Luke Zuffelato was held under 20 points for the first time this season, and the Santa Barbara High boys basketball team suffered from cold shooting in a 65-35 loss to Westlake at the Pacifica Tournament in Oxnard.
“It definitely was not our night as we were ice cold from the field and the foul line,” said coach Corey Adam. “It did not help that there were a lot of non-basketball plays the officials let go. We were glad we got out of that game without anyone getting hurt.”
Zuffelato scored 17 points in the loss.
Jack Holdren gave the Dons (4-4) some good minutes off the bench as he returned from injury.
“Getting Jack back up to speed will be a key for us in the next week or so,” said Adam.
Westlake (4-2) was led by Austin Maziasz with a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds. Danny Bay added 11 points and grabbed 13 boards.
