    Default SAN DIEGO TOREROS LOOK FOR BULLFIGHT BRINGING A TOP RATED DEFENSE TO THE ARENA

    STEAL CITY IN THE RANKINGS

    San Diego's defense continues to be a powerhouse in NCAA Division I.

    San Diego is currently third in turnovers forced, second in steals per game and sixth in turnover margin. The Toreros have rarely dipped below the top 10 in any of these categories throughout the 2020-21 campaign.

    Edwards is also among the country's elite defenders, ranking 10th in steals per game and 17th in total steals on the season.

    San Diego might be the most under rated team in the WCC. They have competed well the last 2 years. Last year they played in the WCC Championship game and lost by a point in OT.

    San Diego might be the only team in the WCC that has as deep of a bench as the Zags.

    Lets look at the San Diego players:

    #10 Pace (5'11") averaging 12 points, 4.5 rebounds. Trending up last 3 games has scored 15, 20, and 22 points.

    #23 Edwards (5'8") averaging 10.8 points. Has 62 assists and 50 steals. 18-49 on 3 point attempts.

    #32 Hunter (6'0') averaging 8.7 points, 6 rebounds.

    #30 Bird (6'2") Averaging 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds.

    #4 Gorman (6'0") Averaging 7.4 points. 21-55 on 3 point attempts.

    #20 Martinsen (5'9") Averaging 6.5 points. 27-67 on 3 point attempts.

    #11 Erikstrud (6'2") Averaging 5.9 points.

    #5 Khalfani (5'11") Averaging 5.1 points

    #0 Oakry (5'10") Averaging 4.7 points.

    #33 Olinger (6'3")

    So their is 3 shooters that Zags need to guard closely at the 3 point line #20, #23, and #4.

    San Diego is the other team that beat BYU in the WCC this year.

    San Diego is the "BULLY" team...... they continually body up opposition and most frequently use their HANDS TO PUSH opponents out of their way. Their less skilled players do it continually, especially in 'dead ball' plays on in from out of bounds plays. Down the stretch in the last UOP game, Randhawa was leveled on a Pacific in-bounds play, but the ref caught it! She sank both FT's (8-10 and 19 points tying Higgins for team honors). This was the last 2 minutes of the game and it got a lot uglier ... They press and use their hands and body to jolt whomever has the ball; theory, the ref's will only call so many fouls in a game. They were ONLY WHISTLED FOR 21 vs Tigers. Twice as many were over-looked; Higgins was hammered on most of her moves under the basket and on steals for lay-ins... She did get to shoot FT's (7-8) but probably conservatively should have shot about 17! Pace and Edwards are skilled players... but even Edwards will push the limit on the press! #32 Sydney Hunter...... got 6 fouls in the Pacific game. With the score only two buckets apart and about 1 minute 30 seconds left ... Pacific held the ball, trying to break Higgins free..... suddenly the back Official blew his whistle and play stopped. After conferring with the two other ref's.... Higgins hit her final 2 FT's ....... courtesy of Hunter's mouth from the bench...way down the court! I am quite sure she did not say it was a FINE day....... This team and Pepperdine's are the worst in the WCC for sportsmanship. I do hope you bury them!

    P.S. Higgins and Rosie (F) for Pacific are about the same size as JT. Both were on the floor at least 3 to 4 times a piece, Rosie while missing a 'lay-up' and then pulverized from the side... No calls. I would worry about JT getting ambushed in this one! Beware of the "BULLS"

    Final was: UOP 66 San Diego 61 ..... but a fan could not enjoy such hand to hand combat!

    Thanks for the info Kemo. Might be time for CLF to break out our secret weapon against San Diego Eliza Hollingsworth. Eliza really makes the most of her minutes. She is a big girl from Australia, and plays like a true big. Uses her height and long arms, and can jump, each time I see her I'm more impressed. Now all she needs is some more minutes on the court. San Diego would have a tough time pushing around Eliza.

    This week will test the Zags mental and physical toughness. Two tough games this week for the Lady Zags.

    Snap shot San Diego's game they won tonight here's they players who stepped up.

    #4 Gorman (6'0) was 4-9 on 3 pointers scored 19 points.

    #32 Hunter (6'0") was 6-9 FG, 15 points, 11 rebounds.

    #30 Bird(6'2") was 6-9 FG, scored 12 points.

    #10 Pace(5'11") scored 9 points, 8 rebounds.

    #33 Olinger (6'3") 5 rebounds, played 13 minutes.

    #20 Martinsen was 1-1 on 3 pointers.

    This team has just as much depth as the Zags you won't tire them out. In addition San Diego has the best defense we will face in the WCC.
