It has been a tough start for women’s basketball. The Eagles lost their fifth game this season against Concordia University Golden Eagles in Irvine, Calif. tonight.

Regardless of defeat, Biola had quick defense in tonight’s game. Junior guard Aysia Johnson topped off the stat sheet with 24 points and seven rebounds. Sophomore guard Stephanie Lee followed behind with 16 points and seven rebounds. Junior forward Danita Estorga contributed to the game scoring four points and four rebounds.

FOURTH QUARTER FIGHT

It was a battle in the first half. In the second quarter the women were down by 10 but by halftime the deficit was only five. Biola had quick turnovers and continued putting up a battle. The hustle carried into the third, and they were able to get to a one-point deficit. In the end it was not enough as Biola lost to the Golden Eagles 62-68. 

The Eagles (1-5) will return home to Chase Gymnasium with the Golden Eagles on Saturday, Feb. 6 in a back-to-back matchup starting at 5 p.m. The live-stream game footage is available on Biola Athletics’ webpage.
