Santa Barbara High clinched a share of the Channel League girls basketball title with a 61-31 win at Dos Pueblos on Wednesday night.

The Dons tied for the title with Ventura at 7-1. They'll now enter the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs.

Alondra Jimenez had a big night for the Dons, recording a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds, and adding five steals and three assists. 

Athena Saragoza scored 12 points, Cassandra Gordon had eight and Kristen Sullivan chipped in seven.

The Dons scored points on their fast break to open up a  35-16 lead by halftime.

Dos Pueblos went three minutes without scoring in the third quarter, while Jimenez went off for 10 points in the quarter.

Dos Pueblos finished 0-8 in league and 4-11 on the season.

“This was a challenging year for us,” DP coach Phil Sherman said. “No returning starters, two beginners and a freshman playing significant minutes. Plus, earth, wind and fire.”

He added: “This team and the parents are wonderful people to work with. I enjoyed this season despite the many obstacles.”

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!
