Cody Pearson and Michael Luderer each scored 17 points for Notre Dame (23-5), which will play top-seeded Bishop Montgomery in Friday's semifinals.

Compton Centennial 75, Chaminade 74-- Centennial point guard Roscoe Biggers hit a game-winning 3-point shot at the buzzer to give his team its first lead of the game in a 75-74 win over visiting West Hills Chaminade. With the victory in the CIF-SS Division III-AA quarterfinals, Centennial (14-15) secured a berth in the Southern California Regional Finals (all four semifinalists in D-IIIAA make it to the State tournament).  After making only 1 of 10 from the field, Biggers managed to score 12 points and dish out 3 assists in the last four minutes of the game, finishing 16 points.  He also dished out 14 assists and grabbed 3 steals.  Anthony Davis, a 6-5 senior shooting guard who has signed with Long Beach State  finished with a game-high 30 points. The Eagles (19-9) opened up a 36-26 halftime lead behind 14 first-half points from Scott Borchart, but Centennial pulled within two, 66-63 after Davis converted a three point play.    But Chaminade then went on a 5-0 run, ended when Biggers scored with 1:05 remaining. Chaminade turned the ball over and then Biggers was fouled, making both free throws. Centennial's Gabriel Puritt then made a key block on Ryan Arceo's layup attmept and Jamaal Barnes then scored to cut the Chaminade lead to 71-69 with 40 seconds left. Jordan O'Gilvie was fouled and made one of two free throws for Chaminade, but Biggers then tied the game at 72-72 on a 3-pointer with 14 seconds.  O'Gilvie was fouled on a hard drive into the lane with 4.7 seconds remaining and made both free throws, and Chaminade led 74-72, but Biggers wasn't done:  He dribbled between two defenders, spun and hit the three pointer as time expired. Barnes finished with 14 points for the Apaches, while high-flying 6-6 junior Sterling Byrd provided energy with 8 points and 7 rebounds. O'Gilvie led the Eagles with 24 points, while Borchart had 20 points and 6 rebounds, despite fouling out late in the game.

San Dimas 80, Martin Luther King 70--San Dimas (25-3), which took advantage of open jump shots behind the 3-point arc, advanced to face Compton Centennial in Friday's semifinals. The victory also ensured San Dimas a trip to next month's state tournament. Martin Luther King finishes the season at 20-8.  San Dimas, 8-of-12 on 3-pointers, jumped to a 13-4 lead. Then the Saints withstood a second-quarter barrage by the Wolves and outscored Martin Luther King, 44-31, for most of the second half before winning by 10.   The Saints received a game-high 28 points and 14 rebounds from junior center Antouan Mesropian.
