Women’s basketball fought on despite shortage of players 

In their game against California State University, East Bay on Feb. 23, the California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) women’s basketball team fought to keep the lead with two lead changes throughout the game; but ultimately fell short, losing 67-56. 

Although they were down by 10 points in the first quarter, their defensive full-court press caused several turnovers as East Bay charged toward their side of the court.

Her second game back after recovering from an injury, Lauren Pointer (#1) gradually increases her playing time. While she scored three points and secured three rebounds, her time was cut short after receiving a technical in the third quarter. After diving to save the ball from going out of bounds, there was an altercation with East Bay’s Kelsey Valencia (#1), resulting in a technical for both players.  

The Otters were down by eight at halftime, but the shortage of players due to the technical and three other players remaining injured kept them from breaking the lead before the final buzzer.
