No. 16 Arizona State Dominates Mississippi State, 70-48
Nov. 26, 2005
CANCUN, Mexico (AP) - Jill Noel was 4-for-5 from 3-point range and scored 15 points to lead No. 16 Arizona State to an easy 70-48 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday in the Caribbean Classic.
Long-range shooting was the difference, as Arizona State went 10 of 15 from behind the arc while Mississippi State attempted just five three pointers, making two.
Bigger and faster, Arizona State (4-1) showed no signs of a letdown after a Friday loss to No. 7 North Carolina, 79-72 in Mexico. Playing stiff man-to-man defense, the Sun Devils forced 24 turnovers, but also committed 15.
Mamie McKinney had eight points for Mississippi State (1-3), and Heather Hollis came off the bench to also score eight. But the Sun Devils, who opened an 18-point lead in the first half, were never really challenged.
