Fullerton ends season for SBVC women

first_imgThe 13th-seeded Wolverines, who recorded the first playoff win in the program’s history last week in an upset of Orange Coast, finished 20-10. “The game was very physical, and in the first half I think the officials got caught up with the fans,” SBVC second-year coach Sue Crebbin said. “They have a homecourt advantage. I think they (officials) settled down in the second half.” By the end of the first half, it looked like the Hornets might make the second half largely a moot point. Fullerton drew 15 first-half fouls, was 11 of 17 from the line, led by as many as 12 points in the first half before taking a 44-34 halftime lead. SBVC had six different players with at least two first-half fouls, including Ja’Nae Westmoreland, who had three. “It (foul trouble) forced us to go to a zone, when we prefer to stay with a man defense,” Crebbin said. FULLERTON – The San Bernardino Valley College women’s basketball team had already gone farther than it ever had before. But the Wolverines fell short of their much larger goal. But the Wolverines came out firing to start the second half, going on a 12-2 run to tie the score 46-46 on a Ronisha Edwards jumper with 15:01 to play. “They made some outside shots because we were playing off them, protecting against the drive,” Fullerton coach Debi Woelke said. “We had to guard them a little closer.” Fullerton scored the next six points, and SBVC couldn’t get closer than four points thereafter. The Hornets never pushed the lead beyond 10 in the second half. “We were caught between a rock and a hard place,” guard La’Quita Jordan said. “We wanted to play them tight, but we had the fouls.” Both Shy Walter (15 points) and Edwards (13 points) fouled out for SBVC, but both of those came in the final minute. Edwards and Jordan (16 points) provided some offense off the bench for the Wolverines, who were used to playing lower-scoring games. “Jordan and Edwards are like instant offense for us,” Crebbin said. But the Wolverines’ instant offense wasn’t enough to overcome Fullerton, which shot 68 percent in the first half, and 59 percent for the game. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
