Jacks Pass

Men’s Basketball

Humboldt State men’s basketball team saw its three-game winning streak snapped this past weekend as they lost 88-67 to UC San Diego Saturday Night.

Sophomore Nikhil Lizotte led the Jacks in scoring. He scored 19 points. Hitting four 3-pointers. Currently sitting in the California Collegiate Athletic Association, the Jacks would earn a spot in the conference playoffs if the season ended today. Home games against two of the CCAA’s top three programs await the Green and Gold. Sonoma State visits Lumberjack Arena Thursday, and HSU hosts San Francisco State for Senior Day Saturday. Fans are encouraged to wear black for Thursday’s Black Out Night promotion. Both games tip off at 7:30 p.m.

Women’s Basketball

Humboldt State women’s basketball fell to UC San Diego, 64-55 on Saturday in La Jolla. The Lumberjacks traded baskets with the Tritons early, and the teams were tied 15-15 at the end of the first quarter. San Diego closed the first half on a 10-2 run, and had a 31-24 lead at the break. The Tritons took advantage of their free-throw opportunities, and they converted 13-of-15 first half attempts

Tyra Turner scored 12 of her team-high 15 points in the second half, but it wasn’t enough for the Green and Gold. The Tritons led by 10 points through three quarters and by as many as 15 points with 5:11 left in regulation.

The Tritons shot 39.1 percent from the field and 50 percent from outside the arc. Dalayna Sampton was San Diego’s top performer with 19 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks. She was 7-of-9 shooting and went 5-of-5 at the free-throw line.

Three Jacks scored in double figures, and Catharine Rees and Kindall Murie chipped in 10 points apiece.  Turner dished out a team-best six assists.
