ECS staff report

ALCALA PARK – Following a four-week hiatus due to coronavirus cancellations, San Diego Christian College expectedly lost to a Division I opponent Friday (Dec. 11), but the Hawks’ showing still pleased women’s basketball coach Shawn Chaffin in a 98-56 setback to host University of San Diego at Jenny Craig Pavilion.

“We saw a lot of positives this afternoon,” Chaffin noted. “Although it was our first loss of the seasons, we got a lot better – our future looks great.”

A trio of underclassmen led the way for SDCC (3-1 overall).

Freshman shooting guard Izzy Feller paced the Hawks with 18 points, while junior point guard Karen Hoque chipped in with 15 points, Meanwhile, Maddy Zugna, a frosh post player in her season debut, added 12 points and blocked four shots by the host Toreros (2-1).

USD  grabbed a 28-10 first-quarter lead and never trailed from there, as six players scored in double figures.
