first_imgIt was the least Murphy could do for her longtime friend after her Trojans defeated Quinn’s Bruins for the fifth consecutive time, 62-55 in front of a school-record 9,749 fans Saturday afternoon at the Galen Center. “As a competitor, you can’t think like that in a game, that somebody is your friend. You just want to win,” said Murphy, who finished with a team-high 13 points. “But I have a ton of respect for her.” Most WNBA experts expect Quinn to be among the first three players selected in the WNBA draft this spring, but for all of her accomplishments at UCLA, she hasn’t had much success against the Trojans. USC has beaten UCLA in a variety of different ways during its streak in the series. Saturday, the Trojans’ balanced offense and physical defense down the stretch were the difference. Nine players scored for USC (15-9, 9-5). Murphy (13 points, 11 rebounds) and seniors Jamie Funn (10 points, seven rebounds) and Jamie Hagiya (10 points, five assists) led the way, and USC’s bench outscored UCLA 15-0. “Our bench usually does some damage for us,” UCLA coach Kathy Olivier said. “Today they didn’t. “Every time Noelle caught the ball, she was swarmed. That’s what’s happened all year. We need other people to step up when that happens.” USC vs UCLA LOS ANGELES – It was probably somebody else’s job, but Shay Murphy insisted on doing it herself. So she grabbed the glass of water from a USC staffer, walked in front of the group of media assembled for UCLA’s press conference and set it down in front of Bruins senior guard Noelle Quinn. Quinn smiled a bit, then nodded at Murphy. center_img Quinn finished with a game-high 18 points, 14 of them in the second half. Lindsey Pluimer added 14 points. UCLA (13-13, 7-7) led for all but 30 seconds of the first half and took a 29-28 lead into halftime. The Trojans amped up their defensive pressure in the second half and took the lead for good on Hagiya’s 3-pointer a few minutes into the second half. With the scored tied 55-55 with 3:53 remaining, the Trojans went into a full-court press and forced UCLA into five turnovers. The Bruins did not score another point. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgCamas Mayor Scott Higgins sees his city as a major contender in the much-talked-about race to land an expansion of chipmaker WaferTech’s Taiwan-based parent.“We’ve been the (company’s) only semiconductor fab in the U.S.,” Higgins said in response to a news article speculating about the project.o Reduced business and occupation tax rate to .275 percent from .484o Exempts gases and chemicals used in manufacturing from sales and use taxeso Exempts labor and services related to construction from sales and uses taxeso Business and occupation tax credit of $3,000 per workero Machinery exempted from personal property taxesSource: http://apps.leg.wa.govThe director of Oregon’s state economic development agency, Business Oregon, last week referred to the race to land the project while standing before an Oregon legislative committee as being between Oregon and New York, according to The Oregonian.Called “Project Azalea,” the expansion is rumored to be a multibillion-dollar chip foundry. In order to land the highly sought-after prize in upstate New York, that state’s officials are sweetening the deal with millions of dollars worth of incentives, putting Oregon at a disadvantage, said Tim McCabe, director of Business Oregon.Camas, on the other hand, doesn’t have to throw money at the project because the city already has several advantages over sites being considered in Oregon and New York, said Paul Dennis, president of the nonprofit Camas-Washougal Economic Development Association.last_img read more
