The Cal Poly Pomona women’s basketball team left little doubt, rolling past Alaska-Anchorage 67-47 in the NCAA West Regional semifinal at Kellogg Gymnasium.
Now its on to Monday’s championship game against Grand Canyon, which was equally impressive in beating Cal State Monterey Bay 55-35.
The Broncos looked poised and ready. They’re peaking at the right time.
They lost to the same team a year ago in the quarterfinal 69-50. So it was a sweet victory for the Broncos, most of whom were part of that game.
The Broncos-Antelopes showdown on Monday will pit the top two scorers in the country as Grand Canyon’s Samantha Murphy averaged 25 points and Reyana Colson averaged 21. Colson got West region player of the year, probably because the Broncos play in a far tougher conference. But watching those two players will be worth the price of admission.
