USC Women’s Basketball Pins Up 87-48 Win In Exhibition Action Against Cal State LA

Oct 30, 2022

LOS ANGELES — The USC women's basketball team got an early tune-up today with an exhibition matchup against visiting Cal State Los Angeles this afternoon at Galen Center. It was a flashy first showing for the Women of Troy, who introduced their fans to five new players on the court today — three of whom hit doubles digits. Newcomers Kadi Sissoko, Kayla Williams and Okako Adika were joined by sophomore Rayah Marshall in double figures, with Sissoko and Marshall recorded a double-double each in the 87-48 USC win.

In all, nine Trojans scored as USC gave up the opening bucket but then buckled in and stayed the course to victory. Sissoko tallied a game-high 25 points while collecting 10 rebounds, while Marshall scored 21 points and hauled in a game-high 15 rebounds. Williams and Adika wrapped up just a rebound shy of doubles doubles, as they scored 13 and 12 points, respectively. Williams and Adika also combined for five 3-pointers landed, with newcomer Rokia Doumbia also splashing in a long one for the Trojans today.

USC wrapped the exhibition test shooting 46.8 percent from the floor while holding Cal State LA to 27.7 percent. USC also outrebounded the Golden Eagles 61-28 down the stretch.
