BOXSCORE

TORONTO, Ont.-- Defense and a balanced scoring attack helped visiting North Dakota race past host Ryerson University, 77-29, Monday in the second of three exhibition games during UND's foreign trip. UND allowed just 15 percent shooting--including just three made field goals in the second half-- en route to the easy win.

Sophomore Mia Loyd was again UND's leading scorer, producing 16 points and nine rebounds, just one board shy of a second straight double-double. The stage-stealer Monday was true freshman Leah Szabla who had eight points, eight steals, nine assists and four rebounds in 22 minutes of action.

"I thought we had a pretty good effort, we were a little bit tired," UND head coach Travis Brewster said. "We did a good job with the energy level on the defensive end. We do have room to improve defensively, however."

UND stepped on the gas early and kept it there, scoring 10 of the first 13 points before coming out of the first quarter with a comfortable 22-7 edge. The final three scoring possessions in the first 10 minutes were a snapshot of the night for North Dakota. Szabla tripled then later stole the ball and ran a fastbreak with Loyd for a conventional three-point play. She then grabbed another steal and dished to Allyssa Wall for an easy basket and UND was off to the races.

North Dakota hit half of its shots from the floor in the first quarter and Ryerson mustered just 16.7 percent shooting. The lead ballooned to 37-13 quickly and it was a commanding 43-15 lead at the break for the visitors.

Megan Lauck had a solid stat line as well for UND, scoring 15 points with nine rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Madi Buck contributed 10 points and backup post and freshman Erin O'Toole scored 10 with six rebounds in just 14 minutes of play.

North Dakota will conclude its Toronto trip tomorrow with another exhibition game against area all-star players. The game is set for 6:00 p.m. Central from Seneca College.
