The Westcliff University women’s basketball team battled Sunday in an 82-72 loss to Benedictine Mesa at Santiago Canyon College.
The Warriors shot well, nearly 60-percent from the field, but 34 turnovers were too much to overcome.
“Turnovers have been our problem the whole season,” Westcliff head coach Kyle Rouse said. “We just have to clean it up.”
Lauren Davis continued her remarkable season, finishing with a game-high 32 points on 13-of-22 shooting.
Davis rounded out her afternoon with 11 boards, four steals and three assists.
“Lauren played very well, she’s hard to guard, no matter what,” Rouse said. “You can’t guard her with a post, she’s too quick. You can’t guard her with a guard, because she’s too physical. She did a great job.”
Rouse also complimented the play of Patty McClure (eight points, five rebounds), especially on the defensive end, as well as Maya Armenta, who filled in at starting point.
“She was gassed at the end, you could tell,” Rouse said. “But she played well for us.”
Murrellene Woodson had a nice afternoon, turning in 12 points and three boards.
The Warriors will need to regroup quickly as a trip to San Diego State looms Tuesday.
Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
