LOS ANGELES -- Isaiah Pineiro had a career-high 29 points on 10-of-14 shooting and handed out nine assists to help San Diego beat Loyola Marymount 89-82 on Saturday.
The Toreros (15-7, 6-4 West Coast Conference) led by double digits for most of the second half and Pineiro's jumper with 1:20 left made it 84-69. The Lions (6-15, 1-9) rallied to get as close as five in the final seconds.
San Diego took control in the first half with a 29-5 run capped by a Pineiro free throw at 34-14. The Toreros led by as many as 23 in the first half and went into the break with a 47-31 lead.
Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott believes a tentative ruling making show-cause orders illegal in California would threaten NCAA membership for state schools.
Guard James Bouknight, ranked 87th in the ESPN 100, is the first player from the Class of 2019 to commit to UConn and first-year coach Dan Hurley.
Increased opportunities will result in increased production from these soon-to-be familiar names.
