As a team, Los Osos (18-11) shot 54 percent from the field – including 42 percent from 3-point range – to give the Baseline League its first victory of the postseason. Three league teams were swept out of the playoffs in Wednesday’s wild-card round. “Our goal was to have fun, because when we go out and have fun, we can’t be stopped,” Richard said. “I feel like we’re on a mission, like we’re going to really go far in this tournament.” Los Osos, the No. 15 seed, will advance to play either wild-card entry Beverly Hills or No. 1 seed Redondo Union on Tuesday at a yet-to-be-determined site. Diamond Bar (16-12) won’t get that chance. After finishing third in the Sierra League, the Brahmas entered the postseason hoping to pull an upset or two and see where it got them. “If we can get our bigs involved in the game by giving them touches, it opens everything else up for us,” Smith said. Six-foot-9 seniors Jordan Richard and Cameron Khoury combined for 29 points and 27 rebounds to dominate the inside game and Mide Osifeso scored a game-high 20 points mostly on the strength of his outside shooting. “We were our own worst enemies at times,” coach J.T. Cameron said. “We couldn’t get our of our own way.” The Brahmas aimed to stop Los Osos from getting dribble penetration, and found occasional success. But even when they played good defense, an untimely turnover seemed to doom their efforts. Trailing by 11 at the half and by 20 just seconds into the fourth quarter, Diamond Bar still felt it had a chance until leading scorer Victor Lee got his fifth foul with 5:06 remaining. Lee led the Brahmas with 19 points, with Elijah York (17 points) and Alan Jones (16) also reaching double digits. DIVISION I-A Chino Hills 76, Riverside J.W. North 62 Cory Harkey scored 27 points with 13 rebounds as Chino Hills proved to be the better Huskies (22-6) against visiting J.W. North. Nick Turner scored 24 points for Chino Hills, which advances to the second round for the second year in a row. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
