Women’s basketball traveled to Irvine, Calif. on Saturday afternoon to round out their shortened season against Concordia University Irvine. Biola lost to CUI just last night, however, they were able to turn the tables and defeat the Golden Eagles in a 84-67 win.

EAGLE’S COMEBACK

Sophomore guard Stephanie Lee led Biola’s offense with 20 points and four assists. Sophomore forward Madi Chang popped off for 17 points on seven of eight from the field and three of four from behind the arc. Senior forward Jazz Benn was solid on all aspects of the game, earning 13 points, seven assists and four rebounds.

The Eagles entered the first quarter with energy that could not be matched. A quick 23-9 lead swiftly transformed into a 39-23 halftime lead. The team did not back down coming out of the locker room, as Biola found 23 points from bench players compared to Concordia’s nine. The momentum continued through the third, but as per usual, the Eagles let the lead slip in the fourth quarter—a CUI 25-15 run. Thankfully, Biola produced enough buckets in the first three quarters to maintain the lead and still go out with a victory, 84-67.

The Eagles ended the regular season with a 4-9 PacWest record for 2021.
