WOMEN'S COLLEGE HOOPS: Misa, Vikings make Big Sky win an inside job

Portland State evened its Big Sky record at 1-1 with a 66-60 home victory Saturday afternoon over Weber State.

Angela Misa came through with 16 points and a game-high 16 rebounds for the Vikings, and Kate Lanz added 14 points and a game high-tying seven assists as PSU improved to 3-8 overall.

It was Misa's fifth double-double of the season.

The Viks (4-8, 2-1 Big Sky) held the Wildcats (4-6, 0-1) to 30.5-percent field-goal shooting. PSU shot 35.0 percent and led 28-12 in points off turnovers, forcing 22 and committing 19.

PSU trailed 22-19 at the half, but took its largest lead, eight points, with 12:39 remaining.

"Our team really responded well in the second half," Vikings coach Sherri Murrell said. "We weren't really executing any of the plays that we drew up and were settling for jump shots. We asked them to get points in the paint, whether on drives or by dumping it into our posts. I've got to give our team a lot of credit for coming out and scoring in the paint in the second half."
