Vaqueros Earn 14th Seed in Playoffs

SBCC travels to No. 3 Pasadena on Friday. Hendrix, Collins make first-team All-WSC.

The SBCC women’s basketball team, runner-up in the WSC North, was seeded 14th for the 18-team Southern California Regional and will open the playoffs at No. 3 Pasadena at 7 p.m. Friday.

"We were hoping to get a home game (if they had been seeded 15th) but this is better because now, we don’t have to play in a play-in game," fourth-year coach Sandrine Krul said.

The last four seeds (15 through 18) will play a pair games Wednesday to determine the 15th and 16th seeds.

SBCC (17-13, 9-3) finished second in the WSC North to Ventura. Pasadena (26-5, 6-2), runner-up in the North Division of the South Coast Conference, outscored its opponents by an average of 90-59.

Meanwhile, SBCC sophomores Ari Hendrix and Brittany Collins have been named to the first-team All-WSC North Division squad. Hendrix, a 5-foot-3 point guard from Ventura High, averaged 16.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 3.7 steals while Collins, a 5-foot-10 center, averaged 11.4 points and 9.7 rebounds. Roni Gordon and Jackie Perez, from Santa Barbara High, were honorable mention.

Hendrix also made third-team all-state.

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!
