Parker, Dickerson help USF escape with 75-72 win

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- De'End Parker scored 16 points and Cole Dickerson added 15 on Thursday night, helping San Francisco escape with a 75-72 victory over Portland.

San Francisco (9-11, 2-5 West Coast) won despite collecting just 17 rebounds.

The Dons made up for that discrepancy in other areas, hitting 16 of 17 free-throw attempts and building a 35-16 scoring advantage off the bench.

Dickerson hit three 3-point field goals and had three steals. Cody Doolin had seven assists.

Portland (8-13, 1-5) had a 37-33 lead at the half. It outscored USF 32-24 in the paint and had an 11-7 edge in second-chance points.

Ryan Nicholas led Portland with 23 points and Kevin Bailey scored 15.
