Women's Basketball Milestones: Kim Smith Now 6th On All-Time Scoring List
With a current 870 career points, Kim Smith has reached No. 6 on the Pasadena City College women's basketball all-time scoring list. Smith, a sophomore guard, is looking to become only the fourth Lancer to ever reach 1,000 points.
Kinyada Johnson (2007-2009) tops that list at 1,092 career points, capped by helping PCC win the '09 CCCAA state title. Dionne Pounds (2003-2005, 1,056 points) and Jeanine Deno (2004-2007, 1025 points) complete that elite top of the chart. Also in front of Smith (pictured) are Easter Faafiti (2007-2009), like Johnson a teammate of Smith on last season's champion team, and Jackie Sadler (1996-1998) who are tied for No. 4 at 992 points each.
More Women's Basketball Notes
PCC Head Coach Joe Peron is seven wins shy of the 350 career victory mark. He is already the college's all-time coaching wins leader in either women's and men's basketball. He is in his 14th season in charge of the Lancers.
PCC's 23-point loss to Mt. San Antonio Wednesday was the largest margin of defeat by a Lancers' team since losing to the Mounties by 28 (82-54) in the 2004 state championship final. In the period of time since that '04 contest through today, Pasadena has only lost 23 games, but won a remarkable 168, including being the only college in California to reach each of the last six Final 8 state tournaments.
