Versatile Cassandra Gordon Comes Up Big for Santa Barbara

Behind a strong performance from Cassandra Gordon, the Santa Barbara girls basketball team handled Pioneer Valley with ease in its final game at the Brian Ayer Classic at Lompoc High, 66-39.

"We got back on track," said Santa Barbara coach Andrew Butcher of the Dons' first win after two losses to start the season.

Gordon was all over the place, scoring 18 points while dishing out nine assists, hauling in seven rebounds, getting three steals, and blocking two shots.

Kristen Sullivan added 14 points and four rebounds as the Dons held a 50-25 lead after three quarters.

Sophia Torres also turned in a strong game scoring fourteen points on 7-of-10 shooting and pulling in eight rebounds.

The Dons had their best game shooting the ball, making 42 percent of their field-goal attempts (30-71).

Anais Jimenez grabbed a team-high 13 rebounds, including six on the offensive glass.

Santa Barbara (1-2) returns to action Wednesday against Cabrillo in a first-round game in the Gold Coast Classic at 4:30 p.m. at San Marcos. The Dons lost to Cabrillo, 44-25, in their second game at the Ayer Classic.

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!
