WBK: UTEP Tops SDSU, Advances To WNIT Finals

WBK: UTEP Tops SDSU, Advances To WNIT Finals

The SDSU women's basketball team saw its impressive run in the WNIT come to an end Wednesday night, losing to UTEP in the semifinals, 66-63.

The Jacks started the game strong, hitting their first six shots, and led by as many as nine points in the opening half.  Aided by five three-point baskets, SDSU led 30-26 at halftime.

UTEP, with a school-record 12,222 fans in attendance for a women's game, opened the second half on an 8-0 run to grab a 34-30 advantage.  Moments later, SDSU cut the Miners' lead to two, and over the next 15 minutes of play, neither team would lead by more than two points.  But, in the closing minutes, UTEP made its free throws and SDSU's three-point baskets - ten total on the game - were too little, too late, as the Miners move on to Saturday's WNIT championship game.  They'll meet Rutgers in the finals.

Kayla Thornton scored 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead UTEP.  Kristine Vitola added 18 for the Miners, who improved to 29-7 on the season.

Megan Waytashek scored 14 points to lead a balanced SDSU attack.  Seven Jacks scored at least six points, including Mariah Clarin, who added ten rebounds.  SDSU ends its season with a record of 26-10.
