Day 2 Games and Day 3 Predictions

Day 2 Games:

Los Osos 58 Mission Hills 50

Los Osos jumped out to a 35-17 halftime lead. But in the second half, Mission Hills fought back and put 25 points in the 4th quarter to pull within 8 at the end. Mission’s leading scorer Jeremy Ford had 19 of his 34 points in the 4th quarter. Kendall Williams, the UCLA-bound guard fresh off a 27 point performance last night, had 26 points for Los Osos, who played the majority of their bench players in the second half. 

Bishop Montgomery 92 LACES 52

The Knights, led by Minnesota recruit Justin Cobbs who initiated the offense, jumped out to a 24-9 1st quarter lead and never looked back. Montgomery had 5 players in double digits, led by Richard Solomon with 13 points. Sean Butler had 10 points for LACES.

Sylmar 70  St. Joseph’s 47

Interestingly enough, UCLA commit Tyler Honeycutt did not start and sat the entire 1st quarter for what would appear to be disciplinary reasons. The Spartans’ Gary Hicks leads all scorers with 15, and Honeycutt scored 12 points in about 2 quarters of action. Zach Perron led St. Joe’s with 10 points. Sylmar controlled the game with ease and took the opportunity to rest their starters for the 4th quarter.

Campbell Hall 72 Campolindo 54

Campbell Hall sophomore Austin McBroom led all scorers with 17 points and Colorado-bound senior Keegan Hornbuckle added 12. Kellen Ito and Chris Dyer had 11 and 10 points, respectively, for Campolindo who competed early on but couldn’t stay with the Vikings.

Taft 71 Mission Prep 28 

The Toreadors, the #43 team in the country, played a solid defensive game the entire night. Using their incredible team speed they were able to anticipate on defense and get easy fast-break buckets. UNLV recruit Justin Hawkins led all scorers with 13 points and CSU Northridge bound forward Terran Carter controlled the paint all night. Junior Kevin Laird led the host Royals with 10 points.

Day 3 Predictions:

Disclaimer for all predictions: The views expressed in this blog does not necessarily represent the opinions of the directors of the MPCC. 

El Dorado 74 St Joseph’s 47

Marcus Moreland, Charles White, Mitrell Clark will lead the scoring for the Sundevils. I expect them all to be over 15 points and use their team athleticism to beat the Knights in transition. Zach Perron will likely lead the scoring for the Knights inside with Jacob Cano doing some damage from the perimeter.

Mission Hills 70 LACES 60

With another team effort led by top scorer Jeremy Ford (projected: 30 points), I expect the Grizzlies to prevail over the Unicorns in part because of their size advantage. Sean Butler will run the show again for LACES but it will be a close game because I don’t expect the size differential to be as much of a factor. I just feel Mission Hills is a more disciplined team.

Bishop O’Connell 76 Sylmar 65

The Knights are the #47 team in the nation, led by UNC bound junior PG Kendall Marshall. They have already upset two other Top 50 teams this year. I expect this to be a good game early because both teams are filled with great athletes, but O’Connell will pull away in the end because of their discipline and team play, which UCLA’s Tyler Honeycutt and his Sylmar squad can’t match.

Los Osos 68 Campbell Hall 66 (Upset)

Kendall Williams shows up big here with 30 points. Frankly I wasn’t overly impressed with Campbell Hall’s win last night and if Keegan Hornbuckle and Deuce Johnson don’t show up to play they will lose this one. McBroom will get his points but uses up plenty of shots. It’ll be a close one in my opinion.

Fremont 72 Campolindo 61

Campolindo impressed me with how they stuck with Campbell Hall and this game should be closer. But I still expect Tony Freeland to have a big game (15 points and 10 boards) for Fremont and pull away with this one.

Taft 77 Sheldon 65 (better game than most expect)

Powerhouse Taft will play an up and coming Sheldon team with a dynamic roster. I expect another well-rounded defensive effort from the Toreadors but they will have to shut down all the Huskies athletes led by super sophomore Darius Nelson. Sheldon does have a size advantage but Taft is so fast and physical that it wont matter. Taft’s Justin Hawkins will lead the team but Michael Williams will cash in from the outside again. 

Mission Prep vs Rio Americano (No Prediction, Conflict of Interest)

Kentwood 70 Bishop Montgomery 64

I really know nothing about Kentwood other than they may have the most dominant big man in the country. Bishop Montgomery has beat up on 2 much weaker opponents, so we’ll see what they are made of here.

Dunk Contest will be tomorrow around 10 pm

 

Peace.
