    On Friday, the Tritons downed California State University Los Angeles 76-65 but fell Saturday night to California State University Dominguez Hills 50-49.

    The loss to Dominguez Hills was a heartbreaker.

    With four-and-a-half minutes left in the game, UCSD held a 46-38 advantage after an Ali Ginn bucket.

    The Toros stormed back after a basket by Tomica Coleman and a three-pointer by Fercia Rambacal, closing the gap to two, at 46-44. UCSD’s Maya Fok answered with a bucket of her own, but Dominguez Hills eventually tied it up with 44 seconds left at 48-48.

    With time running down, Toros star Tracee Lewis drove the lane and connected with an off-balance junk shot, giving her team the lead at 50-48.

    The Tritons still had six seconds left and they gave the ball to their star Fok. Fok drove the lane and put up a shot. Her prayer fell short, but she was fouled with only two-tenths of a second left. At the line for the evening, Fok had been 6-6, but all of those had come in the first half.

    She missed the first shot. In an attempt to miss the second shot and hope for a rebound and game- tying miracle shot, Fok made the foul shot. She would end the game 7-8 from the line.

    Fok led the Tritons with 17 points and Nicholle Bromley chipped in with 10 points and eight rebounds.

    Against Los Angeles, UCSD had to work a little comeback magic. The Tritons found themselves down 38-33 at the half. They proceeded to go on a 43-27 run in the second half for the victory.

    Bromley scored 17 to lead all scorers and she had nine rebounds. Fok participated with 14 points.

    Genevieve Ruvald had a great game, almost accomplishing a triple-double when she scored nine points, had 10 rebounds and dished nine assists.

    Next up for the Tritons is a trip to Grand Canyon University on Wednesday at 5:45 p.m.
