Long Beach City College wins women’s basketball South Coast Conference title

On a night when Coaches vs. Cancer raised money for the American Cancer Society, the Long Beach City College Vikings women’s basketball team clinched the South Coast Conference title with a 58-50 win.

Cerritos won the men’s game 70-66 as both teams clinched a playoff spot.

In the women’s game, Cerritos led for the majority of the first half but was unable to sustain the lead as the Vikings were able to rally behind sophomore guard Shakeena Benton, who scored 11 of her team’s 30 points in the first half and finished with a game-high 22.

The Vikings took advantage of the 3-point line early, with three of Benton’s baskets coming from long distance that half. Freshman guard Abbey Goodsell sunk two 3’s as well, with the first bringing Long Beach within three and the next one tying the game at 17-17 with 8:25 left in the half.
