Second ranked Westmont Women’s Basketball (20-3, 9-1 GSAC) clinched their 20th win when they defeated Hope International (10-9, 3-7) by score of 71-68. With this win, Westmont improves to 9-1 in GSAC play.

Aysia Shellmire led the Warriors with a double-double that consisted of 14 points and 15 rebounds. Krissy Karr led offensively as she had 26 points – almost half of which came from three-pointers; she shot at an outstanding 100 percent (4-4) from the three-point line and had an overall shooting percentage of 77.7 (7-9).

As a team, the Warriors shot at 84.6 percent from the three-point line and had an overall shooting percentage of 42.0. The Royals shot at 35.7 percent from the three-point line and shot at 33.8 percent overall.

After a tight first quarter that consisted of a pair of back-and-forth seven-point runs, the Warriors began the second quarter ahead by only four points (24-20).

With only three minutes left in the first half, the Warriors had built up a ten point lead (39-29). However, this lead was short-lived, as the Royals finished the half with a six-point run to close the gap back to only four points (39-35).

With two double-doubles by sophomore Lauren McCoy (17 points and 17 rebounds) and junior Aysia Shellmire (15 points and 10 rebounds) and an outstanding 20 points by senior Krissy Karr, #2 Westmont Women’s Basketball (19-3, 8-1) earned a 66-59 Golden State Athletic Conference victory over #10 The Master’s College (19-3, 9-1). This was The Master’s College first GSAC loss.

After a close first half, the Warriors found themselves down 26-28 going into the third quarter.

Two minutes and twenty seconds into the third quarter, the Warriors went on a vital eight-point run to take a seven point lead (39-32) – a lead that they would sustain for the remainder of the game. This run began with a jump shot by Shellmire, assisted by junior Aimee Brakken; junior Cora Chan added a layup; and McCoy followed with back-to-back layups. The Warrior’s outscored the Master’s 22-13 in the third quarter.

The Mustangs answered by scoring four points within the first minute of the fourth quarter to close the gap to only four points (44-48). The Warriors silenced this momentum when they followed with a six-point run to gain a 10-point lead. McCoy had a jump shot and the subsequent free-throw, and Karr notched a three-pointer.

Second ranked Westmont Women’s Basketball (18-3, 7-1 GSAC) revealed their resilience when they defeated San Diego Christian (5-11, 0-8) by a score of 64 to 37 in their second away game in a week.

“I am really proud of our team effort tonight,” expressed head coach Kirsten Moore. “With our floor leader Krissy on the bench with an injury, everyone else stepped up and secured an important win on the road.”

The Warriors dominated the first half, outscoring the Hawks 34-16. Junior Aimee Brakken earned a six-point run when she scored back-to-back three-pointers to end the first quarter. Then she ignited another six-point run in the middle of the second quarter with a three-pointer. Senior Karlie Storkson followed with a three-pointer of her own.

In a battle between the top two ranked teams in the Golden State Athletic Conference, #2 Westmont Women’s Basketball (17-3, 6-1 GSAC) could not hold off #8 Vanguard (14-3, 6-1) and were defeated by a score of 57-67. After tonight, the Lions and Warriors’ 2015-16 series record is 1-1.

The Warriors immediately set the tone when they began the game with a ten-point scoring streak that lasted four minutes and 35 seconds (10-0). However, the Lions snapped back with an equalizing ten-point run of their own that lasted the next four minutes and 19 seconds (10-10). The Lions ended up outscoring the Warriors 15-13 in the first quarter.

In the second quarter the Warriors earned back their lead when they outscored the Lions 18-10. This was due in part, to a nine-point run that lasted until the final minute and a half of the half. The run was triggered by a three-pointer by junior Aimee Brakken. Sophomore Lauren McCoy added on a free-throw, senior Krissy Karr notched on two free-throws, and junior Cora Chan finished it off with a three-pointer. The half ended with a score of 30-25, favoring the Warriors.

The third quarter consisted of back-and-forth scoring and ended with the Warriors in the lead by four points (47-43).

Sophomore Lauren McCoy earned her fourth double-double of the season to help #2 Westmont Women’s Basketball (16-2, 5-0) overcome the Oaks of Menlo (9-11, 2-5) in their fifth Golden State Athletic Conference game.

There was back-and-forth scoring for the first three minutes of the game, until the Warriors began to pull ahead when they went on a ten-point run that lasted for three minutes (14-6). The run consisted of contributions by senior Krissy Karr and junior Aysia Shellmire. Shellmire notched a free throw and two layups, while Karr added on a jump shot and a three-pointer.

Ultimately, it was the Warriors who dominated the first quarter as they outscored the Oaks 22-12.

Eager to improve upon their lead, the Warriors went on another ten-point run, one-minute into the second quarter. The run began with a layup by McCoy, who in the next 20 seconds made two free-throws. Then, freshman Kayla Sato and sophomore Cora Chan each added on a three-pointer.

With momentum on their side, the Warriors went on a nine-point run that lasted until the end of the first half.

Motivated by the seasoned leadership of senior Lauren Sende, #1 Westmont Women’s Basketball (15-1, 4-0 GSAC) defeated Arizona Christian (9-8, 1-3) by a score of 60-51 and continues to remain undefeated in the Golden State Athletic Conference.

The Warriors dominated the first quarter with a pair of five-point runs that contributed to an early lead of 21-13. The first of these runs consisted of a jump shot by junior Cora Chan and a three-pointer by junior Aimee Brakken – each assisted by senior Krissy Karr. The second consisted of a three-pointer assisted by Sende, followed by a layup by Karr.

The second quarter consisted of back-and-forth score by both the Warriors and the Firestorm – even still, the Warriors had their largest lead of the game (14) with 2:43 left in the half. The Firestorm fought to bridge the gap and the half ended with a score of 35-24.

The Firestorm really began to rain down on the Warriors in the third period when they went on a six-point run to decrease the Warriors’ lead to just three points (38-35). This run consisted of three layups by Alyssa Gruber, Madison Austin, and Courtney Christmas. In this quarter, the Firestorm outscored the Warriors 15-10 and the half ended with a score of 45-39, favoring the Warriors.

The Warriors and the Firestorm were neck and neck throughout the fourth period. However, led by the defensive efforts of Sende (who had seven rebounds in the fourth period alone), the Warriors successfully maintained their lead until the final buzzer.
