SBCC Men Suffer Two-Point Loss in Overtime

Deric Daniels made a layup with 11 seconds left on Thursday night and SBCC misfired on a 3-pointer and a 15-footer, allowing L.A. Southwest to pull out a 72-70 overtime win in the opening round of the Southwest Intensity Classic men’s basketball tournament.

Dejon Jackson poured in 21 points and grabbed a season-high 17 rebounds for the Vaqueros (1-9). Jackson hit 9-of-17 from the field but was just 3-10 from the free-throw line. D’Lano Beckles topped the Cougars (4-6) with 17 points and seven rebounds.

The Vaqueros struggled from the charity stripe, making only 10 of 24. Southwest was slightly better at 10-20.

Aaron Mejia, a freshman left-hander from Montebello, tossed in 15 points and Donald Grant recorded season highs with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Drayten Howell had nine points, seven assists and four rebounds.

The Vaqueros will take on L.A. Valley on Friday at 3 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!
