American River College was defeated 97-61 by the Diablo Valley College women’s basketball team Tuesday Feb. 5, continuing their nearly undefeated season. American River College of Northern Sacramento County came into the game with a record of 9-12 overall.

DVC had a strong performance against ARC, as they finished the game shooting 45.3 percent from the field, but shot a commanding 50 percent from the 3-point line. The majority of their points came from 3 of the 5 starters Leilani Moncrease, Jahnay Anderson and Zahria Hendrix, who all managed to outscore the whole ARC team themselves at 69-61.

Led by an exemplary game from Hendrix who was all over the box score, she managed to finish with 25 points shooting 8-of-10 from behind the arc and 8-of-13 from the field, accompanied by 8 rebounds, 4 assists 3 steals and a block.

Daisha Abdelkader who’s a starter as well, had 12 of the teams 27 assists and 4 steals. Moncrease also had a standout game on defense leading the team in rebounds with 16 total, and clinched the second most points on the team at 23 overall.
