Otters grapple with tough loss against the Lumberjacks

California State University, Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) women’s basketball team came up short against Cal Poly Humboldt on Feb. 3 with a final score of 59-70.

Senior guard Lauryn Pointer (#1) scored 25 points, but her career-high performance was not enough to prevent the Lumberjacks’ victory.

Humboldt forward Madison Parry (#34) and guard Kaz Parks (#10) were offensive threats to the CSUMB defense, racking up 3-pointers and delivering pressure.

The first half was a back and forth battle, as both teams attempted to secure the lead, coming to a close score of 18-20, with Humboldt taking the lead.

The Lumberjacks took control of the scoreboard as the accuracy of CSUMB declined in the second period.

CSUMB freshman forward Rayshanti McNeal Price (#25) helped bring the team closer to a potential victory after securing an offensive rebound and sinking a shot in the final 2 minutes, but Humboldt’s Kaz Parks responded with a 3-pointer in the closing seconds, ending the potential Otter comeback.

The Otters face the Sonoma State Seawolves on Feb. 5.
