San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Johnny Dee poured in 27 points and the San Diego Toreros used a late run to overcome the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, 74-70, as part of the USD Classic at Jenny Craig Pavilion.

Dee shot 9-of-17 from the field for San Diego (1-0), including 6-of-12 from 3- point range. Duda Sanadze chipped in 14 points, while Christopher Anderson (11 points, eight assists) and Dennis Kramer (nine points, 10 rebounds) both narrowly missed double-doubles.
