Lauren McCoy Makes Westmont History with 1,000th Career Rebound

Lauren McCoy scored 16 points, pulled down seven rebounds and recorded three steels in 16 minutes of play to help NAIA No. 6 Westmont Women's Basketball (16-5) post an 80-39 non-conference win over Saint Katherine (0-28). 

With her fourth board of the game, which she corralled on the defensive end off a missed free throw in the second quarter, McCoy collected the 1,000th rebound of her career. She is the first Westmont women's basketball player, and just the fourth of either gender, to accomplish the feat.

The Warriors fielded nine different players in tonight's game with all of them registering at least 16 minutes of play. All nine recorded a field goal and all nine had at least on one rebound. Seven of the nine recorded at least two assists, led by Lauren Tsuneishi who posted six assists and six points.

Adding 13 points to the Warriors' score was Jae Ferrin who also tallied seven rebounds and five assists. Cassidy Tiegs contributed 12 points, five assists and three rebounds off the bench. 

Morgan Haskin and Maud Ranger scored nine points apiece with Ranger adding four assists and three rebounds. Madison Kast saw 21 minutes of play in tonight's game and provided the Warriors with eight points and seven rebounds.

The Warriors were in control from the outset and ended the first quarter with a 24-9 advantage. At halftime, Westmont led 42-17. 

Westmont returns to Golden State Athletic Conference play on Thursday when they host No. 23 Arizona Christian (17-5) on Thursday night. The Warriors will be looking to avenge their only loss in conference play. On January 13, Westmont fell to the Firestorm 70-69 in Phoenix. Since that time, Westmont has won six straight. Tip-off is planned for 5:30 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
