San Gabriel 65, Keppel 61--Erik Avila poured in a team-high 19 points and teammates Johnny Tran and J.R. Canizal did their part by adding 12 points apiece as San Gabriel High's boys basketball team upended Keppel, 65-51, in Almont League basketball play Friday night. The Matadors (15-11, 6-4) sealed up a three-way tie for second place in league, but automatically advanced (along with Alhambra) to the playoffs.

Paraclete 65, Village Christian 63--Matt Marquez scored 27 points and Drew Gill added 24 for the Spirits (7-14), who rallied from a 12-point third-quarter deficit to win an Alpha League third-place playoff at Paraclete. Daryl Ellis scored 20 points for Village Christian (6-19), but was unable to convert a layup that would have tied it at the buzzer.Ellis has been the go-to player all year for the Crusaders, but on his drive to the basket during the Alpha League third-place tie-breaker game against Paraclete, Ellis couldn't convert on what looked to be the shot he would make on most other occasions as the Crusaders fell, 65-63, at L.A. Baptist High. The blown layup at the buzzer in no way diminished Elis' superb game and season, but it typified just how forgettable the fourth quarter was for Village Christian (6-18, 2-7 in league), which now is out of the playoff picture. The Crusaders led, 55-47, entering the fourth quarter and were shooting 21 of 42 from the field. But things fell apart in the fourth as Village Christian missed on its first seven shots and could hit just one of nine. Ellis' and freshman Jacob Briggs' play were key for Village Christian early on as the Crusaders led by 13. Ellis finished with 20 points -- 11 in the first half -- and Briggs scored 19 -- 10 in the first quarter. But in the fourth quarter, Village Christian had no answer for Paraclete's Matt Marquez. The sophomore scored 10 of his game-high 27 points in the quarter. The Crusaders also had trouble stopping Drew Gill, who finished with 24 points for the Spirits (7-17, 3-6 in league). Village Christian 20 20 15 8 -- 63 Paraclete 17 15 15 18 -- 65 VILLAGE CHRISTIAN -- Briggs 19, Hall 7, Benko 2, Barrett 9, Ellis 20 and three steals, Agee 6. Three-pointers: Barrett 3, Briggs 2. PARACLETE -- Jeffries 5, Gill 24, Hiley 3, Marquez 27 and 14 rebounds, Brown 6. Three-pointers: Marquez 4, Gill 3, Jeffries.
Peninsula 67, Morningside 58--Peninsula went to the free-throw line to capture fourth place in the Bay League, and with it a guaranteed playoff berth, in its 67-58 overtime victory at home over Morningside in a tiebreaker game. The Panthers (16-12) scored all 10 of their points in overtime on foul shots, missing only two along the way, to hold off Morningside (13-14). For the game, Peninsula went 26-of-36 on free throws compared to 6-of-14 for Morningside. Peninsula's Kevin Gardner scored a game-high 32 points, making four of his six free throws in overtime. The 6-foot-6 center dominated inside with game-highs in rebounds (14) and blocks (five). Peninsula had led throughout most of the game until Morningside's point guard Dan Campbell hit both ends of a 1-and-1 free-throw opportunity with 1:24 to give the visitors their first lead since 8-6. Campbell made another key play on the defensive end when he forced a turnover. At the other end, Morningside's David Payne fouled Peninsula's Jay Lescoulie. Jay Lescoulie sank his first free throw on the double bonus, but missed the second attempt that would have tied the game. With time running down on the shot clock, Campbell made a jump shot at the top of the key to give the Monarchs a 57-55 lead with 14 seconds left. The play worked, but Peninsula pushed the ball past Morningside's press and Ryan Johnson hit a floater on the baseline to tie it with 4.2 seconds left and force overtime. Instead, Morningside will have to play the waiting game to see whether it makes the Div. III-AA playoffs.
Camino Real League
St. Anthony 68, Mary Star of the Sea 58--All season long, the Mary Star's boys basketball team looked to Jack Kalmeta to carry them. So in the Stars' biggest game of the season, Mary Star coach Andy Furuto said he was going to win or lose with his star player. Kalmeta responded with a career-high 39 points, but the Stars were unable to overcome St. Anthony in a 68-58 loss in the third-place tiebreaker for the final playoff berth from the Camino Real League on Friday at Long Beach City College. Kalmeta made 11-of-25 shots from the field, including five 3-pointers. Adrian Navarro scored nine points for Mary Star and Chris Cosgrove added eight as the Stars finished at 8-19 overall and 5-6 in league. The Stars had only four players score . Kalmeta scored all but four of his team's points in the second half. Lauren Brown led five St. Anthony players in double figures with 20 points. Alan Cerino, who made a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer against Mary Star a week ago to set up the one-game playoff, finished with 13 points. Jay Arizabol, Jonathon Watson and Pat Taliauli each added 10 points for St. Anthony. The Stars were also hampered by foul trouble.

Del Rey League
Serra (win), St. Bernard (lose)--Coin tosses are no fun. Especially for the losing team. On Friday, Serra was one of two teams to win a coin toss to advance to the postseason after four teams finished tied for second in the Del Rey League behind Bishop Montgomery. St. Bernard lost the coin-flip and was designated as the fourth-place team. Serra (13-11, 3-5) will play in the Division V-AA playoffs and represent the Del Rey League as the second-place finisher. Bishop Amat also won a coin toss, which was determined by all four coaches tossing coins simultaneously; when one coach's coin would not match the other three, that coach was determined the winner. Serra, Bishop Amat, St. Bernard and St. Paul all tied for second in the five-team league.
Del Rio League
California 58, La Serna 49--Friday night, what has been a remarkable season for the Condors culminated in a 58-49 victory over two-time defending champion and host La Serna in the Del Rio League regular-season finale. With the win came the league championship, and it was captured in impressive fashion before an overflow crowd estimated conservatively at 1,200. California finished with a 17-8 record overall and 9-1 in league, the only loss a 54-48 decision to Santa Fe in the second round. Te game was close through three quarters as each team used a modest scoring streak to build a little margin, only to have it wiped out moments later. La Serna led, 15-14 after one quarter, then fell behind, 22-15, as George Baltierrez (11 points) came off the bench to score six points and key an 8-0 run at the start of the second quarter. La Serna (21-5, 7-3) finished the period with a 9-0 spurt as Anthony Martinez (who finished with 26 points) scored seven in the final 1:41 to gain a 27-27 tie at halftime. The score was tied at 33, 35 and 37 in the third quarter before Josh Oltjenbruns and Koza traded 3-point baskets in the final 35 seconds to knot the count at 40-40 at the end of the period. Baltierrez opened California's scoring in the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer and center David Shellman came alive with six of his nine points to help the Condors to a 52-47 led with 2:27 to play. At the same time, La Serna went cold against an aggressive California defense and managed only Martinez's two free throws, with 21.3 seconds to play, over the final 2:47 of the game. Anchondo led the Condors with 14 points and had five rebounds, three offensive, and was a key factor in holding Martinez to just four free throws over the last 13:25 in the game. Scottie Frazier finished with 10 points and six rebounds, and along with Anchondo and Shellman, who had seven rebounds, made up the three key defenders against Martinez, especially in the final quarter. Martinez finished with seven rebounds, Richard Perretta had six and John Picone grabbed a game-high 13 despite being hampered with foul trouble for La Serna.

El Dorado 42, Loara 41--El Dorado sought revenge and got it, scoring a 42-41 victory over Loara in an Empire League boys basketball game Friday night at Loara. It was the regular-season finale for both. Loara clinched the league championship Wednesday. The Saxons, ranked ninth in Orange County, lost their first league game to finish with a 9-1 league record. They will take a 20-6 overall record into the CIF Southern Section playoffs, which begin Wednesday. El Dorado finished second in the Empire League with an 8-2 league record. The Golden Hawks, ranked 10th in the county, are 22-4 and in the playoffs will compete in Division I-A, as will Loara and some other good county teams: Mater Dei, Woodbridge and Villa Park. Earlier this season, Loara beat El Dorado at El Dorado. Loara had a three-point lead early in the fourth quarter. El Dorado took the lead for good when Mike Wulff converted a steal into a breakaway layup and a 39-37 advantage with 1:19 remaining. The Saxons' Nate Von Achen made a free throw to halve the Golden Hawks' lead to one. El Dorado's Evan Bull hit a free throw with 32 seconds to go for a 40-38 lead, and Wulff added two foul shots with 12 seconds left to make it 42-38. Loara's Colin Brennan made a three-pointer with one second remaining to account for the final score. Bull finished with 13 points and eight rebounds. Von Achen paced Loara with 13 points and seven rebounds. Brennan made three three-pointers.
Cypress 61, Katella 52 (2OT)--The third-place Centurions (15-10, 6-4) needed two overtimes to beat the host Knights (12-14, 1-9).

St. Bonaventure 82, Carpinteria 55--Steve Tarin scored 27 points for the Seraphs (17-6, 7-1), who clinched their first outright Tri-Valley League title since 1988 at Carpinteria.
Quartz Hill 64, Lancaster 63--Tony Johnson scored 17 of his 25 points after halftime for the Rebels in a 64-63 victory Friday night at Quartz Hill. It was the second time this season Quartz Hill (17-6, 7-3 in league play), which finished in second place, defeated the Eagles (19-6, 8-2). Johnson saved his best for the fourth quarter, when he scored 11 points, making all five of his free throws. Despite Johnson's efforts, it was a defensive play that might have settled it for the Rebels. After Michael Webb of Lancaster sank a three-point basket with two seconds remaining to make it 64-63, Devin Francis of Quartz Hill was called for traveling after he received the inbound pass. Fortunately for Francis, it didn't take long for him to redeem himself. He stepped in front of a pass intended for Michael Wright and deflected the ball as time expired. James scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half, including 10 in the fourth quarter. Webb finished with 13 points. In the end, though, the Eagles saw too much of Johnson, who had 10 rebounds and five assists

Oakwood 53, Providence 52 (OT)-- Since we were at this game, and posted in the message forum instead of a Daily Article, here's what we saw on Friday night: Sometimes a team just seems like it has its opponent's "number". . .this year it was Yeshiva and Buckley. . and in the same league, Oakwood and Providence. And tonight, Oakwood got it done in overtime, beating Providence 53-52. Ok, now there are a lot of people who will say that Oakwood doesn't play the prettiest or most athletic basketball, but sometimes a team is just able to put together a truly great win even if it doesn't look pretty. . . and that's what happened tonight. Really this was one of those "you had to be there" kind of games. The Oakwood Gorrillas, playing for nothing more than pride in a game that could not possibly affect their fourth place final standing in the Liberty League, really shocked Providence, the No. 5 ranked team in Division IV-A, first taking them to overtime, and then beating them. Providence was playing for a share of the league title, and with a win they would have tied Buckley for first. But with the loss, Providence now has sole possession of second place for the second consecutive year, and this will undoubtedly affect their seeding in the Division IV-A playoffs as they won't enter as a No. 1. Seriously, it has been a loooong loooong time since Oakwood won the CIF Championship, in 1988 to be exact with some very good players (including Mitchell Butler who wound up at UCLA and then in the NBA for a stint). And while this isn't a comparable team to that championship team, and the current Oakwood Gorrilla team isn't likely to take a section title, they did demonstrate tonight that anything is possible. . . The game got off to a slow start, and it sort of looked like it was going to be a typical Oakwood game. . slow pace, painstakingly slow ball movement at times, and one of the weirdest press breaks you ever want to see. . . Seriously, ask anyone who plays these guys and they'll tell you that the reason Oakwood is so difficult to play is because they do things in a really unconventional way. Odd stuff at odd times, for you old farts out there, just think of trying to play bridge with a pinnochle player. . .you don't have any idea what the other guy is doing because it's so weird. . .That's how Providence must have felt. . . About 3 minutes into the game, the score was 6-1 Oakwood. By the end of the first quarter it was 12-11 (I think that was the score, but I didn't take notes so a lot of this is going to be by memory), Oakwood. Providence looked sort of stunned, and other than 4 first half points, one a bank shot off the glass from the free throw line, and another jumper in the lane, Providence's center Derek Jones (6'-7" Sr. C) couldn't buy a basket against Oakwood's Nick Mark (6'-8" Sr. C). At the half it was a 1 point game, with Oakwood trailing 22-23 (I think). The third quarter featured what seemed like 10 lead changes, and then in the fourth, coming down to the last three minutes it looked like Oakwood was finally in trouble and the clock was striking 12 midnight for the Cinderella team. But then everything just sort of started to go Oakwood's way. . . it was one of those palpable moments, when you can actually feel the momentum shift, and somehow, even though it was objectively not possible that Oakwood was going to win, somehow, you just knew they weren't going to lose either. Eric Noble (5'-11" Sr. PG) from Oakwood started the run, hitting a huge 3 pointer. I can't recall the exact next sequence of scoring, but in the last 1:18 of regulation, Oakwood scored 8 consecutive points to tie the game, and they did it in dramatic fashion. Down by three with less than 20 seconds on the clock, and once again bringing the ball up in a really methodical fashion against Providence's press, Oakwood's Yoni Howard (6'-3" Sr. SG/SF) became the first hero of the evening. With less than 6 seconds showing on the clock, and standing about 4 feet away from midcourt in Oakwood's frontcourt, Howard had the ball, closely guarded by two Providende defenders. The crowd started to count out the seconds as they ticked. . .Howard turned, seemed to bobble the ball for an instant, and with two defenders in his face, launched an off-balance left-handed shot-put type of shot, a high arching shot, which hit the heel of the rim, bounced up, hit the rim again, and then with 2.3 seconds remaining, dropped in to tie the score. Providence got the ball back, raced up the court, but missed a shot as time ran out. In overtime, Providence hit the first basket, but on the other end, Derek Jones drew a foul guarding Nick Mark in the paint, his 5th and Mark went to the line, missed one, hit the other and Oakwood was down by only one. The next time down the floor, Providence's Eric Vaca drove into the lane, hit the shot and was fouled by Noble, also his 5th. Junior Julian Mintz came in and played well, as did Derrick Fetty in the final stretch. Vaca went to the line, made the free throw, and it looked like it was all over. But Nick Mark was again fouled, went to the line, hit them both. Providence turned the ball over on the next possession and after a series of miscues, with only 4.5 seconds remaining, Nick Mark hit a soft 15' shot that seemed to float into the basket. Providence had just enough time to get the ball inbounds but turned it over, and that was the game. Nick Mark,Eric Noble, Mitch Firestein, Yoni Howard, Derrick Fetty and Julian Mintz were the core group of players who made it happen tonight. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few other guys too, and if so I apologize. This was also senior night for Oakwood, and so the place was packed. If you haven't seen Oakwood's brand new gym yet, it's well worth checking the place out during a playoff game, because it's truly an amazing gym. . .and this was an amazing game.

Simi Valley 82, Royal 46--Jered Weaver, a 6-foot-5 senior guard for the Simi Valley boys' basketball team, completed a special night for his family Friday night. His 14 points and six assists helped Simi Valley record an 82-46 win over Royal in the Marmonte League finale.

Junior forwards Joel Hendershot and Kyle Vondrak each had 10 points for the Highlanders (1-25, 0-12).
Westlake 65, Agoura 62--If Westlake wouldn't celebrate a league championship on its home court, neither would Agoura. A sterling second half by the Warriors assured that, as Westlake wiped out a nine-point deficit with a 17-2 run en route to a 65-52 victory in the regular-season finale. Kole Anderson, with just two points in the first half, ended with a game-high 20 points, including four 3-pointers, and Tyler Adamczyk notched 16 points and 16 rebounds and Westlake wrapped up third place in league at 8-4 (14-9 overall) and the No. 3 seeding for next week's playoffs. Agoura, seeking at least a share of the league championship, settles for second place at 9-3 (20-5 overall). The balanced, but cold-shooting Chargers, got 13 points apiece from Adam Allegro and Kevin Cornwell, and 12 points from Johnny Gray. Agoura, despite hitting just 10 of 34 shots, used its full-court press to build a nine-point lead midway through the third period. Cornwell's 3-pointer with 3:15 left in the quarter upped the advantage to 37-28. Thereafter, Westlake seized control. Anderson's jumper cut the deficit to 37-30, then Adam Mazarie and Anderson each connected on back-to-back 3-pointers to spark a 14-2 closing run in the period. Adamczyk's rebound basket and a free throw by Brandon Duplessie upped Westlake's lead to 45-39 at the top of the fourth quarter. Agoura never got closer than four points again.
Thousand Oaks 75, Newbury Park 56--With the help of 13 3-pointers and Westlake's win over Agoura, Thousand Oaks claimed sole possession of the Marmonte League title, winning 75-56 at Newbury Park. Thousand Oaks is 20-5, 10-2 to finish a game ahead of Agoura, which lost 65-52. Newbury Park finishes 13-12, 3-9, and will hope for an at-large playoff bid. Dave Anderson (three 3s, 19 points) and Ben Olson (four 3s, 18 points) led the way, with Kyle Kegley added three 3s and 14 points. Olson led the team's 13-of-28 shooting from long range, hitting 4 of 6 beyond the arc. Olson made a 3 on the first Lancer possession, followed by two from Anderson for a 9-2 lead the team would never relinquish. Newbury Park made a few runs, the last to cut a 15-point lead to 38-33 midway through the third quarter, but Thousand Oaks finished that period with a 16-5 burst to lock up the game and, as it turned out, the league. Thousand Oaks did that by getting into the up-tempo game it prefers, helped in no small part by Newbury Park's turnovers. The Panthers had 15 giveaways in the first half, 21 overall, leading to 25 Thousand Oaks points. Newbury Park scored just seven points off Thousand Oaks turnovers. Anderson and Kevin Rex each had four assists for Thousand Oaks, which finished with 15. Anderson also had seven rebounds.

Gabrielino 51, Arroyo 44--The Eagles (10-16, 6-4) overcame a lousy first half, in which they hit just four of their 25 shots from the field, to squeak out a 51-44 victory with a dazzling performance by Ernesto Ruiz. Ruiz came alive in the final three minutes of play, scoring eight of his team-high 14 points in the final 2:33 and boosting his team's momentum with a series of defensive plays. Ruiz nailed a 3-pointer with 2:33 to play to tie the game at 40-40. He then stole the ball in the backcourt on the ensuing possession and tapped in a lay-up to pull the Eagles ahead for good. The Knights (10-15, 5-5), who watched their lead evaporate in the fourth quarter, failed to respond to Ruiz and allowed Gabrielino to close the game with a 6-of-9 performance from the free-throw line in the final minute. Arroyo broke out to an early lead in the second quarter, following a 6-5 first quarter. Kevin Zhang, who led all players in points and rebounding, shot baskets on the move to extend the lead to 23-13 at the end of the half. Zhang scored 11 of his game-high 15 points and missed just two shots in the first half. He collected 13 rebounds and threw back two offensive rebounds for second-chance points. Sean Carey, who hit a 3-point basket with 5:22 to play to give Gabrielino its first lead since the start of the second quarter, scored 13 points and held Zhang in check under the basket by collecting 11 rebounds of his own. Physical play and emotions took center stage throughout the game. The referees issued warnings to both teams between the first and second quarters following a series of intentional bumps and pushes by multiple players. Ruiz was called for an intentional foul in the third quarter after slamming Arroyo's John Tionco into the bleachers to avoid a fast-break opportunity.
Long Beach Poly 61, Long Beach Jordan 50-- Markee White made three key outside jump shots over the first 10 minutes of the second half to help Poly quickly erase a 26-21 halftime deficit in a 61-50 win over the Panthers in front of an overflow crowd. The victory marked Poly's 33rd consecutive Moore League win. The Jackrabbits (22-5, 12-0) had clinched the school's 22nd Moore League boys basketball title when Jordan (19-10, 9-3) lost to Millikan on Wednesday. White finished with 12 points and a game-high 10 rebounds, after making 1 of 6 shots in the first half. Marcedes Lewis scored 14 points for Poly, while DeAndre Williams added 12 points and 8 rebounds off the bench. Senior guard Ron Banks and senior center Clay Salima led Jordan with 16 and 13 points, respectively.

But the Raiders, needing a win to progress to the postseason, froze up on their way to the playoffs. The results knocks out Channel Islands (8-17, 3-6 in the PVL) from postseason consideration. Camarillo (14-13, 4-5) moves on to the CIF-Southern Section I-AAtournament next week. Channel Islands led 16-9 after one quarter and 32-25 at halftime. A Steven Baier layup in traffic put Channel Islands up nine points with 5:50 to play. The run started when Camarillo guard Brad Boyer was fouled while attempting a 3-point shot. Boyer (9 points) converted all three free throws and the run was on. Jared Jungwirth and Ian Caldwell put together back-to-back 3-point plays to take the lead, 55-54, with 2:57 left. Jungwirth (16 points) and Caldwell (15 points) paced a balanced Camarillo scoresheet.
