Next weekend’s regional finals, at USC’s Galen Center, are set:
Long Beach Poly 80, Summit 53
Fresno Clovis West 61, Santa Monica 57
Brea Olinda 68, Oakhurst Yosemite 46
Mater Dei 70, Hanford 61
Bishop Amat 58, Santa Margarita 48
Inglewood 85, Spring Valley Mount Miguel 60
Harvard-Westlake 78, Santa Maria St. Joseph 56
Bishop Montgomery 61, La Jolla Country Day 54
St. Anthony 49, St. Bernard 26
Montclair Prep 52, View Park 45
The winners of tonight’s games in each division will play each other next Saturday for the right to play the Northern California division winners for the state championship, March 26-27 in Bakersfield.
I predict Long Beach Poly in Division I, and I have no idea who will win Division II. Brea has been kryptonite for Mater Dei the last two times they’ve met. But everyone know that if luck is to prove itself yay or nay, it’s on the third try.
In Division III, Inglewood just beat Amat a week or so ago. Unless Amat is usually way better than they were then, I predict an Inglewood victory.
Harvard-Westlake will crush Montgomery in Division IV just like they did last weekend in the CIF championship.
Montclair Prep and St. Anthony is a toss up for Division V. I’d say Montclair, but St. Anthony has a diehard coach.
The hot hand of the night belonged to Inglewood forward/center DeAjanae Scurry, who had 35 points, 15 rebounds and five steals in the Sentinels’ victory.
Here’s next weekend’s schedule.
