The Bakersfield College Women's Basketball team (14-9, 3-2) hit the century mark for the second time this season with a 100-41 win over LA Pierce (2-18, 1-4) Saturday in the Gil Bishop Sports Center, but Coach Paula Dahl wasn't excited with the scoring outburst as much as she was with other accomplishments hidden beneath the offensive outburst.
"Everybody scored, but it's not just about points. I'd challenged the team to fill their stat lines, but by playing team basketball," Dahl said.
The team accepted the challenge with vigor, starting with the player who scored the most points. Kennedy Nielsen led all scorers with 21 points, but more remarkable was her nine assists against no turnovers.
Angie Kroeger continued to produce without the flash, pulling down ten rebounds, seven steals, and a blocked shot also without surrendering a single turnover.
"Its just all about team basketball, and they proved that with their performance. I gave one of our (custom women's basketball) hats to Angie, because when I tallied the stats, she had the most points in our (internal) contest," Dahl said.
And of course, on a night when her team hit the century mark, points were not part of the inside competition.
The Renegades travel to Santa Monica (17-8, 5-0) on February 8th for a 7p game where they hope to avenge their disappointing 78-73 home loss to the Corsairs just over two weeks ago.
