CHENEY, Wash. - Senior guard Dominique Conners scored a season-high 20 points, and Amy Kameadded in 15 points, but it wasn't enough as the University of San Diego women's basketball (1-1) team dropped a 68-57 non-conference decision to Eastern Washington University (2-1) Thursday evening at Reese Court.
Conners scored her team-best 20 points on 8-for-17 shooting from the field, while recording two steals and nine rebounds. Kame was the only other Torero in double figures, as she recorded her 15 points on 5-for-16 shooting form the field, while pulling down six rebounds. As a team, USD shot .362 from the field, and out rebounded the home team 42-34.
Eastern scored the first seven points of the game, but a Kame free throw sparked a 10-6 Toreros run that sw three different San Diego players score at lease one point, and pulled San Diego back to within three at 13-10 with 13:58 to go. EWU would then respond with a 10-3 which gave them their first double-digit lead of the game at 23-13 with 9:44 to in the first half.
After Eastern pushed its lead to 11 at 27-16, a Felicia Wijenberglay-up ignited a 8-1 Torero run that was bookended on a pair of Kame free throws to pull the Toreros back to within four at 28-24 with 1:24 to go, but the Eagles managed to score the final bucket of the half to go into the break up 30-24.
In the second half, the Eagles managed to push their lead back up to double digits and took their biggest lead of the game at 45-32 with 14:51 to go. Then with the Eagles leading 48-38, a Kameron Knutsonlay-up sparked a 14-5 Torero run that pulled San Diego back to within striking distance at 50-46 with 8:47 to go. USD would eventually manage to tie the game up at 52-all on a Knutson lay-up with 6:14 to go, but the Eagles then closed out the final six minutes of the game on a 15-3 run to take home the victory.
San Diego will return to action on Saturday, as they travel to Seattle to take on Seattle University in a 12:15 p.m. non-conference game.
