Spokane, WA (AP) — Cam Shelton hits second with 13 seconds left and No. 6 Loyola Marymount Gonzaga hit a 75-game winning streak with a 68-67 win Thursday night.

The Bulldogs’ home streak (16-4, 5-1 West Coast Conference) is tied with Long Beach State (from 1968 to 1974) for the eighth longest in Division I history.

Shelton scored 27 points to lead the Lions (14-7, 4-3), who haven’t won in Spokane since 1991 and have lost 25 in a row to the Zags.

Gonzaga has won 93 consecutive games against unranked opponents with 69 of those coming home, and has won its previous 116 World Cup matches against teams other than Saint Mary’s and BYU.

Gonzaga’s streak of 36 consecutive wins in January also came to an end. The Bulldogs had won 11 in a row since losing to Baylor on December 2.

Jalen Anderson added 15 points and Kelly Lyubebe added 11 points for the Lions. Loyola Marymount took a nine-man lead in the second period and stopped Gonzaga’s late lead.
