VISALIA — Taylor Hamilton poured in 23 points and the Solano Community College women’s basketball team put together two solid halves in topping Sacramento City College 63-58 in the consolation semifinals of the Tom Gilcrest Invitational of College of the Sequoias, Saturday.
“We really controlled the game. Defensively, we were very solid. Our energy level was high. I just thought we showed a lot of heart,” Falcons coach Matt Borchert said. “It’s on a Saturday, the third day of the tournament, it’s a meat-grinder of a tournament, the biggest and the best, a 10 a.m. game. You’ve got to show a lot of heart. We were up double digits the first half and the second.”
Of Hamilton, Borchert said, “Taylor Hamilton was fantastic, she really carried us.”
Solano (4-2) got nine points from Ariel Clay and five from Justice Robinson.
The Falcons close out the tournament against Los Angeles Valley at 10 a.m., Sunday.
