The Bakersfield College women's basketball team fell 77-68 to Antelope Valley in a Western State Conference game Wednesday night at the Gil Bishop Sports Center.
The Renegades (9-12, 3-3 WSC) trailed 28-26 at halftime before Antelope Valley (9-12, 5-1 WSC) used a three-point barrage and rebounding advantage to blow the game open in the second half.
Leigha Moland paced BC with 17 points and 8 rebounds. AV's Mikeisha Moore led all scorers with 22 points.
The Marauders finished with eight three pointers, six of which came in the second half.
"We weren't rotating the right way in our 2-3 zone and (Moore) and (Amanda Thoma) drained those threes and just killed us," BC coach Paula Dahl said.
