As the games become more important and the pressure rises, Tyler Dorsey of Pasadena Maranatha is answering the call to duty.
He scored a career-high 52 points on Saturday night to lead Maranatha past Chaminade, 85-60, in a quarterfinal game of the Division IV Southern California Regionals.
"Tyler put us on his back," Coach Tim Tucker said.
Dorsey was 14 of 19 from the field and 17 of 26 on free throws. He had seven threes.
Michael Oguine scored 27 points for Chaminade. There was a scary moment in the third quarter when former Chaminade center Trevor Stanback, while going up for a dunk, got hit hard by Chaminade's Bar Milo and hit the floor face down. He was helped off the court and later returned in the fourth quarter.
There were 51 fouls called in the game and three technicals.
