SBCC Women Prevail in Home Opener

Destinee King collected 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists on Friday night, leading SBCC to a 79-68 women’s basketball win over Fullerton in its home debut.

Jada Clark had a perfect shooting night, scoring 12 points on 5-5 field-goal efficiency and 2-2 free throws. She also grabbed eight rebounds on the first day of the SBCC Crossover Tournament.

After trailing 38-35 at intermission, the Vaqueros (1-2) used a 19-8 third-quarter surge to take control. The Vaqueros shot a season-high 45 percent and outrebounded the Hornets 40-21.

“We played like a team,” said coach Sandrine Krul. “We ran our press, our defense and most importantly, we were sharing the ball and hitting players in the right spots. I’m so proud of them.”
The Vaqueros’ five starters all reached double-figures in points. Alyssa Cosio had 11 while Stella Dulay and Jocelin Petatan chipped in with 10 apiece.

Trailing 42-37 early in the third quarter, Cosio hit a jumper to ignite a 15-2 run. Destiny Renteria capped it with a 3-pointer, giving the Vaqueros a 52-44 lead with 1:48 to go in the third.

Santa Barbara forced 31 turnovers while commiting just 22.

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!
