TEMPE, Ariz. - The University of San Diego women's basketball team suffered a 72-39 loss to Arizona State University Wednesday morning in a non-conference game at Wells Fargo Arena.
Junior guard Alysse Barlow paced the Torero scoring effort with 11 points on 4-of-13 sooting from the field, while also recording one block. Amy Kame had seven points, while both Maya Hood and Klara Wischer added in with six points a piece, and Wischer led the team with nine rebounds. As a team, USD shot .311 from the field, and were out rebounded 34-30.
For the Sun Devils, Joy Burke paced the offense with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting from the field. Three other players were in double figures with both Jane Fulcher and Arnecia Hawkins scoring 11 points and Micaela Pickens adding in 10 points. As a team, the Sun Devils shot .561 from the field.
In the first half the Sun Devils managed to get out of the gates quickly and went on a 8-0 run over the first three minutes of action. USD finally got on the scoreboard at the 15:07 mark with a Wischer jumper. ASU then went on a 8-4 run over the next few minutes to take a 10-point edge at 16-6 with 12:46 to go.
The Toreros then managed to hang around with Arizona State for a bit over the next four minutes, but the home team then went on a 16-1 run near the end of the frame to grab an 18-point edge at 36-17 with 4:18 to go. USD eventually went into the break down 20 at 41-21.
In the second half, it was more of the same, as the Toreros had trouble handing with the red hot shooting of the Sun Devils, and ASU managed to maintain a 20-point plus margin for a majority of the frame, before settling for a 33-point victory.
The Toreros will return to action on Saturday when they return to the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion to host Long Beach State in a 2 p.m. non-conference game.
