Cal Lutheran moved into a tie atop the SCIAC standings after earning a 64-60 comeback victory on the road knocking off then-conference unbeaten Redlands on Saturday. In that victory Whitley led the team in scoring off the bench, as she has done the past four games, with 17 points including 14 in the second half to lead the come-from-behind effort. She also led the Regals with four assists and a pair of steals in the weekend win. On Thursday she scored a career-high 22 points in only 18 minutes during a victory over Pomona-Pitzer. She matched her previous personal-best of 17 by halftime and added three steals, a pair of assists and a block in limited action. Whitley currently leads the SCIAC with 44 steals and is the Regals top-scorer averaging 11.4 points per game while averaging just over 21 minutes of floor time per contest.
