LCC women win, men lose
Lassen College's women's basketball team moved up in the state rankings last week and captured its fourth straight conference victory.
The Lady Cougars (24-4, 4-0) are ranked second in the state and No. 1 in Northern California, and found little resistance from Feather River College last Saturday.
Lassen dropped the Golden Eagles 57-29 in front of a home crowd.
"We didn't play our best game, but sometimes its hard to play a team not up to your level," Lassen head coach Mark Nareau said. "Everybody got to play and it helped us get ready for Shasta."
Lassen travels to Redding to play Shasta Friday, Feb. 8 and hosts College of the Redwoods the following day at 2 p.m.
The Lady Cougars led 24-14 at the half against Feather River. Lassen's Jasmere Kirby finished with 15 points, and Janelle Mack, Jamie Wager and Sabrina Dixon scored 11. Wagner netted three treys.
Dixon started for Jasmine Borella, who sat out with a stress fracture in one of her feet.
Lassen enters this week's play tied with Butte atop the conference standings.
The Cougar men fell to 1-3 in the GVC after a 85-63 loss to Feather River.
The Golden Eagles led 36-24 at halftime and were led by Ricky Dominguez's 28 points and Wendell West hit for 21.
Lassen was led by Tyrice Mitchell's 19 points, including three three-pointers. Julian Larry added 13 and Damian Browne netted 11.
