Toreros Win In Coach Smith’s Home Debut

Duda Sanadze nets 21 points in USD's home opener

The Toreros are undefeated at home in the La Mont Smith era.

Senior Duda Sanadze tallied a game-high 21 points to lead the Toreros to victory against scrappy Bethesda.

USD has now won back-to-back contests after an 0-5 start.

Junior Brett Bailey scored 9 points Wednesday night including a couple of and-1’s that sparked the Toreros.

USD trailed by 3 at intermission despite going just 1-14 from behind the arc in the first half.

But an early 8-0 run in the second half helped them grab the lead from the Flames.

USD faces cross-town rival San Diego State Sunday at 2 p.m. in the first college basketball game played at Petco Park.
