Box Score

SAN DIEGO, CA - Playing in their road blue uniforms across town Tuesday night on the San Diego State campus, the USD Toreros made themselves right at home, defeating the Aztecs 67-57 in front of the largest crowd to watch an SDSU women's game at Cox Arena in over four years. USD (1-2) overcame foul trouble and a late SDSU (0-2) run to allow Cindy Fisher a victory over Beth Burns in the first meeting between the two local schools since both made coaching changes during the off season.

Toreros junior center Sabine Loewe scored all 12 of her points in the second half, including a pivotal basket in the paint to put the Toreros up by four, 59-55, with 1:28 remaining. USD made 8-of-10 free throws down the stretch to win its first game of the year- marking the fourth straight season the Toreros have beaten SDSU.

Loewe balanced out a San Diego offense that saw junior guard Ashley Voisinet match a career-high with 12 points (all in the first half). Voisinet converted a transition bucket with five minutes remaining in the opening period to put USD up 23-22 (one of seven first-half lead changes) and Amanda Rego added a lay-up as time expired to give the visiting Toreros a 31-26 halftime advantage.

In the opening moments of the second half, a series of USD free throws, fueled by a technical foul on Aztec freshman guard Tamika Lipford, extended the Toreros lead to nine. A three-point basket by senior Lindsay Helvey on USD's next offensive possession forced SDSU to take a timeout- facing its biggest deficit, 40-28, with 16:34 on the clock.

Led by a game-high 20 points supplied by senior guard Michelle Strawberry, the Aztecs went on a spirited 16-2 run to regain the lead, 51-48, with 6:15 on the game clock.

USD senior Polly Dong immediately answered by swishing in a three-point shot from the right side of the key and Helvey followed with another trey to put USD up for good 54-51 with 4:04 to play.

The Toreros will travel to Seattle, Washington later this week to compete in the 2005 Husky Classic (Washington, Rice & Pennsylvania) Saturday-Sunday, November 26-27.
