Local report: Shannon scores 20 as Roadrunner women win easily

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

Sophomore guard Alyssa Shannon scored her Cal State Bakersfield career-high 20 points Monday night as the Roadrunners coasted to a 81-49 win over Fresno Pacific University in the Icardo Center.

CSUB (5-6) never trailed. The Roadrunners scored the game's first nine points and led 41-20 at halftime. The lead never dropped below 19 in the second half.

Brittany Sims had 12 points and Batabe Zempare and Brooklynn Hinkens added 11 points each for CSUB. Zempare had a game-high 12 rebounds.

Charde Stevens had 11 points for the Sunbirds. No other Fresno Pacific player scored more than six points.

CSUB has its final pre-conference game Thursday at Cal State Northridge.

Fresno Pacific, which has started its transition to NCAA Div. II status, is 2-8. The Sunbirds considered this game an exhibition, which doesn't count on its record. It was a regular-season game with all statistics counting for CSUB.
