USF basketball teams near end of non-conference play

The University of San Francisco men’s basketball team beat Abilene Christian on Monday, a few days after recording its first first home loss of the season.

The Dons beat ACU, 85-51, with Charles Minlend and Ronnie Boyce each scoring 16 points.

USF lost to Portland State on Friday, 72-78, despite holding leads of 11 and 13 points at different points during the contest. But the Dons missed seven of their last eight free throws, allowing the Vikings back into the contest.

The team returns to action against Utah in the first game of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic, which begins Dec. 22.
