San Diego pulls away from Portland for 68-52 win

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Olin Carter III sank five 3-pointers and scored 24 points to lead San Diego in a 68-52 win over Portland on Saturday night.

Brett Bailey and Cameron Neubauer added 16 points apiece for San Diego, which bounced back from Thursday's loss to No. 3 Gonzaga by shooting 50 percent from the field and dominating on the boards, 37-13. Bailey also hauled in 12 rebounds to get his second double-double of the season.

The Toreros (11-11, 4-6 West Coast Conference) overtook Portland for good during a 12-2 spurt sparked by a 3-pointer from Mark Carbone and capped with Carter's third 3 of the game to make it 27-22 with 5:01 left in the opening half. They took a 38-30 advantage into the break and continued to pull away in the second half.
