Lady Cubs Drop Two

Dec. 18, 2007

The week of last was difficult for the Lady Cubs as they dropped two games to Grossmont College and Taft College.

The Lady Cubs fell behind 11-2 and never found composure during the rest of the first half. Grossmont led 38-19 at half time and that turned out to be the major difference. LA City played a close and tough second half in only being outscored, 30-25.

Freshman guard Latrice Klyce (Leuzinger HS) led the LACC assault with 26 points and nine rebounds.

After 10 consecutive games on the road, the Lady Cubs welcomed a return to The Gym. Un-fortunately, Taft College was equal to the task in pulling off an eight point victory over LA City.

“It was a tough loss for us considering we had looked forward to getting back on a friendly floor,” said Lady Cubs head coach Wendell Westbrook. “We’re making positive strides but it seems as if we take a step or two backwards at all the wrong times. That’s part of being a young team but I see improvement and we know where we have to improve if we want to regain a competitive stature.”

Freshman forward Antwanda Calvin (Locke HS) and Klyce each scored 10 points. A team total of 22 turnovers, however, proved to be the deciding handicap.
