'40 Minutes of Hell' is just that for Rio Hondo

SAN MARCOS (11-21-2014) -- The running, pressing 2014-15 Palomar women's basketball team's hectic style of play is described as "40 Minutes of Hell" for opponents. Visiting Rio Hondo found out why on Friday night as the Comets won their home opener 83-33 at The Dome.

Getting one steal, breakaway after another, followed by series of quick passes and both uncontested and contested layups, the Comets (5-0) raced to a 47-15 halftime lead and kept the pace up the entire evening. Along the way, coach Leigh Marshall continued sending waves of fresh troops onto the floor.

Keisha Cox, coming in and out of the game, scored a game-high 18 points to lead 11 Palomar players in the scoring column before exiting for good after she made two free throws with 16:14 remaining and the Comets leading the Roadrunners 62-22.

Cox scored 13 of Palomar's 15 points in the first 3 minutes, 46 seconds of the second half. She got most of her points during the evening off the Comets' transition game following rebounds, steals and forced Rio Hondo mistakes.

Cox drained two 3-pointers during the above 15-point run. Jessica Scott, Chelse Ayala and Zlee Lee Tomlinson also canned 3-point baskets.

Lynnzy Troxell (14 points) and Scott (13 points) joined Cox in double figures for the Comets as Palomar spread the wealth in the scoring column.

Scott scored 11 points and Troxell 10 in the first half, when Cox and Chelse Ayala each tallied five points.

Players coming off the bench for Palomar combined for 38 points. 

This was all against a Rio Hondo team that came into the game with a 4-1 record, including wins over Reedley, Taft, Hancock and 72-49 over College of the Desert last Saturday. The Roadrunners' only loss prior to Thursday was by six points to Los Angeles Harbor.

Palomar will host Los Angeles Valley, a 61-40 winner over Orange Coast earlier in the evening, on Saturday at 5 p.m. Orange Coast and Rio Hondo will play at 3 p.m.

Cox leads PC to title with 34 points, 10 boards

SAN JACINTO (11-16-2014) -- Keisha Cox, named the tournament MVP, powered Palomar to an 80-67 victory Sunday afternoon over previously unbeaten Mt. San Jacinto in the championship game of the San Jacinto Lions Club Lady Eagle Tipoff Tournament.

Cox led the way for the Comets (4-0) with 34 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals.

Melissa Allen (9 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists vs. the Eagles) and Lynnzy Troxell (8 points, 10 rebounds) also were named to the all-tournament team. Aliah Marshall had 9 points for Palomar.

Comets go to 3-0, to play for tournament title

SAN JACINTO (11-15-2014) -- The Palomar women's basketball team defeated Antelope Valley 75-72 in the semifinals on Saturday and will play host Mt. San Jacinto for the championship of the San Jacinto Lions Club Lady Eagle Tipoff Tournament on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Aliah Marshall (left) scored 17 points to lead the Comets against the Marauders. Melissa Allen had 16 points and eight rebounds, six on the offensive board. Ashleigh Barnes had nine points, and Keisha Cox contributed eight points and six assists before fouling out.

Antelope Valley, which put four players in double figures, battled back from a 42-31 halftime deficit to make it close in the second half.

Coach Leigh Marshall's Comets are 3-0 on the season. Mt. San Jacinto comes into Sunday's championship game at 2-0 after defeating Barstow 70-47 in the other semifinal game.

Palomar rolls to second straight blowout win

SAN JACINTO (11-14-2014) -- The Palomar women's basketball team, which won its season opener by 52 points a week ago against Santa Ana, made it two straight blowout wins on Friday. The Comets buried Chaffey 88-54 to open the San Jacinto Lions Club Lady Eagle Tipoff Tournament at Mt. San Jacinto College.

The Comets fell behind 8-0 to open the game, then blew the Panthers out of the water behind the play of Keisha Cox (left, 15 points), Melissa Allen (right, 15 points, 7 steals), Allah Marshall (10 points, 7 rebounds) and Tessa Balcom (10 points).

Aliah Marshall had seven rebounds and Ashleigh Barnes had six.

"No one played more than 21 minutes, which was good, but we were sloppy as a whole. We played hard but we've got to play smarter," coach Leigh Marshall said.

Five Comets in double figures in 52-pt. win

SANTA ANA (11-06-2014) -- Keisha Cox led the way with 21 points, eight rebounds, nine assists and four steals on Thursday evening as Palomar opened its women's basketball season with a 99-47 non-conference rout of Santa Ana on the road.

Five players scored in double figures for coach Leigh Marshall's Comets. Joining Cox were Melissa Allen with 17 points, Lynnzy Troxell with 16, and Ashley Barnes and Jessica Scott with 13 points each.

Troxell pulled down nine rebounds and also had five steals. 

Palomar opened up a 46-29 halftime lead, then hammered Santa Ana in the second half 53-18 as the Comets avenged an overtime loss to the Dons at the beginning of last season at The Dome.

Defensively, the Comets held Santa Ana to an 8.3 3-point percentage (1-for-12) and to an overall 20.9 shooting percentage (9-for-43).

Palomar outscored Santa Ana from the field 88 points to 19, and only the Dons' 28-for-47 night from the free throw line prevented the blowout from being even worse. That, and the fact Marshall cleared her bench early. Allen (23 minutes out of 40), Cox (22 minutes) and Scott (22 minutes) all played barely half the game.

Cox was 9-for-13 on field goal attempts.
