SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Behind a 26-point effort from Dominique Conners and a 20-point effort from Sam Child, the University of San Diego women's basketball team (10-7, 1-3 WCC) snapped its four-game losing skid with a 72-60 win over the University of San Francisco (3-14, 0-3 WCC) Saturday afternoon in a West Coast Conference game at War Memorial Gym.

Conners scored her season-high 26 points on 7-for-11 shooting form the field as well as going 12-for-13 from the charity stripe. Child scored her 20 points on 8-for-15 shooting from the field, while also pulling down seven rebounds. Emily Hatch was the third Torero in double figures as she scored 10 points and pulled down eight rebounds, and Morgan Woodrow was the final USD player in double figures as she scored 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting. As a team, USD shot .418 form the floor and were out rebounded 35-32.

In the first half, it was a pretty even battle in the early going as USD grabbed the early lead at 3-0 on Hatch free throw and a Child jumper, and the Toreros held onto the lead for the first nine minutes of action. The Dons would grab their first led of the game at the 10:31 mark as Katy Keating hit a 3-pointer to give USF a 20-18 lead. After the Dons grabbed a four-point edge at 22-18, a Conners jumper then jump started a 9-0 Torero run to give USD a 27-22 lead with 5:49 to go. The Dons would then close that gap down to three going into the break with USD leading 32-29.

In the second half, San Diego came out hitting on all cylinders, as a Woodrow 3-pointer jump started a 12-2 Torero run to give USD all the momentum and a 44-31 lead with 16:25 to go. Hatch then got fouled shooting a 3-pointer, and she hit all three free throws to give USD a 47-33 lead with 14:52 to go. The Dons would claw their way back it to game and managed to keep USD just 9-12 points ahead for a majority of the frame, until finally USD was able to hold off one last USF run, and hit their free throws down the stretch to come out with the victory.



San Diego will return to action on Wednesday when they travel to Northridge to take on the Matadors of Cal State Northridge in the final non-conference game of the season. Tip-off is set for 5 p.m.
