SAN DIEGO – The USD Toreros closed out their nonconference schedule with a 94-51 win over Life Pacific College. With the win the Toreros improved to 9-3 on the season heading into the Christmas break. Junior guard Isaiah Wright posted a double-double with 14 points and 12 assists, and junior forward Isaiah Pineiro notched a game-high 16 points.

“Tonight’s game was very important,” said head coach Lamont Smith. “You always want to go into conference play feeling good about yourselves. We close out the nonconference at 9-3 and play a game where we get everybody involved and gets a chance to play. So there is this great momentum going into conference play and even this holiday break. Everyone will get a couple of days off to enjoy it and get a little bit of a breather before we get ready for this grueling WCC play.”

In the first half the Toreros jumped out to a 15-9 lead by the first break behind six points from Tyler Williams who was getting his first start of the season. Life Pacific was led by guard Mark Eden who had eight of the team’s first nine points on the strength of two three-pointers. The Toreros would continue to extend their lead throughout the half and finally take a 43-24 halftime lead behind nine points from Isaiah Wright and eight more from Isaiah Pineiro. The Toreros out-rebounded the Warriors 27-13 and had totaled 7 blocked shots.

After the break Pineiro scored four straight points and the Toreros never looked back. Besides Pineiro and Wright, Tyler Williams and Yauhen Massalski each netted 14 points. Senior Cameron Neubauer snared 7 rebounds that was matched by Pineiro. Every Torero saw action tonight with twelve Toreros finishing in the scoring column.

For the game the Toreros finished with 10 team blocked shots, one off of the school record. Wright’s 12 assists were two shy of the Torero all-time mark. Despite an off night beyond the arc (8-26), the Toreros shot 52.9% from the field overall (36-68) and dished out 24 assists. Life Pacific (7-6) was paced by Jonathan Cortez with 15 points.

The Toreros open up West Coast Conference play on Thursday, December 28th, with a 6:00 p.m. contest at the Jenny Craig Pavilion against the San Francisco Dons (7-5).
