No. 3 Foothill runs past SBCC, 91-66

Top-ranked Owls' swarming defense takes toll on Vaqueros.

SBCC’s Vaqueros, making their first home appearance in 55 days, faced a big challenge in their final nonconference game Friday at Sports Pavilion.

Foothill, rated No. 1 in Northern California, forced numerous turnovers with a swarming defense, leading to a multitude of layups. SBCC (8-10) cut a 41-28 halftime deficit to nine points (51-42) on back-to-back jumpers by freshman Alison Turley. But the Owls (16-2) responded with a 16-4 run that boosted the lead to 67-46 and propelled them to their 11th-straight win, 91-66.

Sophomore guard Ari Hendrix-Roach tallied 14 of her game-high 25 points in the second half for SBCC and Brittany Collins added 12.

The Vaqueros open defense of their Western State Conference North title Wednesday at Oxnard before returning home Jan. 12 to take on Hancock. Both games start at 5:30 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!
