Jan. 24, 2003
- This Week:
Washington women's basketball looks for its ninth-straight win at home Saturday, when it hosts the Oregon State Beavers. The 5 p.m. tip-off at Bank of America Arena will be televised live on Fox Sports Net with Tod Pickett and Mary Murphy calling the action. After a 79-60 win over Oregon Thursday, the Huskies aim for their first sweep of the Oregon Schools at home since the 1992-93 season and for the first time under head coach June Daugherty. The annual Husky Alumni Game will be played prior to UW's matchup with Oregon State, beginning at 2 p.m. Washington has won five of its last six games and 13 of its last 15. UW's 19-point win over Oregon, Thursday, was its largest in the series with the Ducks since a 72-50 win in Eugene on Feb. 11, 1978. Senior All-America candidate Loree Payne, UW's career-leader in three-point field goals made, tied a career-high with 29 points and tied a season-high with six treys to lead the Huskies to their eighth home win. After establishing a new Husky career record last weekend, Payne now has 219 career 3-pointers. With 1,497 career points, Payne now needs just three to become the ninth player in school history to reach the 1,500-point plateau. With 13 points vs. Oregon, junior All-America candidate Giuliana Mendiola now has 1,002 in her career, becoming the 18th player in Husky history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

Scouting the Huskies:
The Huskies leap-frogged over No. 22 Arizona into a tie for second place in the Pac-10 standings thanks to its win over Oregon coupled with losses by Arizona and UCLA. UW has won five of its last six games and 13 of its last 15. The Huskies' 14-3 overall record is its best in its first 17 games since its 15-2 record in 1989-90. That season, UW finished with a 28-3 overall record, tied for first in the Pac-10 and advanced to the NCAA Mideast Region Championship before falling 76-50 to Auburn. The Huskies have strung together win streaks of eight and four games this season. Two of the Huskies' three losses have come to teams ranked in the Top-25 (No. 13 Texas Tech and No. 18 Arizona). UW's strength remains its three-point shot, as the Huskies began this week the Pac-10 leader in three-pointers (7.88) and ranked eighth nationally. Junior Giuliana Mendiola is the team leader in points (15.3), rebounds (6.2) and assists (4.7) and has scored in double-figures in 16 games including the last nine straight. UW tallied an impressive 8-1 non-conference record this season. The Huskies are 1-2 record against teams in the Top-25.
Payne Leads UW Over The Ducks 79-60:
Senior All-America candidate Loree Payne made six three-pointers and scored 29 points, leading UW to a 79-60 victory over Oregon in front of 4,299 fans at Bank of America Arena, Thursday. Payne's 29 points equaled her career high, while her six three-pointers improved the senior's career total to 219. Oregon freshman Carolyn Ganes led all Ducks' scorers with 24 points, while Washington junior Giuliana Mendiola contributed across the board with 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Also scoring in double figures for Washington were senior Emily Autrey (11) and junior Andrea Lalum (11). Sophomore Kristen O'Neill pulled down a career-high 12 rebounds. The game also marked the return of senior forward Kellie Dalan. Dalan, who missed the last eight consecutive games due to a stress fracture, entered the game in the first half and played 13 minutes, totaling two points and three rebounds. UW held a 38-27 advantage on the boards and an 18-7 edge in second-chance points, while outscoring Oregon in the paint by a 32-20 margin.

The Beavers are in fifth-place in the Pac-10 standings with a 10-7 overall record and 4-4 in the conference. Oregon State escaped Pullman with a close 65-62 win over Washington State Thursday night. OSU is also coming off a win at home vs. in-state rival Oregon (67-51) on Jan. 18, its first Civil War victory since 1996.

Oregon State vs. Washington All-Time Series:
Washington leads the all-time series with Oregon State 37-22 and has won nine of the last 12 meetings under current head coach June Daugherty. These teams split a pair of games last year with UW winning 74-58 in Corvallis and OSU winning 73-71 (overtime) in Seattle. The last four Beaver vs. Husky meetings have been close, with UW winning three of the last four by seven points or less.
The Last Time...:
Washington swept the Oregon schools at home was 10 years ago under coach Chris Gobrecht during the 1992-93 season. The Huskies posted a 59-51 win over Oregon on Feb. 18, 1993, followed by an 81-71 win over Oregon State Feb. 20.
Payne Sets UW Career Three-Pointers Record:
Netting a trio of treys in last weekend's games at Cal and Stanford, senior Loree Payne surpassed her former Husky teammate Megan Franza to claim the UW career record for three-pointers made. Payne currently has 219 career three-pointers, eight more than Franza who had 211 from 1997-01. Payne also moved ahead of Franza on the Pac-10 list, to secure second only to Arizona's Lisa Griffith (285). Payne ranks third all-time in UW history and fourth in Pac-10 history with 627 three-pointers attempted.
Home Sweet Home:
With its latest win over Oregon, Thursday, the Huskies' perfect record this season at Bank of America remained intact. UW has now won eight straight at home for the first time since 1977. The only other time UW won nine-straight was between the 1981-82 seasons. The school record for a home winning streak is 30 games, set from 1986-88. UW credits much of its home success to stellar fan support, as the Huskies rank second in the Pac-10 (behind Oregon) with an average attendance of 3,809 fans. UW's season-high crowd was 5,458 vs. Arizona, the third-largest single game Pac-10 crowd of the 2002-03 season.
Dalan Comes Back From Stress Fracture Injury:
The Huskies were happy to welcome senior forward Kellie Dalan back to the floor after missing the last eight games with a stress fracture in her right foot. Dalan got the clearance following shoot around prior to UW's game with Oregon Thursday. Dalan, who had started the first eight games, logged 13 minutes vs. Oregon and had two points and three rebounds. Dalan had been averaging 6.4 points and 2.5 rebounds a game prior to the injury. Senior Emily Autrey, who averaged 11.1 points off the bench in the first eight games, took Dalan's place in the starting lineup during her absence.
Going into this week, Washington averaged 74.9 points a game, third-highest in the Pac-10 behind Arizona (78.5) and UCLA (76.4). The Huskies have also posted an average margin of victory of 16.3 points in their 14 wins, including a 20.3-point margin in their eight home wins. Washington has won 10 of 14 games by at least a 10-point margin.

Kayla Burt's UW Career Comes To A Close:
Washington announced Jan. 6 that Husky sophomore Kayla Burt will no longer play Div. I basketball due to being diagnosed with a rare heart condition called Long Q-T Syndrome. Burt's heart stopped beating on New Year's Eve and her teammates came to her rescue, performing CPR until paramedics could arrive. On Jan. 6 she had surgery to implant a defibrillator in the right side of her chest, a device which will monitor her heart rhythm and shock it back to a normal rhythm should an abnormality occur again. Burt started all 10 Husky games before falling ill. She averaged eight points and 3.7 rebounds a game. Burt turned in a stellar effort in UW's Dec. 22 win over Iowa State, either matching or setting career highs in rebounds (seven), assists (eight), three-pointers made (three) and three-pointers attempted (six).
Burt Named Honorary Captain:
Upon her return to the team, Kayla Burt was asked by her teammates to accept the role of co-captain which she accepted. Burt will join previous co-captains seniors Loree Payne and Cheryl Sorenson and junior Giuliana Mendiola. She was also announced as UW's honorary 'sixth starter' in her first game back with her teammates against Arizona State.
Burt's Story Reaches Nationwide Audience:
The story of Kayla Burt's sudden-death episode and the efforts of her teammates to revive her has not only received a great deal of attention from the Seattle media, but has reached nationwide audiences as well. So far, Burt and her teammates have been featured on Good Morning America and Inside Edition, as well as a live interview on CNN's Connie Chung Tonight that aired Friday, Jan. 10. The story has also been covered by USA Today, Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com and the L.A. Times among other national publications.
UW Leads Pac-10, Ranks Eighth Nationally In 3-Pointers:
As of Jan. 21, the Huskies ranked eighth in the nation with 7.9 three-pointers per game. Villanova is the nation's leader with 8.7 treys per game. UW has drained at least 10 three-pointers in five games and its 134 treys lead the Pac-10 this season. Senior Loree Payne, UW's all-time career leader in 3-pointers, was second among conference players with 34 heading into this week. UW had two of the top three players in the conference in three-point shooting percentage. Junior Giuliana Mendiola is second with a .423 percentage (22-52) and senior Emily Autrey is third with a .422 percentage (19-45). The Huskies tied their Pac-10 and school records with 16 three-pointers vs. St. Bonaventure Nov. 29, while adding 15 vs. North Carolina State Dec. 6. UW shares the Pac-10 record with Stanford.
More National Rankings:
As of Jan. 21, UW was also 17th in the nation with 18.6 assists per game.
All-America Candidates Leading The Way:
As was expected, All-America candidates Loree Payne and Giuliana Mendiola have led the way for the Huskies so far this season. After Payne joined the 1,000-point club last year, Mendiola did so this season in the Oregon game. Her 13 points gave her 1,002 in her career so far. The pair has shared high-scoring honors in 12 of the Huskies' 17 games with Mendiola averaging 15.3 points a contest and Payne averaging 14.5. Both were All-Pac-10 first-team selections last year. In her third season as a Husky team captain, Payne has scored in double-figures in 12 games, including career-highs of 29 vs. Washington State and Oregon. She also leads the team with 40 three-pointers and has recently set the UW career record (219). Mendiola, in her second year as team co-captain, has scored in double-figures in all but one game, while also leading the team with 6.2 rebounds. Mendiola has also dished out a team-high 80 assists. The Husky guard hit the game-winning shot in UW's 83-81 overtime win at USC Jan. 5, and has been the only Husky named Pac-10 Player of the Week this year (Dec. 2-8).
O'Neill Keeps Heatin' Up:
Sophomore Kristen O'Neill had big shoes to fill when stepping in for Kayla Burt in the starting five, but the 6-1 guard has thrived since. O'Neill has recorded career highs in either points or rebounds in three of the last four games, as well as hitting the game-winning shot to lift UW over Arizona, Jan. 11. First she recorded then-career-highs in points (17) and rebounds (nine) against Arizona. She followed up that performance with a new career-high 18 points vs. Cal. Most recently vs. Oregon, she upped her career total of rebounds to 12, tying for the highest rebound total by a Husky this season. O'Neill came off the bench in UW's first 10 games, after starting 24 as a freshman last year. She has started the last seven.
Autrey Thrust Back Into Starting Role:
After starting 26 of 31 games a a junior last year, senior Emily Autrey was relegated to coming off the bench in the first eight games of her senior campaign this season. The 6-0 forward made the most of that new role, sparking the Huskies with 11.1 points and 4.5 rebounds off the bench, including a career-high performance of points (23) and three-pointers (five) vs. North Carolina State Dec. 6. But when senior Kellie Dalan went down with the stress fracture injury, Autrey took her place in the starting five in UW's game with Iowa State and has started since. Autrey came three boards shy of a double-double with 10 points and seven rebounds, to go along with two assists in that game vs. Iowa State. She followed that up with a team-high 11 rebounds and seven points in her second start vs. Washington State. Autrey, fourth on the team with 10.6 points and second in rebounding with 5.1 boards, has scored in double-figures in eight games.
Lalum Steady As She Goes:
Junior forward Andrea Lalum is right behind Mendiola and Payne when it comes to offensive production. Averaging 10.9 points a game, Lalum has scored in double-figures in 10 games including two performances of 20 points or more. Lalum scored a season-high 23 points vs. Iowa State, two shy of matching her career-high set last year. She also recorded her ninth-career double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds vs. Houston at the N.C. State Tournament. She is currently third on the team in scoring (10.9 points) and third in rebounds (4.6).
Senior Kellie Dalan was out since Dec. 20 with a stress fracture in her right foot but made her return in UW's game vs. Oregon, Thursday...sophomore Kirsten Brockman is out for the season, recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in her left foot...freshman Angie Jones is rehabilitating her right knee after ACL surgery Nov. 22...Jones tore the same ACL during her junior season at Holy Names Academy (Seattle)...freshman Jill Bell had surgery to repair a ligament in her left thumb Nov. 7 and has been cleared to play.
Payne Continues To Climb UW Top-10 Scoring List:
Loree Payne has 1497 career points and needs three to become just the ninth-player in school history to reach the 1,500-point plateau. Payne is also just 12 points away from moving into the No. eight spot on UW's career scoring list. Carlin McClary (1979-82) is currently in eighth with 1,508 career points. Payne, just the 17th player in UW history to score at least 1,000 points, broke into the UW Top-10 career scoring list with her first bucket vs. Texas Tech, Nov. 24. Her three-pointer gave her 1,263 career points and sole possession of 10th place on the list.
Payne Named Finalist For Senior CLASS Award:
Senior Loree Payne is one of 30 finalists nominated for the second annual Senior CLASS Award. The Senior CLASS (Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School) Award is presented to the nation's senior player of the year for NCAA Div. I men's and women's basketball. The award was developed in response to the recent trend of college basketball players leaving early to turn professional. Last year, Connecticut's Sue Bird and Maryland's Juan Dixon each won the award.
Mendiola On Payne's Heels In Career 3-Pointers:
Junior Giuliana Mendiola is one year behind fellow All-America candidate senior Loree Payne, but she is on her heels on the UW career three-point scoring lists. Mendiola is eighth all-time in three-pointers made (89) and eighth in three-pointers attempted (248). In fact, Mendiola entered the season ranked ahead of Payne in career three-point field goal percentage. Mendiola is fifth (.359) and Payne is sixth (.339). Last year as a sophomore, Mendiola also turned in the third-highest single season assists (152) in UW history. Only Lisa Raschkow (1987, 161) and Katia Foucade (1995, 157) had more assists in a season than Mendiola did in 2002.
For the second-straight season, the Husky roster boasts two sets of sisters: juniors Giuliana and Gioconda Mendiola, and senior Kellie Dalan and sophomore Kristen O'Neill. The Mendiolas are one year apart in age, almost to the day, but Gioconda took a year off between high school graduation and college so that she could play four years of college ball with her sister. Kellie Dalan, formerly O'Neill, got married this summer, hence the name change. The only other pair of sisters to play together at Washington were Heidi (1993-96) and Molly Hills (1996-99), who overlapped the 1996 season.
Husky Coaching Staff:
Aiming to guide the Huskies to their sixth postseason appearance during her brief tenure, UW head coach June Daugherty enters her seventh season at the helm of the women's basketball program. She has an overall record of 114-81 at Washington and a 13-year career head coaching mark of 237-155. Sunny Smallwood is in her 10th year as a Husky women's basketball assistant, while Mike Daugherty enters his seventh season. Shimmy Gray enters her third year on staff.
Washington's roster boasts four new faces this year in redshirt freshman Nicole Castro and true freshmen Jill Bell, Angie Jones and Erica Schelly. Bitten by the preseason injury bug, Bell and Jones have yet to make their collegiate debuts. Jones, from Seattle, tore her ACL in an Oct. 22 practice and had surgery Nov. 22. At Holy Names Academy, Jones led her team to two straight Class 3A state appearances and two consecutive Metro league chamionships. She earned All-Metro first-team honors in 2001 and 2002. Bell, from Bellevue, Wash., had surgery to repair a torn ligament in her left thumb in November and has been cleared to play, but hasn't appeared in a game yet. At Bellevue High School, Bell led her team to four straight state tournament appearances and four straight league crowns. Castro, from Darwin, Australia, joined the team in January of last year after graduating from high school in the fall of 2002. Castro, who attended St. John's College High School, was selected twice to the Adidas All-Star Camp in 1999 and 2000 and was named the 2001 Southern Cross Women's League Youth Player of the Year. Schelly, from Fort Collins, Colo., is the only true freshmen to have seen any playing time. She was honored as a Nike All-American and entered her senior season at Poudre High School as a Street & Smith's Preseason All-America pick. Schelly led Poudre High to the Class 5A state tournament four straight years and was a four-time first-team all-conference honoree. She garnered honorable mention all-state honors as a sophomore and junior.
Huskies Take Off-Season Trip To Australia:
This past June, the Huskies took a tour of Australia, where they played five games against teams from the Australian Young Women's National Teams. It was the UW women's basketball team's second trip to Australia, with the first taken in 1998. UW split its first two games against the Australian Young Women's National Team in Sydney, but won the next three contests against three different opponents. In Brisbane, UW defeated the Brisbane Capitals, 104-78 and the Under-18 South State Team, 128-78. Among those fans cheering on the Huskies was the family of redshirt freshman Nicole Castro, who hails from Darwin, Australia (about one and a half hours from Brisbane). Washington wrapped its 11-day tour with a 128-69 victory over the Kuiyam Pride Women's Team, 128-69, in Cairns.
UW Ranked In Three Preseason Polls:
Washington was ranked in three Top-25 preseason polls. The Huskies checked in at No. 22 according to Basketball News, and are ranked 25th by Lindy's and Street & Smith. In the Associated Press Preseason Poll, UW ranked 27th with 94 votes, and in the USA Today/ESPN Poll the Huskies are 32nd with 74 votes.
