First round

Ontario 85, Riverside ML King 72 --Desmond Crews scored 21 points and Marcel Mack added 14 points to lead Ontario (5-0). David Dunn scored 20 points and Marcus Mack added nine points in the win for the Jaguars.  The Jaguars, the defending tournament champions, remained unbeaten and led 41-31 at the half, but King (5-1) was able to get as close as 67-62 early in the fourth quarter.   Ontario  was led by Desmond Crews, who scored 21 points. Marvin Lea led King, which is ranked 11th in the Los Angeles Times Southern California basketball poll, with a game-high 28 points.

Elsinore 57, San Marcos 51-- Elsinore (6-1) looked as if it would pull away from the Knights early in the fourth quarter, as senior forward Travon Keahey hit two free throws to give the Tigers their only double-digit lead of the night, at 48-38. But Kyle Moore buried a 3-pointer on San Marcos' next trip down the floor.  Jamar Hendrix, who led the Knights with 19 points, cut Elsinore's lead to one, 50-49, with a 3-pointer. Mack Green, however, answered at the other end with a 3-pointer of his own. He drained the shot from the top or the arc with 2:24 remaining, pushing the Tigers' lead to 53-49. Green then got the job done at the free-throw line in the final two minutes, hitting four straight attempts to preserve the win. Keahey led the Tigers with 21 points, but was held to two points in the final period as the Knights double- and triple-teamed him in the post. Green picked up the scoring slack with seven points in the fourth quarter.  San Marcos had its hands full with Keahey in the first half. The lanky 6-foot-5 lefty scored 14 points in the first half, carving his way through the San Marcos defense on his way to several layups and running jumpers. The Knights got a lift at the end of the first half, as Gihad Hamided found nothing but the bottom of the net on a desperation shot covering two-thirds of the court at the buzzer. Hamided's hustle was typical of San Marcos' play throughout the game. Long range shooting kept the Knights in the game, as they connected on eight 3-pointers. Kyle Moore finished with 12 points on four 3-pointers. Moore was the closest thing San Marcos had to a post player. When Moore continuously stepped out on the perimeter, it created matchup problems for the Tigers. Rettinger had to go to a smaller lineup, moving Keahey to the post and sitting starting center William Hunt on the bench.
