Inexperienced McClymonds High edges Monte Vista in boys basketball

Inexperienced McClymonds High edges Monte Vista in boys basketball A lot of names and faces have changed since the McClymonds High boys Basketball team beat Monte Vista in last season's California Interscholastic Federation Northern California Division I title game.

Both teams featured all-senior starting lineups, making Monday's season opener for both teams a vastly different game.

The Warriors' inexperience showed, but McClymonds, which has appeared in the past three state finals, still delivered a 35-32 victory over the host Mustangs.

"There's going to be a whole lot of growing pains," said Mack coach Brandon Brooks, whose team has just three seniors. "There's talent, but there's a lot of inexperience."

Monte Vista also features an inexperienced squad, as none of Monday's five starters even saw action in last season's 46-43 NorCal final loss to McClymonds.

"They definitely got their feet wet," Mustangs coach Bill Powers said. "I'm proud of their effort. To hold McClymonds to 35 points is pretty good."

It also was a reunion of sorts after last season's feel-good story in which the Monte Vista community raised money to help support the Warriors' trip to Sacramento for the state title game.

"After what happened last year with the donations, I thought this would be a great game to play for the fans to enjoy," Brooks said.

Both teams started slow, but McClymonds got six first-quarter points from Roderick Edwards to take an 8-6 lead. Dulani Robertson added six points in the second quarter as the Warriors took a 19-11 advantage into halftime.

Monte Vista got seven points in the third quarter from Alex Golchereh and entered the final period trailing 27-24.

The Mustangs twice got within a point in the fourth quarter but never grabbed the lead.

Jamaree Strickland scored five of his team-high 10 points in the fourth to help McClymonds pull it out. He also had 11 rebounds. Golchereh led Monte Vista with 16 points.

Bishop O'Dowd 62, Archbishop Mitty 48: Mikayla Lyles had 21 points and Robie Mayberry added 17 as the host Dragons (1-0) beat the Monarchs (0-1) for the first time in school history.
