Westmont Underclassmen Impress in Exhibition Against Cal

Freshman Sydney Brown scored 10 points and pulled down six rebounds as NAIA eighth-ranked Westmont Women's Basketball travelled north to take on Cal in an exhibition game. The Warriors lost by a score of 79-62.

Brown, a 6-foot freshman from Turner, Ore., went 4 for 10 from the field and collected four of her six boards from the offensive glass.

Of the Warriors' 62 points, 56 were scored by underclassman.

Sophomore guards Taylor Rarick and Lauren Tsuneishi recorded nine points each for the Warriors, with each draining three shots from beyond the arc. As a team, the Warriors made 40.7 percent of their long-distance attempts (11 of 27).

Rarick, who is from Newberg, Ore., transferred to Westmont after playing her freshman year at Concordia in Irvine.

Two more freshman added eight points apiece – Kaitlin Larson a 5-11 post player from Camino Island, Washington and Iyree Jarrett, a 5-5 guard from Whittier.

Stefanie Berberabe, a 5-foot freshman guard from Norwalk, added seven points to the Warriors' cause and Gabriella Stoll, a 6-foot freshman forward from Murrieta, notched five points while tallying four rebounds.

The Warriors played the Golden Bears close in the first half. With 2:27 to play before intermission, Larson sank a pair of free throws to tie the game at 38. With 2:03 remaining, Berberabe hit a jumper in the paint to give Westmont a 40-38 advantage.

Cal answered with a 7-0 run, however, to end the first half and the Warriors were unable to even the score again.

Saturday afternoon, the Warriors will travel to Westwood for another exhibition game against UCLA. Tip-off is scheduled for 2:00 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!
