The young Dons team could not fend off the University of Pacific Tigers on the road as the University of San Francisco fell 67-59 in Stockton.

De’End Parker had just seven points on 2-10 shooting. As a team, the Dons shot 42 percent from the field.

The Dons jumped out to an early 12-3 lead, and it seemed like they would cruise to their sixth straight victory. But that was not the case, as the Tigers battled back to trail by only two at 29-27 at halftime.

Again, San Francisco came out hot to begin the second half. They led 38-31 with 14:12 remaining, only to see Ross Rivera and the Tigers go on an 8-1 run to tie things up at 39-39.

Pacific took the lead midway through the half and never relinquished it again. The Dons came close when a Cole Dickerson layup made it 61-59 with 1:23 to play, but quick baskets by Travis Fulton and Rivera sealed the deal for the Tigers.

The Dons will face Nevada on the road next Saturday.
