San Marcos Falls Into Buena Trap Early, Loses 57-31

San Marcos had trouble with Buena's trapping defense early in the game, fell behind and suffered a 57-31 girls basketball loss in a Channel League game at Buena on Wednesday.

"Their trap really hurt us in the first quarter, but then we settled down and did some good things," San Marcos coach Chris Hantgin said.

Milan McGary scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Royals.

"Milan was able to find some gaps to drive, but we need to continue to work on our post play. They are working hard and we need to just keep at it," said Hantgin.

Buena got 20 points from Jelly Orozco and 15 from Lailah Teasdale. The Bulldogs finished third in the league at 4-4

San Marcos hosts Ventura on Thursday in a make-up game and the last regular season game of the year.

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!
