Undefeated UCD women to take on No. 15 UCLA

By
November 20, 2010 |

\n

LOS ANGELES — In what could be a watershed basketball game for the UC Davis women\’s program, the Aggies play at UCLA today in a battle of two 3-0 schools.

\n

The matchup at Pauley Pavilion will tip-off at 2 p.m.

\n

The No. 15 Bruins are coming off an 86-83 double-overtime win at Notre Dame on Thursday, while UCD handled Pepperdine, 70-62, in nonconference action in Malibu on Friday.

\n

The Aggies went on a 13-3 run over a five-minute span late in the game after the Waves had closed to within a point at Firestone Fieldhouse. The loss dropped Pepperdine to 2-2.

\n

Junior Kasey Riecks hit four 3-pointers and scored 17 points to lead UCD, while sophomore Vicky Deely had a couple of treys off the bench and added 12 points.

\n

Guard Lauren Bell scored 18 points and Robie Mayberry tallied 15 for the Waves.

\n

The Aggies remained perfect through the early portion of their schedule, picking up their second road win heading into today\’s matchup against the Pac-10\’s Bruins. It will be UCD\’s second game of the year against a school from that conference, as the Aggies handled Washington State, 77-38, last Sunday.

\n

UCD, which didn\’t score for more than four minutes to start Friday\’s game, also survived a season-high 30 turnovers by shooting 51.9 percent from the field and making seven 3-pointers.

\n

Recovery from the four-minute drought was something that was especially pleasing to Aggie head coach Sandy Simpson, who earlier in the week said — while he was impressed with his team\’s two blowouts wins over the University of San Francisco and WSU — he wondered how it would react to “a bad stretch.”

\n

He got his answer in Malibu.

\n

After shaking the cobwebs, UCD took the lead for good, 13-12, on a lay-up from Paige Mintun just over nine minutes left in the first half, and extended it to 22-14 two minutes later. After leading by nine at intermission, the locals watched Pepperdine go on a 7-2 run near the midway point of the second half to cut it to 47-46. The Waves again crawled to within one at 51-50 when Jazmine Jackson hit a jumper with just under eight minutes to go.

\n

But eight straight points — an inside jumper from Lauren Juric, a fastbreak lay-up from Hannah Stephens, a jump shot from Deely and a bucket from Mintun — helped the Aggies get some breathing room at 59-50 with 4:26 left.

\n

UCD led by as many as 12 points down the stretch and didn\’t let the Waves — who already own wins this season over Big West members UC Santa Barbara and Cal State Northridge — closer than six points.

\n

Normally a slow starter, Riecks scored 11 of her points in the first half, canning a trio of 3-pointers. Juric came off the bench to score six points before the break and dish out four assists. Riecks also had three steals in the first 20 minutes, finishing the game with four.

\n

The Aggies countered their turnovers with 23 assists on 27 baskets including four by Heidi Heintz. Nine of the 10 Aggies who played picked up at least one assist and one steal. UCD finished with 12 takeaways.

\n

Pepperdine shot just 30 percent from the field, but held a 47-41 advantage on the boards, led by Jackson\’s 13. For the third straight game, Deely posted eight rebounds, while Heintz added seven.

\n

The Aggies were 21-11 a year ago, while Pepperdine is coming off of a 20-12 season in the rugged West Coast Conference.

\n

UCD\’s first game against UCLA in nearly four years can be heard today on KDVS (90.3 FM).
