Fremont, Calif. - Energy and excitement electrified across gymnasiums at Ohlone and Chabot colleges as the teams made movements toward the post-season mayhem known as March Madness.
Ohlone (19-10, 12-0) who was playing without All-Conference and honorable mention state nominee guard, Cassie Bates, showed up by beating the visiting College of the Siskiyous, 75-65.
"Our bench is deeper than theirs," said Ohlone Coach Laura Elliot. "We have a greater amount of quality players."
Depth is exactly what the Renegades used to contain Siskiyous All-Conference guard Chrissy Watts. Watts had nearly averaged 20 points per game, but Ohlone diffused her, while building a 45-25 halftime lead.
Siskiyous would trim the Ohlone lead to 66-59 at the 5:10 mark of the second half behind three 3-pointers from Watts. But Watts? effort was a little too late as Ohlone emerged victorious and advanced to the second round against Delta College on Friday, March 6, at 7 p.m. in Stockton.
