The Keppel High School girls basketball team couldn’t convert with 2.5 seconds left in the game as Lynwood escaped with a 62-60 win Tuesday night in the semifinals of the CIF-Southern Section Division 2AA playoffs.
It was the second consecutive game that No. 1 seed Keppel (27-4) faced an opportunity to win the game with a last-second shot attempt. Alyson Lock went coast-to-coast in the quarterfinals and converted the layup as time expired while Canyon of Canyon Country attempted to inbound the ball.
This time the chance barely presented itself as Keppel heaved a pass to mid-court. The catch wasn’t made in time and the Aztecs couldn’t control possession as time expired.
Lock was fouled with 56.5 seconds left in the game and converted two free throws to tie the game 60-60 after being fouled on a steal off a Lynwood inbounds pass.
Lynwood (24-4) missed two free throws on the ensuing possession and after a series possession exchanges that included two Keppel misses, Lynwood’s Jazmine Johnson scored the winning basket on a running layup with 3.1 seconds left in the game.
Keppel coach Hon Trieu called a timeout with 2.5 seconds left in the game to formulate a plan, but to no avail. It was the Aztecs’ second consecutive year of reaching the semifinals under Trieu, who is in his second season at the helm. Keppel will likely make the CIF State playoffs when the pairings are announced on Sunday.

Hemet scored a counterattack goal immediately after a South Pasadena
corner kick that appeared to go off a Bulldog player’s hand in a 2-1
victory in a Division 6 semifinal game on Tuesday afternoon.
“A girl saved it with her hands,” South Pasadena midfielder Taylor
Colliau said. “If it was at home I don’t know if the refs would have
magically seen it. It was literally a hand ball. I don’t know what
else to say.”
With Hemet leading, 1-0, Lenja Suey took a corner kick 40 minutes
into the game. Defender Nola Prickett got a head on the kick, but it
appeared it might have gone off another’ defender’s hand, which would
have resulted in a penalty kick.
“Referees can’t see everything,” Tigers coach Randy Lilavois said.
“From our standpoint it was obviously a hand ball. We can’t blame
