Alyssia Cosio Steps Up in Overtime to Lead SBCC Women

Alyssa Cosio scored eight of her 13 points in overtime on Wednesday night as SBCC rallied for a 72-68 victory over Oxnard in a WSC North women’s basketball game at the Sports Pavilion.

It was the first home game of 2017 for the Vaqueros (12-6, 2-0), who’ve won five straight and nine of their last 11. It was also the first home appearance with the new red bleachers and the first home game in nearly seven weeks, since Dec. 3.

Destinee King led the Vaqueros with 20 points and a career-high 22 rebounds in 43 minutes. It was the eighth straight double-double for King, who also had five steals and three blocks. King has 51 points, 39 rebounds and nine blocks in two conference games. She’s No. 9 on the State rebounding chart (11.9) and leads the WSC North in scoring average (18.4), rebounds (11.9) and blocks (1.9).

Jocelin  Petatan added 14 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three steals for the Vaqueros, who are 5-0 at home this season.

Zoe Bowden scored 16 of her 23 for Oxnard (5-14, 0-2) in the second half and OT.

The teams were tied 24-all at the half and 55-55 at the end of regulation. SBCC trailed by four with (55-51) with 2:08 to play but Petatan knocked down a bucket, then blocked a layup at the other end. King hit two free throws with 62 seconds left to tie it at 55.

Santa Barbara outshot the Condors 34 to 26 percent and won the rebound battle, 63-54, for the 16th time in 17 games.

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!
