WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE: The University of San Diego women's basketball team (1-0) will hit the road this week for a 2 p.m. Saturday showdown with the Cal Poly Mustangs (1-1) of the Big West Conference.  This will be USD's lone contest of the week.  

LAST TIME OUT: The University of San Diego women's basketball team (1-0) tipped off the 2012-13 season with a convincing 69-44 home win over Cal State San Marcos (2-2) Saturday afternoon.  Junior guard Amy Kame paced the Toreros with an all-around effort, finishing with 20 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, and five steals. Junior forward Felicia Wijenberg scored eight of her 12 points in the second half to help the Toreros cruise to the 69-44 victory.  Newcomers Alysse Barlow and Maya Hood both made an impact in their first appearances as a Torero. Barlow, a point guard transfer from Hutchinson Community College, recorded eight assists and four steals to go along with her seven points in her first career start as a Torero. Hood, a true freshman from La Jolla, scored ten points (5-11) and hauled in eight rebounds in her first collegiate game.  Kame posted career highs in rebounds (11), steals (5), and blocks (3), but she wasn't the only Torero setting personal marks. Senior guard Julia Bennett chipped in a career high nine points and sophomore forward Katelyn McDaniel collected a career best nine rebounds.

A LOOK AHEAD: San Diego will return home next week as they host a pair of contests.  On Friday Nov. 23, they will battle Northern Colorado at 7 p.m., and on Sunday they will host San Jose State in a 2 p.m. game.

USD Runs Past Cal Poly
Behind a 22-point effort from senior guard Morgan Woodrow, and a 20-point outing from senior guard Dominique Conners, the University of San Diego women's basketball team cruised its way to a 69-52 win over visiting Cal Poly Saturday afternoon in a non-conference game at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.

SCOUTING THE MUSTANGS: Cal Poly enters the game with an overall record of 1-1 after defeating Oregon State 72-62 this past Monday.  The Toreros lead the all-time series at 9-7, including winning the last two meetings.    The Mustangs are paced by junior center Molly Schlemer, who is averaging a double-double with 15.5 ppg and 10.0 rpg.  The only other Mustang to average double figures is Ariana Elegado, who is scoring a team-best 17.5 ppg.  Cal Poly is under the direction of 15th-year head coach Faith Mimnaugh.  

LAST TIME VS. THE MUSTANGS: Behind a 22-point effort from senior guard Morgan Woodrow, and a 20-point outing from senior guard Dominique Conners, the University of San Diego women's basketball team cruised its way to a 69-52 win over visiting Cal Poly on Dec. 17, 2012 in a non-conference game at the Jenny Craig Pavilion.  Woodrow scored her game-high 22 points on 8-for-19 shooting, while managing to pull down seven rebounds, while Conners scored her 20 points on 8-for-12 shooting. And with her 20 points, Conners has now moved into third all-time on the USD career-scoring charts, passing former Torero great Sam Child. The final Torero in double figures was senior guard Izzy Chilcott, who scored 10 points on 5-for-8 shooting from the field. Freshman forward, Sophia Ederaine recorded four blocks, and as a team, USD recorded 10. The Toreros shot .448 from the field, and were even in rebounds at 42 apiece.

USD ON TV: The Toreros will have one televised game this season, as they will be on Fox Sports San Diego on Dec. 8, when they host cross-town rival San Diego State University in a 3:30 p.m. game inside of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.

DOIN THE DISHES: One thing is clear in the early part of the season, USD junior transfer point guard Alysse Barlow is a distributor.  In the season-opener against Cal State San Marcos, the Arlington, Tex native recorded eight assists, while also scoring seven points.  This is the first Torero to recorded eight or more assists in a game since Amanda Rego, USD's all-time leader in assists) did is on numerous occasions.  Rego single handily re-wrote the Torero assist record, time will only tell if Barlow can throw her name into record books as well, and this is a great start.  

DOUBLE THE PLEASURE, DOUBLE THE FUN: Junior guard Amy Kame recorded a double-double in the season opener against Cal State San Marcos, as the Grand Junction, Colo. native recorded 20 points and she pulled down a career-high 11 rebounds.  But her great play didn't stop there, as she also dished out a career-high five assists, and she recorded five steals.  Safe enough to say, Kame is on top of her game early on in the season.  

WELCOME TO THE TEAM: USD fans got an opportunity to see a few of the newcomers on the Torero roster in the season-opening win over Cal State San Marcos.  One of these was Maya Hood, and she was simply stunning in her debut.  The San Diego native recorded 10 points, and just missed getting her first collegiate double-double, as he recorded eight rebounds.  And she did all of this in just 22 minutes off the bench.  

WIJENBERG HAS GOOD START TO SEASON: Junior forward Felicia Wijenberg had a great start to the 2012-13 season, as she recorded 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting form the field, and she recorded six rebounds.  Wijenberg was just one point shy of tying her career high of 13 points, that she set against Saint Mary's College back on Feb. 23, 2012.

TOREROS TABBED TO FINISH FOURTH IN PRESEASON POLL: The University of San Diego women's basketball team was tabbed to finish fourth in the West Coast Conference preseason coaches poll. Brigham Young University has been selected to win the WCC women's basketball championship in a preseason poll of the WCC's nine head coaches. The Cougars received five out of a possible eight first-place votes (coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team), just one more first-place vote than second-place Gonzaga. This is the first time in five years that a team other than Gonzaga has selected by the coaches to win the WCC (San Diego, 2007-08).

KAME NAMED PRESEASON ALL-WCC: The Toreros welcome back one All-WCC performer from a year ago in the form of Amy Kame. Kame, a 6-0 junior guard from Grand Junction, Colo., made a splash in her second season with the team, as she took home All-WCC honorable mention accolades for the first time last season. Kame was USD's third leading scorer on the season, as she scored an average of 11.4 ppg. In WCC games, Kame averaged 11.0 ppg, while shooting .424 from the field in conference games. Kame managed to score in double figures in 15 of the 22 games she played in. Kame scored a career-high of 24 points against Portland on Mar. 2, 2012.

MEET THE COACH: Head coach Cindy Fisher is entering her eighth season at the helm of the Toreros program. She was named the program's third head coach on April 19, 2005. The 2012-13 season was a historical one for the Toreros, as it is now the greatest season in program history. Under Fisher's tutelage, the Toreros soared to new heights, and were in uncharted waters. USD posted a program best 26-9 overall record, posted a 12-4 mark in WCC play (the most wins in WCC play in program history) and they recorded the program's first ever post season win. Not only was the first ever post season win, but the Toreros advanced all the way to the Final Four of the WNIT, before falling to eventual WNIT champions Oklahoma State.  In 2008, Fisher led USD to the WCC Tournament championship and back into the NCAA Tournament for the first time in eight seasons. In only her second season at the helm of the program, Fisher orchestrated the biggest turn around in school history, a 12-game improvement from 9-19 in the 2005-06 season to a 21-9 record in 2006-07 season. The turn around was the fourth best in the nation. Under her tutelage, the Toreros placed three players on the All-WCC lists highlighted by Amanda Rego being named the WCC Co-Player of the Year. For her efforts, Fisher was named the 2007 WCC Co-Coach of the Year.
