SAN DIEGO -- The USD Toreros hosted the Arizona State Sun Devils in a charity exhibition this evening at the Jenny Craig Pavilion before 757 fans. All of the funds raised from tickets will go to Catholic Charities, USA toward relief efforts in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria. Arizona State held on for an 85-77 win in a competitive game that was closer than the final score. A big thank you goes to ASU for making this game happen in a short amount of time.

In a very competitive first half the Sun Devils took a 48-45 lead into the intermission break. The Toreros were paced by senior Cameron Neubauer with 14 points and junior Olin Carter III with 10 points and five rebounds. The Toreros converted 6-of-18 three pointers and out-rebounded ASU 23-18. The visitors' were led by guards Tra Holder (15 points) and Austin Witherill (13 points). ASU made their first five three-pointers in the game.

In the second half the Toreros stayed close as they never trailed by more than six points through the first 11 minutes of action. A driving lay-in from Isaiah Wright, followed by back-to-back three-pointers from Carter pushed the Toreros ahead 72-71 with 6:12 to go. At the 4:12 mark a Hunter Summy three ball gave the Toreros a 75-74 edge, but the Sun Devils closed out the game on an 11-2 run to put the game away.

Junior guard Olin Carter III paced three Toreros in double-digit scoring with 19 points. He was followed by Isaiah Pineiro (15 points, 7 rebounds) and Cameron Neubauer (14 points). Jose Martinez, a sophomore forward from Puerto Rico, turned in some quality play with 8 points and 4 rebounds in 11 minutes of action. ASU had four players reach double-digits with guards Remy Martin (25 points) and Tra Holder (21 points) leading the way.

The Toreros open up their regular-season schedule on Sunday, November 12th, with a road contest at San Jose State (2:00 p.m.). The contest will air on ESPN 1700 AM with Jack Cronin on the call.
