COSTA MESA, Calif. - Celebrating senior day as league champions, was a fitting way for the third ranked Vanguard University Lions (27-2, 15-1) to face the 21st ranked Master's University Mustangs (20-7, 10-6). However, the celebrations would have to wait until after the game, considering this was a contest between two ranked teams. Nevertheless, the Lions closed out the conference on a high, winning 67-46.

PHOENIX, Ariz.- Following their first conference defeat at the hands of Biola, the Vanguard University Lions (25-2, 13-1) faced the Arizona Christian University Firestorm (13-12, 7-7), with a burning desire to bounce back. In what was a relatively comfortable contest, the Lions did indeed bounce back, beating the Firestorm 58-47. Claire Lamunu (SR/Kampala, Uganda) returned to the top of the point pile, leading with 17 points on the day.

LA MIRADA, Calif.- Following their 20th consecutive victory against Hope, the third ranked Vanguard University Lions (24-2, 12-1) were finally bested by the 17th ranked Biola University Eagles (20-6, 11-3) 71-47. As hard as it is to see the Pride's incredible run come to an end, it's made all the worse by the fact that it was ended by their bitter Biola rivals. This defeat came down to a variety of different factors, with Claire Lamunu (SR/Kampala, Uganda)'s 20 points not being enough to win the game.

COSTA MESA, Calif. – Five out of six. That is the number of Golden State Athletic Conference Players of the Week that Claire Lamunu (SR/Kampala, Uganda) has taken home this season. The senior is on fire and once again continues to dominate for the fifth ranked Lions. This week, in an upset over #3 Westmont and a home victory over Hope International, she averaged 21 points and 14 rebounds while shooting over 50% from the field and a perfect 100% from the charity stripe. Lamunu is cementing a strong case for conference Player of the Year and building a worthy resume for awards on the national level as well.

Hey everyone!  February is here and conference play for our basketball teams is coming to an end.  As it definitely went faster than expected, my team and I are working hard and it's surely paying off as we're heading in to our third to last game at 24-1 and undefeated in conference.  Coach Russ Davis continues to push us to our limits every day to get the best out of each and every person on the team.  As we grow in this process, mentally and physically, he is preparing us not only for our road to the national championship, but also life and the obstacles it throws at us.
