Delta Defense Too Much for SBCC

San Joaquin Delta built a 37-21 halftime lead on Thursday on the way to a 76-56 women's basketball victory over SBCC in the first round of the Saddleback Lady Gaucho Classic in Mission Viejo.

Delta won the shooting battle 35.6 to 27.5 percent and took advantage of 38 Vaquero turnovers that led to 36 points.

Destinee King led the Vaqueros (2-3) with 17 points and eight rebounds. Stella Dulay had 14 points, thanks to 11-12 free-throw shooting, and Alyssa Cosio added 11.

Mia Jones had 22 points and seven rebounds for the Mustangs (3-1), who attempted 50 more field goals (90 to 40) and made 21 more (32 to 11).

“Their press was very hot and we just couldn’t score, even when we broke it,” said coach Sandrine Krul.

The Vaqueros will take on San Diego Mesa on Friday in a consolation semifinal at 3 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!
