November 17, 2016 (San Diego) - San Diego State women’s basketball was unable to get past a University of San Diego team that shot 65 percent (37-for-57) and fell to its crosstown rival, 91-53, in a non-conference game Thursday night.
With the loss, SDSU falls to 1-2 on the season, while USD improves to 3-0. It was the Aztecs’ worst margin of defeat since an 89-38 defeat by No. 2/3 South Carolina on Nov. 23, 2014.
In the first half, San Diego State had to contend with a Torero team that shot an outstanding 70 percent (19-for-27) compared to SDSU’s 29 percent (9-for-31).
After McKynzie Fort and Kymberly Ellison made a trio of free throws to start the game, Fort got the Aztecs’ first two field goals. Her short jumper put the game within one point at 6-5 2:44 into the game. Three-and-a-half minutes later, she drove the basket, hooked right and threw in the 16-7 shot.
