Upland Blasts Santa Monica in Holiday Classic Final, 58-43

San Marcos loses in OT to take fourth place. DP, Santa Barbara and Bishop all win final games.

Kevin Bradshaw scored 34 points to lead Upland to a convincing 58-34 victory over Santa Monica in the championship game of the Santa Barbara Holiday Classic on Saturday. Bradshaw was named tourney MVP for his efforts.

Santa Monica had enjoyed that championship flavor at last year’s tournament, but the Vikings were relegated to runner-up by Bradshaw & Company in a game that was never close.

In other action, San Marcos let a nine-point fourth-quarter lead slip away and then fell in overtime to Corona del Mar, 72-66, in the third-place game. Brian Pearson (18 points), Nick Marquez (17) and Trevor Hopkins (15) continued to blaze from three-point distance with 10 treys between them. The Royals are now 11-4 on the year.

Dos Pueblos finished strong with a 61-52 decision over Mira Costa, notching three-straight wins after a first-round loss to Santa Monica. Ryan Beall?s 20 points, 16 rebounds and nine assists led the Chargers to the consolation bracket championship. Eventual all-tournament selection Sean Park added 14 points and 12 boards.

Santa Barbara balanced its offensive output and took care of the ball to top Burroughs, 74-59, to close 2007 tournament action. Alex Bartlett (15 points), Ben Weisman (12), Spencer Thomas (11) and Marc Millner (10) bolstered local phenom Roberto Nelson, who delivered nine points, nine rebounds and nine assists.

Bishop Diego finished the tournament with a 59-50 win over San Marcos’ JV squad.

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!
