Dos Pueblos Turns Up Intensity in 2nd Half, Beats Righetti

Dos Pueblos turned up the defensive pressure in the second half and turned a 12-point deficit into a 13-point win at Righetti, 75-62, in a Central Coast Classic basketball game on Wednesday night.

"We played better defense in the second half and limited their offensive opportunities," said Dos Pueblos coach Joe Zamora.

Trailing 37-35 at halftime, Dos Pueblos outscored Righetti 27-10 in the third quarter.

Cyrus Wallace scored 19 points, Colton Huyck added 15 and Diego Riker chipped in 11 to lead the Chargers (2-1).

Marcellous Gossett was a force on the boards and on defense in the paint, and Daniel Arzate and Max McCeney provided an offensive spark in the second half, said Zamora.

"I was proud of the way that my team didn't quit when they were down," Zamora said. "This was the second road trip in two nights, so we are happy as a team but not content."

The Chargers return home to play Whittier on Friday at 7:30 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!
