Women's Basketball Set to Take on Mt. SAC in Sweet 16
The MSJC women's basketball team will travel to Walnut on Saturday to take on top ranked Mt. San Antonio in a Southern California Regional Final for a chance to advance to the State's Elite
The Lady Eagles and the Mounties have not met since the 2013 State Championship game which Mt. SAC won by a score of 54-41. The Mounties also captured the state title last season and have seven in their illustrious history which ties them with Ventura for most all time. MSJC is still seeking their first state title and are looking to earn a spot in the Elite Eight for the third time in the past five seasons. MSJC has reached the post season play-offs for 11 straight years.
MSJC comes into the game with a record of 26-4, they advanced to the Regional Final with a double overtime win last Friday night at Los Angeles Trade Tech. Mt. SAC enters the contest with a record of 29-2 on the year and advanced to Saturday night's game with an easy win over Antelope Valley last week. The Lady Eagles average a program record 92.9 points per game so far this season led by freshman Delacy Brown who is averaging 18.5 points per game. Randi Johnson will enter the game averaging 14.5 points a contest while Crystal Malveaux checks in at 12.3. The Mounties average 77.3 points per game and have three players averaging double figures for their very balanced offensive attack. Dominique McLaughlin leads the way at 11.6 a night while Maddeline Dopplick and Kali Jones both average 10.9.
The winner of Saturday night's game will advance to take on a Northern California team in the State quarter-finals next Friday at Las Positas College in Livermore.
Saturday night's game at Mt. SAC is set to tip off at 7 pm. Tickets are available at the door.
