BBK: Busch, Brace power Dons past Righetti

Nick Busch poured in 25 points and Bolden Brace added 23, leading Santa Barbara High to an 83-48 romp over Righetti in the Central Coast Classic on Monday in Santa Maria.

It was the second straight game the Dons scored in the 80s.

Santa Barbara roared out to an early lead and never looked back.

Ben Clay added eight points “and did a great job defensively and on the rebounds,” said assistant coach Joseph Bregante.

JM Cage and Ben Brown each tallied six points.

After playing two games in the Santa Maria area, the Dons head south Tuesday to begin play in the Simi Valley Tournament. They open against Valencia at 8 p.m.
