Henderson's 28 Points Leads USD to Overtime Win Over Portland

Feb. 24, 2007

Box Score

PORTLAND, Ore. - Behind freshman Morgan Henderson's career-high 28 points, the University of San Diego women's basketball team captured an exciting 81-75 overtime win over the University of Portland in both teams' regular season finale inside the Chiles Center Saturday afternoon.

With the score tied at 75-75 with 1:42 remaining, the Toreros hit key free throws down the stretch to claim the six-point win and move to 21-7 overall and 10-4 in the WCC. With the loss, the Pilots fall to 10-19 overall and 2-12 in the WCC.

Henderson scored her 28 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the three-point line, and she was a perfect 7-for-7 from the charity stripe, while also pulling down seven rebounds. Amanda Rego posted her eighth double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 assists. Amber Sprague was the final USD player in double figures as she scored 17 points and pulled down seven rebounds. As a team, USD shot 36.1 percent from the field and were out rebounded 46-39.

In the first half, both teams took their turn with the lead and USD would take their biggest lead of the first half at 19-14, thanks to a Henderson three-pointer with 12:03 remaining.

Portland responded with a 7-2 run sparked by a Kendra Morris jumper and capped with a pair of Morris free throws, moving the score to 21-21.

Then with the score at 23-23, the Pilots would use a 5-0 run to continue their momentum and eventually would build their lead up to as many as seven at 37-30 on a Nicole Rowe lay-up.

The Toreros would able to close that gap to four going into the break on a free throw by Rego.

In the second half, the Toreros game out on fire as they opened the frame with a 5-0 run sparked by a Kelly Winther jumper and capped by a Sprague free throw.

 

 

The two teams then battled back and forth over the next several minutes with neither team taking a lead bigger then four, but Portland was in control of the lead for the remainder of the half until Sprague hit a pair of free throws with 26 seconds remaining to even the score at 69-69 and sent it into overtime.

In the overtime period, again the teams kept things close as each team took their turn with the lead. Then with the score at 75-75, Rego hit a lay-up, followed by a pair of free throws and Sprague capped the scoring with as pair of free throws to give USD the six-point win.

The Toreros will now await the WCC conference office to announce the conference tournament pairing and time slots. USD will open play in the tournament on Thursday against the University of San Francisco, but the time slots have yet to be determined.
