Seattle University opened the second half with an 8-0 run against Cal State Bakersfield’s women’s basketball to take control of the game and post a 63-52 victory Saturday in Western Athletic Conference play.
The Roadrunners held a 26-24 halftime lead against visiting Seattle, but Bakersfield struggled at the free throw line, missing nine crucial free throws. Alexis Montgomery scored 17 points for Seattle, which improved to 9-2 in WAC play. Aja Williams led CSUB with 14 points, while Erika Williams scored 12 points.
“We didn’t come out and execute the way were supposed to in the third quarter,” said CSUB head coach Greg McCall on gorunners.com. “We didn’t play very good basketball in the entire second half.”
The loss drops Bakersfield to 7-4 in the WAC and they hit the road on Thursday at University of Missouri, Kansas City for a conference game.
