SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's basketball (13-17, 6-9) fell to San Francisco (14-15, 7-9) 83-70 Thursday night at the Jenny Craig Pavilion dropping their fifth game in a row. The Toreros knocked off the Dons 70-66 on the road January 10th, but could not slow down the Dons' offense this go-around.

The Toreros found themselves in a hole early after the Dons rattled off an 18-2 run to start the game, fueled by 11 early points from Cole Dickerson. The Toreros, who shot 47 percent in the opening half, got within 10 points at the 8:32 mark. Even though the Toreros' baskets were falling, the Dons were able to respond every time and took a 52-35 lead into halftime fueled by 68 percent shooting from the field.

The Toreros battled back and were able to put together a run to start the second half and cut the deficit to single-digits at 62-53 with 11:36 remaining. However, the Dons hot-shooting continued into the second half and the Toreros couldn't keep up as San Francisco their lead to back to double-digits on their way to a 83-70 victory.

The Toreros were led by Ken Rancifer's 17 points. Johnny Dee and Cameron Miles each chipped in 15 points and Chris Manresa recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Christopher Anderson had a game-high eights assists despite fouling out. Miles' 15 points was a career-best for the senior guard from Dallas.

Cole Dickerson posted a double-double for the Dons with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Mark Tollefsen (19), Cody Doolin (16), and De'End Parker (11) all chipped in double-digits points for the Dons as well.



With the loss, the Toreros now trail the Dons by a half game for fifth place in the WCC. The Toreros can tie the Dons with a win over Pepperdine on Saturday.
