SBCC Women Blown Out by Sixth-Ranked Ventura

Ventura started fast on Saturday night and never looked back in a 95-43 women’s basketball win over SBCC at the Athletic Event Center.

The Pirates, ranked No. 6 in Southern Cal, led 23-3 after one quarter and 48-13 at the half.

Katie Campbell scored 20 points with eight rebounds and five assists for the Pirates (20-5, 5-0 WSC North), who've reeled off 13 straight wins. Destinee King tallied 19 points, nine rebounds and five steals for the Vaqueros (12-9, 2-3), who've dropped their last three games.

Santa Barbara made just 1-of-16 shots in the opening quarter and Ventura hit 10-21 (47.6 percent). For the game, the Pirates doubled up the Vaqueros in shooting (53.7 to 24.6 percent) and rebounds (60-29). Ventura hit 5-18 from 3-point land while the Vaqueros were 0-13.

“We did not play well tonight and we’re going through some adversity,” said 13th-year head coach Sandrine Krul. “As the saying goes, ‘Adversity builds character!’

“Back to the drawing board on Monday we’ll get back to our program philosophy of ‘2 and 2’ (stop 2 points, make 2 points).”

SBCC will play a nonconference game at L.A. Pierce on Thursday at 5 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!
