After serving nearly five years in the Air Force, Salonika Quewon-Owens knows a little bit about defense.

The 2005 Armijo High graduate was named PacWest Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season after helping the Dominican women’s basketball team (2-12, 2-6) sweep a pair of conference games for their first two victories of the season.

The senior guard poured in 19 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and added four assists and two steals in a 79-61 victory over Chaminade. She again scored 19 points and also had eight rebounds, four steals and three steals in a 80-65 win over BYU-Hawaii.

Quewon-Owens, who’s also been named to the PacWest Final Five twice as a nominee for player of the week, leads the team with 10.1 points and 7.9 rebounds per game and is second in minutes played per game at 27.0.

Renique Fitzpatrick (Armijo) followed Quewon-Owens a few years later with the Indians and no doubt received consideration for PacWest honors last week after scoring a career-high 34 points for Holy Names (7-6, 3-4) in an 88-82 overtime loss to Fresno Pacific. She added 10 rebounds for her sixth career double-double and also had four steals, two assists and a block.

The 6-foot-1 senior then had 11 points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in an 84-73 loss to Notre Dame de Namur.

Amnesty Bradley (Fairfield) had a combined four points, eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in the two games for the Hawks.

Also delivering a career high was Jazmine Miller (Vanden) with 26 points to help Chico State (8-4, 4-4 CCAA) down Cal State Los Angeles 68-58. She also had seven rebounds, four assists and one steal. Earlier, the senior guard had 13 points, five rebounds and three assists in an 80-78 edging of Cal State Dominguez Hills.

Khristina Hunter (Rodriguez) matched her career high with 20 points and added a personal-best 17 rebounds, four assists and two steals to help San Diego State (4-9, 1-2 MWC) blast Air Force 72-39. Earlier in the week, Hunter had 12 points, four rebounds, two steals and one block in a 73-64 loss to Boise State.

Ruby Leon (Fairfield, Solano) and Eastern Nazarene (4-9, 0-6 CCC) endured a tough 0-3 week. The former Falcon had a team-high 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and one steal in a 75-51 loss to Roger Williams, nine points, five assists, four steals and two rebounds in a 61-55 loss to Wentworth and finally had two points on 0-for-8 shooting from the floor with three rebounds and two assists in a 56-54 loss to Western New England. Lucy Santos (Solano) had a combined four points, six rebounds and one steal over the three games.

In Texas-Arlington’s 84-67 loss to Louisiana-Monroe, Taylor Caspers (Fairfield) had two points and three rebounds for the Mavericks (1-14, 0-4 Sun Belt).

UC Riverside (4-11, 0-2) dropped its first two Big West Conference games as Tahvia Morrison (Vanden) had an assist in a 82-78 loss to Cal State Fullerton and six points in a 90-78 loss to UC Irvine.

In Cal Maritime’s 61-56 loss to Pacific Union, Shante Sands (Fairfield) had a team-high 13 points, six rebounds, four steals, two blocks and two assists for the Keelhaulers (7-9, 0-2 CalPac).

Our Lady of the Lake, coached by former Vacaville and Vacaville Christian coach Chris Minner, won its first two Red River Athletic Conference games and improved to 11-1 overall by blasting St. Thomas-Houston and Paul Quinn.

Nebraska-Kearney (6-7, 3-4 MIAA), coached by former Solano assistant Kevin Chaney, fell 55-46 to Missouri-Western State and topped Northwest Missouri State, 70-59.

Men’s basketball

Lequan Gomes (Fairfield, Solano) poured in 14 points and added five rebounds and two steals to help Eastern Nazarene (10-2, 4-2 CCC) slip past Wentworth 71-67. He then had nine points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in a 79-76 setback at the hands of Western New England.

Maine-Fort Kent (5-12) suffered through an 0-3 week with James Givens (Fairfield, Solano) likewise enduring some ups and downs. He had 16 points, seven assists, three rebounds and one assist in an 89-74 loss to Apprentice School. Givens then went scoreless after going 0-for-7 from the floor with six assists, two steals and two rebounds in a 71-44 loss to Virginia-Lynchburg. He closed the week with nine points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal as the Bengals fell 82-46 to Washington Adventist.

Koree Cox (Rodriguez) played for Hawaii Pacific (10-3, 5-2 PacWest) in a 96-77 dumping of Dixie State.

Menlo (4-13, 2-2 CalPac) fell 78-60 to Simpson and 53-49 to William Jessup with Jordan Collier (Vanden) getting a combined two points, six rebounds, one assist and one block in the two games.

Earlier, he had 11 points, four rebounds, one steal and one assist in a 66-46 loss to Seattle Pacific. Rashaad Allen (Rodriguez) had two steals over the two games.
