The UC San Diego women’s basketball team went nuts shooting 3-pointers in the first half and had to hold off a furious Cal State Stanislaus second-half comeback before claiming an 86-80 win Saturday night at Fitzpatrick Arena.
Chelsea Carlise scored 31 points to lead the Tritons to their fourth straight win as UCSD improved to 8-7 overall and 6-2 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. UC San Diego made 11 3-pointers, including eight straight at one point in the first half.
Andreanna Marshall led the Warriors with 26 points, Christin Gowan had 16 and Katie Busi scored 13 with 10 rebounds to pace Cal State Stanislaus (7-5, 5-3 CCAA). The Warriors, however, snapped a five-game win-streak against CCAA opponents but are still 10-3 in their last 13 conference games dating back to the end of last season.
"We had some lack of focus in the first half as we did last night and once we stop doing that we will win games," Stanislaus coach Sharon Turner said.
The Warriors will have to regroup and hit the road this weekend when they travel to Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State San Bernardino on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Both teams are currently in the top four spots in the CCAA standings.
