The Cal State East Bay women’s basketball team is in the midst of a great season. With just seven regular season games remaining, the Pioneers are 17-4 overall and third place in the California Collegiate Athletic Association Conference at 11-2.

This comes on the heels of last year’s 20-11 season where they lost in the conference championship game to Cal State Dominguez Hills.

A major factor in the success for CSUEB has been senior forward Tori Breshers. During a 60-39 win over CSU San Marcos last week, she became the school’s all-time leading scorer with 1,211 points passing the former leader Antoinette Goode who held the record since 1988 with 1,210 points. Breshers is also a major reason CSUEB ranks first in the conference in scoring margin and scoring defense as well as third in scoring offense.

“Tori is a senior and her experience in the league and an understanding of what our expectations are of her allow her to go out and just play within the system,” CSUEB Head Coach Suzy Barcomb said. “She is an outstanding athlete, with great court speed and quickness.”

On Feb. 2 Breshers earned her third CCAA Player of the Week award this season, the most for any player. She is fifth in the CCAA in scoring, tenth in rebounding, second in field goal percentage, sixth in blocks and fifth in steals. Breshers is also number one on CSUEB’s all-time blocks list with 143.

Breshers and the Pioneers have seven games left before the CCAA tournament begins on Mar. 1. The next game for CSUEB is tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Chico State (9-9 overall, 4-8 conference).
