SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind a double-double from junior forward Katelyn McDaniel, the University of San Diego women's basketball team cruised past Weber State (3-3), 75-55, to remain perfect on the season at 7-0, marking the best start in program history.
McDaniel recorded her second consecutive double-double, as she scored a career-high 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting from the field, while pulling down 10 rebounds. Amy Kame was the only other Torero in double figures, as she scored 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field, while dishing out four assists, pulling down four rebounds, and recording two steals. Ten of the 11 Toreros that saw time on the court today recorded at least two points, as USD shot 47.4% from the field, and they held a 48-23 advantage in the rebounding category.
The Toreros came out of the gates on fire, as they used pressure defense to force turnovers, and on the other end, USD's high tempo offense caught the Wildcats off guard, as USD opened the game on a 12-0 run to grab all the early momentum. After Weber State hit their first basket with 14:19 to go, the Toreros would keep the pedal to the medal, and an Alysse Barlowlay-up then sparked a 8-4 run over the next four minutes of action to give USD a 16-point lead at 22-6 with 10:54 to go.
WSU then been to slowly chip away at the lead and got to within 11 at 26-15 on a Desiree Ramos lay-up with 5:48 to go. However, a pair of Katherine Hamiltonfree throws then sparked a 7-0 USD run to give the Toreros their biggest lead of the half at 33-15 with 4:06 to play in the frame. USD would then maintain a double-digit lead the rest of the way, going into the break up 38-25.
In the second half, USD once again came out on fire, and went right to work, as they used as 13-6 run to gain its first 20-point lead off the game at 51-31 with 14:41 to go. USD then would maintain that 20-point margin for the rest of thee half, and eventually built up a lead to as many as 24 on a pair of Malina Hoodfree throws with 4:36 to go. This deficit proved to be too much for the Wildcats to overcome, as USD eased its way to a 75-55 win.
San Diego will return to action on Wednesday, as they head up to Orange County to take on the Titans of Cal State Fullerton in a 7 p.m. non-conference game at Titan Gym.
