Box Score

MALIBU, Calif. - Behind the red hot shooting of the Toreros, and three players scoring 15 or more points, the University of San Diego women's basketball team cruised its way to a 79-61 West Coast Conference win over Pepperdine University Saturday afternoon at the Firestone Fieldhouse.

As a team, USD shot .582 from the floor, including a .607 shooting percentage in the first half. Katelyn McDaniel led all scorers with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field, while also pulling down eight rebounds. Klara Wischer was the second Torero in double figures, with 17 points, and just missed a double-double with eight assists, while Maya Hood added in n16 points and pulled down eight boards. The Toreros also dominated the boards with a 43-21 advantage for the game. USD also held the Waves to just .390 shooting from the floor.

In the first half, Pepperidne managed to grab the early momentum, as they raced out to a 12-7 lead with 15:03 to go. Then a Wischer lay-up ignited a 5-1 San Diego run that was capped on a McDaniel lay-up to pull the Toreros to within one at 13-12 with 12:58 to go.

The two teams then sea sawed back and forth a bit over the next few minutes with the Waves refusing to surrender the lead. Then with the Toreros trailing by one at 20-19, a Wischer jumper sparked a 12-1 USD run over the next three minutes to give the Toreros their first double-digit lead at 31-20 with 5:44 to go. USD would then manage to hang onto this lead and go into the break up 44-33.

Then in the second half, USD came out on fire, as Maya Hood stole the initial inbounds pass and returned it for a lay-up. After a Pepperdine basket, USD put together a 10-0 run over a span of two minutes to take complete control of the game with a 56-35 with 16:44 to go.

 

 

Pepperdine just could not overcome this deficit, as the Toreros kept the pedal to the medal and eventually would build up a lead to as many as 25 on a Sophia Ederaine jumper in the paint with 6:58 to go, to give USD a 74-39 lead. San Diego never looked back as they cruised their way to a 79-61 victory.

USD will return to action on Thursday, when they host Santa Clara University in a 7 p.m. WCC game inside the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
