On Saturday women’s basketball faced off against the La Sierra University Golden Eagles at home. Despite a tight first quarter, the Eagles dominated the second and carried that momentum through the rest of the game.


Biola’s game truly started in the second quarter when redshirt sophomore forward Jordan Rabe opened up a 14-point lead that carried over into the second half. Rabe earned eight points during the second quarter to carry the Eagles’ momentum into the second half. Aiding Rabe, freshman guard Amiah Simmons led Biola’s offense, contributing 20 points to the scoreboard. 

Biola’s defense played an aggressive match as well, effectively shutting down La Sierra’s efforts with 16 turnovers and 13 steals. Redshirt junior guard Aysia Johnson aided the Eagles’ defense with five steals, four assists, three rebounds and one turnover. 

Nothing could stop the Eagles Saturday night as they clinched an easy victory against the Golden Eagles, 81-57.
