Final Stats

Katelyn McDaniel.


SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind another balanced offensive attack, the University of San Diego women's basketball team rolled past Seattle University, 79-56, Sunday afternoon to remain perfect on the season at 9-0.

With the win, the Toreros not only remain undefeated, but continue to mark the best start in program history. Seattle on the other hand, fell to 3-6 overall, and suffered their second consecutive loss.

Katelyn McDaniel recorded her third double-double in the past four games, as she scored 17 points, on 7-of-12 shooting from the field, while pulling down 12 rebounds. Amy Kame led all scorers with 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting from the field, while dishing out four assists. Sophia Ederaine came off the bench to score 14 points, and pulled down 10 rebounds for her third double-double of the season, and Malina Hood recorded 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field. As a team, USD shot 51.6% from the field and out rebounded the Redhawks, 37-36.

In the first half, Seattle jumped on the Toreros and raced out to a 8-0 lead over the first three minutes of action. A McDaniel 3-point play, lay-up and free throw, with 17:06 to play, finally got USD on the board. San Diego then cut the lead down to five at 10-5 on a Kame jumper with 15:23 to go, however, the Redhawks quickly pushed the lead back up to nine on a Kacie Sowell lay-up, putting the visitors up 14-5, with 14:31 to go.

The Toreros then slowly began to chip away at the lead and finally tied things up at 17-all on a Kame jumper with 9:57 to go. A Hood 3-pointer then gave USD its first lead of the game at 20-17 with 9:24 to play. Seattle then hit a jumper with 8:47 to go, moving to within one at 21-20. But that is as close as they would get, as Seattle managed to only hit one more basket for the remainder of the frame, while USD went on a 20-5 run to go into the break up 42-26.

In the second half, San Diego quickly pushed the lead up to 20 on a pair of McDaniel free throws with 17:59 to go, and Seattle just could not recover. The Toreros managed to hold the Redhawks without a field goal over the first nine minutes of play. The visitors would only muster up points from the charity stripe, while USD continued to pull ahead. USD would go on to build up a 23-point lead on a few occasions, and held on to that margin in the end, winning 79-56.

The Toreros will return to action on Friday, as they head up to Long Beach, to take on the Long Beach State University 49ers in a 7 p.m. non-conference game at the Pyramid.
