San Diego edges Utah 67-64 for 7th in Hawaii event
The Toreros (3-10), who picked up their first win over a Division I opponent, were led by Jordan Mackie’s 14 points. Ginty added 13 and Darian Norris 12.
Will Clyburn scored 19 points, Jason Washburn 16 and Jay Watkins 13 for the Utes (7-6).
Washburn’s two free throws tied it 60-60 with 1:31 left, but Chris Manresa was fouled on San Diego’s next possession and converted both free throws to put his team up for good.
Watkins drew the Utes within a point twice in the final 12 seconds. But Ginty, who was 7 of 8 from the line, preserved the victory.
Josh Watkins’ 3-pointer at the buzzer was no good.
