Basketball suffers first defeat

The Warriors began their week the same way the previous two had begun. Playing on the road at Sonoma State, the Warriors were able to hold off a late Seawolves rally and get their fifth win of the season 67-61.
The team improved to 5-0 overall and 2-0 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA).
The team benefited from strong performances from Tyler Barber, Rob Walters and Sam Marcus.  Barber led the team with 16 points, 14 of which came during a late surge by the Seawolves who did not go down without a fight.
Star-center Marcus Bell had an off night as he went just 5-13 with 10 points.
Sloppy play at San Francisco State would end the Warriors’ winning streak two days later.  The Gators were allowed to go to the foul line 31 times and sank 23 buckets, aiding their 71-56 win.
Marcus Bell led the Warriors with 13 points but fouled out early into the fourth period.
Women start week strong, lose first game of season
Like the men, the women’s basketball team had success early in the week before dropping their first game.
The Warriors improved to 5-0, for the first time in 13 years, with a 76-61 thrashing of Sonoma State.  The team was lead by Lauren Godde, Briana Cotton,  Jasmine Washington and Riley Holladay who scored 16, 15, 12 and 10 points respectively.  At one point the Warriors were down by three, but an 11-2 outburst lead by Godde and her sister Erin allowed the Warriors to claim the lead and eventually the win.
The Warriors were unable to keep pace with the high-scoring Gators two nights later and ended up dropping their first game of the season 96-81.
San Francisco was led by Katie Batlin and Angela Van Sickle who amassed 27 and 24 points respectively.   The Gators’ forwards have dominated much of this early season.
The Gators started the game with a 17-4 run that the Warriors could not overcome. Godde led the Warriors with another strong performance, 19 points and 9 rebounds.  Cotton added another 16 points, 9 of which came from beyond the arch.
