SAN DIEGO -
The San Diego State women's basketball team returns home to play its first game in six days when USC pays a visit to Viejas Arena on Friday, Nov. 30, beginning at 7 p.m.
The Women of Troy are the third of four Pac-12 squads on the 2012-13 non-conference slate for the Aztecs, who will hit the road to face Washington on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Friday's contest has been designated as Girl Scout Night, and prior to tip the organization will present colors and perform the national anthem.
SDSU is coming off a runner-up showing at the Omni Hotels Classic last weekend in Boulder, Colo., where it split two games, defeating Auburn by a 78-57 count, followed by a 67-53 setback at the hands of host Colorado.
Senior guard Courtney Clements earned all-tournament honors after averaging 22.5 points in those two contests, including a season-high 26 points and a career-best six 3-pointers against Auburn.
With her performances, Clements received Mountain West Player of the Week recognition for the fourth time in her career.
Entering Friday's game, Clements finds herself among the Mountain West leaders in several categories, including 3-pt field goals per game (1st - 2.4), scoring (2nd -17.6 ppg), steals (3rd - 2.4) and field goal percentage (8th -.461).
