Channel League champion Dons lose in playoff opener
Noah Burke's tip-in basket with less than five minutes to go gave Santa Barbara High School a 44-41 lead over Beverly Hills in boys basketball. But the visiting Normans used a 15-0 scoring run to upset the Dons 62-48 in a first-round CIF Division 3-AAA playoff game.
The Channel League champion Dons got an outstanding game from senior Emilio Gonazalez as he scored 26 points and pulled down 12 rebounds for Santa Barbara who ended their terrific season at 20-5.
Beverly Hills' Siavash Yektafar scored 17 of his game-high 29 points in the decisive fourth quarter.
