The womenâ€™s basketball team crushed the El Camino Warriors on Wednesday night, as the Lancers won by 31-points and came away with their 13th win this season. The final score was 72-41.
The Lancers traded points with the Warriors for the first 10 minutes of the first half, but ended the half up by 14-points. â€œThe team played pretty well,â€ said Head Coach Joe Peron. â€œTyler Crockom played really well out there and surprised me.â€ Crockom ended the game with nine points and eight rebounds.
â€œIt was a good game,â€ said Shay Jackson, who had an all around game with 10-points, six-assists and six-rebounds. â€œWe played a lot better in the second half.â€
PCC came out in the second half with â€˜greatâ€™ intensity and soon they were up by more than 20, but even with a huge lead, the Warriors never stopped being aggressive and physical.
â€œYou get pushed around a lot in the block,â€ said Kaitlyn Parks. â€œIt gets tiring, but you have to push past that and play the game.â€ Parks had another big game for the Lancers with 18-points and 16-rebounds.
It was no problem for PCC to get to the rim, as four Lancer players got to double-digits in points. Sabrina Martinez had 10 points and five steals, while three-point specialist Stella Ghazarian had11 points and three assists
â€œOur team played an all around good game,â€ said Ghazarian. â€œ We got tired towards the end, but I donâ€™t think it showed. We are pushed to the brink in practices for this reason. It helps us late in games.â€
The one disappointing part on the Lancers side of the stats would have to be their free throws. They were 11-22 from behind that line. â€œWeâ€™ll get better with time,â€ said Peron. â€œJust need to work on that more in practice.â€
The win came on the night that Peron was handed a game ball for reaching the 400th win in his career at PCC. â€œIâ€™m glad this team got me there,â€ said Peron. â€œI hope Iâ€™m able to get to five or six hundred wins in the coming years.â€
