February 15, 2004|From Associated Press

Pacific held No. 19 Utah State scoreless in the final 3:25, ending the Aggies' 17-game winning streak with a 64-60 victory Saturday night at Stockton.

The Aggies (20-2, 12-1 Big West), ranked for the first time since 1971, fell two victories short of the longest winning streak in school history. The streak also was the fourth-longest in the nation.

Miah Davis made four free throws in the final 28.2 seconds after Christian Maraker made a jump shot and two free throws to put the Tigers (17-7, 12-1) ahead for the first time since the opening minute.

Utah State had a 12-point lead with 10 1/2 minutes left but couldn't pull away.
