SDSU was led in scoring by Brooklyn Meyer with 21, and had three players score in double figures, and a total of 5 score 9 or more points.

For USD, three Yotes finished in double figures with Nicole Avila-Ambrosi pacing things with 16 points.

The key stat from Monday's game wasn't turnovers or rebounding. It was shooting percentage. The Jacks were 50% from the floor and 35% from 3, while the Yotes were 40% and 27% respectively.

It was another strong performance for both teams, with the Yotes finishing up their Summit League Tournament journey in the Semis.
