Progress is coming in the Jennifer Azzi era at the University of San Francisco, even if it hasn't been rapid.
With a 75-61 win over Boise State last night, USF moves to 3-2 on the season, which is already more than halfway to their win total for the entirety of last season. In a familiar narrative for the Dons, Mel Khlok was the star as described at the USF website.
Khlok, a native of Sacramento, Calif., poured in a smooth six three-pointers in the contest, allowing for an inside-out attack to spur the offense to 44.8 percent shooting for the game. USF (3-2) gashed the Broncos for 32 points in the paint to go along with Khlok's career-tying outing from beyond the arc. Her 18 points from long range put her at one shot shy of tying the school record for made three-point baskets in a game.
"I don't care about records," Khlok said with a shake after the contest, "I care about wins. And we got one today."
For Khlok and the rest of USF's senior class, winning at even this rate is something that they haven't experienced in a while: with the win against Boise State this will be the first time the team has started 3-2 since the seniors were freshmen and maintained a .500+ record through eight games.
