ROCKLIN, Calif. – The Master’s University women’s basketball team beat William Jessup University 59-42 Saturday afternoon in Rocklin.
With the win, No. 20 TMU’s record improved to 14-6 overall and 4-5 in Golden State Athletic Conference play. The Warriors’ record moved to 7-10 (1-10 GSAC).
“I thought we had a good overall effort,” commented TMU head coach Dan Waldeck. “After playing six of our first nine GSAC games on the road, we are thrilled to end this road trip with a win and head back to some home games. I'm seeing continued improvement by every single player on the roster, and I firmly believe we will be playing our best basketball when it matters most.”
TMU’s “good overall effort” was made evident by outscoring the Warriors for three out of the game’s four quarters (18-12, 12-8, 21-12, 8-10). The Lady Mustangs led the Warriors for 38 minutes and 46 seconds and only had to battle through two lead changes.
Senior forward Bianca Cubello, who went 11-11 on free throws, highlighted the box score by leading all scorers with 19 points, eight rebounds, three blocks, two blocks, and two steals.
As a team TMU went 17-48 (35%) from the field, 6-23 (26%) on three-pointers, and 19-22 (86%) on free throws.
