Devon Turk defense, 25 points with six rebounds was too much for the Ramblers.

 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Devon Turk scored 25 points with six rebounds and Loyola of Chicago knocked off San Diego 67-57 in the Great Alaska Shootout.

Turk was 10 of 15 from the floor, including five 3-pointers, and the Ramblers (4-1) shot 50 percent as a team. Earl Peterson added 13 points with six assists and Milton Doyle chipped in with 11 points and five helpers.

Duda Sanadze's 3-pointer with 12:10 left put San Diego up 44-42, but Loyola scored the next seven points — including a 3 by Turk — and never trailed again.

There was one basket in the first 4 minutes of the game — a layup by Peterson. San Diego used an 11-4 run midway through the first to take its first lead and Sanadze's 3-pointer with 49 seconds gave the Toreros a 28-25 lead at the break.

Sanadze led San Diego (0-4) with 20 points and eight boards. Brett Bailey finished with 13 points.
