We also didn't get to stay for the Championship game yesterday, but Lincoln of San Diego won the whole thing.  Randy also sent us a little blurb about that game:

Behind the 1-2 combo of MVP Shaun Davis (5'-9" Jr. PG) and Dominic McGuire, Lincoln HS of San Diego overtook Artesia in the 4th quarter to win the championship of the Palm Springs Tourney, 49-46. Artesia was ahead by as much as 13 in the contest, and were winning 35-25 going into the final quarter. This was when Davis and McGuire took over, scoring 20 of Lincolns 24 points in the 4th. Davis converted on a steal and a put back and McGuire had a dunk and a post move to catch and overtake the Pioneers. Artesia was led by Ron Allen with 12 points and Ryan Mueller had 11. For the Hornets, Shaun Davis had 16, and McGuire had 14.

In the Third Place game, Lynwood went on a 2nd half tear, outscoring Dos Pueblos 35-19 to win going away by the score of  70-50.   Lynwood had some nice scorers, guys like Daniel McCall, who was selected to the All-Tournament team as well as Ashlee Palmer, James Lanson.  Dos Pueblos just ran out of gas following an amazing game the night before, a 41-37 loss to Lincoln.  Steve Graybill made the All-Tournament team as well after putting together performances of 23 and 18 points in two of the first games played. 

In the Consolation Championship (fifth place) game, Buckley beat Banning, 46-43.  David Gale (6'-0" Sr. PG) was the high scorer for the tournament with games of 23, 20 and 18 and was selected to the All-Tournament team, and the Griffins were also paced by Tristan Seisa (6'-3" Jr. G/F) and incoming transfer Baron Abdul-Monsour (6'-3" So. G/F), Alex Marshall (6'-4" Sr. F), and Nick Brar (6'-2" Sr. SG).  Banning was led by excellent play from All-Tournament selection Marlin Harris (6'-0" Sr. G), as well as Chris Turner (5'-10" Sr. G), Pierre Campbell (6'-1" Sr. G), Brian Colby (6'-4" Jr. F), Frankie Hernandez (5'-10" So. G) and Flamingo Malone (6'-4" Sr. F).
