With an entire half to play, Gauchos sophomore center Rekeshia Jones had her double-double in sight.

Jones finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds, but the Gauchos couldn’t finish off the Pirates, who went on an 18-2 run late in the second half and eventually pulled off a 77-74 doube-overtime victory at Peterson Gym Friday.

Jones is on pace to eclipse her freshman season, where she averaged 11.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 2.1 blocks for the Gauchos and earned all-OEC recognition.

Saddleback next hosts Irvine Valley College when the sister schools face off Jan. 30 at 5:30 p.m.
