UCI has five scorers in double figures to earn fifth straight win and stay unbeaten in January.

January 18, 2012|By Barry Faulkner

"Our balance tonight was tremendous," Goodenbour said. "We had five [score] in double figures and everybody rebounded [producing a 44-39 edge]. And Kassandra just keeps leading and playing with a lot of confidence. She has been our go-to person in this streak. I think her confidence gives other players more confidence. "

McCalister said a recent outbreak of injuries [junior Jazmyne White is believed to have torn her ACL in a Jan. 5 win over Pacific, sophomore Kelly Meggs sustained a concussion in practice Tuesday and sophomore Pernilla Hanson sprained both ankles on the same play at UC Santa Barbara on Saturday] hasn't been enough to derail the recent winning streak.

"We're just starting to click together," McCalister said.

Goodenbour said she did not want to over-analyze her team's turnaround.

"It's fun," Goodenbour said. "Kids are having fun and I'm having fun coaching this group. I don't know if we'll keep winning games or not but, for now, I'm going to stay in the moment and enjoy it."
