Q1: Second Baptist (Calif.) 18, Roosevelt 16
Eagles rained in three treys, all by Wil Burns, to stay ahead of the racing Rough Riders.
Q2: Second Baptist 23, Roosevelt 16, 6:54
The Eagles score the first five points of the quarter, scoring off a turnover for a seven-point lead.
Halftime: Second Baptist 36, Roosevelt 34
The Eagles opened the lead to 23-16 and seemed on the verge of blowing this game open when Roosevelt coach Steve Hathaway called time out. The Rough Riders rallied back within one (25-24) and was in the bonus with 5:01 to go in the half. Eagles fans were irate about the foul count: seven for Second Baptist and just one for Roosevelt.
Things started to get a little testy when Second Baptist’s Pedrum Rasouli roofed a layup attempt by Chaston Marcos and taunted Marcos face to face. There was no call there, but moments later, Second Baptist’s senior center, Harry Burg, was whistled for a technical foul after his teammate was fouled near the basket. That cooled the Eagles’ momentum a bit, though Roosevelt’s switch to a 2-3 zone was a gamble that paid off.
Roosevelt took a 30-29 lead on a Marcos layup in transition — Roosevelt outran Second Baptist in transition throughout the first half — with less than 3 minutes to go.
The Rough Riders’ biggest lead was 34-31, but Carter Burton swished a trey and Rasouli followed a miss with a putback at the buzzer to give the Eagles a 36-34 lead at the break. The foul count at halftime was nine for the Eagles and two for the Rough Riders.
FINAL: Second Baptist 74, Roosevelt 68
SB—Ty Dalton 23 (one trey), Jalen Weber 17 (two treys), Wil Burns 9 (three treys), Kaelon Money 8 (one trey), Pedrum Rasouli 6, Sam Brown 4, Carter Burton 3 (one trey). R—Kevin Foster 24 (two treys), Keanu Furtado 15 (two treys), Brent Quackenbush 14 (two treys), Valen Inaura 9, Chaston Marcos 6, Jake Kawasaki 0, Triton Ramos 0.
Q2: Miller Grove (Ga.) 45, Fuxin (China) 6, 3:50
Q3: Miller Grove 62, Fuxin 8
Fuxin playing hard, but they don’t have a press breaker. At least Miller Grove called off its fullcourt press after halftime.
End Q3: Miller Grove 81, Fuxin 14
The Wolverines played reserves in the third. Fuxin sitting back in a 2-3 zone.
FINAL: Miller Grove 96, Fuxin 22
Funniest moment came in the final seconds with the Wolverines suddenly trapping at midcourt again, trying to hit 100 points. They got a couple of steals and scored, and then tried to trap Fuxin’s 6-8 sophomore, Baiqing Zhao.
The big man proceeded to cross up two Wolverines swiping at air, and he drilled an NBA-range 3 at the buzzer. Zhao is a player!
Next: Kaiser vs. ‘Iolani
End Q1: ‘Iolani 15, Kauai 12
Great guard play by the visitors, especially PG Jassem Culmat, but Hugh Hogland’s activity on the low post has Kauai’s top two defenders down low in foul trouble.
Q2: ‘Iolani 26, Kauai 14, 4:00
9-0 run by ‘Iolani has the lead at 10. Erik Yamada drove and fed Hogland for a dunk, Zach Gelacio hit a trey off an offensive board and pass by Hogland, and Pikai Winchester hit a bucket.
Q2: ‘Iolani 31, Kauai 15, 3:07
Hogland with a smooth drop-step drive on the baseline, and with Kamu Borden (6-4) and Hogland (6-8) on the floor together, Kauai can’t get a second shot. Quick break downcourt gets Winchester a clean look and a corner 3. Much of the damage was done with PG Cumlat on the bench resting.
Half: ‘Iolani 31, Kauai 20
Kauai just can’t hit a bucket from the perimeter, and until Melvin Tingzon (6-4) attempted a left-handed jump hook in the final 30 seconds, they hadn’t worked the low post at all against the taller Raiders. Kauai hasn’t boxed out well, either. Hogland and Borden are roaming around quite freely in the paint.
Q3: ‘Iolani 40, Kauai 20, 5:46
Raiders open the second half with a 9-0 run, fueled by Yamada. He hit an elbow jumper and a corner 3 to get them going.
End Q3: ‘Iolani 50, Kauai 27
Final: ‘Iolani 68, Kauai 37
Q1: Oak Hill (Va.) 11, Kamehameha 0
Kamehameha started in 2-3 zone, a rarity, but the Warriors scored the first 11 points anyway. Just physically dominant and imposing. And long. First bucket was an alley-oop dunk, next basket was a dunk and they’ve crashed the offensive boards without much resistance.
Q1: Oak Hill 19, Kamehameha, 5, 1:23
Crowd just went nuts on Kamehameha’s first bucket, a putback by Pono Arias with 2:09 left in the first.
End Q1: Oak Hill 21, Kamehameha 5
Q2: Oak Hill 30, Kamehameha 10, 3:50
Nothing quite like the sight of a 7-footer and 6-9 guy checking in as subs in a high school game. KS doing a much better job against the traps now. They’re getting some good looks. Oak Hill is looking to pass deep into the paint on every possession. Either they don’t want to take the open 3 or they don’t shoot it well. Hard to tell right now.
Half: Oak Hill 43, Kamehameha 12
End Q3: Oak Hill 65, Kamehameha 17
FINAL: Oak Hill 92, Kamehameha 17
