Coming off a come-from-behind win over one of the top programs in Southern California, the Moorpark College women's basketball team welcomes a few more traditional powers to Raider Pavilion tonight for its annual eight-team tournament.
Friday's quarterfinals are Citrus-Santa Barbara at 2 p.m., No. 8 Antelope Valley-Imperial Valley at 4 p.m., Santa Ana-Los Angeles Valley at 6 p.m. and Laney at Moorpark at 8 p.m.
"We have a really good turnout this year for our tournament," said Moorpark coach Lindsay Goldblatt We're excited to host and see some pretty good games."
The Raiders (4-4) shocked Canyons, 60-59, Friday on freshman Nanice Kollee buzzer-beating transition bucket.
"It's one of our better wins," said Goldblatt. "It was nice to come out on top like that."
Kollee, a 5-foot-8 Thousand Oaks High product, nearly doubled her career-scoring figure with a 20-point game, her first double-digit game of the season.
Moorpark is in need of an injection of scoring in the first half, when it has been limited to nine, 13 and 16 points in three of the past four games.
"We've been scoring three times as many points in the second half (as the first half)," said Goldblatt. "If we could put together a full game, we could be pretty good."
Moorpark trailed Canyons 29-16 at the half before responded after the intermission.
