Basketball: Vaqueros’ Comeback Falls Short, 80-73

SBCC turns it around after turnover-filled first half, but Palomar escapes with a win.

After falling behind by 14 points at halftime, SBCC stormed back to get within two of Palomar on Saturday in the Sports Pavilion before dropping an 80-73 men’s basketball decision.

Lucky Teeguarden led the Vaqueros (2-5) with 23 points while Richard Somdah had 14 points and seven rebounds.

SBCC commited 14 first-half turnovers and trailed 48-34 at intermission. The Vaqueros were within two at 66-64 with five minutes to play. They were down by four, 74-70, with 38 seconds left but a turnover led to a Comet basket.

It was the second meeting in six days between the teams. Palomar downed the Vaqueros, 76-57, on Nov. 16.

Santa Barbara returns to action Friday in the Oxnard Tournament, opening against West L.A. at 1 p.m.

Dave Loveton is Santa Barbara City College’s sports information specialist.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
