Breakers Looking to Stay Perfect in League

Santa Barbara welcomes back Tyler Newton as it squares off with the Pasadena Slam on Saturday.

The Santa Barbara Breakers basketball team looks to extend its three-game winning streak Saturday against the Pasadena Slam.

The Breakers had to grind out a 117-108 victory last weekend against the Carlsbad Beach Dawgs, to stay a perfect 3-0 in the West Coast Pro Basketball League. Santa Barbara comes into this weekend’s game seasoned and tested having already played in three games, while Pasadena will be playing in its first-ever WCBL contest.

Santa Barbara welcomes back a familiar face for Saturday’s game, as Tyler Newton makes his return to the Breakers. The 6-foot-10 forward from the University of Pacific appeared in all 23 games last year for the Breakers, averaging 12.7 points per game.

Singing the national anthem for Saturday‘s contest will be singer Kenny Loggins. Performing at halftime will be dance group Tamarr Paul of Rhythm Dance and Fitness Studios. The Breakers are offering two-for-one general admission tickets, or fans have the option of selecting two free youth tickets. The Breakers also are celebrating Santa Barbara’s teachers by offering them tickets at a 50 percent discount.

Tip-off between the Breakers and the Slam at the Santa Barbara City College Sports Pavilion is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Michael Palia is the Breakers’ assistant director of media relations.

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!
