SAN FRANCISCO -- Cole Dickerson scored a career-high 30 points Saturday night, helping San Francisco close nonconference play with a 93-76 victory over Division II foe Dominican.
Dickerson, a junior, was 11 of 16 from the field and also pulled down 10 rebounds. De'End Parker added 20 points and seven assists, and freshman Mark Tollefsen recorded his own career high with 19 points for the Dons (7-6), who shot 56 percent from the floor. The win gave USF coach Rex Walters his 100th career victory.
The Penguins scored the first points of the game, but a 15-2 run put San Francisco ahead to stay. The Dons led by as many as 18 in the second half.
USF also won its only previous meeting with Dominican, in 2009.
