Dos Pueblos Solves Oxnard’s Pressing Defense, Wins 51-34

The experience of Holly Barrera and Camila Casanueva paid dividends for the Dos Pueblos girls basketball team against a relentless pressing defense by Oxnard on Tuesday night.

The four-year varsity players were able to break the press and create opportunities for easy baskets in a 51-34 victory at Oxnard.

"Our girls have seen many different tactics used against them this year and find counters when our first option isn't available," said DP coach Phil Sherman.

Barrera led a balanced Chargers offense with 14 points, which include three three-pointers. Lauren Noggle had eight points and Kristina Mortimer added six.

"I'm pleased with our offense, but our girls are playing really good team defense right now," said Sherman.

Dos Pueblos improves to 15-1 heading into its Channel League opener next Tuesday at San Marcos.

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!
