Dec. 6, 2008
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Sybil Dosty had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Arizona State held Cal-Irvine to a record low in scoring for a 75-23 victory Saturday in the first round of the ASU Classic.
The Sun Devils (5-2) advanced to the championship Sunday against the winner of Saturday's late game between Northern Arizona and Hawaii.
The 23 points are the fewest Arizona State has ever allowed, breaking the previous low of 30 by Grand Canyon on Dec. 4, 1992 and matched by Washington State on Feb. 21 of last season. It is also the fewest points scored against a Pac-10 team, breaking the mark of 24 Cal-Irvine had against Oregon State on Dec. 9, 1989.
Rebecca Maessen led the Anteaters (3-3) with 10 points. Mary Has, Cal-Irvine's leading scorer, was held scoreless on 0-of-9 shooting from the field before she fouled out with 6:26 left. She came into the game averaging 17.2 points.
Dymond Simon added 10 points and five assists for Arizona State, and Lauren Lacey had 10 points and nine rebounds.
