Wallenberg boys eke out win 

Michael Chiu made three of four free throws in the final 8 seconds and finished with 17 points to lead Wallenberg past Washington Tuesday in an Academic Athletic Association prep boys’ basketball game at Kezar Pavilion.

The senior guard scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half, including back-to-back 3-pointers in the third quarter after the Eagles had gone on a 15-0 run to take a 29-20 lead. He then punctuated the period with another trey with 20 seconds remaining to put the Bulldogs (16-2, 6-0 AAA) ahead 34-33.

"My man Michael stepped up big-time," Wallenberg forward Chibuzo Emeka said. "He hit some huge threes, made some big free throws and played great defense."

Emeka scored the first eight points of the fourth quarter for the Bulldogs, and finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. Isiah Pfitzer led Washington with 20 points, and Darnell Batte scored all eight of his points in the fourth quarter for the Eagles (11-6, 4-3).

Senior Maggie McCarthy wants you to know her Wildcats are no longer underdogs.

Erin Grady scored 12 points and McCarthy and Rachel Hatch both chipped in 11 as the host Wildcats (12-6, 7-1 WCAL) eased past the Gators (11-8, 0-7).
