The Santa Barbara girls struggled at home Tuesday, losing a 53-25 Channel League game to Buena.

“Our turnovers consistently hurt us, as well as a general lack of patience on offense and shots,” Dons coach Andrew Butcher said. “Missed free throws were also an issue.”

The Dons fall to 1-6 on the season.

“The coaching was probably as poor as anything, so we will need to be better prepared next game,” Butcher said.
