San Diego, Calif. – San Diego State used 46.4 percent shooting and a lot of energy to stomp USC Friday night, 80-46.

Courtney Clements lead SDSU with 25 points, Chelsea Hopkins added 13, and Nae Scurry had 11. For the Trojans, Cassie Harberts put up 15 points and Ariya Cook, 11.
USC looked slow from the start, and shot only 30.3 percent in the first half and 32.1 percent for the game. SDSU outscored them 36-14 in the paint, and out-rebounded them, 48-29.
SDSU is now 4-2 and USC, 3-3.
