SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Behind the sharp shooting of both Malina Hood and Amy Kame, the University of San Diego women's basketball team completed the non-conference schedule with a 79-55 win over UC Irvine Friday evening at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.

With the win, the Toreros remain undefeated at 11-0, continue the best start in program history, and extend the longest winning streak in program history to 11. USD also will enter WCC play on Dec. 28, with 11 wins for only the second time in program history. With the loss, the Anteaters fall to 6-6 overall.

"I think we had a pretty tough week, physically, emotional, and mentally with finals," stated head coach Cindy Fisher. "I was just really proud of how they came out and fought. This was a group that knew we had a lot to get through, and I thought it was just a great team effort tonight."

Hood had a career-night, scoring a career-high, and game-best, 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting from the field, including hitting a career-high six three-pointers, while also pulling down seven rebounds. Hood's six 3-pointes, ties her for third in single-game 3-pointers made at USD. Kame on the other hand, tied a season-high with 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field, while dishing out two assists and pulling down a pair of rebounds. Felicia Wijenberg had 11 boards to lead the team, while Sophia Ederaine pulled down nine rebounds, and Alysse Barlow dished out a season-high seven assists. USD out rebounded the visitors 51-22, and shot 52.5% from the field.

In the first half, San Diego got the early momentum, as a Hood 3-pointer sparked a 13-5 USD run over a five minute period, to give USD a 17-8 lead with 12:46 to go. The Anteaters then fought their way back, and went on a 8-0 run to pull to within one at 17-16 with 10:05 to go. However, USD turned to Hood, and she delivered a 3-pointer with 9:14 to go, jump starting the Torero offense once again on a 9-0 run, to take their first double-digit lead of the game at 26-16 with 6:15 to go. USD would then manage to hold onto the lead, and went into the break up nine, at 35-26.

In the second half, USD would open on a 10-4 run over the first two minutes of action, to take a 15-point lead at 45-30 with 18:12 go to. USD would then maintain that margin over the next several minutes, before slowly beginning to pull further and further ahead. The Toreros would go on to build up a lead to as many as 27, on a Brooke Jelniker lay-up, with 3:56 to go. USD never looked back, as they cruised their way to a 79-55 win.

San Diego will return to action on Dec. 28, with a 2 p.m. West Coast Conference game against Pepperdine University inside the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
