TRITON WOMEN STOP DOMINGUEZ; REGIONAL TESTS NEXT

After posting a significant conference road victory, the Women’s Basketball team plays the first pair of four straight Division II regional games when it travels to Las Vegas this week to battle Seattle Pacific and Western Washington in the Great Western Shootout (Cal Poly Pomona will be the fourth team in the field)...Coach Janell Jones’ club is now 3-1 overall, 2-1 in the CCAA and tied for third in the conference standings, just one half game back of league-leading Cal State Bakersfield.

 

SPU is 4-3 on the year and ranked 24th nationally...The Falcons defeated UCSD by five in the first round of the 2006 NCAA Playoffs...Western Washington comes into this week’s play 6-1 and ranked 14th in the country...The Vikings are defending champions of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

 

Last Saturday night, senior guard Leora Juster continued to play like the reigning CCAA Player of the Year she is, pouring in 23 points to lead UCSD to a 57-50 victory over previously undefeated Cal State Dominguez Hills...Juster knocked down 6-of-10 from the floor and 10-of-16 from the charity stripe while snagging five rebounds and handing out three assists...Senior forward Hillary Hansen, who finished with 10 points, scored the game’s first bucket 33 seconds in and the Tritons never trailed...UCSD shot a paltry 33% from the field, but held the Toros to just 31%, forced 20 turnovers and outrebounded Dominguez, 42-35...The frontcourt duo of sophomore Michelle Osier and junior Meaghan Noud accounted for seven boards apiece to pace UCSD.

 

PATTERSON BACK AS UCSD MEN TACKLE CSU DOMINGUEZ HILLS

Trying to find some missing consistency, Coach Bill Carr’s Men’s Basketball squad plays an important CCAA contest Wednesday night at Cal State Dominguez Hills...UCSD sits 3-4 overall and 1-1 in conference...This will be the Tritons’ final outing until they travel to Humboldt State, Jan. 4...Dominguez is also 1-1 in league play and the Toros are 3-3 overall...It is expected that sophomore forward Henry Patterson, an All-CCAA first team selection a year ago, will be back in action Wednesday...He’s missed the first six games after suffering an injury in the Tritons’ final exhibition outing against USD...Junior guard Clint Allard (15.7 ppg) tops UCSD in scoring to date and sophomore forward Darryl Lawlor (5.3 rpg) is the No. 1 rebounder...The Tritons swept the two-game series with Cal Dominguez Hills last year.

 

SKEWES TOP TRITON AT LAS VEGAS DIVING EVENT

Junior Andrew Skewes finished third in the one-meter diving competition at last weekend’s UNLV Diving Invitational in Las Vegas...Unfortunately, the 255.05 points Skewes accumulated left him just short of the qualifying mark needed for the NCAA Division II Championships...Junior Jeff Bryant and senior Daniel Gordh placed ninth and 11th respectively on the one-meter...On the three-meter board, Skewes was eighth while Bryant, Gordh, Aaron Cantu and Kevin Sullivan occupied the 10th-13th slots.
