Box Score

San Diego, CA- Benefiting from a career-high 18 points from Matt Dorr and a team-high 19 points from De'Jon Jackson, the University of San Diego men's basketball team paced their way to an 84-65 victory over Point Loma Nazarene on Wednesday night at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.

Dorr's career night included 7 of 10 shooting from the field with 4 of 7 from three-point range. He added five assists and two steals. Jackson, meanwhile, not only led the Toreros (2-1) with his 19 points, 16 of which came in the first half, but he contributed five three-pointers of his own. The 6-2 guard entered eight of the Toreros' first 12 points in the game, as he did not miss his first shot until the 11:40 mark in the first-half, making his first four shots in as many opportunities (3-for-3 from three-point range).

As a team, USD was 13-for-25 (52%) from beyond the arc. The 13 three-pointers fell one short of the school-record 14 last achieved against Pepperdine on March 5, 2005.

In addition to Dorr's career night, Roberto Mafra added a career-high 14 points on 6 of 10 shooting from the field, grabbing a game-high seven rebounds. Mafra blocked two shots as well, helping the Toreros tie the school record for blocks in a single game, which was set on January 9th, 1982 when the Toreros played Northeast Wesleyan.

The Toreros fought off Point Loma (1-2) in the opening half, trading baskets until USD went on an 18-6 run sparked by a Dorr three-pointer with six minutes left that brought the score to 25-24 USD. During the run, the Toreros shot 7-for-8 from the field, including four threes.

After the Toreros held a 42-33 halftime lead, the Sea Lions would narrow USD's lead to nine with 17:38 remaining in the game as Greg Murray, who scored a game-high 23 points for Point Loma, drained a three, bringing the score to 46-37.



USD would never allow the margin to get any closer, though, sealing the win by using a 14-5 run capped by Devin Ginty's third thee-pointer of the game at the 2:48 mark.

San Diego will travel to Anchorage, Alaska for their next slate of games. The Toreros will be participating in the Great Alaska Shootout, beginning the tournament with a November 25th game against the Oklahoma Sooners. Tip-off for the game is scheduled for 10:45 p.m. PT.
