San Diego State’s women’s basketball team took advantage of some poor shooting by Eastern Michigan, which made just 28% of its shots from the floor, and coasted to a 73-59 victory in front of 145 fans at Peterson Gym.
The Aztecs (6-4), behind center Kieishsha Garnes, who had 10 rebounds and 14 points, led, 43-27 at halftime, after shooting 54% from the field in the first half. They shot 44% for the game, 61% from the free-throw line. Garnes, who played just 28 minutes because of foul trouble, was five-for-six in free throws.
UC San Diego was trounced in the championship game of its own tournament by St. Thomas of Minnesota, 64-34.
