The Cal Poly women’s basketball team dominated Cal State San
Bernadino with a 63-46 win followed by Friday and Saturday’s wins
against Cal State Dominguez Hills and Cal State Los Angeles.

The Broncos ended the week with an 8-1 CCAA standing and 11-2
overall record.

Friday’s 55-45 win was one for the record books as Cal Poly
women’s basketball’s 800th win.

“I think getting the win and being a part of that is great for
this group of kids because they are doing everything I ask,” said
head coach Scott Davis. “It gives them a piece of history.”

The Bronco’s were up by 8 at halftime, and in for a speech from
Davis.

“I wasn’t real excited about the 8 point spread because there
was a time out with 4:55 to go,” said Davis. “We wanted to go into
halftime with 30-15. That stretch right there hurt us because we
had the chance to really expend that lead a little bit.”

Reyana Colson scored 23 points for the Broncos, with 10
rebounds, 2 assists and 5 steals, playing a total of 38 minutes.
Colson took quite the beating from the Toros in a physical game and
muscled through the competition to make 9 of 12 free throws.

“Reyana Colson is the best player in the conference,” said
Davis. “Reyana Colson might be the best player in the West Coast
period. I wouldn’t trade her for anybody.”

Davis made sure to not use too many of the players as precaution
to save muscle for the five games in 9 days the Broncos played.

The Broncos played tough against Cal State Los Angeles Saturday,
working hard to break the Golden Eagle’s tough defense inside the
paint.

“We kind of adjusted the way we were going to guard them inside
at halftime,” said Davis.

“They’ve got so much size and it’s very difficult to move them.
I thought we did a better job in the second half in how we guarded
that.”

The hard work paid off, with the Broncos ending the game up by 8
with a score of 61-53.
