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.

Renique Fitzpatrick (Armijo) had two solid games in helping Holy Names (9-6, 5-4 PacWest) go 2-0 for the week.

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.

Our Lady of the Lake (13-1, 4-0- RRAC), led by former Vacaville and Vacaville Christian coach Chris Minner, rolled past Jarvis Christian 102-60 and Texas College 107-57.

Nebraska-Kearney, coached by former Solano assistant Kevin Chaney, split its two games, losing to Northeastern State 64-61 and topping Central Oklahoma 82-70. The Lopers (6-9, 3-6 MIAA) have lost four of five.

Men’s basketball

Ronnie Baker (Rodriguez) poured in 18 points and grabbed three rebounds to help Alaska (10-5, 5-2 GNAC) get by Central Washington 84-80 in overtime. He then had nine points, three rebounds, three steals and three assists in a 79-69 victory over Northwest Nazarene. Rashaad Allen (Rodriguez) had two points, one steal and one rebound over the two games.

DeSean Atkins (Fairfield) contributed 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists in helping Dickinson State (8-12, 3-5 Frontier) climb over Rocky Mountain 95-89. Earlier he had nine points, four assists, two steals and one rebound in an 88-80 loss to Great Falls.

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

Jordan Collier (Vanden) scored five points and added two rebounds, two steals and one assist as Menlo (5-14, 3-3 CalPac) rolled past Pacific Union 80-57. Earlier, Collier had four points, two rebounds and a block in a 72-58 loss to Cal Maritime.

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.

Wrestling

Trinity College, coached by former Armijo standout Marques Gales, lost dual matches with Wesleyan (36-9), Roger Williams (40-4) and Worscester Tech (21-12) to fall to 0-8.
