LOS ANGELES - Senior All-America libero Debora Seilhamer (Ponce, Puerto Rico) had 23 digs Saturday and became just the third Pac-10 Conference player to record 2,000 career digs as the No. 6 USC Women of Troy swept the Oregon State Beavers, 3-0 (30-25, 30-15, 30-14), in Pac-10 Conference play at Galen Center. Seilhamer needed 14 digs entering today's match in order to reach the milestone, behind UCLA's Chrissie Zartman and Washington's Candace Lee.
