SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's basketball team saw their four-game winning streak come to an end, with a heartbreaking 53-48 loss to Brigham Young University Thursday evening in a West Coast Conference game at the Merriott Center.

With the Cougars clinging to a three-point lead at 51-48 with just 19 seconds left, San Diego turned to sophomore sensation Katelyn McDaniel. McDaniel in turn launched a 3-pointer with eight seconds left, only it was blocked by BYU's Keilani Unga, and USD then fouled the Cougars with five seconds left. BYU would hit a pair of free throws with five seconds left to seal the win for BYU at 53-48.

Amy Kame led all scorers with 18 points on 6-of-15 shooting from the field, while also dishing out five assists. McDaniel was the only other Torero in double figures, as she had 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field. As a team, the Toreros shot .333 from the field, and were out rebounded 39-34.

In the first half, the Toreros came out firing on all cylinders, as a McDaniel jumper sparked a 8-1 Torero run over the first 2:12 of action. BYU then went on a 4-0 run, only to see a McDaniel lay-up then ignite a 6-0 San Diego run to take a 9-point edge at 14-9 with 15:13 to go.

BYU then responded with a 7-3 run over the next six minutes to pull back to within one at 17-16 with 9:31 to go. The two teams then sea sawed back and fourth for the remainder of the frame with the Toreros never surrendering the lead, and going into the break up two at 22-20.

In the second half, BYU opened the frame on a 10-3 run over the first five minutes of action to take a five-point lead at 30-25 with 14:29 to go. San Diego then managed to keep things close, and never trailed by more than five the remainder of the way. The two teams found themselves tied six times down the stretch, but in the end, the home team was abel to hold off the Toreros and claim the victory.

 

 

The Toreros will return to action on Monday, when they return to the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion, for a 7 p.m. WCC showdown with Pepperdine University.
