The San Diego women's basketball team looks to rebound from a slow start this season when they take on city rival San Diego State on Wednesday night. Despite a series of setbacks, the Lady Toreros continue to improve with each game. A large part of the team's improvement will depend on the four freshmen joining the squad this season lead by guard Ashley Voisinet from Mater Dei High School in Irvine. Ashley leads all freshmen this season in minutes, points, and rebounds while bringing an intensity level that is uncommon for such a young player.

"She's come in and she isn't playing like a freshman", says head coach Kathy Marpe. "She brings scoring, she brings rebounding, and she's one of our better defensive players."

Ashley is no stranger to high pressure game situations. She helped lead her high school team to a conference title in the highly competitive CIF and went all the way to the state semifinals her senior year with Mater Dei.

"I think high school play prepared me a lot for college", Ashley exclaims. "The atmosphere in those big time games and the intensity that you feel is so much higher. It really helped to prepare me for the pressure and intensity that you encounter in every college game."

The pressure continues to grow for Ashley and the rest of the team as the season nears conference play and look to improve on their 1- 5 record. But as the season moves on for the Torero squad Coach Marpe and the rest of the team feel confident in the progress of the young players as they continue to improve their game and contribute more on the court.

"We have so much potential", says Ashley. "It's just a matter of bringing it all together. We just have to find that chemistry and just start gelling because I know we have it. Things just need to come together and I think that our defensive intensity needs to pick up as a team."

With a strong showing in recent home losses, Lady Toreros displayed their improved intensity. With the next challenge against San Diego State on Wednesday the team hopes to continue their level of play and snap their four- game losing streak.
