In their own words
Players’ thoughts on top moments in their rivalries and more
|UC SAN DIEGO | WOMEN'S BASKETBALL|
• Who is your team’s biggest rival and why?
This year, that university would be Pomona. Last year we went 0-2 against them in conference play. As well, we lost to Pomona in the CCAA tournament where our season ended. That loss stung deep and was a motivating factor for our program during spring and summer training.
• What moment and from when is your best memory against Pomona?
My best memory against Pomona would be our first chance at redemption when we played them at home in December. Looking at the clock with 25 seconds to go and realizing that we got the win was an amazing feeling. That game was something that we had been working for and waiting for since March.
• When did you realize this rivalry was so big?
• What is your favorite college sports rivalry other than your school’s and why?
If you're a native to the state, it's basically a requirement that you choose a side. I won't disclose where my loyalties lie...(GO HUSKIES!)...but it's great to have a huge rivalry game that everyone knows about and participates in.
