Basketball: No. 2 Mount SAC Downs Cold-Shooting Vaqueros

SBCC misses 21 layups in Sequoias quarterfinal.

Missed layups and a flurry of turnovers doomed No. 20 SBCC on Friday in an 88-56 women’s basketball loss to Mount San Antonio at the Sequoias Tournament in Visalia.

The Vaqueros (7-4) shot just 33 percent and missed 21 layups against the state’s second-ranked team. Freshman center Andrea Owens scored 14 points and Katie Randall had 12.

The Mounties (10-1) led by 25 in the first half but SBCC trimmed the deficit to 16 by halftime, 49-33. The Vaqueros turned the ball over 31 times.

“We played hard, forcing them to commit 26 turnovers, but you can’t miss that many layups,” said coach Sandrine Krul. “I’m not happy with the loss but I’m happy with our commitment to compete.”

The Vaqueros will take on Moorpark in the fifth-place semifinals Saturday.

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!
