James Nunnally, who scored 20 points, opened the game with back to back threes. Nunnally scored 12 of those 20 in the first half. Nunnally and Orlando combined for 59% of the points last night.
Another thing that was good for the Gauchos was PG Justin Joyners return. He sat out all of last year with injury and missed the first two games with an ankle sprain. He only played 2 minutes but should see lots more action in the next few games.
San Francisco got it close after the Gauchos early run by getting the halftime score to 33-28.
Then Nunnally opened the half with a jumper and the lead for the rest of the game stayed above 4 points.
Dior Lowhorn led the Dons with 26 points.
The Gauchos go on the road for one game when they take on Loyola Marymount on Saturday.
