SANTA BARBARA — It is called the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions, but Ventura County teams used this year’s event to reinforce how strong girls basketball is a few miles to the south.

Buena and Ventura met in the championship game of the Gold Division on Friday night while Rio Mesa and Pacifica squared off in the final of the Green Division at Santa Barbara High.

Behind 24 points from senior guard Meghan Shank, Ventura held off Buena’s fourth-quarter comeback to beat the Bulldogs 57-54 and capture the Gold Division title.

In the preceding game, Rio Mesa defeated Pacifica 59-42 to capture the Green Division title.
