Solano tops Los Medanos, captures third straight BVC title

Veronica Morris scored 17 points to lead the Solano women’s basketball team to a 68-43 win over Los Medanos in Pittsburg on Friday to close out the Falcons’ regular season.

With the win, Solano tied Laney of Oakland for the conference title. It’s Solano’s third straight conference crown, fourth in the last five years and ninth in program history.

“Obviously, this is one of our goals – to win the conference title,” said Coach Matt Borchert. “These ladies showed they can handle a lot of adversity by bouncing back from that loss to Laney to close out the season and win a share of the title.”

Crystal Lee added 13 points, Ivy Jones had 11 and Jessica Woods added 10 for Solano, which improved to 23-5 and 15-1 in conference. The 23 wins ties for the most wins in the Matt Borchert-era and the 15 BVC wins are the most conference wins in school history.

Against Los Medanos, Solano only led 27-21 at half. The Falcons opened the second half with a 24-8 run and took a 51-29 lead with seven minutes remaining in the contest. Solano shot 66 percent from the field in the second half.

Ivy added three rebounds, six assists and four steals against LMC while Jessica had four rebounds and three blocked shots. Goli Tavassoli chipped in six points, five assists and four steals.

Solano will likely host a NorCal playoff game next Friday or Saturday. The playoff seedings will be announced on Monday.
