Women’s basketball traveled to Carson, California over Thanksgiving break in a matchup against California State University, Dominguez Hills on Saturday afternoon. The Eagles had a sluggish start, down 11 at the end of the first quarter and on the short side of a 31-40 halftime score. However, BU came out firing for the remainder of the game, flipping the momentum around and defeating Dominguez Hills, 75-64.

Senior guard Jelissa Puckett led her Eagles with a team-high and career-high 16 points, along with five rebounds and three assists. Junior forward Jazz Benn followed closely behind with 12 points, four rebounds and three assists of her own. Sophomore guard and forward Danita Estorga was a defensive force, racking up nine rebounds along with her 10 points on the night. 


Biola waltzed onto the court, watching the Toros race by them to a quick 23-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. It was more of the same for the Eagles, not quite meshing or able to find a rhythm. The Toros were hot from beyond the arc which allowed them to remain in control all the way into the half.

BU hit the hardwood determined after collecting themselves in the locker room. Dominguez Hills lost their spark, going 2-12 from beyond the 3-point line the rest of the game. Biola took advantage of their cold hands and doubled the amount of points CSUDH scored in the third, pushing them to a one-point lead before the final quarter. The Eagles’ defense was the hallmark of the victory, where they held Dominguez Hills to zero fast break points the entire game. BU didn’t ease up. They continued to make stops on the defensive end and advance further on the offensive end, creating a greater lead with a 17-5 run over the Toros and ultimately winning 75-64.

The Eagles (4-2) will look to extend their winning streak to five at Belmont, California where they will take on Notre Dame De Namur University on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 5:30 p.m. in their first PacWest matchup of the season.
