Veronica Morones’ Last-Second Basket Lifts Bishop Diego Over Cate

Veronica Morones scored with 9.3 seconds remaining to put the Bishop Diego girls basketball team up 38-37 over Cate on Thursday, and Andrea Castellanos blocked a shot with 1.2 seconds on the clock to seal the victory.

Cate took a 25-19 lead into halftime and a 37-32 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but Bishop (9-10, 7-2) battled back, finishing the game on a 6-0 run. 

Kylie Koeper notched a double-double for the Cardinals, scoring 12 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. Natalie Whiting added 10 points, including six in the third quarter.

"Natalie's scoring really gave us a spark in the 3rd quarter offensively and it helped us pick up our defense in the 2nd half," said Bishop Diego coach Jeff Burich.

Amber Thiery scored 13 to lead Cate, and Elle Smith nearly put up a double-double, notching eight rebounds and 11 points.

Bishop Diego next hosts Thacher on Saturday while Cate hosts Fillmore the same day.

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!
