Natalie Whiting Has a Big Game in Bishop Diego Win over Villanova

Natalie Whiting scored a career-high 18 points, leading Bishop Diego's girls basketball team to a 53-29 victory over Villanova on Tuesday.

Whiting was a perfect 5 for 5 from the free-throw line, helping the Cardinals improve to 6-2 in the Frontier League.

"Natalie and Veronica Morones attacked the basket aggressively," said coach Jeff Burich.

Kylie Koeper had 13 points and dished out six assists, Anne Bentajado scored 10 points and Andrea Castellanos pulled down 14 rebounds in the win.

The Cardinals outscored the Wildcats 16-6 in the second quarter to open up a 26-12 lead by halftime.

"We ran the court well in the second half and got some easy baskets in transition. Kylie did a great job pushing the ball and finding open players," said Burich.

The Cardinals (8-10 overall) play host to Cate on Thursdsay at 7 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!
