I can handle losing to a nationally ranked, emergng power like Arizona State. Now our girls need to beat UC-Riverside. The gals really need to show more toughness on the road. UC-R would be a great start today!

Jill Noe had 16 points, five assists and five rebounds to lead No. 14 Arizona State past Gonzaga 78-60 Friday night in the first round of the ASU Classic.

Noe hit three 3-pointers, including one during a 13-0 run in the first half that gave Arizona State a 15-point lead. The Sun Devils (4-2) used a 10-0 spurt, started and ended by Noe, to build a 61-42 lead with 12:45 left.

Heather Bowman scored 20 points, all in the second half, and grabbed 11 rebounds for Gonzaga (4-2). The Bulldogs missed 19 of their first 27 shots in falling behind early.

Tennessee transfer Sybil Dosty had a career-high 16 points and added nine rebounds for the Sun Devils, who committed nine turnovers in the first 12 minutes but hit five straight 3-pointers to stretch its lead.

Freshman guard Courtney Vandersloot dished out a game-high six assists, forced four Sun Devil turnovers, scored seven points and grabbed three rebounds for the visiting Zags. Junior Jami Bjorklund also had seven points for Gonzaga.

Gonzaga will play in Sunday's consolation game against either No. 18 Auburn or UC-Riverside at 11 a.m. PT.
