Streaking Chargers Remain Undefeated in League

Dos Pueblos battles to 50-43 home win over Buena, prepares for showdown with San Marcos.

The Dos Pueblos boys’ basketball team remained undefeated in the Channel League with a 50-43 home victory over Buena on Friday. The Chargers improved to 5-0 in league, 17-7 overall, and have won 10 of their last 11 games.

Friday’s game started as if it might be a rout as the Chargers raced out to a 14-1 lead. But Dos Pueblos struggled to score in the second quarter, foul trouble damaged the offense, and in the end, the Chargers had to rely on their familiar fomula to eke out the victory.

That offensive formula is a lot of Sean Park (23 points and 11 rebounds), a good chunk of Ryan Beall (nine points, eight rebounds and seven assists), and just enough help off the bench (Evan Munoz had six points and Robert Vickers five). Overall, Friday’s winning formula came from the Chargers’ defense, which held an opponent to 50 points or under for the eighth time this season.

Next up for Dos Pueblos is a date at the Thunderhut against San Marcos on Wednesday.

Will Beall is a Dos Pueblos parent.

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!
