Day 4: Tournament Championships!

Here we go with Day 4.

Game 1: Campbell Hall 71 vs. San Luis Obispo 60

The dynamic duo of Holiday (#11, pictured below) and Huff combined for 59 of the Vikings’ points in their battle against local product San Luis Obispo. Gritty guard Matt Moore had 14 points for the Tigers who were up after the 1st quarter but couldn’t hold off the potent offensive attack of Campbell Hall.

Terrance Smith (#44, pictured below), once again, was the leading scorer for Dillard 14 points as the Panthers sped away from the Generals after a fairly even 1st quarter.

Game 3: Miramonte 53 vs. Bretnwood 52

In this consolation thriller, the Matadors were down by 10 points entering the 4th quarter but clawed their way all the way back in this one. Sophomore wing Joey Goodreault (#24, pictured below), 15 points, drilled a transition 15-footer along the baseline with 2.7 seconds left to put Miramonte ahead for good. Forward Kiran Shastri added 13 points (10-10 from the charity stripe) for the Matadors. Brentwood’s junior post player Leland King scored 20+ points for the 4th consecutive game at this year’s tournament, finishing with 24 today. The Eagles appeared to have a commanding lead for the majority of this game, but they couldn’t quite put Miramonte away. Quality looks at the basket and some timely turnovers keyed the Matadors’ comeback.

Game 4: Righetti 58  vs. San Joaquin Memorial 56

Righetti had three scorers in double figures led by sweet-shooting two guard Hunter Walker (#23, pictured below) with 18 points. The Warriors packed their defense in against 7′ center Robert Upshaw and made enough shots down the stretch to claim this victory. SJM’s Upshaw still managed 21 big points along with several rebounds and blocks.

Game 5: JW North 68 vs. Santa Clara 39 (Elite 3rd Place Game)

JW North outmuscled Santa Clara from the tip in this one. Sophomore guard DeShawn Taylor (#23, pictured below) piled up 18 points while big men Dorian Butler and Aaron Peck contributed 12 points apiece. Santa Clara couldn’t quite match up with the physical, athletic squad from Riverside as their leading scorer, DeAndre Jones, was held to 7 points. JW North claims 3rd place in the Elite Division.

Game 6: Seattle Prep (WA) 53 vs. Desert Vista (AZ) 40 (National 3rd Place Game)

Post man Mitch Brewe (#21, pictured below) fought his way in the interior for 28 points and a handful of boards. Even thought star junior wing DJ Fenner did not play, Seattle Prep outplayed a very good Desert Vista squad. Multitalented forward Danny Powell had 15 points in defeat for the Thunder. Seattle Prep claims 3rd place in the National Division.

For the host Royals, wing Connor Woolpert had a great shooting night totaling 18 points while forward Zach Allmon finished with 13 points and 6 rebounds. Mission Prep could never recover after Cypress Bay caught fire from the field in the 2nd quarter. Cypress Bay wins the Elite Division crown.

Game 8: Taft 58 vs. La Costa Canyon 52 (National Division Final)

LCC jumped out to a big 12-point halftime lead with a flurry of surprising fastbreak points. Taft ratcheted up the defensive intensity considerably in the 2nd half, closing up the halftime deficit in the blink of an eye. Quality free throw shooting down the stretch ensured Taft’s impressive comeback victory. The Mavericks’ super two guard Matt Shrigley battled against an incredibly athletic defense for 19 points while guard David Travers impressed with 13 points of his own. Forward Brandon Perry, the National Division MVP, was a beast inside for Taft with 16 points and 12 boards. Lanky swingman Anthony January led all scorers with 20 points tonight. He and Shrigley went head-to-head all night long.
