In all, 13 Mission Prep boys basketball players checked into the game, 10 of them scored and the Royals held visiting Pacific Grove to three single-digit scoring quarters in a convincing 58-32 win on Monday night to improve to 16-3 overall and extend their winning streak to seven games.

Cal Poly-bound center Zach Allmon finished with a game-high 16 points for the Royals, who were ahead 17-5 after the first quarter and never looked back. Andy Rowley and Connor Woolpert each had 10 points, with Rowley recording five steals and five assists. Quinton Adlesh added nine points with five steals and five assists.

“We got off to a quick start with a 17-5 first quarter,” Mission Prep coach Terrance Harris said. “I thought we played well defensively and set the tone. Everybody got a chance to contribute. Tonight, it was great to see some of the players who don’t start get in there and do a great job executing.”

No Pacific Grove scorer had more than eight points.
