Portland, Ore (Nov. 30, 2004)-- Senior guard Julie Sullivan's 11 points led the BYU women's basketball team to an easy 70-35 victory over the Portland Pilots, Tuesday.

Sullivan also contributed with a team high six rebounds as the Cougar team dominated from start to finish. BYU took a 15-6 lead 10 minutes into the game and never looked back. They had a 12-point, 29-17 advantage at the end of the first half.

It was more of the same in the second half as BYU outscored Portland 25-10 in the first 10 minutes of the second period to put the game out of reach.

"We defended really well tonight and took them out of their game," said BYU coach Jeff Judkins. "We wore them down in the second half as well. This is a huge road win for us."

The lopsided game gave coach Judkins an opportunity to play his entire bench providing some valuable playing time to his freshman players.

"We were able to play a lot of our freshmen, they needed to get some up and down experience on the court, and they did a good job for us," added Judkins.

Ambrosia Anderson led from the bench strength, scoring nine points and grabbing five boards. Freshmen Mary Martha Abell and Lauren Riley also got some good playing time with Riley picking up a season high 10 points followed by eight from Abell. Mallary Gillespie also played, finishing with four points and two rebounds. Overall, the Cougar bench contributed 40 points to the huge road win.

BYU finished the game shooting 49 percent from the field, and 71 percent from the free throw line. They outrebounded the University of Portland 47 to 29.

For the Pilots, who fall to 2-3 on the year, center Ashlee Orndorff led the way with a game-high 13 points and six rebounds. Portland shot a low 24 percent from the field, and went to the free throw line three times, making just one from the charity strip.

With the win, the Cougars improve to 3-1 on the season, and return home to host George Washington University on Monday, Dec. 6 in a 5:30 p.m., tip off. The game will air live on BYU-TV.
