The Cougars will face off against the Toreros in the semi-final game tomorrow in the Orleans arena.
USD beat Portland Friday advancing them to the semi-finals where they’ll play the Cougars. Sophomore Amy Kame was on her A-game, putting up 24 points and snagging seven rebounds. When asked about playing against BYU the team didn’t hesitate to share what they thought needs to get done.
“I think it’s important for us to have a lot of ball pressure,” Kame said, “Also they’re big inside we need to be able to be physical with them inside. They have a great team but just fundamental defense, this was a good test for us today, to go into tomorrow’s game.”
Senior Dominique Conners was on fire, leading USD with 25 points. USD finished with a 12-4 conference record, and Conners led with an average of 23.5 ppg, while hitting 80 percent of her free throws.
Cindy Fisher is the head coach for the Toreros and she’s looking forward to the game.
“It’s just extra effort,” Fisher said. “You know it’s making that extra screen, making that extra pass, good ball movement, getting inside their zone and doing some things we haven’t done. We’ve gotten a lot better in these past two weeks.”
BYU beat USD in both regular season games, meaning that the odds are in BYU’s favor. If the Cougars win they will advance to the championship game Monday afternoon. The women will most likely play against Gonzaga for the championship.
