The Mission Prep boys basketball team lost 79-73 to end its season against Campbell Hall in the second round of the CIF-Southern California Division 4 regional playoffs in North Hollywood on Saturday night.
Quinton Adlesh had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists in his final game for the Royals (25-8). Brandon Jones added 18 points, and Carter Gran had 12.
“It came down to not getting a few stops in key situations,” Mission Prep coach Terrance Harris said. “But we competed extremely well in this game and did a lot of things to follow the game plan we had in place.”
The Royals trailed 38-32 at halftime before cutting the deficit to three by the end of the third quarter, but couldn’t make up the rest of the margin in the fourth quarter.
The loss marked the final game for seniors Adlesh and Jones, and both left their mark in scoring a combined 49 of the Royals’ 73 points.
“We had an outstanding group of seniors this year,” Harris said, “and their great commitment to the team showed throughout the season.”
