Freshman guard Cora Chan led the Warriors in scoring with 16 points off the bench as #11 Westmont Women’s Basketball (20-8) advanced to the semifinals of the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament with a 70-56 win over Concordia (12-15, 5-10). The Warriors will take on #7 The Master’s at 7:00 p.m. in Santa Clarita on Friday.
“It was an incredibly physical basketball game,” noted Westmont head coach Kirsten Moore. “We had times were the style of play took us out of what we were used to doing. But I was proud of the fact that we were able to regroup and stay composed when there were a lot of fouls in this game. We were able to get to the free throw line and get points on the board that way.”
Though the fans cried for more throughout the game, a total of 50 fouls were called – 30 on the visitors and 20 on the home team. The Warriors got to the free throw line 43 times and made 32 of their attempts accounting for 45.7 percent of their total score. Concordia made six of 13 attempts from the charity stripe.
