Cajon clinches SAL hoops crown in thriller

That had to be the most tightly contested game I’ve seen all year on Tuesday night, when Cajon downed Arroyo Valley 62-61 in overtime, to clinch the San Andreas League boys basketball crown.
It probably wasn’t the best-played game, but it was definitely the most fun to watch.
Great crowd at Arroyo Valley on senior night.
It was a tight game that featured 8 lead changes and 6 ties.
The last tie came after Arroyo Valey’s Bobby Bonner sank a 3-pointer with 5.7 seconds left in regulation to tie the score 55-55.
Arroyo Valley scoring machine Stephen Marshall (no relation to me, as far as I know) made eight 3-pointers, including two in overtime and scored 31 points. His last 3-pointer with 1:52 to play in overtime gave Arroyo Valley at 61-59 lead.
Alonzo McCain missed a chance to tie the game when he made only one of two free throws with 1:05 to play in overtime. But Michael Henley made the off-balance jumper as time expired in overtime to lift the Cowboys to victory.
