The Shoreline Community College Women’s Basketball Team hopes to continue the offensive production they showed in their opening night victory over Northwest Indian College on Tuesday, 100-51, when they face Portland Community College on Saturday in the SCC Gym at 2:00pm.

Third year head coach James Johnson has seen the SCC squad improve over the past two seasons with 7 wins and then 10 wins, but hopes this is the season that SCC makes its first appearance in the NWAACC Basketball Championship in over 6 years. The top four teams in each region goes to the basketball championship in Richland, WA each year.

The Dolphins had 4 freshmen score in double figures on Tuesday with Emily Wilbur from Broadside High School in Townsend, MT leading the way with 17 points. Bianca Benavides (Eisenhower HS, Yakima, WA) added 12 and Maile Keanu (South Kitsap, Port Orchard, WA) and Chelsea Padgett (Spanaway Lake HS, Spanaway, WA) had 10 each. Sophomore returner Caitlin Roussopolos had 16 while North Seattle CC transfer Deja Davis scored 14.

The SCC bench outscored Northwest Indian 44-0 in the game and showed depth that the Lady Dolphins have lacked in recent years. But the SCC team committed 23 fouls in the game and had one player foul out and two others with 4 fouls when the game ended showing a need for more discipline on defense.
