Santa Barbara Basketball Holiday Classic Moved to Westlake, Chatsworth

The Santa Barbara High boys basketball Holiday Classic scheduled for Dec. 27-30 has been moved to Westlake and Chatsworth high schools, Dons’ assistant coach Joe Bregante said.

The tournament along with all other athletic events scheduled at schools in the Santa Barbara Unified School District were either cancelled or moved because of the Thomas Fire.

Bregante said that several Santa Barbara players and coaches “were displaced due to mandatory evacuations” during the fire.

The Dons have played just two games. The fire forced them to pull out of the Simi Valley Tournament and cancelled the Carpinteria Tournament they were scheduled to play.

The Santa Barbara Holiday Classic will include 10 teams: Santa Barbara, Bishop Diego, Thousand Oaks, Chatsworth, Buena, Channel Islands, Westlake, Apple Valley, Flintridge Prep and Olympia, Wash.

The Dons open pool play against Olympia on Wed., Dec. 27 at 4 p.m. at Westlake High.

Bishop Diego, which has yet to play a game this season, plays its first game against Westlake at 7 p.m.

The Cardinals and Dons face each other on Thursday at 4 p.m. On Friday, Santa Barbara plays Flintridge Prep at 4 and Bishop takes on Apple Valley at 5:30.

Saturday’s schedule will be determined by pool-play results.

The Santa Barbara girls team also had a pair of tournaments wiped out by the fire: the Gold Coast and the Tournament of Champions. 

The Dons (3-0) will return to the court at the John Burroughs Tournament in Burbank, Dec. 26-30.

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!
