Box Score

MORAGA, Calif. - Behind a 29-point effort from junior guard Amy Kame, the University of San Diego women's basketball team held on to claim a 73-70 West Coast Conference win over league-leading Saint Mary's College Thursday evening.

After the Toreros built up a 17-point lead at 62-45 on the Gaels with 7:57 to go, SMC then launched a furious comeback. The Gaels would launch a 19-2 run over the next five minutes to pull to within one at 65-64 on a Kate Gaze 3-pointer with 2:04 to play. However this is as close as the Gels would get, as back-to-back lay-ups by Felicia Wijenbergand Kame gave USD back a 5-point lead with 1:01 to go. The Toreros would then hit key free throws down the stretch to hold on for the victory.

Kame led all scored with her 29 points on 11-of-20 shooting from the field, while also pulling down six rebounds and dishing out seven assists. Wijenbeg also had a good game, she notched her third consecutive double-digit performance with 13 points, and Sophia Ederainewas the final Torero in double figures, as she had 12 points. As a team, USD shot .508 from the field and held the Gales to just .379 shooting. The Toreros also managed to hold a slight 38-37 edge in the rebounds category.

In the first half, San Diego came out on fire, as a Maya Hoodlay-up sparked a 6-1 Torero run over the first two minutes of action. SMC then answered back with a 7-0 run to grab the lead at 8-6 with 14:43 to go.

Back-to-back Ederaine lay-ups then ignited a 8-2 Torero run that was bookended on a Wijenberg lay-up to give USD back the momentum and a 16-10 lead with 9:11 to go. The Toreros then slowly began to pull ahead and grabbed a 12-point lead on a Kame jumper with 3:43 to go. San Diego then was able to maintain that margin and took a 12-point lead into the break up 38-26.



In the second half, San Diego picked right up from where they left the first half, as they used a 7-0 run right out of the gates to grab a 45-26 lead. USD then kept the pedal to the medal and eventually built up a lead to as many at 22 on a Kame jumper with 13:21 to go. USD then managed to maintain that large margin until Danielle Mouldin lay-up began the Gaels come back with 7:57 to go.

The Toreros will return home to conclude the season series with Gonzaga on Saturday for a 2 p.m. WCC game inside the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
