USD Toreros Spear SDSU Aztecs in Debut of College Hoops at Petco Park
The University of San Diego (USD) Toreros defeated the San Diego State University (SDSU) Aztecs 53-48 in the first non-conference collegiate basketball game ever played at Petco Park on Saturday evening, December 6.
With the victory by USD, the Aztecs nine-game winning streak in the City Championship series has now come to a screeching halt.
It was all Toreros in the first half as USD took a 31-13 lead into the locker room at halftime.
“We grew up today,” said Toreros coach Lamont Smith. “Obviously, when you win a game of this magnitude over a tremendous basketball program like them (SDSU) and Coach Fisher, I think it will help us in recruiting.”
Duda Sanadze paced USD in scoring with a game-high 15 points, while also adding six rebounds, five steals, and one assist to the Toreros triumph.
Sanadze was followed in the USD statistical column by Olin Carter III (12 points, five rebounds, one assist, one block), Marcus Harris (nine points, four rebounds, three steals), Brett Bailey (eight points, seven rebounds, four assists), Brandon Perry (four points, five rebounds, one assist, two blocks), Jito Kok (three points, one rebound, two assists, three blocks), Tyler Williams (two points, two rebounds, one assist), and Vasa Pusica (zero points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal).
