EAST LOS ANGELES - It all came down to the final game of the regular season. Both LA Trade-Tech and East LA Colleges held an 8-1 record in the South Coast Conference, North Division, and the hosting Huskies had won 15 of their last 16 games, dating back to mid-December.
That one loss? 71-57 at LA Trade-Tech on February 6.
East LA looked to split the season series against the Beavers, and carried a two-point lead into halftime, before LATTC staged a second-half rally to win the game, and the division, with a convincing 83-73 victory.
Cheyenne Givens lead the eventual champions in scoring with 37 points, only 6 of which were from three-pointers. Cheyenne McKinnie and Kemanie Patterson each posted double-doubles for their points and rebounds.
The Lady Beavers will host a second round regional playoff game on Saturday night at 7pm against either College of the Canyons or MiraCosta College.
