Game of the Week: San Marcos at Santa Barbara Boys’ Basketball

Royals Take on Dons in January 16 Crosstown Showdown

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this Game of the Week incorrectly gave San Marcos High School as the location of the game; the correct location is S.B. High. The amended version with the correct location information appears below.

The Dons gave San Marcos their best shot last year, but the Royals swept the Channel League and won the CIF 2A championship with an all-senior starting lineup led by 6’8” Jackson Stormo, now at Pepperdine. A year later, Santa Barbara returns most of its starters, including 6’8” junior Bryce Warrecker and senior guard Jackson Hamilton, and the Dons have improved from a 7-9 record last season (when the Thomas Fire forced the cancellation of games) to 19-3 entering this week. Senior guard Beau Allen has been playing big for San Marcos. First place will be at stake Wednesday as both teams are undefeated in the league. 7pm. J.R. Richards Gym, Santa Barbara High, 700 E. Anapamu St. Call 966-9101 x5010. $4-$6.
