Women's Basketball Gets Back On Winning Track

Dec. 19, 2002

DALLAS - Junior Rometra Craig made her season debut with 18 points and three three-pointers Thursday and the USC Women of Troy defeated the SMU Mustangs, 80-58, in non-conference action at Moody Coliseum. Junior Aisha Hollans scored 14 points and added a career-high 15 rebounds as USC snapped a two-game losing streak and recorded a season-high for points.

The Women of Troy (5-4) used a balanced attack as four players scored in double digits. Sophomore Rachel Woodward scored 18 points while junior Ebony Hoffman registered her fourth double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 boards on the evening.

Craig, who was eligible to play for the first time since transferring last year from Duke, sparked a 30-8 run early in the first half with a three-pointer. The run took shape after freshman Meghan Gnekow drilled back-to-back threes and the Women of Troy never looked back.

USC shot a season-high 54 percent from the floor (33-for-61) while going 6-for-8 (67%) from three-point range.

Shonte Roberts led the Mustangs with 14 points.

The Women of Troy travel to the University of Colorado for a final nonconference game on Sunday (Dec. 21) at 2 p.m. Mountain time. USC will then begin Pac-10 Conference play on Friday (Dec. 27) at Oregon State.
