Korfas scored 19 points on 7 of 12 shooting and had six assists and four rebounds.

Ryan Godges led the Royals with 20 points, knocking down five three-pointers.  Jackson Stormo finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds and Allen addd 10 points. 

The Royals shot 50 percent (25-50) from the floor, including 7 of 14 on three-pointers.

San Marcos improved to 5-0 in league and 18-6 overall. Ventura is 3-3 and 10-10

The Royals don’t have much time to celebrate the victory as they play Ventura again on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Maury Halleck Gym.

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!
