Tulsa Runs Away From San Diego

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO, California -

Freshman D'Andre Wright scored 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Tulsa to a 63-51 win over San Diego in the NUCDF Basketball Challenge Friday evening at Jenny Craig Pavilion.

In a game very similar to the one the Golden Hurricane played Thursday, TU (3-0) fell behind early, kept the score close at halftime, and used a big second half to take home a double-digit win.

Tulsa led, 25-24, at the intermission and opened the second half on a 12-4 run to extend its halftime lead to 37-29 by the 15:33 mark. Following the initial media timeout, the Hurricane scored four quick points to make the score, 41-29, with 14:51 left in the game.

The Hurricane shot 44 percent and held the Toreros (2-2) to 34 percent shooting from the field. TU outrebounded USD, 39-26, as it cruised to the 12-point win.

Rashad Smith and James Woodard added 12 points for Tulsa.

The Golden Hurricane plays Cal State Northridge at 7 p.m. CT Saturday to close out the NUCDF Challenge.
