Denise Sitton got her record, but she wasn't very happy after Cal State Northridge's basketball game against Cal State Dominguez Hills Saturday night in Carson.
Mad and frustrated would be a better description. And probably a little embarrassed.
Dominguez Hills snapped a 17-game losing streak in California Collegiate Athletic Assn. games, defeating Northridge, 64-61, in overtime.
And Sitton could only watch.
After setting a Northridge career scoring record during an 18-point first-half, Sitton was a spectator in the decisive part of the game after fouling out with five minutes left in regulation.
She finished with 22 points and has 1,275 in her career--11 more than Paula Moran, now an assistant at Northridge. But that was little consolation.
"I thought we would beat this team by 20. . . . We've never had a good experience at this gym," she said.
The Lady Matadors led in overtime, 61-59, but the Lady Toros made 5 of 6 free throws in the last minute to win.
