Box Score

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Sophomore guard Quinn Thomas connected on five of eight three-point field goal attempts en route to a game-high 21 points to lead the Santa Clara University women's basketball team to a 76-48 victory over Banksa Bystrica, a college team from Slovakia Friday at the Leavey Center.

The win marked the final exhibition contest of the season for the Broncos. SCU opens its regular-season on Friday, Nov. 22 at Lehigh then plays at Temple two days later.

The Broncos raced out to a 30-7 lead in the opening 13:00 of the game, largely on a stellar defensive effort that limited the Slovakian team. Santa Clara shot 50.9 percent from the field in the game, which included an impressive 9-for-18 effort from behind the three-point arc.

Four players scored in double-figures for SCU. In addition to Thomas, Tammy Annas pitched-in 18 points, Kim Butler scored 13 and Kendra Rhea added 12 in the win. Butler led the team with a game-high 15 rebounds.

Santa Clara played without the services of a number of players, including Courtney Cushing and Julie Butler, due to injury.
