SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's basketball team (22-9) defeated Hawaii 61-49 in the first round of the Women's N.I.T. Thursday night at the Jenny Craig Pavilion. The Toreros will now travel to take on Utah on Monday at 6:00 p.m. in the second round of the Women's N.I.T.

The Toreros, who hadn't played in ten days, were fueled by a strong defensive performance, holding the Rainbow Wahine to 31% shooting from the field and outrebounding them 41-27.

The Toreros were paced by junior guard Amy Kame's 19 points. Malina Hood also chipped in 11 points, going 3-3 from the field and 5-5 from the line.

Hawaii scored the first basket of the game, but that would be the only lead the Rainbow Wahine would have all evening. The Toreros held a 17-16 lead with 9:12 left, but then would not allow a Hawaii field goal for the next nine minutes which fueled an 11-2 run.

The Toreros, who took a 28-21 lead into the locker room at halftime, opened up the second half on an 8-2 run to put them up by double-digits. Playing behind strong defense and efficient offense (61 percent shooting in the second half), the Toreros' lead would stay in double-digits for the majority of the game. Hawaii was able to shrink the lead to nine at 56-47 with 3:17 left, but that would be as close as they would get.
