San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Johnny Dee made a pair of crucial free throws late, finishing with 15 points, as the San Diego Toreros slipped by Portland, 61-59, in a West Coast Conference showdown at Jenny Craig Pavilion.

Dee converted 3-of-6 behind the 3-point line on the night as well, his point total matched by Duda Sanadze, as the Toreros (15-14, 6-10 WCC) posted their second win in a row.

The Pilots (15-12, 7-8) were paced by Thomas van der Mars with a game-high 18 points, followed by Bobby Sharp and Bryce Pressley with 16 and 11 points, respectively, as they had a two-game win streak snapped.
