SBCC Can’t Handle Long Beach City College

Breamon Richard hit 5-9 from 3-point land and scored 22 points on Friday, leading Long Beach City College to a 65-47 win over SBCC in the consolation semifinals of the Wild West Shootout men’s basketball tournament at West L.A.

Tyler Dees added 18 points and nine rebounds for the Vikings (2-6), who hit 7-19 from 3-point range while the Vaqueros (2-6) were 0-15. LBCC led 32-23 at the half, then opened the second half on a 16-4 run to go up by 21 with 10:53 to play.

Robert Hutchins led SBCC with 20 points, seven rebounds, five steals and three assists. Ben Clay, a freshman forward from Santa Barbara High, had 12 points and nine rebounds.

The Vaqueros went on a 17-5 run and pulled within 10 (57-47) on a jumper by Dayten Howell with 3:23 remaining but couldn’t get any closer.

Santa Barbara will host the 44th annual SBCC Classic on Thursday, Dec. 8 when they take on College of the Desert at 7 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!
