The Santa Barbara boys basketball team pulled off a tough 69-62 basketball victory at non-league opponent Rio Mesa on Wednesday.

Ben Brown led the Dons (10-7) with 23 while Davis Kim added 12 points in his debut. Jeremiah Nicholson and Morgan Peus each put up nine points in the win.

"Although we didn't play our best game we made big plays when we needed them and managed to grind out a good road victory," said Santa Barbara coach Joe Bregante.

The Dons received a boost from Taylor Padilla, who returned to game action after missing time due to illness.

Santa Barbara travels south to take on Oxnard on January 11 and will begin Channel League play on January 14 by hosting Buena.

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!
