Ruby Leon filled up the stat sheet as well as the basket as the Eastern Nazarene women’s basketball team split a pair of games last week.

in a 61-55 loss to Salve Regina, the former Fairfield High and Solano Community College standout hit all eight of her free throw attempts in scoring 24 points – 43.7 percent of the Lions’ total – and getting four steals, three rebounds and two assists.

Leon did less scoring but plenty of everything else as her 22 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two steals helped ENC (5-10, 1-7 CCC) top Gordon 65-53.

The former Falcon leads the Lions with averages of 27.0 minutes, 12.8 points and 1.7 assists per game.

Salonika Quewon-Owens (Armijo) scored 19 of her game-high 23 points and added 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block, but it wasn’t enough to keep Dominican from falling 79-78 to Hawaii Pacific. The Penguins (2-14, 2-7 PacWest) also fell 80-59 to Azusa Pacific with Quewon-Owens getting five points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Amnesty Bradley (Fairfield) had a combined six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in the two games.

Chico State (9-5, 5-5 CCAA) split its two games as Jazmine Miller (Vanden) had three points, four rebounds and five assists in a 64-61 loss to Cal State East Bay before amassing 15 points, six rebounds, three steals and one assist in a 62-48 win over Cal State Monterey Bay.

UC Riverside (4-13, 0-4 Big West) saw its losing streak extended to 10 games with a pair of setbacks, including a 77-67 loss to UC Davis in which Tahvia Morrison (Vanden) had one rebound.

Rashaad Allen (Rodriguez) had two points, one steal and one rebound over the two games.

Over the two games, Juston Goodwin (Buckingham Charter, Solano) had four points, seven rebounds and two assists.

In Pacific Union’s loss to Menlo, Anthony Gonzalez (Vacaville) had four points, two rebounds and an assist. The Pioneers (3-18, 2-3 CalPac) had an earlier 95-68 win over UC Merced during which Gonzalez had eight points, nine rebounds, four assists and a steal.

Eastern Nazarene (10-4, 4-4 CCC) lost 78-69 to Salve Regina and 67-60 to Gordon with Lequan Gomes (Fairfield, Solano) getting nine points, four rebounds and an assist in the former, five points and eight rebounds in the latter.
