LA JOLLA, Calif. - Dana Webster's layup and free throw with 14 seconds left in the game sealed a narrow 40-38 victory over league opponent Cal State Monterey Bay Saturday night at RIMAC Arena.

Down by just a point, 38-37, Webster made the layup in traffic to put UCSD ahead. She was fouled in the process and drained the free throw to give the Tritons a 40-38 advantage.

Cal State Monterey Bay had two chances to stay in the game on its final possession. The Otters missed a layup and grabbed the offensive rebound, but could not get a second layup to go either.

For the second straight night, UCSD was led in scoring by Miranda Seto, who had nine points while also dishing out three assists and collecting a career-high six steals. McKennan Bertsch had a team-best eight rebounds.

The Otters had the only two players to score in double digits as Chezla Self totaled a game-high 15 and Angelique Bailey added 10. CSUMB, which out-rebounded UCSD 48-36, got 14 boards from Ashley Morgan and 12 from Holly Holcomb.

Both teams shot poorly, with UCSD finishing at 29 percent (15-51) and CSUMB hitting at a 26 percent (14-55) clip. The Otters made just three of 20 three-point attempts and seven of 13 free throws.

Cal State Monterey Bay held a sizable 48-36 advantage in rebounds, including a 15-6 edge on the offensive glass.

UC San Diego led 18-11 at the half.

UCSD improved to 8-4 overall and 5-3 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA). CSUMB dropped to 3-8 and remained winless in the league at 0-8.

After playing its last five games at home, UCSD hits the road next week. The Tritons play at Sonoma State on Friday, Jan. 17, and at San Francisco State on Saturday, Jan. 18. Both games tip at 5:30 p.m.
