SAN DIEGO (AP) - Brandon Johnson scored 25 points and Gyno Pomare added 20 to lead San Diego to a 63-55 upset of No. 24 Saint Mary's on Monday night.
Johnson and Pomare played key roles in the second half as San Diego (11-11, 4-1 West Coast) defeated the Gaels on the same day they moved back into the AP Top 25.
Johnson had 18 points in the second half and combined with Pomare to score the Toreros first 14 points of the second half to erase a 29-24 halftime deficit. Johnson also keyed a run where San Diego scored 10 unanswered points to take a 58-48 lead with 1:54 left in the game.
After getting the run started with a 3-pointer, Johnson added another 3, and ended the spurt with a reverse lay-up.
