Tyson scores 22, Shaver makes game-winning FTs for Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — D’Marques Tyson made six 3-pointers and scored 22 points, and Marcus Shaver Jr. sank the winning free throws with two seconds left as Portland edged Loyola Marymount 68-66 on Saturday.
LMU’s Steven Haney tied the game with two free throws with 13 seconds left before Shaver was fouled at the rim. James Batemon got a decent look at a 3-point try but was too strong.
Tyson made five 3-pointers and scored 17 points in the first half when Portland took a 37-27 lead. LMU led 43-40 on a Haney 3-pointer with 14:34 left and neither team led by more than four thereafter.
Franklin Porter added 12 points for the Pilots (10-15, 4-8 West Coast Conference), winners of four of their last six, the two losses against nationally ranked Saint Mary’s and Gonzaga.
Jeffery McClendon scored 15 points, Haney 13, Batemon 11 and Eli Scott 10 for the Lions (7-16, 2-10).
