Day 4 Games

Cathedral 48 Edison 45

The Phantoms entered the 4th quarter down 3 to Edison, but outscored the Tigers 19-13 in the final period. Frankie Eteuti played with 4 fouls from the 1st quarter on, finishing with 12 points (7 coming in the 4th). Andrew Clark came up big for Cathedral leading them with 18 points. Sweet-shooting sophomore guard Jordan Batts had 22 points for Edison in the loss. Cathedral takes 7th, while Edison settles for 8th in the National Division.

SLO 44 Pioneer Valley 31

Underdog Pioneer Valley kept it close for much of this area matchup, but SLO High’s full court press was too much for the Panthers, as the SLO pulled away in the 4th quarter, and finished with a 10 point victory. Junior Center Sean Mullen had a big game for the Tigers, leading all scorers with 22 points. SLO takes 7th, while Pioneer Valley settles for 8th in the Elite Division.

Campolindo 52 Mission Prep 35

Mission looked flat from the start, and Camplindo captitalized on the Royal’s turnovers, as they pulled away in the second quarter to lead by 10 at the half, and stretched it to as many as 18 in the second half. A mix of skilled ball handling, fundamental passing, and efficient shooting from the Cougars overcame Mission, who lacked their typical tenacious defense. Kevin Laird scored 12 for the Royals, and Carl King had a game high 13 for Campolindo. The Cougars take 5th and the Royals take 6th in the Elite Division.

Sylmar 68 Washington Prep 61

Sylmar really shot well from deep in this game, and finished just strong as they started, something that haven’t really been able to do. Incredibly balanced scoring as Sylmar had four scorers in double digits, led by Bito Cruz with 20 points. The Spartans hit eleven total three-pointers (6 of them by Cruz). Washington Prep had five scorers in double digits, almost unheard of in high school ball, led once again by Michaelyn Scott who had 16 points. In the National Division, Sylmar takes 5th place and Washington takes 6th.

St. Joseph’s 62 Eldorado 46

Bebe Vargas went off tonight totaling 26 points, the tourney single game high, in the Knights’ victory. St. Joe’s got off to a great start with plenty of transition buckets, and Eldorado just couldn’t come back. Ariel Bagget led the Devils with 15 points in defeat. In the Elite Division, St. Joseph’s takes 3rd place and Eldorado takes 4th.

Campbell Hall 55 Pasadena 46

McBroom and Johnson (22 points apiece) combined for 44 of Campbell Hall’s 55 total points. The guard-forward tandem was very impressive all game for the Vikings. Tyler Barber had 17 points, while guard Chris Bridges chipped in 15 points for Pasadena High in the loss. Campbell Hall takes 3rd and Pasadena takes 4th in the National Division.

Birmingham 69 Rio Americano 40

Elite Division MVP Sahdi Odu led Birmingham in this one with a game-high 25 points. Forward  Angel Guitierrez came up huge with 21 points of his own with some strong shooting and good work inside. The Patriots did a good job limiting Abe Leibovitz (5 points) and Zach Nathanson’s (9 points) scoring impact in this one. Masson Prowse was the Raiders’ high scorer with 11 points. Birmingham wins the Elite Division, as Rio takes 2nd.

Taft 65 Ballou 62

National Division MVP DeAndre Daniels had 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 7 blocks. Pierson Williams had a game high 19 points, while Bryce Jones chipped in with 12 points before fouling out. Donte Thomas led Ballou with 19 points as well, and Christian Leach came up big with 18 of his own. This game was back and forth all night, with free throw shooting playing a big part, until Taft finally pulled away in the end. It was an “Instant Classic” as they say. Taft takes the National Division championship and Ballou takes 2nd. A great tournament overall.

I’ll have plenty of more analysis in the next few days. Thanks all. I went 20-7 on predictions this year (although 2-5 on the last day).
