SBCC Women Suffer Cold-Shooting Night, Lose at Moorpark

SBCC shot a season-low 23 percent on Wednesday and Moorpark took advantage to post a 55-34 WSC North women’s basketball victory.

The Raiders (15-5, 2-1) jumped out to a 16-6 first-quarter lead and opened the second quarter with a 14-0 burst to make it 30-6 with 3:01 to go before halftime. Moorpark led 34-11 at intermission.

The Raiders outshot the Vaqueros 49 to 23 percent and won despite making only 4-of-18 from the free-throw line. Moorpark’s Barbara Rangel, a 6-2 freshman from Ventura High, made 14-17 shots and led all scorers with 28 points and 12 rebounds.

“We’ve held two straight opponents to our philosophy of keeping them in the 50s and we couldn’t score in either game,” said coach Sandrine Krul, whose team has scored 39 and 34 points in its last two games. “We need to figure things out on offense.”

Morgan Giove scored eight of her 10 points in the second half for the Vaqueros (9-10, 1-2) and also had four steals. Aaliyah Pauling, the Vaqueros’ top scorer at 12.8 ppg, was held to one point. She grabbed nine rebounds and SBCC won the board battle 43-40. 

Holly Barrera and Maaria Jaakkola added seven points apiece for the Vaqueros.

Santa Barbara will host first-place and No. 10-ranked Ventura (17-6, 3-0) on Saturday 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!
