Biola women’s basketball rode a strong second half to a 59-44 victory over Point Loma Nazarene University on Wednesday night.

Junior center Adijat Adams led the way for Biola totaling 14 points and 17 rebounds, eight of which were offensive, while junior guard Amy Freet picked up 13 points and ten boards.

The Eagles and Sea Lions were tied at 27 at halftime with Point Loma outshooting Biola with 40 percent from the field compared to Biola’s 30 percent.

In the second half the teams exchanged points for the first five minutes keeping the game tied at 38, but that is when the Eagles pulled away. Biola went on a 13-0 run over the next five minutes to distance themselves and Point Loma never caught up.

The Sea Lions shooting went down the drain in the second half putting up a measly 15-percent from the field while the Eagles shot 45-percent.

The win improved Biola’s record to 4-3 overall on the season. The Eagles next take the court Monday night when they host long time rivals Azusa Pacific University at 7:30 p.m.
