Jackson Stormo made some clutch plays down the stretch for the San Marcos boys basketball team, leading the Royals to their biggest win of the young season, a  66-63 decision over CIF-SS 2AA Division second-ranked Colony on Wednesday in Ontario.

The loss was Colony's first at home since Jan. 5 of last year, according to San Marcos coach Landon Boucher.

With the score tied at 63, the 6-foot-9 Stormo blocked a shot and grabbed a rebound. At the offensive end, he passed to a cutting Ryan Godges who knocked down a two-point shot for a 65-63 lead. 

Beau Allen made a huge steal with eight seconds left and David Frohling was fouled. He made 1 of 2 free throws with two seconds left and Colony missed a desperation shot from half court at the buzzer.

San Marcos, the No. 5 team in the 2A Division, improves to 9-2.

Stormo was a force for the Royals, producing 18 points, 20 rebounds and eight blocks. Nate Fay was key, scoring 13 points and grabbing seven rebounds; Frohling had 11 points and Stef Korfas had nine points and eight assists.

"Jackson was huge for us tonight, the way he defended and rebounded was really special," Boucher said. "I want to give credit to Nate Fay and David Frohling, they are doing a really good job for us by giving us a little bit of everything."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
