The Santa Barbara City College women’s basketball team had won four of its last five before traveling to Moorpark on Wednesday, but the Vaqueros would be held to their second-lowest total of the season as they fell to the Raiders by a final score of 56-34.
Santa Barbara (9-11, 4-2) was outshot 44.9 to 25 percent from the field and was held without a three-pointer. Forward Asia Kirven was a big bright spot, scoring 23 of SBCC’s 34 points on 11-of-21 (52.3%) from the field to go along with a team-high eight rebounds.
Guard Katrina Regalado finished with seven points, seven rebounds and three steals. The Vaqueros outrebounded the Raiders 37-33 and were evenly matched in the turnover department (18).
SBCC trailed 14-9 through one and 29-19 at halftime. The Vaqueros scored just six third quarter points as the Raiders pushed their lead to 43-25 heading into the fourth.
Today, SBCC travels to Ventura to play the last of three straight on the road in a 7 p.m. tipoff.
