The home streak for the Bulldogs (16-4, 5-1 West Coast Conference) had been tied with Long Beach State (from 1968-74) for the eighth-longest in Division I history.
Shelton scored 27 points to lead the Lions (14-7, 4-3), who hadn’t won in Spokane since 1991 and had lost 25 straight overall to the Zags.
LMU stuns No. 6 Gonzaga
The Bulldogs saw their nation-leading 75-game home winning streak come to an end.
Gonzaga’s streak of 36 straight wins in the month of January also ended. The Bulldogs had won 11 straight overall since losing to Baylor on Dec. 2.
LMU led 66-59 with 2:55 left after Shelton’s 3-pointer, but the Zags scored the next eight points to take 67-66 lead on Drew Timme’s free throw with 41 seconds elft. With the shot clock running down, Shelton converted a runner from just outside the lane to give the Lions the lead, and Timme’s last attempt at a winner was partly blocked by Leaupepe.
Timme led the Zags with 17 points.
Auburn now has the longest home winning streak, which is 28 straight.
