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.
The Toreros finish the regular season with three road games. They will play at LMU on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
