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.
Mike Krzyzewski says he has good reason to be excited for next season thanks to a combination of Duke's incoming freshmen and a core of experienced upperclassmen.
Georgia guard Juwan Parker has been awarded a medical redshirt, leaving him with two years of eligibility, after missing the 2015-16 season with a partially torn Achilles tendon.
Forward Trevon Bluiett has withdrawn from consideration from the NBA draft and will return to Xavier for his junior season.
