Women's Basketball completes perfect LA trip

LOS ANGELES — The Cal State Stanislaus women's basketball team will celebrate New Year's Eve when they get back to Turlock tonight after completing a perfect 2-0 road trip to the L.A. area this week.

The Warriors beat the Cal State L.A. Golden Eagles, 76-59, on Friday to win their fourth straight Caifornia Collegiate Athletic Association contest. Cal State Stanislaus now improves to 6-4 overall and 4-2 in CCAA play.

Cal State Stanislaus has now won five of its last six games overall. The Warriors opened conference play with two losses to Chico State during Thanksgiving week and has not lost a CCAA game since. Dating back to the end of last season, the Warriors are 9-2 in their last 11 CCAA contests.

Friday afternoon at the Eagles Nest, Andreanna Marshall led the Warriors with 19 points and five rebounds with four assists and three steals. Katie Busi grabbed nine rebounds to go with her 14 points and Christin Gowan netted her second straight 17-point game. Gowan also led the team with five assists and five steals.

The Warriors again led wire-to-wire in the game with a 10-point advantage three different times in the first half until a 47-39 intermission score.

Despite shooting just 28.1 percent in the second half, the strong CSUS defense again limited its opponents as the Golden Eagles shot just 16.7 percent (4-for-24) in the second half. The Warriors were able to parlay that into a lead as large as 19 points on a Trisha Werre jumper halfway through the second half.

Stanislaus again got to the free throw line and converted on its opportunities hitting 20 of 26 free throw attempts.

Cal State L.A., which dropped to 5-5  overall and 2-4 in the CCAA, was led by Gretchen Tiernan's 14 points. Shatori Dearman had 13 points and eight rebounds.
