Anderson Named SCIAC Player of the Week

LOS ANGELESTriana Anderson was named the SCIAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week on Monday after leading Occidental to a 52-51 upset win over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on Saturday.

Anderson went 10 for 11 from the field for 22 points, including the last four points of the game and a game-winning layup with 1 second left that beat the defending SCIAC Champions. It was the first time since 2013 that Oxy had beaten CMS, which had gone 46-3 in SCIAC play coming into the game.

After the Oxy defense got a stop, Dru Ishibashi came up with the loose ball, passed it ahead to Tala Ismail, who found Anderson streaking to the hoop for the go-ahead score. 

Anderson, a junior from San Francisco, scored 16 points in the first half against the Athenas.

The Tigers travel to Hawaii for a pair of games, starting with Whitman on Dec. 19. Oxy plays North Central (Ill.)
