By Heather Ludegna

Women’s basketball suffered its only loss during winter break against Humboldt State 66-48 on Dec. 2 at Kellogg Arena.

Senior forward Priscilla Brooks racked up a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Following was junior guard Jordyn Shane nine points, a steal and six rebounds.

Humboldt State lead the game with three of its players racking up double-doubles.

“We didn’t have any energy tonight,” coach Danelle Bishop said.

In the first quarter, Humboldt State took a 16-15 lead with four seconds on the clock and the Jacks held the lead for the remainder of the game.

The Broncos struggled offensively shooting 22 percent while Humboldt shot 38 percent.

This loss broke the Broncos three-game winning streak.

“Last night’s game we had a great effort,” Bishop said.

“We didn’t particularly shoot the ball well last night, but we had a lot of energy and our team came really well together and tonight was the complete opposite.”

The night before, CPP topped Chico State 66-50 with Brooks and junior guard Jackie Ricketson leading the way.

Brooks scored a team-high 15 points while Ricketson scored 13 and notched four assists.

After struggling offensively at home against Humboldt, the Broncos rediscovered their scoring touch scoring 78 points in a 78-66 victory on the road against Cal State Dominguez Hills on Dec. 14.

CPP took control early, outscoring the Toros 19-8 in the first quarter.

Four different Broncos reached double-digit totals in points scored.

As usual, Waddy-Blow and Brooks led the way with 15 and 14 points respectively, but CPP’s guards also got in on the scoring.

Ricketson finished with 11 points to go along with seven rebounds and three assists.

In addition, Shane scored a season-high 12 points in her second start of the season.

Five days later, CPP made it two in a row by topping Cal State San Bernardino 60-49.

The Broncos finished the break at home with two wins against Cal State Monterey Bay and East Bay.

The Broncos finished the winter break schedule 5-1 and climbed to third in the CCAA standings.
