Final Stats

(San Diego, CA) - The USD Toreros (2-2) fought hard against a very long and athletic Tulsa Hurricane (3-0) squad, but a cold shooting spell over the final 20 minutes left them with a 63-51 loss in tonight's second game of the NUCDF Basketball Challenge. In the first game Cal State Northridge (4-0) held off Siena College (1-2) by the score of 68-64. Sophomore guard Johnny Dee paced the Toreros in scoring with 17 points, while backcourt mate Christopher Anderson chipped in with 11 points and 7 steals. The steals mark ties the USD single game record set by three other Toreros.

In the first half the Toreros jumped out to an 8-0 lead as Dee canned a three and added a layup to score a quick 5 points 3 ½ minutes into the contest. Tulsa answered with their own 8-0 run with two three-pointers of their own by Scottie Harrison and Rashad Ray. The score stayed close the rest of the half with USD leading 24-22 with 22 seconds to go. Tulsa took the lead into the intermission break as Zeldric King converted a three-pointer just before the buzzer. Dee had 12 points at the break for USD.

In the second half the Toreros just couldn't buy a basket as they were only able to convert on 28.0% of their attempts (7-25). Tulsa was able to surge ahead to a double-digit lead (39-29) five minutes into the 2nd half and the Toreros were unable to stage any kind of serious rally. Tulsa got a big boost off the bench from 6-8 freshman forward D'Andre Wright who notched a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Forward Rashad Smith and guard James Woodard each chipped in with 12 points.

The Toreros are now off until Sunday when they face Siena in the 1:00 p.m. contest (FSSD telecast; XX 1090 AM radio broadcast). The NUCDF Basketball Challenge continues Saturday with two more games beginning at 5:00 pm. Tulsa takes on Cal State Northridge in the first contest, and Northern Kentucky faces Siena at 7:30 pm.
