UCD roundup: Aggie women get past Akron on Saturday

From page B8 | December 01, 2013 |

SAN LUIS OBISPO — But for a 3-pointer by San Francisco late Friday night, the UC Davis women’s basketball team would have swept its two games at the Holiday Beach Classic this weekend at Cal Poly.

But the late trey sent the Aggies to a 69-67 loss Friday before they bounced back to defeat Akron, 71-57, on Saturday behind 22 points from all-tournament team member Sydnee Fipps.

Teammates Alyson Doherty and Kelsey Harris also finished in double figures Saturday as UCD shot 45 percent from the field — including 52 percent in the second half — to improve to 2-4 on the season. Led by Molly Greubel’s career high of nine boards, the Aggies out rebounded the Zips, 43-37.

Doherty was an efficient 6-for-8 from the floor for her 14 points and added seven rebounds to her total in 21 minutes. Harris buried a trio of 3-pointers on her way to 11 points and shared team-high honors with four steals as UCD’s defense forced 23 turnovers and finished with 18 steals on the night.

Picking up where they left off on Friday night against San Francisco — when they set a record for 3-point attempts — the Aggies came out firing to start Saturday night’s contest, opening the game on a 13-4 run over the first four minutes. The UCD defense in that stretch was suffocating, forcing four turnovers en route to the early lead.

Akron closed to within five points on a couple of occasions, but the locals opened the floodgates with a 9-0 run thanks to a pair of free throws by Harris and another from Brianna Salvatore. The Aggies opened a 14-point advantage at that point and led 41-24 at the break.

On Friday, Fipps scored 17 points, while Harris and Doherty added 15 apiece, but San Francisco’s Rachel Howard’s 3-pointer snapped a 66-66 tie with a less than a minute to play.

Of UCD’s 20 made shots, 15 came from beyond the arc as the Aggies set a school single-game record with 39 attempts from long distance. The 15 made treys were two short of an Aggie benchmark.

UCD’s ultra-challenging early-season schedule continues next week when it travels to No. 1 Connecticut for a Thursday (4 p.m.) contest.

Aggie freshman Allie Wegener enjoyed a breakout performance of 14 kills and 14 digs while senior setter Jenny Woolway and junior libero Megan Lancaster combined for 35 digs, but ultimately Cal State Northridge came away with a 21-25, 25-9, 18-25, 27-25, 15-5 victory over UCD at The Pavilion on Saturday night.

The Aggies close out their season with a 14-15 overall record and 6-10 mark in Big West Conference play.

Previously used as a defensive and serving specialist, Wegener committed just three hitting errors on 29 swings for a .379 average in her first full match as a pin hitter. Woolway led UCD with 18 digs to go with 44 assists in her career finale while Lancaster scooped up 17 digs.

Senior Devon Damelio recorded 12 kills on a match-high 45 attempts, and tied her personal best of five service aces, while Lancaster and senior Lindsay Dowd each added two aces for the Aggie serving corps. UCD got a late spark from another freshman, 6-foot-3 Kendall Walbrecht, who stepped up for career highs of seven kills, 20 swings and four digs.
