Lady Oaks Claim Cal Pac Championship
February 27, 2013:
On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, Menlo College Women’s Basketball team defeated William Jessup 66-58 to claim the 2013 California Pacific Conference tournament Championship. The win capped off an undefeated Cal Pac campaign by giving the Lady Oaks their 14th consecutive victory.
"I feel like we played great defense the whole game," said Shannon Osborne, head women’s basketball coach. "They didn't hit any shots in the first and obviously they hit more in the second, shooting 50%, but I feel like our defense definitely carried us because we normally score more than 66 points."
With the win, Menlo will be making their second consecutive trip to the NAIA national tournament. They will travel to Sioux Falls, Iowa next week to participate in this year's version of the tournament. This is the fourth time in the past eight years Menlo has sent a team to the women's basketball national tournament.
