The Cal State Stanislaus women’s basketball team rallied from a 12-point deficit to upset the Humboldt State Lumberjacks 70-67 on Friday night at Warrior Arena.
Junior guard Christin Gowan scored a career-high 24 points to lead the Warriors as Stanislaus wins its second straight contest to improve to 7-16 overall and 6-13 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association.
Katie Busi added 16 points and pulled eight rebounds and Alishea Kelly chipped in 10 points for the Warriors.
Humboldt State's Brittney Taylor netted a career-best 33 points, including 13 free throws to lead the Lumberjacks. HSU dropped to 16-7, 14-5 in the CCAA. HSU entered the weekend in second place in the CCAA standings.
Trailing by 12 points, 58-46, at 7:37 left to go, Gowan started the Warriors engine with a layup and a three-pointer to pull within seven. But HSU managed to maintain a double-digit lead after a pair of free throws by Andrea Bobic to make it 64-54 in favor of the Jacks.
But that would be the last time HSU would score for the next three minutes as Stanislaus went on a 12-0 run to take over the game. The rally was capped by a couple of free throws by Andreanna Marshall after another Gowan layup to tie the game at 64-64.
Humboldt State led by as many as 15 points in the first half with a 15-0 run during a six-minute stretch. Taylor scored 15 of her points in the opening period.
