2013: Cathedral No. 1 as Calendar Hits January

After five weeks of nonleague games and tournaments in far-flung locations, San Diego Section basketball teams begin the run to the playoffs in earnest this week.

Cathedral emerged as the frontrunner in the third UT-San Diego poll with all 13 possible first-place votes.  The Dons got a head start on most other clubs when they opened the Eastern League season last Friday with a win at home over St. Augustine 67-64.

No. 2 Hoover beat Canyon Country Canyon 78-55 on Saturday.  No. 4 Army-Navy dropped a 62-55 decision to Foothill of Henderson, Nevada, in the host school tournament.  No. 5 La Costa Canyon won its division of a Palm Desert tournament by knocking off unbeaten Mission Viejo 70-58.

Preseason No. 1 Lincoln lost star player Tyree Robinson for the season with a broken foot.  The Hornets were blown out in two of four games in the Westlake Village Oaks Christian tournament and are 6-5.
