Men’s Basketball: SBCC Overcomes 18-Point Deficit, But Falls in OT

The Vaqueros lose 74-71 to Sierra in the first round of the Monterey Bay Classic.

MONTEREY — The Santa Barbara City College men’s basketball team rallied from an 18-point halftime deficit Thursday night before falling to Sierra 74-71 in overtime in a first-round men’s basketball game at the Monterey Bay Classic.

It was the third straight loss for the Vaqueros (3-8), who made 20 first-half turnovers and fell behind 42-24. With 10 seconds to go in regulation, Brandon Greene hit a three-pointer on an assist from Mark Keeten to tie it at 65 and force overtime.

“The guys showed a tremendous amount of heart to fight back to force OT,” Vaquero coach Morris Hodges said.

David Lane led SBCC with 18 points, and Lucky Teeguarden had 17 points and seven rebounds. Greene finished with 10 points, while Keeten and Ryan Gosselin grabbed five rebounds each.

SBCC will take on the host, Monterey Peninsula, at 3 p.m. Friday.

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!
