Ben Brown scored 13 points to lead the Dons (11-8), who fell behind 28-19 at halftime and couldn't muster any sort of comeback. Taylor Padilla and Anthony Trujillo added eight and seven points, respectively, for Santa Barbara.

"I thought we came out and competed well but we made too many mental errors," said Santa Barbara assistant coach Joe Bregante. "I think it was a really good learning experience for us, especially with us beginning league play this Friday."

The Dons host Buena in their Channel League opener.  

Bregante is optimistic the team can compete for the Channel League title. "If we can correct some of the errors that have been plaguing us, we can be a pretty good team," he said.

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!
