Not only did the Bruins fall so did Colfax. This will be the first meeting between two of the area's top teams. Colfax fell to a tough Del Campo team with a chance to win with a shot that hit the rim and fell off the iron as the buzzer sounded. Colfax played well but the tournament's defending champ won in the end.
Placer on the other hand used great three point shooting as well as pounding the ball into the paint as they dropped San Juan by 10 plus points. The Hillman jumped out to an early 10 point lead but the Spartans chipped away and knotted the score by the half. Placer made 5 of 8 three point shots which gave the Hillman breathing room winning 66-54 as they were the only local team to move to semi-final round.
