Despite its loss in a CIF-Southern Section divisional final this past weekend, the Mission Prep boys basketball team is moving on to the state tournament, and the Royals learned their seed and first-round opponent on Sunday. 

Fifth-seeded Mission Prep (24-7) will host 12th-seeded Bakersfield Christian (17-13) at 7 p.m. on Wednesday in the first round of the Southern California Division IV regional bracket. 

The winner will likely travel to third-seeded Campbell Hall (24-9), which hosts 13th-seeded Los Angeles View Park (19-7) in the opening round.
