San Jose Mitty, defending state champion in Division II, defeated the Hornets 71-60 in the event named for Milwaukee Bucks NBA player Gooden, who starred at El Cerrito High, near Oakland.
It was the end of a grueling trip for the Hornets, who rode north Friday in two 15-passenger vans. They returned Sunday afternoon.
Lincoln (5-2) received 10 first-place votes in the poll of 14 sportswriters and sportscasters. Cathedral Catholic was second with four first-place votes.

After a 76-62 victory at Pasadena, Cathedral gears up for the Long Beach Jordan-hosted, 14-team Public-vs-Private Showcase Saturday at Long Beach City College. Three other San Diego teams will participate.
