San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Johnny Dee scored a game-high 27 points as he guided the San Diego Toreros to a convincing 77-60 win over the Siena Saints as part of the 2012 NUCDF Basketball Challenge at Jenny Craig Pavilion.
Dee shot 4-of-6 behind the three-point line and knocked down all nine of his opportunities at the free-throw line as well for the Toreros (3-2), not to mention clearing five rebounds and making three steals for the hosts.
