The Jackrabbits chipped away at the deficit via the three-pointer and the free throw line. SDSU made its first eight free throw attempts and 11-of-14 tries in the first half, then knotted the game at 22-all on Eide’s second three-pointer of the opening stanza.

The Hoyas responded with an 8-0 spurt to regain a 39-38 advantage after a Rodgers three-pointer. However, the Georgetown lead lasted only a few seconds as Hannah Strop’s putback gave SDSU the lead for good, sparking an 18-6 run that included two three-pointers by to Eide which SDSU its largest lead of the game at 56-45 with 6:25 remaining.

Georgetown got back to within 58-56, but Eide ended the Hoya run with a basket with three minutes to play and Strop scored the final four Jackrabbit points at the free throw line.

Eide canned a career-high seven three-pointers en route to her 27 points. Megan Waytashek added nine points and Leah Dietel chipped in with eight points and three steals.

The Jackrabbits finished the game 19-of-47 from the field, 40.4 percent, including 9-of-31 from three-point range against the Georgetown zone defense. SDSU made 17-of-24 free throw attempts, 70.8 percent.

Rodgers was the lone player in double figures for Georgetown with a game-high 31 points. Andrea White contributed nine points and a game-high 12 rebounds as the Hoyas held a 35-34 rebounding advantage.

The Hoyas shot 19-of-55 from the floor, 34.5 percent, including 5-of-17 from three-point range. At the line, Georgetown converted 15-of-21 attempts, 71.4 percent.
