Women’s basketball has been off to a rocky start this season, however, the Eagles were able to look past their prior loss to Concordia University Irvine yesterday and bounce back for a big win, 62-45.

Sophomore guard Stephanie Lee led the team in points, totaling 17 on 7 of 12 shooting from the field. Lee also tallied five rebounds and four assists. Redshirt junior guard Danita Estorga and sophomore forward Jordan Rabe both racked up 11 points each, with Estorga collecting nine rebounds.

CALM, COOL AND COLLECTED

Concordia began the first quarter shooting a disappointing 0-5 from the 3-point line, allowing the Eagles to run away with an early lead on 7-11 shooting. While there were only two lead changes throughout the game, the Eagles were able to maintain composure and continue to make subtle advances past the Golden Eagles.

Biola found themselves entering the half with a comfortable lead, 37-20. While the Eagles shot weak from behind the arc, they began to take flight with success inside of the paint where they totaled 36 points as opposed to Concordia’s 18 points in the paint. CUI lost any chance of a potential comeback from their poor shooting from the field, averaging 33%.

The Eagles (2-5) will head to Azusa, Calif. on Friday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. to take on rivals Azusa Pacific University in their third matchup of the season. Live streaming of the game can be found on Biola Athletics webpage.
