Game Slips Away From Santa Barbara Girls in Overtime Against Ventura

Santa Barbara High girls basketball was edged in overtime by Ventura, 58-56, despite Cassandra Gordon's 20-point, seven-rebound performance  on Saturday in a Channel League game at Tuttle Gym.

Alondra Jiminez hit a triple at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

Santa Barbara cut the deficit to one with seconds left before Ventura sealed the game with a free throw. 

Jimenez delivered 18 points, six assists and six rebounds for the Dons. 

"It was an extremely close game between two very evenly matched teams," Santa Barbara coach Andrew Butcher said. "Our first-round game also ended in overtime.   

"A few mental mistakes were the difference in the game." 

Santa Barbara and entura are now tied for first place in Channel League play with one loss apiece.

The Dons will take on rival San Marcos on Monday.

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!
