Women’s basketball fell to Hope International University behind poor shooting and a strong second half from the Royals, 55-50 on Tuesday night.

Both teams had horrible shooting nights with the Eagles hitting only 32 percent of their shots from the field and the Royals making only 30 percent.

After falling behind 15-6 halfway through the first half, Biola closed strong and led 27-23 at halftime.

Coming off of a near triple-double against The Master’s senior guard Becca DeVere had another strong all-around performance collecting nine points, seven rebounds and six assists while shooting 3-6 from the field.

In the second half Hope slowly began to pull away as the Eagles were never able to catch the Royals after losing their lead five minutes into the half. Biola was able to close the gap to at least one with 2:30 left, but nothing was to come of it as Hope held off the late surge.

Sophomore forward Chelsea Hill scored ten points while picking up eight rebounds, almost recording a double-double.

Hope dominated Biola in points off turnovers 17-5 with the Eagles turning the ball over 17 times compared to the Royals’ 11.

The women’s season is slowly slipping away with only three conference games remaining and their Golden State Athletic Conference record sitting at 3-8.

Biola travels to Riverside on Thursday to take on La Sierra University in a non-conference matchup at 7:30 p.m.
