Women’s basketball downed the University of La Verne 88-45 last week at Kellogg Arena.
Senior forward Chelsea Waddy-Blow racked up her first double-double of the season scoring a season high of 26 points along with 10 rebounds.
“Credit to my teammates they got me the ball, worked hard on the post and tried to seal early,” Waddy-Blow said. “They just got it to me, they looked for me and credit to them all the way.”
The Broncos took a 13-2 lead in the beginning of the game. La Verne responded with a 5-0 run before the Broncos extended the lead with 12 straight points making the score 19-7.
Senior forward Priscilla Brooks also earned a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds.
La Verne fought back with seconds on the clock, closing the game to 40-29 to end the half.
“We just have to bring our energy and effort from the beginning,” head coach Danelle Bishop said. “We have stretches where we really are really good and stretches where we kind of lose that focus.”
The Broncos shot 6-for-24 from three-point range, while shooting 29 percent from the field.
Sophomore guard Casey McWilliam added 17 points and junior guard Jordyn Shane, was one rebound shy of a double-double finishing with 10 points and nine rebounds.
The Broncos ended the night with 22 offensive rebounds, 23 second-chance points and a 48-30 victory in rebounds.
The Broncos led with 64 points in the paint while La Verne mustered only 12 points.
CPP made it two in a row on Saturday topping Concordia University 65-45 behind junior guard Jackie Ricketson and Brooks who led the team with 10 points.

The Broncos resume California Collegiate Athletic Association play this Friday and Saturday at home against Chico State and Humboldt State.
