Injuries slowing down Cal Poly women during two-week layoff

It's been an eventful two week break for the Cal Poly women's basketball team. The Mustangs open a three game homestand on Sunday, but questions exist over who will be ready to play for the Green and Gold.

The 5-3 Mustangs host San Diego State on Sunday when it will be exactly two weeks since their last game, a win at Nevada.

The break has allowed the team to add a few plays and work on fine-tuning its game. However, head coach Faith Mimnaugh says several key players have been slowed by injuries during the break. Kristen Ale and Brittany Woodard suffered injuries.

Kayla Griffin, Nikol Allison and Maddie Allen are also hobbled by back injuries.

"It couldn't have come at a better time to have the injures. Hopefully we can get some of the bodies back by our game time on Sunday. But I'm glad we didn't have games for two weeks. I don't know if we would have been able to field a strong team at that stage," said coach Mimnaugh.

"I feel that slowly, but surely we're improving. There's a lot of things like always to be improved on, so we're just taking full advantage of the time that we have," added junior center Molly Schlemer, who is averaging 8 points and 5 rebounds per game.

Tip of Sunday against the Aztecs is at 2 pm. The Mustangs host University of San Francisco at 7pm and Loyola Marymount on Thursday at 7pm.
