Throughout the year Imperial Valley College shooting guard Jenny Burgos has been somewhat overshadowed by the other players in the starting five when it came to scoring, which is strange considering usually a shooting guard's main responsibility is to score.
But with other options on the team such as Sandra Ramos, averaging 19 points per game, Jello Moore (14.6 points per game) and LaToya Jackson (13.3), there really hasn't been much need for Burgos to contribute heavily as a scorer.
On Friday, with sole possession of second place in the Pacific Coast Conference up for grabs against defending conference champion Palomar College, IVC needed a big game from someone other than the big three.
With the game on the line in the second half, the Arabs' coaching staff challenged someone to step up. It was a challenge Burgos accepted as she scored 14 points (two threes), pulled down two rebounds, dished two assists and ripped off a steal in the game as IVC knocked off the defending champs for the second time this season, winning 59-54.
