Channel League

Ventura 56, Buena 47--Tyler Ebell had 18 points and six assists for Ventura in a Channel League opener at Ventura College. Bryan Easterly had 12 points and 10 rebounds for Ventura (10-7). Buena dropped to 11-6 overall with the loss.  Bryan Easterly and Jason Gruber led Ventura (10-7, 1-0) to a 56-47 victory Friday night at Ventura College in the Channel League opener for both teams. Tyler Ebell, playing in his second game since completing his football season, and Easterly had 18 and 12 points, respectively for Ventura.  Bobby Meyer and Ryan Cobos led Buena with 11 and 10 points, respectively.  Ventura scored the game's first nine points and had an 13-4 margin until back-to-back 3-point field goals by Cobos and Roosevelt Bolden in the closing minutes of the first quarter.  Buena, winner of nine of its last 11 games entering Friday night, cut the deficit to one point early in the second half, thanks to Matt Colton, who scored seven points in a 10-5 run by the Bulldogs.  Colton managed just one point the rest of the game, denied a chance to get the ball repeatedly by Easterly and Gruber.  A crucial officiating call seemed to take the air out of Buena's momentum. With Buena trailing 27-25, Cobos stole the ball in the Ventura backcourt. He drove the Buena lane and made a short jumper. The basket was initially waved off as an official ruled a blocking foul on Ebell. The official reversed his own call when informed the ball had gone in the basket. After Ventura lodged a protest, the officials huddled again and switched to the initial ruling. Ventura responded with an 11-0 run. Buena made it interesting in the game's closing minutes. Cobos and Bobby Meyer made 3-point field goals on consecutive possessions to close the margin to 52-47 with 48 seconds left. For Ventura, whose last five games were each decided by five points or less, this was not what it needed. Trevor Robinson and Ebell each made two free throws in the last 39 seconds to secure the victory.
