Mintun is mighty in Aggies women\’s victory

By November 3, 2010

\n

Two-time All-Big West first team member Paige Mintun picked up right where she left off for UC Davis on Wednesday, leading the Aggie women\’s basketball team to a 91-33 win over San Francisco State in an exhibition game at The Pavilion.

\n

Mintun nailed a trio of 3-pointers and scored 17 first-half points to help UCD to a 33-point lead at intermission. The senior finished with 21 points to lead five Aggies in double figures.

\n

Vicky Deely added 13 points, while Kasey Riecks — who had four 3-pointers — and Heidi Heintz each had 12. Brianna Salvatore added 10 points for UCD, which was 15-for-33 from beyond the 3-point line and shot 50 percent from the field overall.

\n

Molly Morton and Candyce Matthews each scored six points for the Gators, a Division II squad that competes in the California Collegiate Athletic Association.

\n

The Aggies, who are the media\’s pick to win this year\’s Big West championship, never trailed in the game, scoring the first nine points and then using a 14-0 run over a four-minute span midway through the half to turn a 19-6 lead into a 27-point advantage with 6:47 to go before intermission.

\n

Mintun hit all three of her treys in the game\’s first 10 minutes, eventually making 6-of-8 from the floor overall on her way to a big first half of scoring. UCD led 45-12 at halftime, scoring 30 points off 17 turnovers from San Francisco State.

\n

The second half brought more of the same for the Aggies, who enjoyed their biggest lead at 87-23 with 4:53 remaining. UCD had 24 assists on 31 baskets, including four from Hannah Stephens. Lauren Juric had three steals.

\n

The exhibition game is the only one this season for the Aggies, who will travel to face the University of San Francisco on Nov. 12 in their opener.
