The Bakersfield College Women's Basketball Team (2-5) picked up their second straight win, and opened the Santa Ana Tournament with a 75-60 victory over San Bernardino Thursday night.
Angie Kroeger delivered 23 points in just 21 minutes off the bench to give BC all it needed against a scrappy San Berdoo squad that took a two point lead into halftime, only to see BC explode in the second half.
"They had a player who scored 16 in the first half," Coach Paula Dahl said, "But then we had women like Kennedy Nielsen step up and play serious defense in the second half."
But Dahl wasn't coy about saying who made a huge difference Thursday night.
"Without Angie Kroeger, well...there's a huge hole in our game. Angie stepped up and made things happen, and that's what a team does. It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a team to pick up a win."
BC will play Merced at 8pm Friday night on day two of the Santa Ana Tournament.
