Starla Wright continues to lead the first-place Regals basketball team. In a win over Whittier on Thursday the senior recorded a monster 17-point, 17-rebound double-double by shooting 50.0 percent from the floor and going 8-for-9 at the charity stripe. Additionally, she recorded a pair of assists, a block and a steal. In a hard fought 53-49 win on the road at Occidental she shared the team-lead with 13 points, adding a game-high eight rebounds with a pair of steals, a block and an assist. Wright was 9-for-12 at the line and was responsible for breaking a 47-47 tie with 1:59 remaining in regulation with a free-throw. She would hit two more at the 1:22 mark as CLU held on for the win and the season sweep of the Tigers.
