Women's Basketball Beats LA Valley on Alyssa Gonzalez Buzzer Beater

Bakersfield, CA – The Renegade Women's Basketball team hosted LA Valley College at the Gil Bishop Sports Center in conference play on Wednesday night and came away with huge buzzer beating win, 43-40.

The contest was a low-scoring defensive game in the first half with many turnovers committed by both sides. By the break, the Monarchs held the lead, 22-13.

The first points of the second half didn't come until three minutes into the half. The Renegades kept pace with the Monarchs to find themselves down by only five, 28-23 at the end of the third quarter.
