MOORPARK - The Moorpark College women's basketball team is off to a hot start. The Raiders are winners of 10 straight, including Saturday's 88-39 win over tournament-host Santa Ana in the final, giving the team its third straight tournament victory.

The Raiders also won the Riverside and Saddleback tournaments, respectively.

Barbara Rangel scored 17 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in Saturday's victory, while point guard Breanna Calhoun notched a game-high 20 points to go along with five rebounds and five assists.

Rangel, a recent University of Hawaii commit, was named tournament MVP, and Emily Herring was named to the all-tournament team. The tournament journey included wins over Merced (71-55) and Bakersfield (90-52), respectively. Rangel, a 6-foot-2 center, is the reigning Western State (North) Conference MVP and currently averaging 17.9 points and 13.7 rebounds per contest to lead the Raiders.

Moorpark (10-0) will take the floor next at home on Dec. 8 against Mt. San Jacinto.
