Bishop Diego stayed close to first-place St. Bonaventure, but the visiting Seraphs made plays down the stretch and beat the Cardinals, 71-61, in a highly contested Tri-Valley League boys basketball game on Monday night at the Brick House.

The result clinches a title tie for St. Bonaventure (9-0). Bishop Diego is 6-3.

"I felt we played hard and we were matching blow for blow but their offensive boards hurt us," said Bishop coach James Coronado. "We also had a few too many defensive lapses that didn't allow us to close the gap either.

"I'm proud of the way we fought but we made too many mistakes to beat a good team like St. Bonny. The credit goes to them, they made more plays than we did tonight."

Andrew Ziehl scored 17 points to lead the Cardinals, Mitch Cota had 11 and Dylan Streett nine. Kaj Rojas of St. Bonaventure led all scorers with 21 points.

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!
