Dos Pueblos Works Overtime to Beat Arcadia, Reach Ventura Kiwanis Semifinals

Dos Pueblos outscored Arcadia 17-8 in overtime and pulled out a 76-66 boys basketball victory on Thursday to advance to the semifinals of the Ventura Kiwanis Tournament.

The Chargers (8-1) will play Glendora (9-3) at 7:30 p.m., at Oxnard High.

Dos Pueblos played tough defense to make it tough for Arcadia's top two players, Jay Yoon and Jason Cardenas. They scored 14 and 16 points, respectively, but shot a low percentage.

"We were able to mix up our defenses to keep them off balance," DP coach Joe Zamora said. 

Dos Pueblos led 45-39 entering the fourth quarter, but Arcadia made a run and tied the score at 60.

"We had a look at the end of regulation but missed the shot," Zamora said. "In overtime, we were able to keep pressure on them and as a result created some key turnovers for baskets.

"It was a good test for us, as we lost our previous overtime by three."

Jake Enrico scored 18 points to lead four Chargers in double figures;  Max McCeney had 15 points and Cyrus Wallace and Christian Hodosy added 10 points apiece. Aidan Chandrasekaran knocked down three three-pointers for nine points.

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!
