Victoria, British Columbia - The Michigan State women's basketball team shot 57 percent from the floor and had a balanced scoring attack in an 88-52 rout of the Victoria All-Stars on Monday, Aug. 23 in Victoria, British Columbia. The Spartans, who improved to 4-0, will play Victoria again on Tuesday in the final game of their Canadian tour.

?Tonight's game was important because it allowed us to give a lot of players quality minutes,? MSU coach Karen Langeland said. ?I was very pleased with the way we shot the ball from the field, but I am still concerned about our free throw shooting.?

The Spartans took a 45-32 advantage at halftime and held Victoria to just 20 points in the second half en route to the easy victory.

Junior Becky Cummings (Walled Lake) paced the Spartans with 19 points and seven rebounds, while senior Maxann Reese (Highland Park) added 16 points. Senior Kristen Rasmussen (Okemos HS/East Lansing) continued her strong play with 11 points, six rebounds, seven assists, three blocks and three steals in just 19 minutes of action.

All but two players saw 10 or more minutes of action, while all but one player scored. The Spartan bench contributed 30 points to the victory, paced by junior Nikki Davis' (Brighton) seven points.
