After a cold-shooting first quarter, the Umpqua Community College women’s basketball team warmed up against Southwestern Oregon on Wednesday night.

The top-ranked Riverhawks outscored SWOCC by 24 over the last three periods and remained unbeaten with an 87-67 victory in a Northwest Athletic Conference South Region game in Coos Bay.

Umpqua (28-0, 15-0 South), which clinched the league title last week, set a school record by winning its 28th straight game to start the season.

Sophomore guard Hunter Boske came off the bench to lead the Riverhawks with 24 points, connecting on six 3-point field goals. It was her second-highest scoring output of the season.

Former Douglas High standout Darian Mitchell had 22 points and 10 rebounds for UCC, hitting four 3-pointers. Cielo Gonzalez had 14 points and eight assists, and Sienna Riggle chipped in 10 points and seven boards.

Umpqua shot 44.4% from the field, 39.3% from 3-point range and 66.7% from the foul line and outrebounded the Lakers 43-23. UCC trailed 15-11 after one quarter.

Meghan Holloman had 16 points and four steals for SWOCC (11-17, 5-10). Taylor Morris added 13.

The Riverhawks can wrap up a perfect regular season Saturday at home against No. 4 Clackamas (21-5, 11-4). Tip off is scheduled for 2 p.m.
