Box Score

FULLERTON, Calif. - Behind the hot shooting of sophomore guard Malina Hood, the University of San Diego women's basketball team cruised its way to a 65-42 win over Cal State Fullerton Wednesday evening in a non-conference game at Titan Gym.

With the win, the Toreros improve to a program-best start of the season at 8-0, and they have now won seven consecutive contests against Fullerton. With the loss, the Titans fall to 1-6 overall.

Hood led all scorers with a career-high 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field, including hitting five 3-pointers. The second of three USD players in double figures was Amy Kame, who had 17 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field, and Felicia Wijenberg scored 10 points on 5-of-10 shooting from the field, while pulling down six rebounds. As a team, USD shot 48.1% from the field, and out rebounded the Titans 32-29.

In the first half, USD came out on a fire, as after the Titans scored the first basket of the game, a Wijenberg lay-up sparked a 9-0 Torero run to give USD all the momentum, and a 9-2 lead with 15:40 to go. The Toreros would continue to push forward, and a Hood 3-pointer with 10:20 to go, gave the Toreros their first double-digit lead of the game at 19-8.

San Diego didn't let up as they held the Titans to two baskets over the next seven minutes of action, meanwhile going on an 11-4 run, grabbing a 30-13 lead with 3:59 to go. San Diego then went on to build up a 21-point halftime lead at 42-21, thanks to Hood's fifth 3-pointer of the half with four seconds left.

In the second half, it was more of an even battle, as the Toreros outscored the Titans 23-21, while shooting 45.5% from the field, and holding the Titans to just 5-of-22 (22.7%) from the field for the frame.



San Diego will return to action on Sunday, as they host Seattle University in a 2 p.m. non-conference game at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
