(San Francisco) - USF women's basketball dispatched Sonoma State in convincing fashion with a 70-38 exhibition victory Saturday night at War Memorial Gym. The Dons limited the Seawolves to just 12 first half points and shot a .507 (34-67) clip for the game in the nightcap of a doubleheader with the USF volleyball team.
Junior guard Dominique Carter led all scores with 20 points and eight rebounds in 26 minutes, while senior forward Nickie Warren scored 16 points to go along with seven boards and a blocked shot. Nine Dons recorded at least two points in the contest and everyone dressed played in the contest for first-year head coach Tanya Haave.
No Sonoma State player reached double-digit scoring and as a team the Seawolves connected at a .255 (14-55) clip and managed just four field goals in 24 attempts in the first half. Former USF player Danae Wellander led SSU with eight points and four rebounds.
San Francisco now turns its focus to the regular season opener at Colorado Friday, November 10. It will be a homecoming for Haave who spent four seasons as a Buffs assistant.
