FULLERTON, Calif. - Christina Zdenek and Jessica Freeman each scored 10 points to lead Utah State Thursday night, but the Aggies shot just 32.3 percent for the game, allowing Cal State Fullerton to capture the 64-55 win in women's basketball action.
Thursday's loss stopped a three-game winning streak by the Aggies as they fell to 8-7 overall and 3-3 in the Big West. The Titans, on the other hand, stopped a nine-game skid, improved to 2-12 overall and notched their first conference win of the season (1-5).
The Aggies held their second and final lead early in the game at 6-5 as Cal State Fullerton used the next five minutes to go on a 7-0 run and eventually went into the locker room down 27-24.
The Aggies were able to pull within one three times in the game, but with Fullerton up 45-44 with 9:08 on the clock, they were unable to connect from the floor as Fullerton outscored the Aggies 11-2 over the next seven minutes to cruise to the nine-point win.
Freeman was also Utah State's leading rebounder as she finished with eight boards. Taylor Richards finished with five assists to lead the Aggies in that category, but Utah State top three scorers - Brittany Tressler, Ali Aird and Richards - combined for just 12 points on the night.
Fullerton's Andrea Adams led four Titans in double-figures with a game-high 16 points. Charlee Underwood had 13, Amber Pruitt tallied 11 and Melanie Mosley chipped-in 10 to go along with a game-high 18 rebounds.
Utah State shot just 32.3 percent from the field, including 18.2 percent from beyond the arc. Fullerton, which came into Thursday's game shooting just over 35 percent from the floor, finished at 45 percent for the night. The Titans also outrebounded the Aggies 42-39 and dished-out 19 assists to USU's 13.
Utah State now looks to regroup as it travels to UC Riverside on Saturday. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. (MST)
