COSTA MESA — The Orange Coast College women's basketball team has had its fill of College of Canyons. A 79-65 loss to the Cougars in the semifinal of the Coast Christmas Classic on Tuesday was the second time this year the Cougars have defeated the Pirates. Freshman Courtney Ford scored a game-high 28 points on 11-for-20 shooting for the Pirates. The Pirates will play Southwestern in the third-place game at 4 p.m. today at Orange Coast. The fact Orange Coast went from losing by six to the Cougars Nov. 11 at the Mount San Antonio College Tournament to the 14-point margin Tuesday was not the type of change Pirates Coach Mike Thornton said he had in mind.
