Cypress used a balanced offensive attack and smothering defense to knock off IVC in their opening round matchup on Wednesday. The Chargers forced IVC to commit 29 turnovers, resulting in 31 Cypress points.
Freshman Tanya Carbajal led the Chargers with a season-high 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting off the bench. Freshman Janei-Ruby Fuamatu added 11 points and sophomore Christa Evans finished with 9 points and 9 rebounds.
The Chargers will have a much tougher task in Saturday's matchup against the Huskies. However, Cypress got the job done earlier this season in a 77-72 victory over ELAC at home on December 1, snapping the Huskies' nine-game winning streak.
