Thursday, December 29, 2005 - GSAC Challenge
Lubbock Christian 80, FPU 59
(At The Master's College, Santa Clarita)

Box score

Santa Clarita - The Fresno Pacific University Sunbirds extended their Christmas break 20 minutes longer than they wanted to and it cost them.

The Sunbirds gave up 52 first-half points and eventually lost 80-59 to Lubbock Christian in the first round of the GSAC Challenge in Santa Clarita.

"We were slow on our defensive rotations in the first half," said FPU head coach Jim Hall. "We gave them some open looks and they made us pay. We did a much better job in the second half. Hopefully (the second half) that is an indicator of how we will play tomorrow."

Senior Denise Fast led FPU, now 4-6 on the season, with 15 points.

Ashley Hunter led all players with 16 points for the Chaparrals. Jordan Hampton added 14 points for the winners, while Sierra Wilcox chipped in with 11.

FPU faces Cedarville of Ohio tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. The Yellow Jackets, ranked No.2 in the current NAIA Division II poll, are 10-3 on the season.
