The College of the Redwoods women’s basketball team bounced back from an opening-day loss at the Sierra College tournament to beat Yuba 71-47 on Friday.
The win was the first of the season for the Corsairs, who improved to 1-4 and finally got the breakthrough after a few close early-season losses.
“Overall, we’re starting to get more comfortable with each other on the court and learning from every game,” head coach Jain Tuey said.
Team defense also played a role in the win, as Tuey and her players switched some things up.
“We picked it up defensively and added full court pressure today, which led to more scoring opportunities,” the coach said.
The Corsairs will try to make it two straight wins when they take on Fresno in their final tournament game on Saturday.
The CR women, who dropped their first tournament game to Chabot on Thursday, will play their home opener against Marin on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
