Aggies top Matadors, 78-56

By
January 2, 2011 |

\n

Vicky Deely tied her career high with 22 points and five three-pointers on Sunday afternoon, and UC Davis had an 18-5 run to break open a close game at halftime, as the UC Davis womens basketball team evened its Big West Conference record with a 78-56 win over visiting Cal State Northridge at The Pavilion.

\n

UC Davis, which lost 58-56 to Cal State Fullerton on Friday, rebounded to improve to 11-3 overall and 1-1 in the Big West. Center Jasmine Erving scored 23 points for the Matadors, who fell to 1-13 overall and 1-1 in the league.

\n

Deely led five Aggies in double figures. Paige Mintun contributed a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Heidi Heintz and Blair Shinoda also scored 11 points while Samantha Meggison finished with 10. The Aggies also made 10 three-pointers after making just one on Friday.

\n

UC Davis led by as many as 10 points in the first half before going into intermission with a 38-30 advantage. Haley White had a three-pointer for Northridge early in the second half to make it a five-point game, but the Aggies answered by scoring 18 of the next 20 points for a 56-35 lead with 13:55 left.

\n

Heintz had seven points, including a three-pointer, during that run while Lauren Juric scored five points and Shinoda had four. Northridge didnt get closer than 17 points the rest of the way while the Aggies led by as many as 26.

\n

\”I thought that Hannah Stephens and Blair Shinoda came in and changed the tone for us defensively in the second half,\” said Aggie coach Sandy Simpson. \”I thought they really got us going and everyone else jumped on board.\”

\n

UC Davis, playing without junior Kasey Riecks, who missed her second straight game with injury, trailed briefly in the first half before breaking a 7-all tie on Blair Shinodas jumper that gave the Aggies the lead for good less than five minutes in.

\n

Deely scored four straight points after Meggison had a three-pointer as UCD rattled off eight straight points to take an 18-9 lead with 12:12 to go in the half. The Matadors responded, though, with eight straight of their own, capping their run on a jumper in the key from Erving to climb to within 18-17 less than three minutes later.

\n

Deely followed her third trey of the half with a layup shortly after, pushing the Aggies lead to 38-28 before they settled for a 38-30 advantage at the break. UC Davis success in the first half can be largely attributed to taking care of the ball. It had just two turnovers in the first 20 minutes, none of them after the first 90 seconds of the game.

\n

\”We really dedicated ourselves to coming out with a lot of intensity,\” said Simpson. \”But I will say that Cal State Northridge matched that. This is a much-improved Northridge team. Coach (Jason) Flowers has them moving in the right direction. I thought we had to play very well to get the win.\”

\n

Deely had 13 points in the first half while Meggison had 10 for UCD, which made six three-pointers before halftime.

\n

UCD had just six turnovers in the game while picking up 14 steals.

\n

The Aggies entered the game ranked No. 8 in the most recent CollegeInsiders.com Mid-Major Top 25 poll.

\n

UCD travels to face UC Santa Barbara on Thursday and Cal Poly on Saturday.
