Deone Bucannon’s last collegiate game was also the very last NCAA game of the season.

The Vanden High graduate and four-year starter for Washington State suited up for the North in a 20-10 loss to the South in the Senior Bowl at Mobile, Ala., Sunday.

The Cougars’ all-time leading tackler had three tackles, one solo and one assisted in the first quarter, one assisted in the second.

Bucannon was the first Washington State player to participate in the game since Brandon Gibson in 2009.

Earlier this month, Bucannon was awarded the 2013 College Football Elite Defensive Back trophy.

Salonika Quewon-Owens (Armijo) poured in a career-high 23 points and added six rebounds, four steals and two assists to lead Dominican (4-14, 4-8 PacWest) to a 63-53 win over Hawaii-Hilo. She then had 19 points, five steals, four assists and one block in helping the Penguins complete a season sweep of Chaminade with a 77-53 victory. For her efforts, Quewon-Owens was named to the PacWest Final Five for the games played Jan. 20-26, the third time she’s made the Final Five this season.

Chico State trailed Humboldt State 43-34 at the half, but Jazmine Miller (Vanden) scored 14 of her team-high 18 points after intermission to lead the Wildcats (11-5, 7-5 CCAA) to a 69-66 victory. She also had nine rebounds and one assist. Earlier, Miller poured in a team-high 17 points and had six assists and four rebounds in an 85-73 downing of Cal Poly Pomona.

San Diego State (7-10, 4-3) moved over .500 in the Mountain West Conference with a pair of victories last week. Khristina Hunter (Rodriguez) pulled down 13 boards and had four points, two assists, two blocks and one steal in an 88-65 stuffing of San Jose State and then had seven rebounds, three points and a steal in an 88-72 undoing of Utah State.

Renique Fitzpatrick (Armijo) struggled through an 0 for 9 shooting night – teammate Sonia Aguilar was 1 for 21 as part of a 22.4 percent effort by Holy Names as a team – in a 68-49 loss to BYU-Hawaii. She finished with two points, seven rebounds, two blocks and a steal, while Amnesty Bradley (Fairfield) had two points, two rebounds and a steal. Jala Carter (Rodriguez) had one steal. In a later 92-71 loss to Hawaii Pacific, Fitzpatrick had five points, nine rebounds, four steals and three blocks, Bradley and had three points and two rebounds, and Carter had an assist.

Ruby Leon (Fairfield, Solano) poured in a team-high 14 points to go with two rebounds, two steals and two assists, but it wasn’t enough to keep Eastern Nazarene (5-11, 1-8 CCC) from dropping a 71-55 decision to Endicott. Lucy Santos (Solano) added two points, two rebounds and a block.
