Santa Barbara Girls Stumble Against Camarillo

Santa Barbara High fell behind 22-14 in the first quarter and suffered a 72-51 girls basketball loss to Camarillo in the semifinals of the West Coast Holiday Festival at Burbank-Burroughs on Thursday.

The Dons got 24 points from guard Cassandra Gordon, but no other player scored in double figures. Kimberly Gebhardt had eight points and eight rebounds, and Kristen Sullivan scored eight points.

Trailing 41-27 at halftime, the Dons were looking to make a comeback in third quarter.

"We committed 10 turnovers in the third quarter," Santa Barbara coach Andrew Butcher said. "We were hoping for a comeback and that didn't help us."

Camarillo outscored the Dons 17-8 in the quarter and went up 51-35.

"They shoot the ball very well," Butcher said of the Scorpions. "They are a very deep team. They played 12 players. They're an experienced group and shoot the ball very well. They're the best shooting team we've played all year."

Santa Barbara plays Glendale in the third-place game at 4:30 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!
