Camino Real League

St. Anthony 57, Mary Star 56-- Is St. Anthony about to start another "miracle finish" to their season?  Who knows, but they got off to a similar start to the second half of league play last night, finishing in dramatic form, reminiscent of their victory over Pacific Hills in last year's playoffs which sent St. Anthony to the finals.  On Wednesday, it was Alan Cerino's 21-foot 3-point shot with three seconds remaining that game host St. Anthony a 57-56 win over Mary Star in a critical Camino Real League game for both teams.  The game was critical simply because both teams are battling for a playoff spot, and trying to avoid finishing in the bottom half of the league race, which is really between Verbum Dei and St. Monica's for the top two spots, with Verb in the driver's seat at this point.  On Wednesday, the Stars had a chance to win the game, but Adrian Navarro's last-second, 60-foot shot bounced off the front of the rim.  Jack Kalmeta led Mary Star (7-15, 4-3) with 18 points, Chris Navarre added 11 points, while Navarro had 10 points and 9 rebounds.    Mary Star tied the score at 45-45 on Kalmeta's turnaround jumper and then the teams went back and forth until the Stars opened up a 56-52 lead with 29 seconds remaining, after Chris Cosgrove made both ends of a 1-and-1. St. Anthony cut the deficit to 56-54 on two free throws from Brown with 24 seconds left. Cosgrove had a chance to put the game away with 21 seconds on the clock, but both of his free throws rattled in and out, opening the door for Cerino's heroics.Lauren Brown, a junior guard, led St. Anthony with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 steals. Jay Arizabal added 11 points and 8 rebounds, while Jonathon Watson had a team-high 9 rebounds for the Saints (11-15, 3-3), who kept their playoff hopes alive with the win.

Channel League

Dos Pueblos 60, Santa Barbara 55--Dommanic Ingerson returned to the lineup for Santa Barbara High, but Dos Pueblos pulled out a 60-55 Channel League basketball win on the Dons' court. Steven Graybill of Dos Pueblos led all scorers with 25 points.  Ingerson, the county player of the year, returned from a two-game suspension and scored 14 points to lead Santa Barbara. Ingerson led the Dons in rebounding and earned 14 foul shots. Ingerson hit a 3-pointer with 4:41 left to give the Dons their first and only lead of the second half at 51-50. He also tied the game at 53 with a rebound basket after Graybill and Scott Roegner had combined for three free throws.   But the Chargers retook the lead on a driving shot by Graybill and got some separation when Jenkins found Roegner for a back-door basket. Brandon Duke cut the lead to 57-55 with 58 seconds to play but two free throws by Jenkins and one by Roegner, sandwiched around two misses under pressure by Ingerson, put the game away.  The Chargers move into a first-place tie with Ventura and Buena at 3-2 while Santa Barbara drops to 3-3. Dos Pueblos is 13-6 overall and Santa Barbara is 13-10.  Santa Barbara got a 12-point game from Dante DeRose, including four straight free throws in the third quarter after the Chargers had pulled ahead 46-35.  Logan Burrus followed with two free throws and Dante Bogan and Trey Putnam hit 3-pointers to close the gap, but Graybill was able to stop the bleeding with two free throws and a basket.  DOS PUEBLOS -- Ortiz 6, Cowan 2, Graybill 25, Roegner 18, Sherman 5, Jenkins 6.

Mission League
