Dos Pueblos broke open a close game with a 28-point third quarter and ran away to an 80-51 boys basketball win over visiting Canyon Country-Canyon on Friday night at Sovine Gym.

The Chargers trailed 17-16 after the first quarter and took a 33-27 lead at halftime.

"We had some early miscues but we were able to adjust and attack their trapping zone," said DP coach Joe Zamora. "In the 3rd quarter, our defense really established itself and we were able to go on a good run."

Max McCeney scored 14 points to lead DP, Christian Hodosy had 13 points and Ryan Hodosy, Aidan Chandrasakaran and Jake Enrico each tallied eight points, as the Chargers improved to 11-1 heading into their Channel League opener on Wednesday against Buena.

"Everyone stepped up tonight and it was good to see all of our players contribute to this win," Zamora said. "This game was a good test for us as we enter a very tough league schedule."

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!
