The San Diego Toreros shined in their 75 to 44 victory over Northern Kentucky.
The Toreros displayed a balanced scoring attack in this contest, with three players scoring in double-digits and no player scoring more than 15 points. Dennis Kramer led the team with 15 points, and Duda Sandaze followed with 14.
Jito Kok led San Diego with 12 rebounds, accounting for more than one-fourth of the Toreros total rebounds. He also led the team in blocks with 3.
For Northern Kentucky, they were led by reserves Daniel Camps and Jake Giesler. Camps had 11 points and 7 rebounds, and Giesler corralled a team high 15 rebounds to go along with his 9 points.
The Toreros perimeter defense was phenomenal in this game. Northern Kentucky was a combined 3 for 28 from behind the 3-point arc, a stat directly attributed to its struggles in this contest. If the Toreros can defend the three-point line like this all season, the Toreros will be tough to beat as the year progresses.
The Toreros don’t play an up-tempo style of basketball by any means, but I think it is time they start. With point guard Christopher Anderson’s quickness and ability to fly down the court with the ball in his hands, the Toreros could be a potent up-tempo squad. By surrounding Anderson with shooters such as Johnny Dee (AKA Johnny Buckets) and Duda Sandze, the Toreros would excel in transition.
