-of-35 at the free-throw line.
