BAKERSFIELD, CA - The Bakersfield College Women's basketball team hosted the Cypress College Chargers on Friday evening in the Gil Bishop Sports Center. The Renegades struggled with the amount of bench players compared to the Chargers extra nine players to sub in and fell tired to CC, 88-48.
At the start of the game both teams struggled to find the net with 8 shots taken before the first two points were on the board, which came from Cypress. The Chargers took posession of the game with the Renegades trailing by 13 points in the first quarter.
