Britney Thomas led in scoring on the night with 19 points.  Genaya Wilkinson had a double double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.  Point guard Crystal Malveaux just missed a double double as she scored 15 points and dished out 9 assists, while Sarina Johnson also scored 15 in the win, 12 in the first half to get MSJC off to the fast start.

The win improved the Lady Eagles record on the season to 25-1 overall, they are 10-1 in PCAC play.  San Diego City fell to 8-14 overall and 5-6 in conference games.  MSJC will be back in action on Friday when they travel to El Cajon to take on Grossmont in a 6 pm contest.  The Lady Eagles will play their final regular season home game next Wednesday February 17th when they host Mira Costa at 5 pm.
