SBCC Women Beat Hancock for Coach Sandrine Krul’s 250th Win

SBCC took control with a 35-20 advantage in the second and third quarters on Tuesday night in the Sports Pavilion and then held on for a 60-55 women's basketball victory over Hancock.

It was the 250th win for head coach Sandrine Krul, who's 250-189 in her 15th season. The Vaqueros are 15-11 overall and 3-6 in the WSC North. Hancock is 10-14 and 2-7.

Aaliyah Pauling, a sophomore guard from Spokane, Wash., scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds in her last Vaquero home appearance. Meagan Moore added 16 points and three steals.

“We played like a team and played hard even when Hancock was making their comeback,” said Krul. “It was a great team effort. I was so proud of the way we bounced back after the Cuesta loss and moved forward. That’s what MTXE is all about.”

The Vaqueros trailed 20-17 after a quarter, then won the 2nd period 18-7 for a 35-27 halftime lead. They also took the third quarter 19-13, expanding the margin to 14 points.

The Bulldogs started the fourth on a 13-3 run and pulled within four, 57-53, on Danielle Morgan’s free throw with 48 seconds left. Jennae Mayberry hit a free throw with 0:29 on the clock and Maaria Jaakkola added two more at the 11-second mark for a 60-53 lead.

Morgan paced Hancock with 22 points and 12 rebounds.

The Vaqueros knocked down 82.4% of their free throws (14-17) and the Bulldogs made just 58.8% (10-17).

SBCC outshot the visitors 40.0% to 34.4% and forced 23 turnovers, leading to 29 points.

Santa Barbara will wrap up the season on Friday when it travels to Oxnard for a 5 p.m. game. 

In the men's game,  Hancock built a 48-19 halftime then shot 60% in the second half of a 99-45 win over SBCC.

The Bulldogs (22-5, 7-2) outshot the Vaqueros 52.6% to 23.3% and outrebounded them 65-24. Hancock moved into a three-way tie for first in the WSC North with Cuesta and Ventura, thanks to Cuesta’s 85-65 win over Ventura.

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!
