Solano ends losing skid with rout of Yuba

The Solano women’s basketball team opened Bay Valley Conference play strong on Wednesday night with a 79-56 win over Yuba College in Fairfield. In doing so, Solano brought its five-game losing streak to a halt. The Falcons closed out the Gervasoni tournament last Friday with a loss to Merced College.

Playing in just their third home game of the season, the Falcons jumped out to an 11-2 lead and never relented in building a 10-point halftime lead. Solid shooting from all 10 players kept the momentum going in the second half and Solano’s lead grew to 30, 78-48, late in the second half.

Freshman point guard Taylor Hamilton continued her impressive play, scoring a season-high 27 points. Fellow classmate Ariel Clay added 13 points. Lucy Santos added eight points and four more players finished with six each.

“We did some things differently than we had in our previous games and the team responded well,” said Coach Matt Borchert. “Our defense caused Yuba some problems and we had some people step up on offense tonight. We shot the ball confidently tonight so hopefully that continues.”

The Falcons take on defending BVC champions Laney College on Friday in Oakland at 6 p.m.
