Lady Devils Clobber Cougars

The Arizona State Lady Sun Devils defeated the Washington State Cougars this afternoon, 66-41, due to the tremendous effort displayed by Jill Noe.

Noe was at the top of her game this afternoon reaching a season-high 20 points, 13 in the first half, and a team-high eight rebounds. She also hit all attempted shots including seven field goals, four three-pointers, and two free throws. Similarly, Adriane Ferguson led the Cougars with 10 points, while Ebonee Coates grabbed a game-high nine rebounds.

Though the teams started off close on the boards, ASU took the reins and led, 25-9, with five minutes remaining in the first half. Scoring 52% field goal accuracy in the first twenty minutes, ASU lead at the half, 35-15. However, they dropped to 46% accuracy in the second, but held on hitting 100% of their free throws.

The Cougars, who had some difficulty on offense due to ASU's improvements on defense, kept to 23% field goal accuracy throughout the game. Unable to compete with the Devils in the first half, the Cougars kept their heads in the game, but were not able to find any momentum needed to catch their opponent. The Devils knocked in seven points before the Cougars scored their first in the second half.

The Devils, who led by 32 points late in the second half, also had help from Emily Westerberg and Danielle Orsillo in winning tonight's game. Both had eight points apiece.
