Peter McCaslin scored 19 points and Wes Putnam added 11 for Chadwick (10-6, 4-0). Flintridge is 3-1 in league.  Flintridge Prep made just three of 10 attempts at the line in the fourth quarter and the Dolphins converted on all 10, including six by Mike Reich, to pull out a 67-62 win at Flintridge Prep.  Reich scored a game-high 28 points, including 15 in the fourth quarter, and added 10 rebounds for Chadwick (10-6, 4-0 in league).  The Dolphins had only four players score, but the one-two punch of Reich and Peter McCaslin -- the returning league co-most valuable players -- proved too much for Flintridge Prep to overcome.  McCaslin added 19 points and five rebounds, and made all four of his free throws as Chadwick shot 16 of 19 from the line, versus Flintridge Prep's six-of-16 performance.  Neither team led by more than five points until Reich's two free throws with 27 seconds remaining put the Dolphins ahead by seven. The Rebels (8-9, 2-1 in league) built a five-point advantage with 3:59 left in the third quarter, but Chadwick responded with an 11-0 run.  Ohara's squad rebounded to score the final eight points of the quarter, including three-pointers by Connor O'Byrne and Tim Mercer.  O'Byrne led the Rebels, who hit eight three-point field goals, with four shots from behind the arc.

Cajon 77,Colton 56-- In a game that through many stretches resembled layup drills, Cajon managed to play enough defense in the fourth quarter to run away to a 77-56 home victory and become the only 3-0 team in league play.  The last time Cajon (12-6) started off 3-0 in the SAL, it won the league -- in 1998. Colton is now 2-1 in league, 10-8 overall. Colton star Kevin Pinkney, a 6-foot-9 senior center, finished with a game-high 27 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks despite being double-teamed constantly in a zone defense.  In the fourth quarter, Cajon successfully denied Pinkney the ball inside and tired out Colton's six-man rotation. Leading only 46-40, Cajon outscored the Yellowjackets 31-16 in the fourth, led by 10 points from senior Larry Dew (19 points, six assists, four rebounds) and nine points from junior Donovan Morris (26 points, seven rebounds, three steals). Morris made all eight of his second-half shots, while Dew made 7 of 9. Kris Silvas had five assists and three steals off the bench. Colton committed 18 turnovers, 13 in the second half and seven in the fourth quarter. It also switched defense from zone to man for most of the fourth quarter, a strategy that backfired as Cajon scored layup after layup in transition and through penetration.
