Women’s basketball dropped to .500 overall with a 51-36 loss to Azusa Pacific University on Monday night. The 4-4 Eagles found former Golden State Athletic Conference rivals too much to handle as the women were unable to secure their third straight win.

The Eagles struggled in the first half, shooting only 5-20 and 0-5 beyond the arc. The Cougars, also struggling to put up points, found some success at the free throw line, going 10-10 from the charity strike in the first half. Trailing 23-11 midway, the Eagles gained some momentum in the second period, scoring 25 and shooting 34 percent from the field. Unfortunately, APU improved as well, dropping 28 to cruise to a solid win over the Eagles.

Biola was led by sophomore guard Amy Freet, who knocked down 15 points with three rebounds. Sophomore forward Chelsea Hill added 10 points with five boards, and junior center Adijat Adams helped secure her team points in the paint as she put up 10 points.

The women look to bounce back quickly, as they take on California Maritime Academy on Friday. The Eagles, currently 1-4 on the road, will travel to Vallejo for a 5:30 p.m. tipoff.
