Holly Barrera, Hannah Rogers Lead SBCC Women in Rout

Holly Barrera scored a season-high 17 points on Thursday and Hannah Rogers recorded a double-double as SBCC dominated the second half in a 93-53 women’s basketball rout of Rio Hondo at the West Hills Tournament in Lemoore.

The Vaqueros (6-4) led 34-31 at the half, then erupted for a 34-12 third-quarter surge. They closed with a 19-4 run and took a 68-43 lead into the final period. They kept it going during a 25-10 fourth quarter that produced a plus-37 advantage (59-22) in the second half.

It was the third win by 40-plus points in the last six games for the Vaqueros, who beat Copper Mountain by 45 and Imperial Valley by 51.

Barrera, a freshman guard from Dos Pueblos High, hit 7-11 from the field for the Vaqueros, who’ve won three straight and five of their last six. Rogers added 14 points (on 5-6 shooting) and 12 rebounds.

Aaliyah Pauling also had a double-double with 14 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals. Sophia Torres added 12 points and six rebounds.

The Vaqueros used all 14 players and six scored in double figures.

Jennae Mayberry tallied 10 points and four boards and Lauren Noggle had 10 points. Diamond Alexander added seven points and seven rebounds.

“We consistently hit the high-low and found ourselves up big, SBCC coach Sandrine Krul said. "We had very balanced scoring and everyone contributed to a great team win."

SBCC outshot the Roadrunners 46 to 30 percent and doubled them up on the boards, 57-28.

Santa Barbara will take on the host West Hills on Friday at 7 p.m. in a semifinal of the Don Wakentin Classic. Sequoias, the state’s No. 2 team with a 15-0 record, will battle No. 6 Fresno City in the first semifinal at 5 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!
