Falcons boys advance to CIFSD quarterfinals
The Scripps Ranch High School boys varsity basketball team will face 14th-seeded Canyon Crest Academy at home at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21 in the quarterfinals of the CIF San Diego Section 2020 Boys’ Basketball Championships.
In an upset win, the 11th-seeded Falcons defeated sixth-seeded Oceanside High 52-43 on Feb. 18 I the first round of the championship tournament.
The low scoring game was a sign of two closely matched teams fighting for the win. As tightly matched as each team was, it was Scripps Ranch that remained ahead most of the game, with Oceanside only being able to tie at one point in the game.
While each member of the Scripps team contributed to the win, the following individuals stood out:
Andy Manso – Senior – Scoring 15 points
Grant Norberg – Senior – Scoring 12 points
Josh Cox – Senior – Scoring 10 points
Mekhi Shaw – Senior – Scoring 8 points
