Mission Prep 54 Pioneer Valley 31

Pioneer Valley put up a quality effort, but in the end couldn’t hang with Mission Prep in this mid-day matchup. The Royals played their classic style of high pressure defense combined with up tempo offense, and Kevin Laird was the game high with 17.

Birmingham 63 St. Joseph’s 51

A foul-ridden (45 total) game throughout, Birmingham finally pulled away with a couple of big tre balls. Corey Randall, 13 points, led a balanced Patriot attack. Renee Reyes controlled the game in the 4th quarter with his ball handling on the press break. Jacob Cano, with 18 points, and Nolan Adlesh, with 12 points, led the Knights in defeat. Birmingham moves on to the Elite Division Championship game.

Ballou 52 Pasadena 51

The Knights were up by as many as 15 in this National Semifinal game. Ballou’s Christian Leach, 15 points, fouled out with 6 minutes left in the 4th quarter. That’s when Pasadena mounted a furious comeback. Guards Steven Shares and George Toyma each had 12 points for Pasadena. Chris Bridges, who was held scoreless in the 1st half, got white-hot from 3 point land at the tail-end of the 4th quarter. Bridges finished with 13 points, 12 of which came off of 4th quarter treys. All four of his 3-pointers were contested shots from the corner. Toyma also hit a contested three to pull Pasadena closer. In the end, some questionable calls, some questionable no-calls, some decent charity stripe shooting by Ballou sealed the Knights’ victory. Donte Thomas also had 12 points in the win. Ballou advances to the National Championship.

Rio Americano 59 Eldorado 51

Abe Leibovitz, with 8 points, and Zach Nathanson, with 19 points, once again guided the Raiders through a tough game, this time versus a very young but athletic Eldorado squad. Juniors Curtis Stewart and Ariel Bagget, each with 14 points, piloted the SunDevils in defeat, bringing them from down 12 although to within 3 before eventually losing it. Rio Americano moves on to the Elite Championship game tomorrow.

Taft 72 Campbell Hall 43

The Toreadors continue to steamroll through the opposition here at the Classic. USC signee Bryce Jones stayed hot on offense with 17 points and Texas-bound junior forward DeAndre Daniels added 14 points. Taft was up 19-2 at the end of the 1st quarter and continuously ravaged Campbell Hall in transition and on the boards. Austin McBroom and Deuce Johnson each had a hard-earned 14 points in defeat. Taft plays tomorrow in the National Championship vs. Ballou. Quite the showdown.
