USF Women’s Basketball dominated Alabama State 80-29 on Friday to move to 6-4 on the season after dropping three straight games at the Cancun Challenge. The good news was short lived however, as Bethy Mununga and Elisa Pinzan left the game with injuries.

The Bulls got a game-high 18 points from freshman Maria Alvarez and a career-high 16 points from freshman Kristyna Brabencova as they went on to rout the Lady Hornets. A dominating offensive performance was matched with an equally impressive defensive performance by USF with Alabama State only scoring seven points in the second half and a single point in the fourth quarter.

The Green and Gold collected 53 rebounds on the evening, lead by senior Tamara Henshaw who recorded a career-high 15 boards. The Bulls also scored a season high 17 three pointers, with Maria Alvarez draining six of them to lead USF.

USF women’s basketball will take a break from action for exams before returning to action at home against Idaho on December 15th.
