Cal Poly Pomona women win home opener

The Cal Poly Pomona women’s basketball team made its home debut on Sunday and had no trouble cruising past Dominican 80-55 at Kellogg Gymnasium.

It was really never a game. The visitors led 14-10 nine minutes in but the Boncos dominated after that. The Penguins has 29 turnovers. You’re not going to win many games when you can’t handle the ball.

The star was senior forward La’Kenya Simon-West who netted a career-high 22 points with six rebounds, and three steals. Simon-West came off the bench last year and was used primarily as a three-point specialist.

Reyana Colson and Megan Ford added 16 points each. Colson had hre normal solid all-around game with five rebounds, six assists and five steals.

The Dominican team also included a local in Don Lugo graduate Kayla Valentine, a freshman guard, who had six points.

    Thanks Michelle for the ‘one-liner” on Kayla! Believe me, we wanted her to go to Cal Poly Pomona! But Dominican aong with a couple others was a bit more aggressive with recruiting her. 909-438-0681 is my cell. Facebook/Kids WORLDWYD.
