SBCC Women Get Defensive in Win Over Cuesta

Defense was the word on Saturday night as SBCC held Cuesta to 26 points in the first three quarters of a 59-47 women’s basketball win at the Sports Pavilion.

SBCC outscored Cuesta 29-18 in the middle two quarters while evening their records at 11-11 overall and 3-3 in the WSC North.

Holly Barrera paced the Vaqueros’ balanced attack with 14 points and nine rebounds. Sophia Torres hit 6-7 field goals and notched a season-high 14 points off the bench.

Aaliyah Pauling collected 13 points, seven rebounds, six assists and five steals. Courtney Barba, the WSC North scoring leader, topped Cuesta (9-11, 1-5) with 16 points.

“I thought our defense was the difference,” said Vaquero coach Sandrine Krul. “We came up with key stops when Cuesta was on a run in the second and third quarters.

“I was really proud of the way Sophia and Kaysie Back stepped up off the bench. Sophia scored because Kaysie was moving without the ball and that allowed Sophia to go to work in the paint.”

 The Vaqueros will host Oxnard on Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the Coaches vs. Cancer game.

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!
