Proctor sparks USF women to win over Seattle

Junior Taylor Proctor had 22 points in a strong all-around game as the USF women's basketball team beat host Seattle University 67-46 Sunday in a nonconference game.

Proctor added five assists, five rebounds and two blocks for the Dons, who are 7-2 for the first time since the 1996-97 season that wound up with a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Junior guard Zhane Dikes had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds to go along with tying her career best with five steals.

“I thought offensively, especially to start the game, I thought we did really well,” USF coach Jennifer Azzi said. “I think we were really focused on stopping their inside game. Overall, it was a great team win, and it's always really, really good to win on the road. I'm pleased with a win.”

USF put up its best scoring half of the season in the opening 20 minutes, grabbing a 46-35 advantage. That lead was built on the strength of a 24-4 scoring advantage in the paint. However, the Dons couldn't keep that momentum as they posted their lowest-scoring half in the final 20 minutes.

Alexis Thompson led the Redhawks (2-7) with 14 points.

USF wraps up nonconference play this week with games Wednesday against North Texas (7 p.m.) and Saturday against San Jose State (2 p.m.), both at War Memorial Gymnasium.
