Hey Hoops fans, I have successfully set up shop here on press row at Cal-Berkeley’s Haas Pavilion. It should certainly come as no surprise to anybody that the games are already running behind. Currently, Sacred Heart Cathedral-SF is clinging to a 73-67 lead over Skyline with 30 seconds to play. Salesian (13-3) and Newark Memorial (15-3) wait in the wings.
Here’s the game plan for us tonight:
I’ll pick up live play-by-play action at halftime of the Salesian-Newark game. Jimmy Durkin, who will be covering that game for the paper, will then jump on to the blog to bring play-by-play coverage of the last two games, St. Mary’s (15-2) vs. Monte Vista (15-0), and De La Salle (13-1) vs. McClymonds (17-0).
Salesian and Newark will likely get underway around 4:50, and I’ll drop in periodic updates until picking up full-time at the start of the second half between the Cougars and Pride.
Final score of first boys game: SHC 77, Skyline 72. Be back shortly.
