STOCKTON – The Toreros dropped a 74-70 decision at the University of the Pacific Thursday evening at the Alex G. Spanos Center before 1,369 fans. Despite 23 points from Isaiah Pineiro, the Toreros couldn’t overcome Pacific’s free throw shooting as they made 33-of-35 (94.3%). The Toreros were limited to just 15 attempts with 11 makes. Tyler Williams (20) and Isaiah Wright (13) also reached double-digit scoring. Pacific was paced by Miles Reynolds with 17 points.

“If you don’t protect the ball you lose games,” said head coach Lamont Smith. “We gave up 17 points off of turnovers. I thought we did a good enough job outside of our fouling. We’ll have to figure that out. They got to the free throw line. They shot 35 and we shot 15. We need to adjust. We’ll go back and watch film and see what we need to do differently.”

In the first half Pacific opened the scoring but San Diego answered with an 8-0 run behind threes from Tyler Williams and Isaiah Pineiro in taking an 8-2 lead. The Tigers answered with two straight threes from Miles Reynolds to even the score. Isaiah Wright buried a trey at the 14:58 mark and Williams scored on a lay-in to make it 13-8 at the 12:33 mark. The Tigers took a 17-15 lead off a three-ball but Williams connected on his second trey and Carter laid one in up the middle for a 20-17 edge. Buckets from Pineiro and Alex Floresca pushed USD’s lead to 24-20. A Jack Williams three gave the Tigers a 25-24 lead with 2:24 left and that score would hold heading into the halftime break. Williams (8 points) and Pineiro (7) paced the Toreros in the first 20 minutes of action.

After the break a Pineiro three-ball knotted the score at 27-all and a Carter trey from the right corner gave the Toreros a 30-29 lead. A Jack Williams jumper from the right baseline gave the Tigers a 36-32 advantage. Pineiro’s third made trey followed by a fade-away jumper gave USD a 39-38 lead with 12:04 to go. Seven straight team points by Jahlil Tripp gave the Tigers a 47-41 lead with 9:35 left and Kendall Small’s lay-in would push it to 49-41 at 9:07. Cameron Neubauer’s three from the top would get the Toreros within five at 49-44. Two free throws from Jack Williams extended the Tigers lead to a 55-47 advantage with 4:36 left. Wright made the front end of two free throws to get within 57-50 following the 4-minute media timeout.

In the closing three minutes the Toreros would trail by as many as 13 at 63-50 before rallying to within five at 68-63 following two free throws from Williams with 23 seconds left. On the in-bounds play the Toreros would grab a loose ball on the floor but in the scramble call a timeout when they didn’t have one. Pacific converted both charities to make it 70-63 but the Toreros would answer with a Williams three-ball to make it 70-66. Dorsey would get fouled and make both free throws before Wright would answer with a lay-up to make it 72-68. Dorsey would add two more charities before Juwan Gray closed out the scoring with a tip-in for the final scoring.

For the game USD shot 48.0% from the field (24-50) and out-rebounded the Tigers 34-29. The Toreros converted 11-of-24 three-pointers and held the Tigers to no three-pointers in the second half as they finished the game 5-of-16. For USD, Pineiro made 9-of-14 shots from the field, including 4-of-5 beyond the arc. Tyler Williams made 4-of-7 threes and 6-of-9 overall on his way to matching his career-high of 20 points.

The Toreros (12-5, 3-2 WCC) return to the Jenny Craig Pavilion this Saturday, January 13, to take on the LMU Lions in a 7:00 p.m. contest (Spectrum Sports Net; ESPN 1700AM).
