Buena’s barrage of three-pointers was too much for Santa Barbara High’s boys basketball team, as the Dons fell 84-70 in a Channel League game on Wednesday at Buena.

The Bulldogs knocked down 15 shots from behind the arc. Cody Barbar led the way with four and Josh Edwards made three.

Santa Barbara got big games from sophomore Bryce Warrecker and freshman Jasper Johnson. They combined for 49 points, with Warrecker scoring 27 and Johnson 22. Sophomore Stephen Davis scored 13 points.

The Dons couldn’t slow down Buena’s Devin Cole in the first half. He scored 17 points of his team-high 24 points in the half, helping the Bulldogs take a 44-29 lead.

Buena expanded its lead to 61-43 by the end of the third quarter.

Santa Barbara falls to 1-4 in league and 7-6 overall. Buena (17-6) stays right behind first-place San Marcos with a record of 5-1 in league.

Santa Barbara hosts Buena on Friday.

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!
