Caden Starr scored 13 of his 16 points, which was second on SCCS, in the first half. “We started a little flat on defense,” Caden Starr said. “But we settled down and from there we were fine.” SCCS never let Corcoran back within single digits in the second half. A 3-pointer from Justin Collins gave the Cards their first 20-point lead of the night at 63-42, with 5:05 to play in the game. A three-point play from Noah Veluzat put them up 70-50 with just under two minutes in the game. Veluzat was third on the team with 13 points and Collins had 11 points to go with five assists and five rebounds.

Corcoran (20-11) senior guard Roy Salinas led all scorers with 28 points. “I’ll give (Salinas) credit, he was hitting shots early in the game,” Jordan Starr said. “But I think we were able to buckle down on him and took care of business.” The Cards picked up their second win as a program in the CIF State boy basketball tournament. The first came in 2014 when they topped Kern Valley in the first round of the Division 5 tournament.
