Basketball: Vaqueros Rally to Edge Moorpark, 60-58

Randall's offense and defense carry SBCC into 5th-place final of Sequoias Tournament.

Sophomore forward Katie Randall scored 18 points, including back-to-back 3-pointers that put SBCC ahead to stay Saturday in a 60-58 women’s basketball win over WSC rival Moorpark. The Vaqueros (8-4) advanced to the fifth-place final against Cerritos on Sunday in the 16-team Sequoias Tournament in Visalia.

“It was a great game,” coach Sandrine Krul said. “Katie did a great job on Tiffany Hurd (who was averaging 27 ppg), holding her to three first-half points.”

Hurd finished with 18 points and her last-second shot bounced off the back of the rim and out.

With her team trailing 50-49, Randall hit two straight 3-pointers to put the Vaqueros ahead to stay at 55-50. Randall also had 10 rebounds.

Nikki Graham scored 14 for SBCC. Imelda Bealer made five steals and played stellar defense on the Raiders’ point guard in the second half.

A key turning point came with 11:10 remaining when the Vaqueros bench was whistled for a technical foul and then Krul got another one.

“That turned the game around,” Krul noted. “It fired up our team.”

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!
