According to Robert Lewis, sports information and pasadena.edu sports writer, the women’s basketball team did something this past Wednesday night, Feb. 27th, that will put them in the record books for years to come.
With 10 minutes left in the game, freshmen guard Stella Ghazarian, took over the game and started hitting big shots for the Lancers.
Ghazarian scored the next 4 shots, hitting on two consecutive lay ups and two three pointers to cut the lead to 53-52 with seven minutes left in the game.
The teams exchanged buckets at the end of the game, until Tiffany Thompson scored on a shot to give PCC its first lead with two minutes remaining in the game.
With 30 seconds left in the game AVC was leading the Lancers 65-64 before Ghazarian hit a huge bucket for the Lancers which ended up being the game winning shot.
Peron remained optimistic during the game “I never lost hope. That’s something we’ve learned to do,” said Peron “The last thing that my team sees before they leave out of our team room everyday is the words ‘Don’t Ever Give Up’.”
The women’s basketball team overcame a 25 point deficit to the 18th ranked AVC on Wednesday, leaving the opposing team in complete shock.
The Lancers had a sluggish start, scoring only three points in the first 10 minutes of the game and seeing themselves down 28-3.
The team was out of sync for the first half of the game, playing with no competitive fire and energy, missing lay ups and wide open jump shots outside of the key.
The Lancers then cut the deficit down to 15, trailing Antelope Valley 37-22 at half time.
The team came out in the second half to play a little better, trailing AVC 52-42 with about 10 minutes to go in the game.
In the locker room after the game, coach Joe Peron congratulated his team on the exciting victory, “They were elated.” Peron said. “I congratulated them, pointed out some great things they did during the game and said to take tomorrow off.”
