Down by 12 points at halftime at Lumberjack Arena, HSU’s Lady Jacks made a second half comeback in their home game against Cal State East Bay on Feb. 1.

HSU junior Jovanah Arrington scored a three-pointer in overtime to win the game, putting the Jacks up 76-73.

“I just shot my same shot that I shoot every time,” Arrington said. “I knew the clock was going down so I had to get it up.”

East Bay dominated the first few minutes of the game with a 12-3 lead before the Jacks came back determined to put more points on the board. With enough drive, the Jacks regained their confidence to take more shots, until they fell back down at halftime with a score of 24-12.

“We have certain things that we try to do defensively as far as taking our opponents out of their strengths, so to speak,” HSU head coach Michelle Bento-Jackson said. “I thought we did a very poor job of that in the first half.”

With another gain of confidence after their halftime talk, the Jacks outscored the East Bay Pioneers in both the third and fourth quarters. The team nailed 15 free throws in the second half, and ended the game in a 69-69 tie, resulting in the first period of overtime.

HSU sophomore Tyla Turner led the Jacks with a total of 23 points, HSU junior Kindall Murie landed 13 points and Arrington helped with seven rebounds.

“We got a lot of contribution tonight from different players,” Bento-Jackson said. “I thought we stayed aggressive in transition.”

The Jacks walk away with an overall record of 12-9 and a conference record of 11-5.
