The Gaels welcomed new rival Coronado to the showcase by overcoming an early double-figure deficit at Cox Pavilion and scoring a nationally televised 70-62 victory.
Junior guard Jaden Hardy is averaging 34.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 9.4 assists for Coronado, which plays Bishop Gorman on Friday in the Big City Showdown.
Plenty of league titles and playoff seedings hang in the balance, and several games will determine how teams line up entering the postseason.
Liberty’s Julian Strawther scored 25 points in Friday’s 79-52 win over Tech, and a 3-pointer in the first quarter put him over the 2,000-point mark.
Jaden Hardy scored 26 points and had a bevy of highlight-reel passes that led to easy shots for teammates, and Coronado ran away for a 100-86 win over Liberty.
Which league is the most competitive? What are some can’t-miss player matchups? Can anybody upend the Gorman boys and Centennial girls dynasties?
