SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Torero women's basketball team (20-6, 9-6) held off a late rally by the Pilots (15-11, 7-8) to secure a 59-52 win on senior day. Senior Amy Kame stuffed the stat sheet, finishing with 23 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and seven steals to help the Toreros finish the season 14-1 at home. Kame now has the fourth most points in Torero history, passing Sam Child (2007-11).
The Toreros held a lead for the final 36 minutes of action, but the Pilots went on a late run to close the deficit to three points with 1:24 remaining. The Toreros didn't allow Portland to score again and hit their free throws down the stretch to earn their 20th victory of the season.
After falling behind 4-0 early on, the Toreros went on a 15-0 run to take a 15-4 lead with 12:20 left. The Toreros would hold the lead for the rest of the game behind tough defense. The Pilots didn't crack double-digits until there was 3:36 left in the first half and committed 12 first-half turnovers as the Toreros held a 30-21 lead at half. Malina Hood led all scorers with 12 points at the break.
The Toreros shot only 33 percent in the second half, but Kame's 15 second-half points carried the Toreros to the win. Malina Hood scored 16 points and Sophia Ederaine chipped in seven points, seven rebounds, and four blocks.
