SBCC Women Get Defensive in 48-38 Win at Hancock Tourney

SBCC put the clamps on Santa Ana’s offense on Friday in a 48-38 women’s basketball victory in the consolation semifinals of the Lady Bulldog Classic at Hancock College.

The 38 points and 26.3% shooting were both season lows for the Vaquero defense.

Aaliyah Pauling scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds to spark Santa Barbara (7-2) to a win just 18 hours after a 10-point loss to Glendale.

Meagan Moore added 10 points and three steals for the Vaqueros, who jumped out to a 14-0 lead and took a 29-17 lead at intermission. Pauling and Moore hit 3-pointers to open the game and Jennae Mayberry capped the 14-0 burst with a layup at the 6:42 mark.

SBCC forced 11 turnovers in the first quarter.

“We shot a lot better today and we converted on our steals,” said 15th-year coach Sandrine Krul. “This was a great team win after a short turnaround.

“We did a very good job of rebounding and when we defensively rebound, it makes us run on offense.”

The Vaqueros outshot the Dons 32.1 to 26.3% and outrebounded them 39-36. Lauren Noggle pulled down eight rebounds and Lei Talaro had a season-high six assists

Santa Barbara extended the lead to 15 points (34-19) on a triple by Pauling and a layup by Mayberry in the first minute of the third period. The Dons (3-7) couldn’t get closer than eight the rest of the way.

The Vaqueros will battle L.A. Harbor (5-5) for the consolation title on Saturday at 11 a.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!
