Four conference matchups into their second year in the Pacwest, Eagles women’s basketball sits at 3-1, and sophomore forward Jazz Benn’s play is a big reason why they have gotten off to such a good start.

Despite taking a tough 60-53 loss on the road at Point Loma Nazarene University last Wednesday, Benn was one of the bright spots, chipping in nine points and six rebounds.

But Benn really shined in the Eagles’ thrilling 68-67 overtime victory over rival Concordia University Irvine on Saturday. Through four quarters and overtime, Benn led the Eagles with an impressive 25 points and four rebounds to help her team to a key conference victory.

For her excellent play the last few games and this entire young season so far, Benn is the Chimes’ Athlete of the Week.
