CSUSM Ladies Upsets Top-seeded Gannon, Advances To Final Four

Cal State San Marcos women’s basketball did the unthinkable on Monday evening, defeating top-seeded Gannon University in the Division II NCAA Tournament Elite Eight and punching its ticket to the Final Four.

The historic win took an overtime period, overcoming the loss of three key players — one to injury, two to fouls — and an unusually poor three-point shooting performance to knock off NCAA DII Player of the Year Samantha Pirosko and the 35-win Golden Knights.

At the final whistle, San Marcos held court, 85-80.

“Gannon is tough,” said CSUSM head coach Renee Jimenez after the game. “That was a great learning experience for us and our kids. I think we came in feeling like it was David versus David, but at one point, it felt like David versus Goliath.”

Win or lose, this was already the most successful season in program history for the Cougars, who made their first-ever Elite Eight appearance a season after making their first-ever Sweet 16 appearance.

San Marcos takes on Minnesota State Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., Pacific Time, with a National Championship game appearance on the line.
