Pasadena, La Canada score huge wins on Friday …

Pasadena 78, Muir 58 — The Bulldogs got 28 points from Ajon Efferson, who answered with three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter after Muir cut it to 54-45 with seven minutes, to rout the Mustangs. PHS also got 20 from Rayjon Moore. Muir’s Dejon Williams was held to 11 and the Mustangs were led by Chris Ballew’s 20.

La Canada 68, Temple City 62 — The Spartans rallied in the fourth quarter after trailing most of the game. This game will go a long way toward determining the Rio Hondo League championship and as of now the Spartans appear on their way back to the top.

Muir’s Dejon Williams scores 44 as Mustangs edge Burroughs … set up showdown with PHS …

Muir 71, Burroughs 69 — The Stangs just upped the stakes of Friday’s rivalry game with PHS by stunning Burroughs. Dejon Williams scored 44 points to help Muir pull it off. Muir still has some work to do in the league standings, but if it can beat PHS, too, this could be one heckuva a week.

Keppel 50, Schurr 24 — The Aztecs got 24 from Adam Thompson, 11 of which came in the first quarter, and remained unbeaten in the Almont League. So much for Schurr being a threat to Keppel.

Aram’s predix for Rio Hondo League boys and girls hoops races … Follow me for score updates at @aramtolegian

The boys and girls Rio Hondo League hoops season tips off tonight with an interesting slate. South Pas vs. La Canada in both boys and girls is gonna go a long ways toward determining the league champ. That’s my take, anyway. Here are the not-so-fearless predictions … why? Because this blog is booooorrrrrrrrinnnnnggggg. Thanks for reading!

Boys Predictions

1. La Canada — Sparty can get their shots, can they knock ‘em down?
2. South Pas — The win at Glendora stands out. But was it their peak?
3. Temple City — “TC by 2″ – Mike Tomasulo circa 1990.
4. Monrovia — Long-term, Goldstein turns this program around.
5. San Marino — Yeah, I’m not buying the record.
6. Blair — Back in the day … this isn’t back in the day.

2. South Pasadena — Proved last year they can bang with LC.
3. Temple City — Decent, but appears to be a bit behind top two.
4. San Marino — Have to think Titans are better than record.
5. Monrovia — Would have better chance if they played defense.
6. Blair — Uh, yeah, they’ve played five games.
