Bishop Diego Tightens Defense in 2nd Half to Beat Nordhoff

Balanced scoring and tighter defense in the second half led Bishop Diego to a 36-32 win over Nordhoff in a Tri-Valley League girls basketball game on Tuesday night.

Six Cardinals scored five or more points, led by Kylie Koeper's nine points.

Bishop was trailing 18-14 in the first half but outscored the Rangers 12-4 in the third quarter.

"We tightened our defense in the second half and got some great inspirational play from freshman Ariana Morones," coach Jeff Burich said. "She scored four points in the last two minutes of the third quarter with a steal and a layup and an offensive put back. Natalie Whiting did a great job driving to the basket as well."

Veronica Morones, Ariana's older sister, made a big basket in the fourth quarter and Kara Murray made a free throw in the last minute to give the Cardinals a four-point cushion.

Bishop improves to 5-8 overall and 3-0 in league. The Cardinals play at Grace Brethren on Thursday at 7 p.m.

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!
