Bishop Diego Girls Basketball Turns Things Around Against Nordhoff

Bishop Diego played inspired basketball in front a big home crowd and defeated Nordhoff 32-25 for its first Frontier League girls baskeball win on Thursday night.

Natalie Whiting scored 16 points and Ashlyn Oxton added six for the Cardinals, who lost by 25 at Nordhoff last week.

"I think having a big crowd playing before the boys varsity game helped," said coach Jeff Burich. "The team really did a great job on the rebounding side and did a much better job of taking care of the ball."

The Cardinals (6-12, 1-7) fell behind 24-23 in the fourth quarter, but Whiting scored on an offensive rebound and was fouled. She completed the three-point play to give them the lead for good 

Whiting and Oxton made six free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

"Ashlyn really played well in the second half offensively and grabbed some big rebounds defensively," said Burich.

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!
