Womens Basketball William Jessup University’s womens basketball team picked up its first win of the season with a three-point shot with less than one second remaining in the game at Pacific Union College, Saturday. Lady Warriors’ senior Cassie Davidson completed another outstanding game by hitting one beyond the arc as time ran out to defeat the Pioneers, 69-66. Davidson led William Jessup with 18 points. Taylor Borba had 17 points, Brittany Smith 14, and Maria Viola 11 in the victory. All four players are from California. The Warriors weren’t so fortunate at home as Simpson University earned a 73-51 decision last week. Davidson again led William Jessup with 16 points. Holy Names University will visit WJU this Saturday; tipoff is 5:30 p.m. Mens Basketball The Warriors split in basketball action last week falling to Simpson U., and a loss to Pacific Union. William Jessup went cold in Angwin, Saturday, shooting a miserable 22 percent from the floor. That allowed Pacific’s Pioneers to come away with a 53-45 win. Warriors’ senior Anthony Anderson led the club with 14 points, Jordan Wilson added 11 points and 13 rebounds to the team’s totals. Anderson smoked the nets with 22 points hitting 6-9 from three-point range to give WJU a 81-67 triumph. Teammate Marqus Crawford was right behind with 21 points, and Roseville’s Preston Branow had 15. Wilson, a Rocklin native, knocked down 11. The Warriors will host Holy Names, Saturday, game time 7:30 p.m. Both the men’s and women’s games will be carried on KAHI Radio 950 AM. Suits and Sneakers The coaches from William Jessup University will trade in their dress shoes for a pair of sneakers for their games Saturday in a Coaches vs. Cancer awareness weekend. Men’s and women’s head coaches Aaron Muhic and Guin Boggs will don sneakers to go with their game attire to demonstrate their support for the American Cancer Society. All fans who come to the game are also encouraged to wear sneakers in unified recognition of the ACS’s effort to combat the disease. Junior varsity coach Brad Rogers and all assistant coaches will also dress in accordance with the Suits and Sneakers theme. Other notable collegiate coaches joining in this effort are Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, Connecticut’s Jim Calhoun, Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim, and North Carolina’s Roy Williams.
