The three-pointer gave Laguna Hills the lead for good midway through the fourth quarter after the Wildcats had appeared to turn the momentum in their favor.  And the unusual free throws provided the Hawks with a late four-point lead that almost evaporated when Brea guard Ryan Moore's off-balance three-pointer fell short at the final buzzer.  Laguna Hills built a 27-14 halftime lead,  but Brea pulled to within three but couldn't get any closler.

Trailing 42-30 with 2:43 left in the third quarter, Agoura embarked on a 7-0 run, weathered an off-balance 3-pointer by Pasadena's Eubanks at the third-quarter buzzer, then used a 10-4 run midway through the fourth period to pull within one point. Allegro, with 11 points in the final quarter, hit a 3-pointer, spun inside for two points and watched Jeff Delson hit one of two free throws with 1:17 left to cut the defict to 55-54.  After Wilburn hit three of four free throws, Allegro countered with two free throws after grabbing a rebound to cut the disadvantage to 68-56 with 37 seconds left.

Ryan Lux and Travon Keahey scored 22 points apiece to lead the Tigers. Lonnie Fletcher led Ramona with 15 points, while Houston Downey added 11 points and 15 rebounds.  The Tigers (16-10) will now play La Quinta in the next round on Tuesday.   Elsinore was down by seven headed into halftime. That deficit stayed intact entering the game's final quarter partly because of key missed shots from the line that would have tied the game in several spots. But with 3:54 left to play, Ryan Lux's three-pointer tied the score at 56. A second shot by Lux gave the Tigers their first lead in three quarters for all of five seconds before the Rams tied it again.  It was then that Elsinore found its lost free-throw shot and took the lead on Travon Keahey's shot. Mack Green hit two, Lux three more, Ryan Cirilo threw one in and the victory was secured. Keahey and Lux continued their offensive dominance with a game-leading 22 points apiece. Keahey added 10 rebounds and Lux chimed in nine. Glynn Kondus had 11 points and Ross Walter finished with six steals and 10 rebounds.  ELSINORE (69) -- Keahey 22, Green 9, Lux 22, Cirilo 5, Wolter 0, Kondus 11.  RAMONA (59) -- Henry 7, Lewis 12, Downey 11, Carr 5, Alex 6, Fletcher 15, Diaz 3.
