Previews of Saturday’s CIF-SS boys basketball championship games for the Orange County teams. CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION BOYS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS DIVISION 1 CHINO HILLS (20-9) VS. SANTA MARGARITA (22-10) Where, when: Cal Baptist University, Saturday, 3 p.m. Admission: $16-$5 (parking $10) Live coverage: http://www.foxsports.com/west/prep-zone Outlook: Chino Hills was the Division 1 champion last season. The top-seeded Huskies, ranked No. 12 in California by CalHiSports.com, in the playoffs defeated Muir of Pasadena in the first round, Canyon in the second round, St. Anthony of Long Beach in the quarterfinals and Windward of Los Angeles 49-47 in the semifinals. Their most-recent loss was to Bishop Gorman of Las Vegas in the Nike Extravaganza at Mater Dei on Jan. 26. Since then Chino Hills has won seven in a row. Chino Hills’ 6-10 senior Onyeka Okongwu is the player that most concerns Santa Margarita and every other team that plays Chino Hills. Okongwu, a USC signee who was the 2018 state player of the year as selected by CalHiSports.com, has had some huge games in the playoffs including 40 points with 12 rebounds in the win over St. Anthony and 26 points and 15 rebounds in the win over Canyon. Santa Margarita finished fourth in the six-team Trinity League behind co-champions Mater Dei and St. John Bosco and third-place JSerra. The Eagles, No. 14 in the California top 20, have playoff wins over Edison, Crespi of Encino, second-seeded Damien of La Verne and third-seeded Harvard-Westlake of Studio city 50-45 in the semifinals. Their record is deceptive, with many of their losses to teams that played in the CIF-SS’s elite division or advanced to the semifinals in other divisions. UCLA-signed senior Jake Kyman scored 31 points against Damien and 19 against Harvard-Westlake. USC-signed senior Max Agbonkpolo scored 22 against Crespi The key player for Santa Margarita in the Division 1 final will be Shengzhe Li, a 6-11 senior signed with BYU. Li often gets into foul trouble. If the Eagles are to win they will need Li on the court for as many minutes as possible to counter Okwongu. If Li is on the bench because of fouls, then Chino Hills has quite a matchup advantage. DIVISION 3A PALM SPRINGS (26-5) VS. CAPISTRANO VALLEY CHRISTIAN (25-7) Where, when: Azusa Pacific University, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. Admission: $16-$5 (parking free) Live coverage: http://www.foxsports.com/west/prep-zone Outlook: Palm Springs advanced to the 3A championship game by beating top-seeded Santa Barbara 57-55 in the semifinals. Elijah Goad, a 6-2 sophmore, scored 16 points and junior Parker Hunt added 11 for Palm Springs in the win over Santa Barbara. Palm Springs’ only CIF-SS boys basketball championship was in 1973. Before beating Santa Barbara the Indians in the playoffs defeated Heritage of Menifee, Sunny Hills and Shalhevet of Los Angeles. Capistrano Valley Christian is one of three San Joaquin League teams that advanced to CIF-SS boys basketball championship games (the others are Fairmont Prep and Pacifica Christian that play each other in the 4AA final). The Eagles finished second, behind Fairmont Prep, in the league. They are in a CIF-SS boys basketball final for the first time. In the playoffs third-seeded Capistrano Valley Christian defeated Valencia, Redlands, Salesian of Los Angeles and in the semifinals beat second-seeded Palos Verdes 48-34. Festus Ndumanya, a high-energy 6-7 senior, has been the Eagles’ top player this season but it was 6-2 junior Luke Powell who was the leading scorer against Palos Verdes with 17 points (Ndumanya scored 13 with six rebounds). Palm Springs is a very good defensive team. If Capistrano Valley Christian can diversify its scoring like it did against Palos Verdes then the Eagles will get that first CIF-SS boys basketball championship. DIVISION 4AA FAIRMONT PREP (24-7) VS. PACIFICA CHRISTIAN (23-7) Where, when: Godinez High, Saturday, noon Admission: $14-$5 (parking $5) Live coverage: http://www.foxsports.com/west/prep-zone Outlook: This is the third meeting this season of these two San Joaquin League teams. Fairmont Prep won both games in overtime – 71-69 at Fairmont Prep on Dec. 14, 66-62 at Pacifica Christian on Jan. 22. Fairmont Prep won the San Joaquin League championship. Pacifica Christian finished third behind Capistrano Valley Christian, another team playing in a CIF-SS final. Top-seeded Fairmont Prep has playoff wins over Jurupa Valley, Temple City, California of Whittier and in the semifinals beat Silverado of Victorville 56-54. Fairmont Prep’s Atin Wright, a 5-11 junior guard, is averaging 26 points a game and senior guard Kobi Aboagye averages 12 points and seven rebounds for the Huskies. Fairmont Prep won a CIF-SS boys basketball championship in the 2014-15 season and was a runnerup in 2013-14. Second-seeded Pacifica Christian snagged playoff wins over Perris, Burroughs of Ridgecrest and Dana Hills before beating Quartz Hill 69-54 in the semifinals. Pacifica Christian lost in the Division 6 championship game two years ago. The Tritons are led by Judah Brown, a 6-7 junior averaging 16 points and 10 rebounds. Solomon Davis, a 6-7 senior, scores 15 a game. Fairmont Prep trailed Pacifica Christian going into the fourth quarter of both games against the Tritons, made fourth-quarter comebacks and won in overtime. Fairmont has height advantages over Pacifica Christian. With what happened in those two earlier games, the Huskies should have the edge in confidence, too. DIVISION 5AA SANTA CLARA (26-6) VS. SAGE HILL (22-10) Where, when: Godinez High, Saturday, noon Admission: $14-$5 (parking $5) Live coverage: http://www.foxsports.com/west/prep-zone Outlook: Top-seeded Santa Clara has playoff wins over Trinity Classic Academy of Valencia, Riverside Prep, Indian Springs of San Bernardino. The Saints beat Hueneme 51-37 in the semifinals as 6-10 junior Christian Oliver had 17 points and 10 rebounds. Santa Clara has 15 CIF-SS boys basketball championships but it’s been a while since the most recent one – 1999. Sage Hill is in its first CIF-SS boys basketball championship game. In the playoffs the third-seeded Lightning, Academy League champions, have wins over California Academy of Math and Science of Oxnard, Gabrielino of San Gabriel, Yeshiva of Los Angeles and in the semifinals beat Bassett of La Puente 61-51. Sage Hill 6-9 senior Johnny King scored 31 points with 22 rebounds in the win over Bassett. Cooper Green scored 17 with four 3-pointers against Bassett. Sophomore guard Cooper Green scored 24 points with six 3s in the win over Yeshiva. It’s going to be a battle of the big guys, Oliver and King. Whichever team gets the most scoring support from other players will get the win.
