Wildcats wrap four game road trip in SoCal



Chico State Basketball closes out four game road swing 

at Dominguez Hills for a Saturday showdown


              The Chico State women's basketball is riding a four-game win streak but they will face their most difficult task of this 2022-23 season on Saturday afternoon when they take on the Dominguez Hills Toros in Carson.

              Dominguez is 19-0 including a 13-0 CCAA mark. They beat Chico a month at Acker Gym 72-50 without their best player Dawnyel Lair. Lair is the elder states-woman on a team that is filled with freshmen and sophomores. Lair averages better than 14 point and 8 boards a game.

              During Chico's four-game winning streak they have taken care of business against teams in the bottom half of the standings. They will have to play one of their best games of the season Saturday to extend their streak to five.

             The recent winning streak by Chico has seen them climb into a 3rd place tie with Cal State Los Angeles and Cal Poly Pomona. Two teams the Wildcats will play on the road over the next month. Chico and Dominguez will play Saturday afternoon at 1pm with the pregame at 12:35pm


             The Chico State men are looking for answers as they have seen their record slip to 8-10 overall and 6-7 in the CCAA. The Wildcats have lost four in a row and one glaring weakness continues to plague the Cats.

             Chico's inability to get stops continues to cost them. The staple for Chico State over the last decade has been consistent lock-down defense, but this year the Wildcats are giving up 75 points a game with opponents shooting 45 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. During the losing streak the Wildcats have struggled to get stops at the pivotal points in the game. 

             Despite the slide if the season ended today the Wildcats would be in the playoff mix. Chico is in a tie for sixth in the CCAA with Stanislaus State with the top six getting into the conference tournament in March. Considering this team's youth and inexperience, a trip to the CCAA Tournament would be a nice accomplishment for a team with so many new and young faces. Chico closes out this road trip with a 3pm match-up against Dominguez Hills. You can hear it exclusively on KpaySports 1290 and 102.9 FM.

     The Chico State men's basketball clamped down in the 2nd half against Cal Poly Pomona and cruised to an 81-64 win over the Broncos last night.

     The Chico State women were controlling their game against Pomona....

until they weren't.

2nd and 3rd quarters and that allowed Pomona to come back from

16 points down....going on an 18-0 run. Chico falls 68-63.

Myli Martinez led Chico with 17 points and 7 rebounds.

     The Wildcat women are now 9-6 overall and 5-4 in the CCAA. They host

      Wild Card weekend in the NFL is here as the opening round of the playoffs officially kicks off on Saturday.  The Seahawks travel to San Francisco for an NFC West showdown with the 49ers.  The Chargers are also on the road playing the Jaguars for the night game.  LA quarterback Justin Herbert and Jacksonville signal caller Trevor Lawrence are both making their playoff debuts. 

     On Sunday, the Dolphins head to Orchard Park to square off against the AFC East rival Buffalo Bulls.  Meanwhile, the Giants travel to Minnesota to play the Vikings later in the day.  The nightcap features an AFC North clash between the Bengals and Ravens in Cincinnati.  Baltimore is expected to start Tyler Huntley at quarterback as Lamar Jackson sits out due to a knee injury. 

     The wild weekend concludes Monday night when the Cowboys head to Tampa for a marquee matchup with the Buccaneers.  Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady will begin his quest for an eighth Super Bowl ring.


(Owings Mills, MD)  --  The Ravens are going to be without Lamar Jackson for the start of the playoffs.  Baltimore's starting quarterback tweeted Thursday night that he has "suffered a PCL Grade Two sprain, on the borderline of a strain three" and will not be playing in Sunday night's Wild Card game at the Cincinnati Bengals.  The Ravens initially described his return as "week to week," but hasn't suited up for the last 39 days.  With Jackson out, the Ravens will start either Tyler Huntley or Anthony Brown.  Huntley, who has tendinitis in his right shoulder, resumed throwing at Thursday's practice.


(Costa Mesa, CA)  --  The Chargers might be missing one of their top wide outs for their Wild Card game against the Jaguars.  Wide receiver Mike Williams is officially questionable to play on Saturday night as he deals with a back contusion.  Williams suffered the injury in Los Angeles' Week 18 loss to the Broncos.  The 28-year-old already missed four games during the regular season with a high ankle sprain.  The Chargers visit Jacksonville on Saturday in their first playoff game since the 2018 season. 


(Undated)  --  LeBron James is still leading the field in the latest NBA All-Star voting update.  James has received the most votes with over 4.8-million and is on pace to match Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record 19 career All-Star appearances.  Kevin Durant is still second with 4.5-million votes and leads all Eastern Conference players.  James is trailed by Steph Curry, Luka Doncic [[ DON-chitch ]], Nikola Jokic [[ yo-kitch ]] and Anthony Davis in the Western Conference.  Just behind Durant in the East are Giannis Antetokounmpo [[ ah-dedo-KOON-bo ]], Jayson Tatum, Joel Embiid and Kyrie Irving.


(Undated)  --  Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown is set to miss a week or two with a right adductor strain.  Brown is coming off a 41-point performance against the Pelicans on Wednesday night.  The 26-year-old star told reporters following the game that he had tweaked his groin and would have it evaluated.  Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla said that he is "not sure what the timeline is" and that the team would know more in the coming days.  Brown is averaging a career-high 27.2 points per game this season for the first-place Celtics.


(Undated)  --  Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton is sidelined for the next two weeks with a pair of injuries.  The 22-year-old has been diagnosed with a left elbow sprain and mild left knee bone contusion that he sustained in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.  Haliburton underwent an MRI on Thursday that the team is awaiting additional opinions on.  He is currently leading the NBA with 10.2 assists per game.  Haliburton is also averaging a career-high 20.2 points per game with Indiana this season.  The Pacers are currently 23-and-19.


(Boston, MA)  --  The Kraken handed Boston its first regulation home loss of the season after a 3-0 victory over the Bruins.  Brandon Tanev opened the scoring in the first period while Eeli Tolvanen netted a goal with about 40 seconds left in the second.  Jaden Schwartz buried an empty netter to secure the two points for Seattle.  Martin Jones stopped 27 shots to earn the shutout victory for the Kraken, who have won seven straight games.  Seattle improved to 25-12-and-4 and are third in the Pacific with 52 points.  Linus Ullmark made 28 saves for the B's, who are now 19-1-and-3 on the season at home.  The Bruins still lead the NHL with 68 points.


(Honolulu, HI)  --  Three golfers are tied atop the leaderboard after play was suspended during the first round of the Sony Open in Honolulu.  Chris Kirk, Jordan Spieth and Taylor Montgomery all finished the opening round six under par.  Several other players are tied for fourth place after shooting five under par.  Hideki Matsuyama appears to still be in contention to defend his title.  Matsuyama finished round one tied for 41st at two under par.
