Women’s basketball falls to cross-town rival CRC

City College women’s basketball team lost its third straight Big 8 Conference matchup after losing Jan. 13 to cross-town rival Cosumnes River College in a close 60-56 game.

The Panthers had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds but came up short after the Hawks got their own rebound after a missed free throw and scored. With 10 seconds remaining in the game, Panthers’ freshman guard Jasmine Bernardo attempted a 3-pointer to cut the lead to one, but missed, giving the Hawks the chance to close out the game.

“I think we turned it over too many times, and I think we missed the easy [shots] that were uncontested,” said City College head coach Julia Allender. “I think we relied to heavily on the 3-point line in the second half, and we didn’t rebound the ball.”
