Women's Basketball Continues to Roll

 Cypress routs Sacramento City in opening game of Merced Tourney.

The Chargers are 3-1 to start the season.
Merced, Calif. - Cypress College women's basketball cruised to an easy 55-34 victory over Sacramento City in the opening game of the Merced Tournament.

Freshman Tera Salhus and sophomore Jonell Bowers led a balanced Chargers (3-1) offense with eight points apiece. Freshman point guard Sam Soria added seven points, while fellow frosh Sloan Turner tacked on six points and four blocked shots.

The Chargers imposed their will from begining to end in this matchup. With a smothering defensive effort, Cypress went into halftime leading 30-20.

After the break, the Chargers got even tougher on defense by only allowing 14 points the rest of the game.

Cypress will take on San Joaquin Delta in the semi-final round of the Merced Tourney at 7 p.m. on Friday. The last time a Cypress team played Delta, the Chargers walked away with a softball state championship.
