IRVINE, Calif. (AP) Jaron Martin sank a career-best six 3-pointers and made a pair of free throws with 2.8 seconds left to lift UC Irvine to an 83-80 win over Cal State Northridge on Saturday night.
After trailing most of the game, Northridge cut the deficit to 81-80 with a pair of free throws from Aaron Parks and then fouled Martin, who sank both free throws to stretch Irvine's advantage back to three.
Northridge (11-16, 7-7) then got the ball to Michael Warren, whose shot from near midcourt didn't hit the rim as time expired.
