The Seattle University Women’s basketball team went down to Riverside, California to face off against California Baptist University. The Redhawks fell 83-100 in the road game.
The team played well in the first three-quarters of the game, but couldn’t keep up the momentum—a common occurrence this season.
The team was up 71-62 at the end of the third quarter, but after a strong nine-point rally made by the Lancers, the team wasn’t able to catch back up.
Senior Madeline Dopplick scored a career-high of 19 points during the game and the game was Junior Kamira Sanders first game back after injury, where she scored two free throws that were instrumental to keeping the team ahead in the first period.
Seattle U women’s basketball will continue their season in an away game on Feb. 9 against Utah Valley University.
