SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Junior guard Amanda Rego recorded 14 assists to set the new University of San Diego single-game record for assists in helping lead the Toreros to a 76-46 pounding over cross-town rival San Diego State University Sunday afternoon in a non-conference game at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.

With the win, the Toreros are off to the best start in program history at 3-0 and have claimed their fifth consecutive win over the Aztecs. With the loss, SDSU falls to 1-2 on the young season.

Rego not only recorded a program-record 14 assists, but also added 10 points to record her second double-double of the season. Sophomore guard Kelly Winther was the second Torero in double figures as she poured in 12 points and Amber Sprague added 10 points to go along with nine rebounds. All but one Torero who stepped on the floor today recorded at least two points with Sara VanderHorst scoring nine in only eight minutes on the floor. The Toreros shot 42 percent for the game and out rebounded the Aztecs 45-33.

"I just thought Amanda Rego played an awesome game for us today. I thought she showed great leadership for us on the floor. Defensively, she had great positioning and to have 14 assists in a game like this I think shows what a great leader she is," said head coach Cindy Fisher. "I knew we were going to have to out work them because any rivalry is going to be close. I told them to take care of the little things, like making sure they get every lose ball, every box out and I thought that they really concentrated on doing the little things well to make sure the game didn't get close."

Shanna Demus, who recorded a team-high 11 points, led SDSU offensively. Both Jennifer Layton and Desiree Johnson recorded nine points apiece respectfully. USD's defense held the Aztecs to 29 percent shooting from the floor.

 

 

Emotions had the best of both teams early on in the contest as the Aztecs took their only lead of the game at 2-0, but the teams were then battling back and fourth until each team was locked up at 6-6. The Toreros then went on a 6-0 run to break free from the Aztecs.

USD would then explode and built their lead to as many as 29 when Alcha Strane hit a pair of free throws with 2:15 remaining in the first half to move the score to 34-15. The Aztecs then closed the gap to 16 by the end of the half.

In the second period, it was all Toreros as USD opened the period with a 7-3 run sparked by Kiva Herman lay-up and capped by a Rego lay-up. The Toreros never looked back as they would build their lead to as many as 34 before settling for a 30 point victory. For the first 12:27 of the second period SDSU only made two field goals as the Toreros outscored them 26-9 during this stretch.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday as they host Georgia Tech University in a 7 p.m. game at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
