Final Stats

(Highland Heights, KY) - The USD Toreros dealt the host Northern Kentucky Norse (0-3) a 75-44 defeat to improve to 4-0 on the season. Despite the lopsided score, this was a solid win for San Diego as NKU recently played Purdue on the road to a 1-point decision (77-76 loss). Senior Dennis Kramer led a balanced attack with 15 points and 5 rebounds in 26 minutes of action. He was followed by Duda Sanadze (14 points, all in the 2nd half), Christopher Anderson (10 points) and Jito Kok (career-best 12 rebounds, 7 points, 3 blocks). Johnny Dee, the team's leading scorer through the first three games, chipped in with 9 points.

"I really felt we won with our defense tonight," said head coach Bill Grier. "We really guarded well. This is a team that almost upset Purdue on the road. We also got really good play off the bench tonight - Chris Sarbaugh, Brett Bailey and Thomas Jacobs. We put the gas pedal on and didn't let up. We accomplished our mission, learning how to win on the road. I'm just elated for our group to get two road wins on this trip."

Northern Kentucky jumped out to an early 5-2 lead in the first three minutes of action, but after that it was all USD as the Toreros would take a 32-21 intermission lead and then build their advantage to as many as 33 points with less than one minute to play. The 31 point win is the team's biggest margin of victory since last year's season opener against San Diego Christian (+33, 9-58). Every Torero on the road trip saw action and at the end of the contest Nick Kerr and Therone Tillett each buried a trey for their first points of the season.



For the game USD shot 52.0% from the floor (26-50), 42.9% from beyond the arc (6-14) and 70.8% from the free throw line (17-24). USD outrebounded NKU, 44-40, but gave up 21 offensive rebounds to the Norse. Northern Kentucky was paced by Daniel Camps (11 points) and Jake Giesler (9 points, 15 rebounds).

The Toreros return home to host San Diego Christian College on Thursday, November 21st. The 7pm game will be the first annual ALS Basketball Classic at Jenny Craig Pavilion to raise awareness of ALS and to give hope to the brave San Diegans who are fighting Lou Gehrig's Disease.
