Simeone Baker had 14 points and 12 rebounds and Ronisha Edwards had 12 points as 13th-seeded San Bernardino Valley shocked 4th-seeded Orange Coast, 61-59, in a Southern California Regional playoff game at Orange Coast College. Jasmine Marshall added 11 points for the Wolverines (20-9), who held the Pirates to 22 points below their season scoring average. SBVC will face the winner of Fullerton and Santa Barbara in the regional finals on Mar. 3. “Obviously, this win is huge for us,” coach Sue Crebbin said. “We were the only ones who thought we could win this game.” Courtney Ford had a game-high 21 points, but was the only player in double figures for the Pirates, who finish 28-4. Valley kept the game close at half, trailing 27-26 despite shooting just 22.9 percent from the field. Still, Crebbin felt that was the turning point of the game. The Wolverines also used superior rebounding, grabbing 35 in the first half and 54 for the game compared with just 39 for the Pirates. “At halftime with the score where it was I knew we were in good shape,” Crebbin said. “We just had to get through the first five minutes without fouling anybody out.” Valley trailed for most of the game, but eventually took the lead with about eight minutes remaining, getting the advantage as high as 55-50 with 4:23 left in the contest. OCC had a chance to tie the ballgame late, but Ford missed a pair of putback attempts in close and the Wolverines were able to survive a pair of missed free throws with six seconds left.
