Women’s basketball was unable to move to .500 on the season Tuesday, moving to 11-13 overall following their loss at Chase Gymnasium to San Diego Christian College 66-57.

Most of Biola’s production was thanks to Adijat Adams, who shot an amazing 80 percent from the field and went three for six from the field. The junior center finished with 27 points, matching her season high set in Biola’s previous bout with SDCC. Other impactful players included sophomore guard Amy Freet, who notched 10 points on the game, and freshman guard Aubree Mittel who added eight to the Eagles’ cause.

After jumping out to an early first half lead, the Eagles’ staunch defense saw their advantage chipped away and eventually surpassed by the Hawks strong shooting as SDCC at one point took a 10-point lead. Biola would ultimately battle back, pulling within one at the half.

Adams hit a jumper with 3:40 to play to give Biola a two-point lead, but would miss a free throw with a minute and a half that would have tied the game. In the end, Biola hurt themselves with missed opportunities. As a whole, the team shot 4-21 from beyond the 3-point arc. SDCC finished the game away with confidence in the last 30 seconds, making all six of their free throws and shutting out the Eagles’ outside shooting.

The loss drops Biola to 2-7 in Golden State Athletic Conference play. They currently sit seventh out of eight in conference standing, with winless Arizona Christian University occupying eighth. The women will look to avoid a three-game skid when they take on The Master’s College in Santa Clarita this Saturday. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
