O’Dowd in Holiday Classic championship game

The Bishop O’Dowd boys basketball team continued its terrific run down south at the Holiday Classic at Torrey Pines on Wednesday when it beat St. Edward-Ohio to advance to the championship game of the top-flight National Division. The tournament at Torrey Pines is basically the boys equivalent of the West Coast Jamboree and the National Division is the equivalent of the Platinum Division.

O’Dowd will take on undefeated state power Long Beach Poly in tonight’s 8:15 p.m. championship game. Click here for a link to all the scores from the tournament as well as game casts from each game as it happens, including tonight’s championship game. Also, be sure to check online tonight and in tomorrow’s paper for coverage of the game, which will be brought to us by former BANG-East Bay sports writer and the originator of the Prep Corner blog Michael Bower. He’s in San Diego and will be covering the game for us.
