The Pomona-Pitzer women’s basketball team (17-5, 11-2 SCIAC) beat Chapman 90-83 in an away game Saturday to clinch a spot in the postseason SCIAC tournament for the first time since 2002.

The Sagehens shot 56.3 percent from the field and 62.5 percent from three-point territory to post a minimum of 20 points in each quarter. Carly Leong PZ ’22 tied her career high to lead the Sagehens with 26 points while classmate Amara Chidom PZ ’22 nabbed a team-leading seven rebounds.
