Regals Fall in SCIAC Semifinals

ORANGE, Calif. — Chapman's Lucy Criswell poured in a career-high 31 points, shooting 13-of-20 from the field, and the Panthers defeated the Cal Lutheran Regals 75-52 in the semifinals of the SCIAC Postseason Tournament in the Hutton Sports Center.

With the win, Chapman advanced to the finals and will take on the No. 1 seed Claremont-Mudd-Scripps.

The Panthers used that momentum and didn't slow down. They outscored the Regals in every quarter and won the game 75-52.
