CALEXICO, Calif. – The Vincent Memorial Scots boys basketball team has been red hot; especially in the second half of the regular season, where they’ve won 11 consecutive games in the home stretch.
For all accounts, they ended the regular season with a 19-8 overall record and unbeaten 8-0 in Manzanita League play. This was good enough to lock them in as a third overall seed in the CIF-SD Section Division 4 Playoffs and they took advantage of their high seed in the first round.
The Scots got off to a fast start against the 14th seeded Chula Vista Spartans, with early points by Jose Delamaza, Carlo Felix, Fabian Arciegna and Jose Corbala to take the early 11-3 lead. Since then, Vincent never looked back as they laid down a big first round statement running over the Spartans 77-28.
