San Marcos (6-17, 1-7) made that task a precarious one Thursday with an effort that matched the Chargers in determination as well as on the scoreboard The game was tied 7-7 at the quarter, 15-15 at half and stayed within a basket for all but a couple of moments the rest of the game. The lead changed hands 11 times in the last 20 minutes.

He hit three 3-pointers, all in the second quarter in which Santa Barbara outscored the Bulldogs 19-5. Maloney also contributed six rebounds, two assists and two steals.   Rebounding again played a big part in Santa Barbara's win.

Citrus Belt League

Eisenhower 70, Fontana 59-- Eisenhower (10-0 CBL, 22-4 overall, No. 2 in Division 1AAA), playing without point guard Dante Rouzan (sprained left ankle), committed 13 first-half turnovers and shot 1 of 13 from the floor in the second quarter. Fontana (8-2, 18-8, No. 6 in Division 1AAA) used a full-court press to gain a 32-28 lead at the break.  The only drawback with the pressure was Trayvon Williams, Cory McJimson and Mark Mancha -- Fontana's inside presence -- picked up three fouls apiece in the half. That took away some of Fontana's aggressiveness. Eisenhower had just seven turnovers and outrebounded Fontana 26-9 in the second half. The Eagles outscored the Steelers 23-11 in the third quarter to lead 51-43, and the Steelers never got closer than six points.  Sophomore Sean Marshall had 23 points and eight rebounds, Johnny Dukes had 15 points and nine rebounds, and Alex Acker had six points, five rebounds, eight assists and four steals for Eisenhower. For Fontana, McJimson finished with 14 points, Shedrack Okoebor with 11 and Williams with 10 points, four rebounds and four assists.Coach John McNally was looking for a full 32-minute effort from his Fontana High boys' basketball team Thursday night. He's still looking.  The Steelers mounted a minor comeback in the fourth, rallying from an 11-point deficit. Aaron Gipson scored on a circus shot and came back with two free throws to cut the deficit to 58-52. After Eisenhower's Donta Jackson knocked down a three-pointer, Chris Duran answered with one of his own with 2:02 left.  But the Fontana press, which had worked well in spurts, fell apart in the final moments. The Eagles were able to play keep-away and converted seven-of-eight free throws down the stretch. McJimson led the Steelers with 14 points, but fouled out late in the fourth quarter. Shedrack Okoebor added 11 points, while Williams had 10 points and four rebounds. EISENHOWER (70) -- Marshall 23, Hart 2, Dukes 15, Proctor 3, Acker 6, Jackson 10, James 6, Sams 5.  FONTANA (59) -- Williams 10, McJimson 14, Mancha 7, Okoebor 11, Gipson 9, Duran 3, Gallardo 5.

Pomona had a chance to tie the score, but Charter Oak point guard Sharif Elkaldy pressured Red Devils guard Embert Madison, who threw the ball past Smith and out of bounds with 30 seconds left.
