Marko Pliso’s Strong Third Quarter Leads Cate Over Rio Hondo

Marko Pilso opened up a tight game by knocking down four three-pointers in the third quarter as Cate survived a tight matchup against Rio Hondo at the Ojai Valley Classic, 57-49.

Pilso led all scorers with 22 points.

Up by three at halftime, the Rams put up 21 total points in the third quarter to open up the game.

Rio Hondo's Mikey Tsogt entered the day averaging more than 25 points per game, and a strong day defensively for Chase McCaw held him to 20.

"I credit a great defensive effort by Chase who was able to slow down Tsogt in the 2nd quarter not allowing him a bucket and making him earn every point in the 4th quarter," said Cate coach Andrew Gil. 

Mason Mackall was just shy of a double-double with nine points and nine rebounds. Andy McHarg and Noah Meyer each contributed seven points for the Rams, while Bruce Huerta added five.

Cate improved to 2-1 on the season with the win, and next take on Coast Union as the Ojai Valley Classic continues.

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!
