Cal State Stanislaus 68, Cal State East Bay 63
Cal State East Bay was on the short end of a 68-63 result to Cal State Stanislaus in California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) play on Saturday night. It was a back-and-forth game featuring 23 lead changes with the host Warriors overtaking the Pioneers for the final 105 seconds of regulation.
ÒWe fell back into old habits once again and a very good Stanislaus team took advantage of nearly every mistake we made,Ó said East Bay Head Coach Suzy Barcomb. ÒWe must be able to break the cycle of bad habits which lead to poor performances.Ó
Cal State East Bay took its largest lead of the game at 54-47 following a Stephanie Lopez 3-pointer near the midway point of the second half. Cal State Stanislaus immediately responded with six straight points as the back-and-forth battle continued.
The Warriors knocked down eight 3-pointers with arguably the most important coming from Lauren Goode. Stanislaus (10-4, 7-3 CCAA) took the lead courtesy of GoodeÕs triple with 1:45 left and the Warriors never looked back.
Goode was one of two players on the home squad to finish with a double-double as her night ended with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Teammate Riley Holladay tallied 10 points and 10 boards. Briana Cotton did all of her offensive damage from downtown knocking down four 3-point baskets.
East BayÕs Lopez finished with game-highs of 15 points and seven assists. Danielle Peacon finished with 12 points, Brianna Terrance scored 11, and Tori Breshers contributed 10.
