Dean exploded for 35 points as the Pacers opened conference play with a road win at Georgia Southwestern.  The junior guard hit 13 of 15 shots from the field, including a pair of three-pointers, along with seven free throws to lead the Pacers to a 103-72 win.  The 13 made field goals is the 10th-best mark in USCA history in the DII era and his 35 points is 11th-most in the same period.  He added five steals, four assists and three rebounds in only 28 minutes of work.  The 35 points is the most in a single game in the Peach Belt so far this season. Dean is now third in the PBC in scoring with 20.8 ppg; he is also 10th in the league in field goal percentage and fourth in steals.
