Jan. 13, 2007

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Emily Westerberg scored 14 of her 19 points in the second half to lead No. 11 Arizona State to an 80-70 come-from-behind victory over Oregon on Saturday night.

Aubree Johnson and Briann January added 16 points apiece for the Sun Devils (16-2, 6-1 Pac-10), who held a 40-21 rebounding advantage.

Freshman reserve Taylor Lilley scored 20 points for the Ducks (10-6, 2-4).

Arizona State was 34-of-45 from the foul line and 22-of-45 from the field. Kirsten Thompson added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Sun Devils, who overcame 22 turnovers.

Westerberg, an all-Pac-10 senior forward, was held to five points on just three field-goal attempts in the first half, and Arizona State held a 34-33 lead at the break.

Cicely Oaks capped an 8-0 run with a layup to give Oregon a 45-43 lead with 13:47 left. Lilley scored on a fast break to give the Ducks a 49-47 lead 3 minutes later.

After Kate Engelbrecht made a 3-pointer to give ASU the lead, Westerberg scored on consecutive possessions, including a 3-pointer, to give the Sun Devils a 55-49 edge.

Oaks cut the deficit to 63-61 with 4:16 to go, but Westerberg converted a three-point play to spark an 8-1 run for ASU.
