1. We changed our style of play....we need to get the ball up and down
2. Play fast
3. It'll be fun because we're gonna let it fly! Twisted Evil

Pilots Win!

Led by Aussie freshman Haylee Andrews and senior Darian Slaga, each scoring 19 points, the Pilots started fast and held on to beat Utah Valley (2-1) in Orem, 65-60 in their first game of the season.

UP next takes on Weber St. in Ogden at 4pm on Monday.  Weber St. won their opening game of the season on Friday over La Verne, 105-43. Rolling Eyes

Pilots Win...again!

Julie Spencer had a double-double with 24 points and 14 rebounds and freshman Haylee Andrews drops 23 as the Pilots run away from a tight game in the fourth quarter, winning 89-73.  Last season WSU trounced the Pilots in Portland, 91-70, and it might have helped that UP Assistant Coach Skyler Young was an assistant at MSU the past two seasons.

Plenty of beautiful empty purple seats in Ogden on the video feed, all that color must have made the Pilots feel right at home.  Razz  

The Pilots will be heading to Honolulu for their next two games, Hawaii on Friday and Arizona on Sunday.

The Pilots beat Hawaii (0-4) in front of over 1200 fans in Honolulu today, 72-65, but it was a lot tighter than the score would indicate, and the Pilots almost let it get away by turning the ball over on a number of occasions down the stretch while trying to break through Hawaii's full court pressure.

Freshman Haylee Andrews again acted as the experienced floor leader as she and senior Darian Slaga each scored 17 points, although together they could have put the game out of reach earlier by sinking their free-throws....they were a combined 9-16.

Much tougher test on Sunday against Arizona, but a 3-0 start, all against D1 opponents on the road, is always nice.  The Pilots first home game of the season is against Cal St. Fullerton next Saturday at noon as part of a triple-header that includes men's games, USC-Upstate vs. Cal Poly at 2:30 and Texas St. vs. UP at 5:00

Don't know yet how many shots the Pilots put up today, but their orders were the "shoot a lot....just let it fly!"

I was told the goal was to put up 70 shots, although they did pull it back a little as the clock was winding down in their 83-74 win over Cal State Fullerton in the Pilots home opener.

EDIT: The Pilots put up 82 shots and scored 83 points on 40.2% shooting.

Seniors Julie Spencer and Darian Slaga led the team with a combined 50 points and 18 rebounds.

Next game is against Utah State in Portland on Wednesday @ 7pm.

Pilots outscore Utah St. 27-14 in the 4th quarter on their way to a 61-54 win.

Unfortunately, two starters, guard Josie Matz and point guard Haylee Andrews go down with ankle injuries, but Josie is able to return and limp around while scoring 15 of her 19 points in the 4th quarter to complete the comeback after trailing by 8 at the beginning of the quarter.

The Pilots are now 5-1 (their best start in 17 years) and next play at PSU on Saturday at 2pm.

The Vikings (4-0) are ranked eighth in the nation among mid-majors by espnW while giving up only 48.2 points per game this season. The Vikings have also beaten their opponents by an average of 30.5 points per game, ranking them first in the Big Sky and 11th in the nation for scoring margin.

Vikings win, 92-79 in the Viking Pavilion'  

Both teams played evenly, but PSU's vaunted defense forced 18 UP turnovers resulting in 30 points, while UP forced 15 turnovers for just 13 points...and that was the difference.
