University of Redlands women’s basketball coach Jim Ducey can only wonder what would have happened if his Bulldogs had gotten off to a better start. Redlands (13-7, 6-4) lost its first four Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference games, three by a combined margin of 11 points. It has bounced back to win its last six, but that might be too little too late with just four games remaining. Johnson, a senior from San Antonio, led the Coyotes to an 8-1 mark in the month. He is averaging 13.6 points and 4.5 rebounds. He also has 29 steals, 26 assists and 13 blocked shots. Snyder, of Norco, has started all 21 games. The senior is the second-leading rebounder (5.5 rpg) and one of the team’s defensive standouts. Cal State San Bernardino junior Jennifer Joy has been named Penn/CCAA women’s tennis player of the week. Joy, of Palm Desert, won both her singles matches last week, one against Master’s College and one against Hope International. She and doubles partner Leslie Horn split their matches. Joy, the regining CCAA Player of the Year, has 29 career singles wins, one shy of the school record held by her coach, Heather Lehman Langley. She has a chance to tie that record Friday in a match against Cal State Bakersfield. UC Riverside sophomore forward Amber Cox has been named Big West co-player of the week. She averaged 16.5 points, 7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 blocks in two games last week. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

As expected, the Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team dropped to second in the Division II West Region rankings released Wednesday. Humboldt State (18-3, 13-3) moved into the top spot while the Coyotes (16-5, 12-4) fell to second after a loss to Cal Poly Pomona. The Broncos (15-6, 11-5) are third. The team that finishes first typically is awarded hosting rights for the postseason tournament. The Coyotes have six games left, including road games this weekend at Chico State and Cal State Stanislaus, both bottom-tier teams in the conference. Meanwhile, the Cal State San Bernardino women moved from eighth to sixth after three wins in five days. The Coyotes (15-6, 11-5) have four wins over teams in the top 10, including one over No. 1 UC San Diego. They will play at No. 2 Chico State on Friday. There are six CCAA teams among the region’s top nine. Cal State San Bernardino basketball players Ivan Johnson and Denise Snyder have been named athletes of the month for January by the Coyotes Athletic Association. A win tonight at frontrunner La Verne (16-5, 9-1) would help, though. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (12-9, 7-3) also stands between the Bulldogs and the top spot. Junior point guard Valarie Katayama (12.2 ppg, 4.8 apg) totaled 23 points and four assists in the Bulldogs’ win over the Athenas on Saturday. Others pitching in are freshman guard Ali Bueno (9.3 ppg), junior forward Alison Lavine (8.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg) and senior defensive standout Rachae Bell.
