SAN DIEGO (AP) — D.J. Gay scored seven of his game-high 22 points in overtime to lead San Diego State to a 69-62 win over San Diego on Wednesday night.

It was the fourth straight win in the crosstown rivalry for the Aztecs (5-2).

Brandon Johnson scored 21 points for San Diego (4-3) and almost single-handedly brought the Toreros back from a 40-28 deficit in the second half.

Both teams went cold in the final two minutes of regulation, which ended with a 52-52 tie.

SDSU played for the final shot, but Johnson stole the ball and turned it back over with four-tenths of a second left. SDSU's long inbounds pass was knocked down by Matt Dorr.

SDSU scored the first eight points of overtime, including a jumper by Gay, for a 60-52 lead with 2:02 remaining.
