Sunday - 11/24/2013, 2:29am  ET

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) -- Andrew Bock scored 19 points as Pacific pulled away from Fresno State with an 86-77 victory Saturday night.

Pacific (4-0) had four players score double-digits, including a career-high 16 points and 12 rebounds from Khalil Kelley. Sama Taku had 16 points, shooting 5-for-8 from beyond the arc.

Pacific led by only three with 11 minutes remaining, but was able to create enough separation to pull away late in game. Sparked by Kelley's bucket, the Tigers outlasted the Bulldogs with a 21-9 run down the stretch.

Fresno State (3-2) built an early lead but neither team led by more than four points in the first half.

Pacific, who led only 27-26 at half, went on an 11-5 run to start the second capped by a Taku 3-pointer.

Fresno State's Tyler Johnson posted a game-high 25 points.

Pacific goes on to play No. 17 Oregon next week.
