(Montclair defeated La Canada 71-48 on Saturday to win the Arroyo Basketball Tournament. Locally Arroyo, South El Monte, and Arcadia all placed in the holiday classic)

Third Place – Bishop Amat 44 Arroyo 43 Arroyo refused to throw in the towel with a five point deficit dangling inside the 40-second mark and capitalized upon repeat failed opportunities by the Amat Lancers to ice the game. A technical foul called against Amat with 3.1 seconds left placed Primitivo Gomez at the line. He drained both shots to make it a one point game and give the Knights a chance to win, but his own attempt at a game-winner as time expired fell short amidst hurry as Amat survived. Primi accrued 28 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and four steals, finishing 16 for 17 at the charity stripe, with a net average of 27.5 points per game for this tournament. The Lancers were led by another authoritative effort from Joseph Cook who muscled in 12 points in the second half and finished scoring 18 with 10 rebounds and three blocks. ARR: 9, 13, 9, 12 — 43

BA: 12, 8, 13, 11 — 44 ARR – Gomez 28, Peter Aholoka 4, Ryan Tran 3, Fabian Gomez 2, Cesar Berumen 2, Erick Estrada 2, Edgar Lupercio 2 BA – Cook 18, Jacob Valle 10, Eric Fonseca 5, Owen Kitagawa 4, Ian Hagerty 3, Jeff Wold 3, Jerick Santos 1

 Seventh Place – Arcadia 65 South El Monte 53 Arcadia fared prominently in the fastbreak early on and was nourished by a healthy third quarter enroute to notch its first win of the season by defeating South El Monte. Brian Taylor scored 19 of a game high 26 in the second half, including 12 in that third stanza, to bolster the Apaches, who also benefited via Joe Haines’ three steals and two blocks, the contributions of Jordan Stellern (5 points) and Ben Bowen, who both pitched in six assists, and a productive off-the-scoreboard line from Kevin Gill (9 points) on three rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block. South El Monte received 13 points from Reyes Abalos and seven by Alex Ortiz (5 rebounds, 2 assists). Jordan Vargas had six points on threes in the first and fourth. ARC: 19, 12, 19, 15 — 65
