Chino Hills High School boys basketball player Lonzo Ball headlined the All-CIF Southern Section Open Division team as player of the year on Monday. LiAngelo Ball and Eli Scott also represented the Huskies on the list and head coach Steve Baik was named coach of the year.
The Huskies will play in the CIF State Open Division playoffs on Saturday, facing Northern California representative Concord De La Salle.
Damien High’s Bryce Peters, a University of Colorado commit, rounded out the Open Division selections for local athletes.
Ayala had three representatives on the All-CIF Division 2AA list, led by John Mounce, who received coach of the year honors. John Edgar was named the player of the year for the division and Austen Awosika was also acknowledged on the list.
The trio will lead Ayala to its first CIF State title game on Thursday against Manteca in Sacramento.
For Division 3A, Roman Silva of Diamond Ranch earned player of the year honors and teammate Tyler McLean also received CIF-SS honors. Silva and McLean led the Panthers to a victory over Chaminade, 53-48, in the championship game.
Kayla Washington of Cajon led local girls athletes with a CIF-SS Open Division honors. In Division 1A, Janessa Thropay of Chino Hills was selected to the team along with Diamond Bar’s Juliana Gamboa and Destinee Garr.
Unlike last week’s Regional Final against Santa Ana Mater Dei, Saturday’s CIF State Division II championship game against Elk Grove won’t be an issue of size disadvantage.
“They have a decent point guard and a couple of wings who are pretty good,” Cajon coach Mark Lehman said. “They only start one girl who is 6-foot (junior Sydnee Kilbride) and she’s not a big scorer (3.1 points per game).”
Early in the week, Lehman wasn’t sure what kind of defense he was going to run, but seemed to like the zone that was successful against Mater Dei.
“I don’t know what we’ll do. They only have one outside shooter and chasing around takes energy,” he said.
The zone against Mater Dei was very successful, not only in slowing down the Monarchs, but also keeping the Cowgirls out of foul trouble, which can be Cajon’s Achilles’ Heel. Cajon committed just five total fouls in the 51-30 win against Mater Dei:
Elk Grove’s top players:
Mira Coleman, 5-8, Jr., G, 18.4 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 4.1 apg
Madison Wong, 5-6, Sr., G, 14.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 3.2 apg
Paiton Demps, 5-7, Jr., F, 12.3 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.9 apg
Cajon’s top players, stats through 1st CIF-SS playoff game
Kayla Washington, 6-0, Sr., F, 22.7 ppg, 13.6 rpg, 3.0 apg
Tyla Turner, 5-5, Sr., G, 13.7 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 7.3 apg
Tyra Turner, 5-5, Sr., G, 11.9 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 8.3 apg
Cajon isn’t limited to those players as fellow seniors Dezarae Embry (4.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg) and Taylor Goldsberry (9.7 ppg, 9.0 rpg). Junior Deja McBath a 5-10 forward came off the bench had some big baskets down the stretch against Harvard-Westlake in the state playoffs.
But, if Cajon doesn’t need to substitute like it was in the Mater Dei game, the Cowgirls will win. That’s a big if. And remember, Cajon will be coming off a whole week of rest, so that shouldn’t be an issue.
