    TUCSON, Ariz. - All five starters scored in double digits while Arizona defeated Fresno State, 92-55, to claim the title of the Arizona Basketball Classic on Sunday.

    Junior forward Elizabeth Pickney was Arizona's leading scorer with 21 points, three of which came from her first career three-pointer. Sophomore forward Krista Warren and senior guard Reshea Bristol each scored 19 points against the Bulldogs, while freshman guard Aimee Grzyb scored 15 points to go with her seven assists. Junior guard Tysell Bozeman had her first career double-double when she scored 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.

    "Reshea Bristol played a great game and has really risen as the team leader," said Arizona head coach Joan Bonvicini. "Aimee Grzyb played her best game as a Wildcat thus far."

    In four of the last five games, Pickney has scored 20 points or more. Today marked her third game in a row where she put up 20-plus points on the board.

    "She (Pickney) has become a very versatile player for us. She has begun to raise her game to another level," said head coach Joan Bonvicini. "In practice we have been working with her to extend her game to the perimeter and the three pointer that she made was a product of her hard work."

    Three Wildcats made the All-Tournament team -- Pickney, Warren and Grzyb. Bristol was the tournament's most valuable player.

    The Wildcats play next on Sunday, Dec. 17 at the McKale center at 3 p.m. against Louisville.
