In Thursday's opening round of the 41st annual Tom Gilcrest Invitational, the College of the Sequoias women's basketball team defeated Riverside 91-74.
The Giants bench proved to be the difference maker in the fourth quarter. Isabella Jimenez was a perfect 3-for-3 behind the three-point line, scoring 11 total points. Shae Sanchez hit two shots behind the arc for six points.
Sequoias play Pasadena City in the second round of the Gilcrest Invitational. COS defeated Pasadena City, 72-36, in PCC President's Roundball Classic Championship Final, earlier this season.
