Chico State’s Bailey Jones sets new single-game 3-point record in triple overtime loss

CHICO – Chico State women’s basketball coach Brian Fogel says guard Bailey Jones has a great stroke when she gets her feet just below her shot. Fogel said Jones is a shooter and shooters get into the rhythm.

Entering Saturday’s game against Humboldt State, Jones had a single-game career-high of three 3-pointers. He did so twice in the 2021 season and scored 16 3-pointers on the season entering Saturday.

In Saturday night’s home game against the Lumberjacks, Jones not only broke his career-high 3-pointers in one game, but also the Chico State single-game record for 3-pointers. The previous record was 25 years old and was set by Tessa Isola against Azusa Pacific on December 5, 1996.

Jones scored a 10-in-18 shot at the Wildcats’ 105-96 at Humboldt State in triple overtime. The loss came after Chico State’s last scheduled game against Humboldt State on December 11. One on the Seahawks team against Sonoma State was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Jones scored his first 3-pointer in the first half with less than a minute and a half. He made one three in the third quarter, four in the fourth quarter, one in the first overtime period. Jones gave Chico State a 86–85 lead in the first minute of the second overtime period, when he tied the school record, and his ninth came with 1 minute and 41 seconds to play.

“I didn’t do anything different in practice, but I felt comfortable shooting it tonight,” Jones said after the game. “You shoot best whenever you’re at home.”

Jones scored his 10th 3-pointer of the game with 10 seconds remaining in the third overtime period.

“Shout out to overtime,” Jones said with a laugh.

Fogel said he saw that Jones was going to have a good night’s shoot on his second or third shot of the game. Rather than alluding to the number of shots the senior had made, Fogel said that usually how you can tell how a shooter’s night is going to go is that they miss, and that “his memories were close. ”

Asked if she was tired of triple-overtime putting up 18 3-pointers in the game, Jones said, “No. I told the referee we could keep this going all night. We’ll do more if we have to. Can play five minutes.”

Jones’ teammate Charity Gallegos made a rebound less than a triple-double in Saturday’s game. Chico State’s new guard Gallegos finished 48 minutes with 25 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds. Gallegos had five offensive rebellions and four defensive rebellions.

Gallegos, who led the Wildcats in rebounds, said that despite being the shortest player on Chico State’s roster, he believes his height doesn’t matter.

“I’m going to go after the ball no matter what and I’m always going to be the toughest player on the court,” Gallegos said.

While the nearly triple-double was impressive, Gallegos coach Fogel was even more impressed by the fact that as the Wildcats’ primary ball handler, the freshman made just three turnovers in 48 minutes.

“He’s played a lot of basketball and he has great feel for the game right now,” Fogel said. “She does a good job involving other people and she is not afraid of any moment. No moment is too big for her.”

Chico State quickly fell behind. The Wildcats trailed 21-2 after the first five minutes of play but ended the first quarter on 15-3. The Wildcats were trailing 24-17 at the end of the first quarter and 41-36 at halftime.

Fogel said the Wildcats had a downfall and he dug the team into a deep hole.

Humboldt State shot 9–14 (64.3%) on field goals and 6–10 (60%) on 3-pointers in the opening quarter, but only 42% on field goals and 27% on 3-pointers for the rest of the game. Did. ,

“He shot the ball very well in the beginning and we didn’t shoot the ball well in the beginning,” Fogel said.

Fogel said his team was back in the game after cutting a seven-point lead at the end of the first quarter.

“I knew they wouldn’t continue shooting well. But we’ve done that for a few games now,” Fogel said. “We dug a big pit for ourselves. That’s 5 minutes when we have 2 points, a basket. If you play 5 minutes and score a basket it gets really tough. That was the difference in the game . If you remove that last overtime we outscored him by 19 from that point on.”

In the first overtime period, Ashley Peralta of Humboldt State made a layoff to tie the game 80–80 with 15 seconds left. Morgan Mathis scored a 3-pointer to bring the Wildcats to 83-80 with six seconds to play, but Humboldt State’s Julia Iman made a deep 3-pointer with two seconds to extend the game to double overtime. replied with

Iman finished the game with a team-high 33 points for Humboldt and Peralta scored 22.

In the second overtime period, Peralta gave the Lumberjacks a two-point lead to open the period after stealing, but Jones scored a 3-pointer to give the Wildcats the lead. Sharon Roldan gave Humboldt a 91-88 lead with 2:03 to play, but Jones made his ninth 3-pointer with 1:41.

In the final overtime period, the game was tied 93–93 after the first minute, but after Gallegos’ layoff with 4:13 in the third overtime period, Chico State went nearly four minutes scoreless until Jones scored. Didn’t make my 10th 3-. Game indicator with 10 seconds to play.
