The former Indian had 16 points, 10 rebounds in an 87-65 rematch victory with the Silverswords, 25 points and eight rebounds in a 115-98 win over BYU Hawaii, and nine points, 17 rebounds and four assists in yet another game with Chaminade, a 102-80 victory.

She also had four steals and two rebounds in the former, five assists and two rebounds in the latter. The Lopers are coached by former Solano assistant Kevin Chaney.

Denisha Lundy (Vanden) earned Cal State Dominguez Hills Athlete of the Week honors by scoring 16 points, with all five of her baskets 3-pointers, and adding four assists and three rebounds for the Toros (3-7, 2-4 CCAA) in a 54-53 edging of Cal State East Bay. She also had seven points, five assists and three rebounds in a 78-66 loss to Cal State Monterey Bay.

Eastern Nazarene (6-3, 2-1 Commonwealth Coast Conference) lost big and won small as Presley Neufeld (Solano) had six points and seven boards in a 68-39 loss to Massachusetts-Dartmouth and 11 points, three assists and two rebounds in a 61-51 win over Gordon.

Goli Tavassoli (Vanden, Solano) stood tall for Waldorf by getting 15 points, four assists, two rebounds, one block and one steal in a 73-57 dumping of Southwestern Christian, adding 13 points and two rebounds in a rematch of the two teams, won by the Warriors (11-6, 2-2 Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference) 67-58.

Lourdes, coached for former Fairfield HIgh standout Zareth Gray, got its first January win in its two-year history by topping Marygrove College 63-57. The Gray Wolves (5-12, 2-7 Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference) also lost to Siena Heights 72-37.

Our Lady of the Lake (13-1, 6-1 Red River Athletic Conference) suffered their first loss of the season by falling to Wiley 90-87. The Saints, led by former Vacaville and Vacaville Christian coach Chris Minner, also nailed Northwood 102-72.
