The San Marcos boys ran into a hot-shooting squad from Newbury Park at the Battle by the Beach Showcase at St. Bonaventure Saturday, losing 82-37.

The Royals jumped out to a 7-0 lead at the beginning of the game, but the Panthers quickly found their shooting touch.

Newbury Park had four players in double figures, led by Cooper Lucas with 29 points.

“They were just too much for us tonight,” San Marcos coach James Kinzler said. “This one will give us lots to learn from as we move ahead. Proud of our guys for working hard each possession and playing to the final buzzer.”

Wyatt Miller led the Royals with nine points and Andre McCullough chipped in with seven.
