Box Score

GREELEY, Colo. - Behind a 22-point effort from Amy Kame and a double-double from Sophia Ederaine, the University of San Diego women's basketball team picked up a 69-56 win over the University of Northern Colorado in their season-opener Saturday afternoon.

Kame scored her game-high 22 points on 6-of-19 shooting from the field, while falling just one rebound short of a double-double. Ederaine came off the bench to score a career-high 16 points and pulled down a career-high 14 rebounds to post a double-double, while Malina Hood (12 points) and Felicia Wijenberg (11 points) were also in double-figures. As a team, USD shot 32.8% from the field and out rebounded the Bears 51-31.

Northern Colorado opened the game on a 13-3 run to grab all the momentum with 14:23 to go. The Bears maintained a 7-10 point lead over the next five minutes of action. Then with USD trailing 21-12, a pair of Kame free throws sparked a 10-0 run over the next five minutes of action to give USD a one-point lead at 22-21 with 6:00 to go in the first half. The two teams then began to trade basket-for-basket for the remainder of the frame, but UNC managed to hang on to a 34-30 lead going into the break.

In the second half, San Diego came out firing on all cylinders, as a Kame lay-up sparked a 13-0 run over the first 5:27 of action to take a 43-34 lead with 14:33 to go. USD then kept the pedal to the medal and went on to build up a lead to 11 on a pair of Hood free throws to take a 47-36 lead with 11:24 to go. San Diego never looked back, as they went on to lead by as many as 16, before settling for the 13-point win.

USD will return to action on Wednesday when they host Arizona State University in their home-opener at 5:15 p.m. inside the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
