Game of the Week


1/23: College Basketball: William Jessup at Westmont So far this season, it’s been “home sweep home” for the Westmont Warriors. Their women’s and men’s basketball teams are a combined 16-0 on their home floor. To keep their record clean, they’ll have to hold off the upset-minded Warriors from William Jessup University in Saturday’s Golden State Athletic Conference double-header. Coach Kirsten Moore’s women are ranked No. 1 in the NAIA with a 15-2 overall record. They have done it with defense, limiting opponents to a .338 field-goal percentage. Senior forward Lauren Sende swept the boards (16 rebounds) in their recent 60-51 victory over Arizona Christian. For the No. 16–ranked Warrior men, the story has been torrid shooting. They sank 11 of 21 three-point attempts in an 85-75 victory over No. 7 Arizona Christian. Hitting more than half their long-distance shots all season are junior guards Hayden Anderson (26-46, .565) and Cory Blau (41-74, .554), and sophomore Jerry Karczewski (37-69, .536). William Jessup is coming off one of its best games since joining the GSAC, a 65-59 upset of No. 10 Biola. Women: 5:30pm. Men: 7:30pm. Murchison Gym, Westmont College, 955 La Paz Rd. Free-$6. Call 565-6010.
