The Dos Pueblos boys basketball team defeated Santa Ynez 70-57 in the Varsity Carpinteria finals Wednesday.
The game was part of the Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic at Carpinteria High School.
Santa Ynez Coach Walter Tyler discussed the loss in an email to the News-Press.
“Team made too many small mistakes in passing and defensive intensity,” Tyler said. “This was a good test for our upcoming league match-ups and shows us items we need to fix for our upcoming games.”
But the coach pointed to two of his athletes who soared on the court.
“Congrats to Diego Torres and Jackson Ollenburger for both winning all tourney awards!” Tyler said.
Ollenburger led the Pirates with 21 points, 2 rebounds and 3 steals.
Caleb Cassidy made 16 points and 12 rebounds.
Torres made 6 points and 3 rebounds.
