As the No. 6 seed, Ohlone College Renegades women's basketball team, under head coach Julia Allender, hosted No. 11 seed Butte College of Oroville in the California Community College Athletic Association north regional second round tournament on Saturday, Feb. 26.

First half saw Ohlone wanting to drive the basket for its points while Butte liked to throw up the 3-point shot. However, both baskets appeared to have lids on them and the hosts were the more aggressive on defense. This led to the Renegades sending Butte to the free throw line where the visitors went 6-6 in the first half taking them to a 25-21 half time lead.

In the second half Ohlone continued to drive the ball and they scored the first eight points to take an early second half lead, 29-25. Now it was Butte's turn to start finding the range as they soon tied the game at 29-29 and their 3-point shots began to fall. As the teams traded leads over the second half, Ohlone found itself in trouble in the last minute of the game when they had not fouled enough.

With less than a minute to play, Butte had the ball out of bounds with a three-point lead. It took four times for Butte to inbound the ball with Ohlone fouling before sending Butte to the free throw line. When Ohlone finally did get the ball it was too late as the underdogs would sink enough foul shots to earn a 57-54 victory.
