Valencia (3-0): 89
West Ranch (2-1): 56
Valencia had West Ranch doubled up by halftime, 53-25, and never let up.
The Vikings offense is just too difficult to stop. Averaging over 77 points per game in league play, they have proven shooters, with Foothill League leading scorer Noah Veluzat (26 points) and Jake Hlywiak (21 points), and big guys that can finish around the rim like Kevin Konrad (17 points) and Junior Camacho (9 points).
A dangerous team that on any given night could go for 100.
Hart (2-1): 67
