LOS ANGELES (AP) Brandon McGhee stole it from Darius Brown II with 5 seconds left and passed it ahead to Roberto Gallinat for the winning layup to help Pacific beat CSU Northridge 79-77 on Sunday.

Anthony Townes led the Tigers with 24 points and Lafayette Dorsey scored 11.

Pacific had its largest deficit at 63-54 in the middle of the second half and rallied with a 15-2 run to lead 69-65 with 5:37 left. The Tigers held that lead until Rodney Henderson Jr. hit a 3-pointer and followed with a 4-point play to give CSUN a 75-72 lead with 1:47 left.
