San Diego sophomore guard Johnny Dee scored a game-high 24 points and made all four of his free-throw attempts in the final 13 seconds to lead the Toreros to a 66-63 win over visiting Morgan State on Saturday night.
San Diego senior guard Cameron Miles scored nine of his 12 points in the second half but almost cost the Toreros (7-8) the game at the free-throw line.
He made 1 of 4 foul shots in the last two minutes. After missing a free throw on a one-and-one situation with 26 seconds left, Morgan State's Blake Bozeman made two free throws with 21 seconds left to cut the lead to 62-60.
Dee converted two free throws with 13 seconds left to give San Diego a 64-60 lead. Morgan State's Dewayne Jackson responded with a 3-pointer to cut the lead to one point with eight seconds remaining.
Dee was fouled by Justin Black on the inbounds play and made the two free-throw attempts with six seconds remaining. A last-second 3-pointer by Black was off the mark at the buzzer.
Black kept Morgan State (3-7) in the game, making consecutive jumpers, including a 3-pointer with 5:26 left in regulation that gave the Bears a 56-55 lead. It was Morgan State's first lead since 2:30 remained before halftime.
Morgan State would not make a field goal again Jackson's 3-pointer with eight seconds left. San Diego went on a 6-1 run, converting on its next three possessions after Black's three-pointer, to build a 61-56 lead with 3:48 remaining.
Morgan State has yet to play a home game. The Bears started with three games in the Old Dominion Tournament in Norfolk, Va. They followed that with seven consecutive road games, culminating with Saturday's game at San Diego.
They play their first home game Jan. 5 against St. Joseph's.
