Chase Avery put in a good night's work for the Providence boys basketball team, helping the Patriots defeat Newbury Park Adventist, 59-50, in a CIF-SS 5AA Division second-round playoff game on Saturday at SBCC's Sports Pavilion.

Avery scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds. The Patriots also got strong games from Evan Boger, Nick Butler and Caleb Johnson. Boger scored 13 points, grabbed eight rebounds and handed out four assists; Butler had 13 points and five assists, and Johnson had nine points, five assists and four steals.

Johnson and Butler also combined to contain Duane Darrett of Newbury Park Adventist. He came into the game as the leading scorer in Ventura County and was held to just five field goals.

"Newbury Park was averaging over 70 points a game coming in and is a really good offensive rebounding team. That was where the game was won. We did a great job of contesting shots and finishing possessions," said Providence coach Steve Stokes.

The Patriots (21-2) will next play in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night agaisnst Foothill Tech at Ventura College. 

This is the third consecutive trip to the quarterfinals for Providence.

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!
