S.D. Section Boys Playoff Update:
Divisions I, II, III, IV & V--(Feb 24, 2000)

We've managed to track down all of the results from the first round of the San Diego playoffs, and even some of the details (not all, but some) and for many of you who follow the message board, this will be old news, but we wanted to put it all in a central location where it can be accessed later.  The San Diego Union-Tribune and the North County Times are really the only traditional media source for those of us who live north of San Diego, but hey, they're better than nothing, right?   We've excerpted their coverage (we hope they won't mind) and put this all in a central archive.  If anyone has any of the results or details of games we're missing, send them in. Thanks.

SCRIPPS RANCH 63, GRANITE HILLS 57-- Amid a talent pool that includes the likes of University of San Diego High's Chris Walton, Lincoln freshman sensation Shawn Davis and St. Augustine's Floyd North, the best kept secret in the Western League this season may well be Matt Vaughn.  Pssst -- the secret's out.  Vaughn, a 6-foot junior guard, scored 27 of his season-high 31 points in the first half and host Scripps Ranch held off Granite Hills 63-57 last night in the opening round of the CIF-San Diego Section Division I boys basketball playoffs.  The Falcons (17-10), who closed the regular season by winning five straight and six of seven, advanced to meet top-seeded San Diego in Friday's quarterfinals.  Granite Hills, which finished third this season in the Grossmont South League, closed out the year at 18-10.  Vaughn, who entered the game averaging 18 points, has failed to score in double figures just twice all season. In last night's affair, he single handedly buried the Eagles in the second quarter, scoring all 18 of the Falcons' points in the quarter to give Scripps Ranch a 36-27 advantage at intermission. Included in the barrage by Vaughn were a trio of three-point baskets that helped lift the Falcons from a 23-23 tie into a 34-25 lead.  As if that weren't enough, Vaughn also collected five of his 10 rebounds in the second quarter.  Included in the Falcons' current win streak are victories over No. 1 Lincoln and No. 5 USDHS, a team once ranked No. 1 in the state in Division III. Scripps Ranch beat the Dons by 20 points.   With Vaughn struggling to find the mark, the Falcons watched a nine-point halftime lead dissolve to 45-41 with one second remaining in the third period.  Enter 5-foot-6 guard Chris Resto, who promptly returned the momentum to the Falcons when he hit a shot from half court at the buzzer.   Granite Hills had three players finish in double figures in scoring, including Jake Patrick (14), Evan Sobczak (13) and David Lee (12), who also pulled down 11 rebounds.   Kellen Winslow added 10 points and nine rebounds for Scripps Ranch.  Granite Hills 14 12 13 18 -- 57 Scripps Ranch 17 20 12 14 -- 63  Granite Hills (18-10) -- Coffey 5, Key 2, Genton 2, Patrick 12, Sobczak 13, Lee 12, Kulbacki 11. Scripps Ranch (17-10) -- Fulk 7, Resto 8, Redfearn 4, Schmidt 1, Vaughn 31, Winslow 10, Young 2. Three-point goals -- Vaughn 4, Resto 2, Patrick 2, Sobczak 2. 

CARLSBAD 67, TORREY PINES 56-- The Lancers' Derek Stockalper was left free, especially for three-point shots and Stockalper's two three-pointers early in the third quarter broke open a close game as Carlsbad beat Torrey Pines 67-56 in the first round of the CIF-San Diego Section Division I playoffs.   Stockalper, a 6-foot-2 sophomore who said he never heard Olive calling his name, finished with three treys and a game-high 26 points. Nelson, also a  sophomore, had 16 points with four three-pointers, two of them in the third quarter after Stockalper's shooting shredded the defense.  Carlsbad (20-8), the Avocado League runner-up, advanced to the quarterfinals Friday and will host another Avocado opponent, La Costa Canyon (18-10), which upset fourth-seeded Mount Miguel 65-52.  Stopping Carlsbad's three-point shot was crucial to Torrey Pines' game plan after Carlsbad hit 13 in a 75-48 win over the Falcons on Feb. 4. Torrey Pines had won the first of the two league games 59-56 on Jan. 19 in a slower-tempo game.  Last night's game was tightly in the first half, with Torrey Pines extending its man-to-man defense to the three-point circle.   The Lancers could get off only one three-point shot before connecting on their first when Nelson gave Carlsbad a 9-8 lead with 3:37 remaining in the first quarter. Carlsbad didn't hit any second-quarter three-pointers and the half ended in a 31-31 tie.   But Stockalper hit two in the first minute of the third quarter.  In all, Carlsbad connected on nine three-pointers this time, with six in the second half. Junior Tom Crenshaw also finished in double figures with 16 points.  The Falcons, who ended their season 16-12, got 22 points from senior Blake Perry and 10 from Brad Nelson.   The Falcons played without their big man, Daryn O'Patry, who suffered a knee injury a week ago and also missed Friday's regular-season finale.  For Carlsbad, the win was its eighth without a loss in its antiquated, 800-seat gym before moving into a new 2,000-seat gym next year. The new gym is nearing completion next to the old gym and looms over it like an airport hangar next to a two-car garage.  Tarantino, in his fourth year at Carlsbad after moving from Long Island, where he had built St. Dominic into a national power, says this is his best Carlsbad team.   Torrey Pines 17 14 10 15 -- 56 Carlsbad 15 16 16 20 -- 67  Torrey Pines -- B. Nelson 10, Farmisco 3, Perry 22, R. Neff 4, C. Neff 8, Brull 6, McDonough 2, Kramer 3. Carlsbad -- G. Nelson 16, Stockalper 26, Moore 2, Crenshaw 16, Hadley 4, Dismer 3. Three-point goals -- G. Nelson 4, Stockalper 3, B. Nelson 2, Crenshaw, Dismer.  

LA COSTA CANYON 65, MT. MIGUEL 52--LC Canyon 17 6 16 26 -- 65 Mt. Miguel 11 7 14 20 -- 52  La Costa Canyon (17-11) -- DeGuzman 14, Lewis 17, Toledo 14, Allen 10, Phillips 10. Mt. Miguel (19-7) -- Gullett 5, Labuguen 3, Dixon 3, Shaw 4, Aguilar 12, Hill 8, Campbell 2, Barnes 15. Three-point goals -- Aguilar 2, Lewis 2, DeGuzman, Dixon, Gullett. 

HELIX 60, MT. CARMEL 52 --Mt. Carmel 10 15 16 11 -- 52 Helix 11 6 18 25 -- 60  Mt. Carmel (13-15) -- Clark 7, Alcala 9, Be'emnet 10, Kizzar 2, Bartell 14, Traden 10. Helix (20-6) -- Davis 13, Oritz 3, Waggoner 9, Thompson 2, Trisby 24, Jo.Aftreth 9. Three-point goals -- Bartell 2, Clark, Alcala, Trisby 4, Davis 3, Aftreth. Notable: Julian Trisby (H) had eight rebounds and 10 fourth quarter points. 

EL CAMINO 87, MORSE 60 --Morse 17 11 13 19 -- 60 El Camino 13 21 20 33 -- 87  Morse (15-13) -- Brown 5, Harris 11, Lewis 15, Martin 6, Mason 9, White 14. El Camino (16-11) -- McCullough 13, Pierre 24, Maxwell 2, Watson 5, Vaeao 2, Hicks 6, Woods 25, Williams 4, Paopao 2, Kracalik 4. Three-point goals -- Brown, Lewis, Woods 3, Watson. Notable: Jean Pierre (EC) had 13 rebounds and Carl McCullough (EC) had six assists, 5 steals. 

GROSSMONT 52, EL CAPITAN 51-- The Foothillers defeated El Capitan for the third straight time this season.  The 52-51 victory last night by Grossmont (16-11) in the first round of the Division I CIF San Diego Section playoffs advances the Foothillers to the quarterfinals.  The Vaqueros (16-11) have been hard-luck losers in three close games with Grossmont this season, losing earlier by six points in overtime and by two.  The third installment of the Grossmont-El Capitan saga was as dramatic as they come.  With time running out and El Capitan clinging to a 51-50 lead, Grossmont junior guard Kris Zimmer converted a busted play into an almost out-of-control, running 9-foot bank shot down the lane that went in to give the Foothillers their 52-51 lead with two seconds to play. The ensuing inbounds pass by El Capitan senior forward Jeff White hit the overhead speaker console and resulted in a turnover. Grossmont inbounded the ball for the win.  Ober, who is the Player of the Year in the Grossmont North League, had an off night shooting but still scored 15 points. Senior forward Kris McCullough led all scorers with 17.  El Capitan was led by senior forward Jesse Meade, who had 16 points. Freshman center Jarrod Boswell added 14.  El Capitan won the battle of the boards and came fighting back from a 12-point deficit with 30 seconds to play in the third period.   Grossmont still led 45-35 at the end of the third period, but found itself down by
one, 51-50 late in the game. White hit three slashing baskets for El Capitan to mount the comeback.  Early on, El Capitan took advantage of cold shooting by Grossmont. The Foothillers didn't score for the first five minutes of the game and only had seven points in the first period. Grossmont received a scoring pick-me-up from an unlikely source: senior guard Jeff Bergen, who had three monumental three-pointers that changed the momentum of the game in the second half. Bergen finished with those nine big points. El Capitan 9 14 12 16 -- 51 Grossmont 7 14 24 7 -- 52  El Capitan (16-11) -- Meade 16, Boswell 14, White 10, Fisher 7, Enriquez 2, Chavez 2. Grossmont (16-11) -- McCullough 17, Ober 15, Bergen 9, Zimmer 4, Flisher 4, D.Stevens 3. Three-point goals -- Bergen 3, Ober 2.

MIRA MESA 68, VISTA 56--Teyo Johnson and Amon Gordon combined for Mira Mesa High's first 16 points in the fourth quarter, helping lift the unseeded Marauders to a 68-56 upset of No. 2-seeded Vista last night in the first round of the CIF Division I playoffs.  Johnson, a 6'--7' point guard finished with 22 points and 17 rebounds.  While Gordon added 17 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out with 1:12 to play, Jajo's 18 points and Taylor's 11 were critical, especially in the first half when the Marauders struggled.  Vista, winner of eight straight coming into the game, appeared on the verge of blowing out the visitors early, twice pushing the advantage to nine points as Donyare Mayfield (21 points) and Lamar Abbott (10 points) were on fire.  The Panthers (19-9), although shorter, even managed to outboard Mira Mesa (13-12), dominating inside. Jajo not only buried two key three-point field goals, he was what is affectionately known in basketball as a big-time garbage man, collecting loose balls inside and out, hustling to save potential turnovers.  Jajo's 18 points were a season high. That in turn forced Vista to try to stop Johnson one-on-one in the second half. He scored 16 of his 22 points and pulled down 13 of his 17 rebounds after intermission.  But it wasn't even a Johnson field goal that settled matters. Up by five, 57-52, with 2:34 to play, Johnson stole the ball, went length of the court and then somehow found Gordon in traffic, dishing it off for an easy two points.  Vista was unable to recover. Mira Mesa 18 13 16 21 -- 68 Vista 23 12 9 12 -- 56  Mira Mesa (13-12) -- T. Johnson 22, Gordon 17, Jajo 18, Taylor 11. Vista (19-9) -- Mayfield 21, Mason 9, Sybert 8, Abbott 10, Singleton 6, Kent 2. Three-point goals -- Mayfield 4, Sybert 2, Jajo 2, Singleton, Johnson.
