SAN DIEGO – Stuck in a 21-point hole at the break, the SDC Men's Basketball team fought hard in the second to make it a game as they dropped the exhibition against the University of San Diego 71-61 Sunday.
The Toreros used a strong first half to take control of the contest as they held a 43-22-intermission lead on the strength of shooting 60 percent from the floor (18-30). The Torero defense held the Hawks to just 25.9 percent shooting in the first half, but it was a different story in the second half.
The Hawks continued to battle and found their shooting touch over the final 20 minutes outscoring the Toreros 39-28. SDC shot 51.9 percent in the second half (14-27) while holding the Toreros to just 32.0 percent shooting (8-25).
The Toreros were still up by 20 (53-33) with 14:03 to go before the Hawks rallied to get within nine at 67-58 with 1:59 to go on a jumper by Rafael Rodriguez (SR/Santiago, Dominican Republic).
Derrick Thompson (SR/San Diego, CA) scored a game-high 15 points, with Peter Beale-Wirsing (SR/San Diego, CA) (14 points) and Daniel Nielsen (JR/Grandview, WA) (12 points) also reaching double-digits.
