Tuesday, February 21, 2006 - GSAC Game #18
#17 Azusa Pacific 68, FPU 50

Box score

Azusa - A 17-0 run midway through the second half powered the No. 17 Azusa Pacific University Cougars to a 68-50 Golden State Athletic Conference win over the Sunbirds in Azusa tonight.

FPU, guilty of 17 first-half turnover, trailed by only four points after 20 minutes of play. They closed the gap to a single point with 14:05 to play, inciting the Cougars to the 17-0 run.

"It is frustrating," said FPU head coach Jim Hall. "This was a winnable game for us. But we didn't take care of the basketball and we didn't follow our defense plan they way I had hoped."

Lindsey West's double-double (20 points and 13 rebounds) did most of the damage. Her effort was supported by Alyssa Ferdaszewski (14) and Monica Somers (12).

Melissa Montoya led the Sunbirds with 18 points. Brooke Stanley and Denise Fast added 12 and 10 points respectively. Fast pulled down and FPU-high eight rebounds.

The Sunbirds return to the Special Events Center this Saturday to host San Diego Christian in their final home game. Tip-off time is 2:30 p.m.

FPU wraps up the season on Monday, February 27, in Fullerton against Hope International.
