Four of the eight games played in Southern California and Northern California on Friday night in the Open Division state playoffs went into overtime and seven of the eight were decided by seven points or less.

The one game that wasn't close involved unbeaten Chino Hills, which defeated Immanuel, 103-71.

Among the notes:

Westchester took Bishop Montgomery into overtime before losing, 72-58, despite the fact the Comets lost the expected City player of the year, Keith Fisher, to an injury in the first quarter. Sophomore David Singleton continued to perform well against top teams, scoring 27 points.

T.J. Leaf scored 21 points in Foothills Christian's 50-46 win over Mater Dei, which received 18 points from Spencer Freedman.

San Diego Cathedral Catholic upset Sierra Canyon on the road, 83-80, in overtime.
