So Tuesday when the teams met in the opening round of the Big West tournament, the Spartans packed it in around the nation's top scorer, surrounding her with three and sometimes four defenders. San Jose's sagging defense had the desired effect . . . on Lahanas. She had only seven points at halftime.

Last season, her first at the Division I level, Coach Debbie Ayres inherited a team with no returning starters. As a result, she started three freshmen and thought a lot about what she would do when she had an experienced team. "Last year wasn't too difficult in that I didn't have any pressure on me," Ayres said. "Anything we did was a plus. "This year, I feel a little more pressure. The kids are more experienced in this system, they want to do better and I want to do better."
