The women’s basketball team were unable to stave off the Vikings on Friday due to due to lack of players.

Out of the gate, the Hawks were able to go toe-to-toe against Diablo Valley College, but Hawks guard Yazmine Trevizo went down from a previous injury.

Trevizo had to be carried off as she cannot walk on her own.

“We just don’t have the bodies to combat a team that athletic,” Hawks Head Coach Coral Sage said. “We’re getting two girls in double figures and that’s it. There is only so much you can do with what you have.”

Not only was this a big blow to the Hawks’ rotation, it also gave the green light to the visitors.

The Vikings were able to dictate the pace of the game seemingly at will and the Hawks weren’t able to keep up.

The Vikings were able to blow by Hawks’ defenders like a hot knife through butter.

Using their athleticism, DVC was able to split any help defense that came their way and grabbed more boards than the Hawks.

“[On Defense], we needed to communicate more,” Hawks shooting guard Trina Shaner said. “We just didn’t know where people are and I think that’s something we can improve on.”

The Hawks also lost far too many offensive possessions through turnovers. The Vikings were able to get away with 17 steals as opposed to the Hawks’ seven.

The Vikings were also getting plenty of high percentage shots from behind the three-point line.

They moved the ball fast and with purpose, being able to take wide open corner threes. The Hawks simply couldn’t close out on the Vikings’ perimeter shooters as they focused on protecting the paint this game.

Granted that the Vikings only made nine of their 26 attempts, this was still not a good showing for the Hawks.

“We did a lot of individual plays,” Hawks center/forward Quoquese Jackson said. “If we played as a team it would have been more productive.”

However, it wasn’t all bad news for the Hawks. They were able to retaliate by getting points from the foul line, however, it was not enough.

“I’m just glad we got this one out of the way,” Sage said.
