Westmont Women’s Basketball Wins at San Diego Christian

Westmont Women's Basketball won its fourth game in a row with a 64-52 Golden State Athletic Conference victory over the Hawks of San Diego Christian (7-9, 0-2) on Thursday in Cajon.

Senior forward Lauren McCoy tallied 17 points, grabbed seven rebounds and added three assists to lead the NAIA 14th-ranked Warriors (10-4, 3-0 GSAC).

Jae Ferrin and Cassidy Tiegs came off the bench to add 11 points apiece. Ferrin also pulled down nine rebounds. Joy Krupa recorded a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds and notched three steals.

Trailing 12-6 in the first quarter, Westmont produced an 8-3 run to pull within one (15-14) before the clock expired. Ferrin and Krupa recorded two layups each in the final two minutes and 10 seconds.

The Warriors continued their hot shooting in the second quarter, scoring the first 12 points. Tiegs scored on a jumper and layup before Ferrin recorded two more layups. McCoy added a layup and Tiegs hit a jumper to make the score 26-15.

The Hawks scored the next eight points to come within three (26-23), but Westmont closed out the half on a 7-2 run on a layup by McCoy, a 3-pointer by Tiegs and a steal and layup by Shelbie McKay. 

After giving up a three-pointer to Danna Robles to start the second half, the Warriors peeled off nine straight points to go up by 14 (42-28). Lauren Tsuneish (nine points) drained a long-range bomb before Morgan Haskin (four points) and McCoy scored on back-to-back layups and Krupa hit a jumper.

The Warriors maintained at least a six-point lead the rest of the way.

Westmont shot 45.6 percent from the floor and won the battle of the boards 44-30.

The next stop on the Warriors' road trip is Phoenix for a game on Saturday afternoon at Arizona Christian (12-3, 1-1)

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!
