Lady Cougars lose again at Sac City tournament
The Lady Cougars' grueling preseason continued last weekend at the Sacramento City College Tournament.
Lassen College's women's basketball team pushed its record to 13-3, beating DeAnza 60-54, Foothill 54-47 and losing to Sierra 88-71.
"The players are pretty beat up and it showed. We didn't shoot too well in each of the games," Lassen head coach Mark Nareau said. "We've played in five three-game tournaments already and have played the best teams in the north. It's taken its toll."
Jasmere Kirby and Jasmine Borella were named to the all-tournament team.
Against DeAnza, Kirby hit for 23 points and Borella scored 14.
Against Sierra, Borella had 23 points and seven rebounds, and Kirby netted 17 and grabbed eight rebounds against Sierra.
"We didn't rebound or defend well against Sierra, despite out-playing them in the second half," Nareau said
The two combined for 32 points against Foothill. Jamie Wagner added eight points and seven rebounds. Lassen led just 18-16 at the half, but built up to a 14-point lead in the second half.
The Lady Cougars are idle until the weekend after Christmas when they play in the San Jose City College Tournament.
