Game of the Day
No. 3 Westchester (25-2) vs. Brooklyn (N.Y.) Lincoln (17-8)
Today at Sovereign Bank Arena, Trenton, N.J., 3 p.m. PST
Why it matters: Westchester is taking on a Lincoln team it already defeated, 68-56, in December in the City of Palms Classic. The Railsplitters, led by standout shooting guard Lance Stephenson, are in the midst of a busy stretch in which they will play four games in four days. “I’d like to play someone we haven’t played, but it doesn’t matter,” Westchester Coach Ed Azzam said. “They’re going to be motivated to play us because we beat them.”
Sylmar 106, Reseda 101 (OT)
Leading contributors: Senior forward Tyler Honeycutt had 26 points, 20 rebounds and seven blocks for Sylmar. Senior forward Ryan Watkins scored 31 points and senior guard Randall Harris had 27 points and 13 assists for Reseda.
The scoop: The host Spartans made the plays they needed to to win the run-and-gun contest and gain a split with Reseda in the regular-season series.
Why it matters: Sylmar secured a co-championship alongside Reseda in the Valley Mission League. Reseda probably will still be the top-seeded team in the City Section Division II playoffs and Sylmar strengthened its case for a seeding among the top eight in Division I.
Records: Sylmar 18-7, 9-1; Reseda 19-7, 9-1.
