Joining Texada in double figures was senior guard Brittany Chambers with 14 points. The All-America candidate hauled in nine rebounds and dished out four assists on Tuesday night. Chambers now ranks 14th in school history for career rebounds with 605 and ranks 16th in the program’s history with 252 career assists.
