Pomona got off to a slow start and trailed 15-9 after the first quarter. The Red Devils finally got it going in the second quarter for a 25-24 halftime lead. After an O'Neil basket gave the Burros a brief lead to start the third quarter, Pomona went on a 12-2 run (eight points by Embert Madison) to take its largest lead of the game, 37-28. Burroughs never got closer than three points the rest of the game, although Pomona had a difficult time putting the Burros away. Madison had 14 of his 16 points in the second half, and Darnell Buchanan added 10 of his 13 after halftime.

Bonita Vista 89, Verdugo Hills 38-- Danny Castro's 12 points weren't nearly enough for Verdugo Hills of Tujunga in its 89-38 loss to Bonita Vista at the La Canada tournament. The Dons (1-11) were outscored 38-8 in the third quarter.  But how was the game, really?  Well, today's LA Times (Glendale/La Crescenta/Burbank edition) actually had the best/worst lines we've seen:   "It wasn't pretty.  And that's an understatement. Verdugo Hills' 89-38 loss to Bonita Vista in a consolation game of the 10th annual La Canada Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament on Friday at La Canada High on Friday was ugly. Bad-taste-in-your-mouth,  wish-you-hadn't-seen it horrible, actually.  And after it was all said and done -- after the Barons (2-5) decided that instead of taking it easy on the Dons, they would take it to them, running up a brutal 59-20 second-half advantage -- two members of the young, struggling Verdugo Hills team (1-11) still managed weak smiles.  'We just have to practice more,' said junior reserve Manny Urbina, who was one of four Don players to play and not score. 'We just have to practice harder. We're a young team, and we just need more experience.'  Starting point guard Teak Lee nodded in agreement. 'We do have potential,' said Lee, who also didn't score . . . .Yet, after Friday's stomping ended, Don Coach Scott Kemple, like his players, could still force a smile. ' We didn't quit,' Kemple said. 'But it's has to be frustrating for the guys.You just try to stay positive and make them understand that its a learning experience, and hopefully they'll improve from it.' "      Verdugo Hills 6 12 11 9 -- 38  Bonita Vista 17 13 38 21 -- 89 VERDUGO HILLS -- Leon 11, Mamon 6, Staley 4, Macauley 4, Castro 12.      Three-pointers: Leon 3.   BONITA VISTA -- Jensen 14, Palacio 1, Stephens 30, Ortega 8, Brooks 2, Garewal 8, Dominguez 17, Wallingford 6, Ornelas 3.  Three-pointers: Dominguez 2, Stephens 2, Garewal 2, Jensen, Orenalas.
