Too late to make it into the paper was the box score. Here it is.

Bobby Bonner 22, Jesse Mitchell 15, Kyshawn Erwin 8, Paul Ruff 6.
SAN BERNARDINO (62)
Khleem Perkins 35, Keon Stephens 8, Andre Shumpert 7, Demetrius Overstreet 4, Derrick Miller 4, Jaywone Draper 2, Jalen Jenks 1, Anthony Banks 1.
Arroyo Valley 12 9 9 21 — 51
San Bernardino 13 14 9 26 — 62
3-point goals: Mitchell (AV) 2, Perkins (SB) 2.
Here are some other notes: Arroyo Valley shot 68 percent from the free throw line (17 of 25) , while San Bernardino shot 50 percent from the line (12 of 24). The teams were downright awful in the third quarter: Arroyo Valley 0 for 4 from the line in the third and San Bernardino 1 for 8.
Although the game was out of reach at this point, Arroyo Valley scored one less point (19) in the final 4:16 of the game as it did in the previous 21:34.
Turnovers were a big factor as San Bernardino’s pressure forced Arroyo Valley into nine turnovers in the second quarter alone.
Not many teams have the luxury of clinching an outright league title with two games still left to play. For San Bernardino’s sake, I hope the Cardinals can keep their edge entering the playoffs.+
