Two other seniors also finished in double figures for the Lobos as Tora Duff and Shai McGruder had 17 and 12 respectively. Rounding out the seniors for the Lobos were Antonia Anderson with nine points and Tay Duff with eight.
“It was amazing, and emotional,” said De La Cerda. “I’m glad I got to do it with all my teammates, my coaches, my family, the fans. It was a great goodbye. We still got a lot more to finish, so I guess, or something, because we got a big goal ahead of us.”
The Lobos still have two games remaining in the regular season on the road against Fresno State and San Jose State. The Mountain West tournament will take place March 6-9 in Las Vegas.
