Westmont Can’t Recover From Cold-Shooting First Half at The Master’s

A cold-shooting first half resulted in a 58-48 Golden State Athletic Conference loss for No. 15 Westmont Women's Basketball at No. 21 The Master's on Saturday.

The Warriors shot just 19.0 percent (4 of 21) from the field in the first half and trailed at 24-14.

In the second half, the two teams played even (34-34), with Westmont making 37.9 percent  (11 of 29) of its field goal attempts, including 42.9 percent from three-point range (6 of 14). The Master's was held to 32.0 percent in the second half (8 of 25), but made 16 of 23 free throw attempts to secure the win.

The third quarter would see the Mustangs lead by as much as 14 and hold a 39-28 lead going into the final frame. 

The Warriors roare back in the fourth quarter. Lauren Tsuneishi, Maud Ranger and Tsuneishi connected for back-to-back-to-back three-pointers, drawing them to within five at 45-40. With just over five minutes left, Kaitlin Larson added a free throw to make the score 45-41.

Unfortunately for Westmont, The Master's would score eight of the next nine points to take a 53-42 lead and the Warriors would get no closer than eight points the rest of the way.

Tsuneishi had 14 points to lead Westmont.

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!
