AT HOME AGAIN

The Foothill Owls women’s basketball team have won two out of their three games at home. They’ll have their work cut out for them if they want to keep their success alive during a three-game home stand that tips off tomorrow at Los Altos. The game will be the first of this season’s two match-ups between the Owls and Rocky T. Rams. Tip off is set for 7:00 p.m. Wednesday January 24, and fans can catch the game at the main gymnasium.

LAST TIME OUT

The Foothill women’s basketball team fell short to their conference rivals, the Mission Saints, 82-77 in overtime in the Owls’ last away game.

MATCH-UP AT A GLANCE

LAST GAME’S STARTERS

OWLS: Brianna Reynolds, Erica Ginn, Carissa Mills, Hannah Peterson, and Ashleen Quirke

ROCKY T. RAMS: Donatella Macleod, Christa Arroyo, Jennifer Rosales, Sadie Allen, and Jessica Curto

 

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES

The Owls performed well in their previous two home games, scoring 91 and 93 respectively, before losing to the Mission Saints on the road. As inspiring as the 90+ offensive performances were, the Owls’ shift from a high octane offense to less than optimal performance in an instant wasn’t ideal. Granted, the team was coming off of two impressive home games, and their underwhelming performance against the Rams was sandwiched between two home stands. The expectation of an easy win may have been a factor, but the Owls failed to seal the deal early on. Much like the Owls were, the Rocky T. Rams are coming off a dominating win, in their case against the Hartnell Panthers, who they beat by 36 points. If either side takes a large lead tomorrow, don’t expect the other to go quietly — they both know just how quickly a game can turn on its head based on recent experience.

 

TEAM LEADERS


GAVILAN SCOUTING REPORT

Despite the Rams’ recent win, they are currently in the midst of the worst stretch of their season. Prior to their 36 point defeat of the Hartnell Panthers, Gavilan lost their previous two games by 5 points or fewer. They have only won four out of their last ten games, and enter tomorrow’s game against the Owls with a record of 7-11, sitting fifth in the Coast-South conference. For this team, both offense and defense have been a problem. Their offense has scored more than 80 points just once in the season, and their defense has failed to keep up with opponents’ offenses. If they are unable to keep up and bring the heat against a team that has fortified both their offensive and defensive play, the Rams could see their record worsen to a measly 7-12.
