Corona Centennial, Harvard-Westlake to play for Open Division regional title

The game that many hoped would take place in February, but fell through, is finally set to take place in the Southern California Regional Open Division boys’ basketball championship.

Harvard-Westlake (31-2), which was upset by St. John Bosco in Southern Section Open Division pool play, will finally face Corona Centennial in a highly anticipated Tuesday night game at Centennial. The winner will advance to the state championship on March 11 in Sacramento.

Centennial (30-3), the defending state champion, defeated San Diego St. Augustine 89-67 in the semifinals on Saturday night. Mike Price scored 24 points and Jared McCain had 23. Harvard-Westlake avenged its previous loss by defeating St. John Bosco 69-64 in a road victory. The Wolverines had not played in 15 days, but were focused on earning a chance to play Centennial.

Brady Dunlap, who said the Wolverines would “wear the memory of that 62-55 loss on their sleeves on February 14,” contributed 18 points. Jacob Huggins added 15 points. Christian Horry made a major offensive error late in the game and also scored two three-pointers off the bench.

‘We’re coming for them. We’re going to do our very best,” Dunlap told Spectrum SportsNet about playing Centennial.
