The CSU Stanislaus Men’s and Women’s basketball teams took on Cal State Monterey Bay basketball team’s last week for the Warrior’s homecoming matchup.

Women’s Game:
The women’s game was filled with ups and downs for Warrior basketball. Cal State Monterey Bay took an early 21-10 lead in the first quarter and had to fight to keep the lead against Stan state. The Otters went 9 of 13 from the field and were 0 for 1 from deep. The Warriors were 5 of 16 from the the field and went 0 for 5 from the three point line.
In the 2nd quarter the Warriors outscored the Otters 18-15 to begin closing the 10 point lead held by the Otters. The action packed 2nd quarter saw the Warriors go 6 for 15 in the paint and less than 50% from the free throw line. Monterey went 4 for 12 in the field and had a 70% free throw percentage. Otters were leading 36-28 at the half.
The 3rd quarter saw the Warriors offense take their foot off the gas, only making 3 out of 15 attempts on the basket, but saw improvement in their free throws as they made 5 out of 6 attempts. The Otters pressed forward going 8 of 17 from the field and 33% from beyond the arc keeping them in the lead.
In the 4th quarter the Warriors had a fire lit under them as they went 9 of 19 in the paint and 3 of 8 form deep out scoring the Otters 22-16 . The Otters consistency in previous quarters was enough to keep them in the lead as the Warriors would fall to them in a 70-62 defeat. 
Makayla Rose (freshman, Undeclared) led the Warriors in scoring and assists with an 18 point performance with 33% of her points coming from success on the free throw line. 

Men’s game:
The 1st period saw the Otters take a commanding 42-28 lead over the Warriors. It seemed that no shots would fall for the Warriors as they went 9 of 34 from the field and 3 of 12 from deep. It was seemingly the opposite for the Otters as they put on a show going 16 of 32 in the paint and 46% from deep.
The 2nd period was an improvement for the Warriors as they were over 50% from the field and went 6 of 11 from the free throw line creating a 38 point performance to end the 2nd period. The Otters continued their momentum from the previous period with a near repeat performance as they went 14 of 27 from the field, 44% from deep, and 8 of 13 from the line to create another 40 point period. 
The Warriors were led in scoring by Marlon Short (sophomore, Liberal Studies) who had 24 points on the night. Short was 50% from deep and was 70% from the free throw line.
