Three former H-DNL players continued to play a key role for the College of Marin women’s basketball team over the weekend.

Former McKinleyville Panther Victoria Claros scored a season-high 21 points to lead the way offensively, as the Mariners held on late for a much-needed 69-66 win over Merritt College on Friday night.

Former Fortuna Husky Isobel Crosswhite added a double-double in the win, scoring 16 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.

Claros enjoyed her best offensive outing of the season thanks in large part to some outstanding shooting from beyond the arc and nailed five of her eight attempts from 3-point range.

For the game, she shot 8 of 12 from the floor and also had four rebounds, an assist and a steal.

“She’s a good leader,” Marin head coach Emily Schaefer said of Claros earlier this season. “She’s vocal and also wants to do things the right way. And she’s one of our best shooters.

“She’s just one of those people who wants to win and has that winning mentality.”

Crosswhite, who is averaging a double-double this season, also had three steals and two assists to round out a strong all-around game.

The win ended a two-game losing skid for the Mariners, who improved to 12-8 on the season and evened their conference record at 4-4.

Another former Mack Panther, Kaylee Armstrong, is also enjoying a good winter playing for the Mariners and finished with four points in the win.

All three players have started the majority of games for the team this year.

The Mariners will look to make it two straight wins when they play at Yuba on Wednesday.

        … obviously Allan, the humor passed ya by like a cow sitting on the woke moon whilst Humboldt nihilistic types sleep effortlessly under a marine layer of pot-filled smog…
