Duda Sanadze scored 15 points, including three free throws in the final 2.9 seconds, and the San Diego Toreros upset No. 25 Gonzaga 69-66 Saturday night, the first time the Bulldogs have lost consecutive games this season.

Johnny Dee had 16 points for the Toreros (16-14, 7-10 West Coast Conference) who snapped an 11-game losing streak to Gonzaga (23-6, 13-3), which once again was denied clinching the outright league title. The Zags have clinched at least a tie for the title.

With USD leading 66-63, the refs ruled that the ball went off Dee's foot on an inbound play with 3.2 seconds left. After a video review, they reversed the call and Sanadze was fouled by Kevin Pangos and made one of two free throws. David Stockton made a 3-pointer with 0.5 seconds left to pull the Zags within one point. Sanadze was fouled by Kyle Dranginis and made both shots to clinch it.
