Road-Weary San Marcos Comes Up Short at Calabasas

San Marcos completed a week of road games with a 76-73 loss at Calabasas in non-league boys basketball game on Friday.

The Royals fought back from a 14-point deficit in the second half and took the lead, but Calabasas came up with some big plays down the stretch to win the game.

It was the third road game of the week for San Marcos after posting wins at Pioneer Valley in Santa Maria and Colony in Ontario.

"We traveled over 750 miles this week due to the Thomas Fire," coach Landon Boucher said. "We were supposed to play our Pioneer Valley game and this Calabasas game at home, but couldn’t due to the fire."

The Santa Barbara Unified School District kept its schools closed for all events for the remainder of the winter break.

San Marcos fell to 9-3 on the season while Calabasas improved to 9-2.

“I’m proud of our guys' effort," Boucher said. "Calabasas is a really good team; after the week we had, to play them that tough showed we have heart.”

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!
