It was rough night for the McClymonds Warriors.
The #1 seeded Monte Vista Mustangs immediately neutralized MVP Deion Ellis at the CIF semi-final game Tuesday night.
Hitting three 3-pointed in a row, the Monte Vista Mustangs bounded to a great start. At one point, the score was 15-10, with Monte Vista leading by five. By halftime, the Mustangs lead 33-17. Warriors were never able to catch up, let alone lead.

The lockers were festooned in orange. Students donned black for the Black-Out against Skyline.
Hoop-Coming generated much excitement at McClymonds today with a 6th period rally in the gym, teacher-student game and dancing, as the school’s basketball teams prepared to play rival Skyline this afternoon.
“It was sectioned off. All the classes were by themselves. It all felt kind of dead,” said freshman Keyshawn Roberts. “I expected it to be really fun.”
“We wanted to encourage school spirit, to get everyone hyped for the game tonight,” said Anastasia Walton, a senior and a member of the student council, who helped make posters hailing the rally.
The boys’ basketball team (17-8) remains undefeated atop the Oakland Athletic League (9-0), while the Lady Warriors sit in second place (6-3 in OAL) behind an undefeated Skyline.
