Stanislaus picks up road win

CARSON -- Lysandra Williams scored 22 points and Cal State Stanislaus nailed late free throws in picking up its first road win this season, 54-50 over Cal State Dominguez Hills on Saturday.

The Warriors (5-11, 3-7 California Collegiate Athletic Association) snapped a five-game skid.

Christin Gowan's free throws with about a minute left broke the tie and Aleta Stamps nailed two more with four ticks left.

The Toros, picked in the preseason to win the CCAA, dropped to 9-8 overall and 3-7 in league. They were held scoreless after Alana Bailey's layup gave them a 50-47 lead with 3:51 remaining.

Williams was 7-for-8 from the field and 7-for-10 from the line -- two of those three throws put Stanislaus up by 11 eight minutes into the second half. Katie Busi had eight points and six rebounds with three assists.
