“I think it was a little tough,” Emerson said of coming back from the two-week layoff. “We were a little gassed, a little out of shape, but I think it started with defense. Our shots weren’t falling in the beginning, but we turned it up on defense and the defense turned into offense on fastbreaks.”

Kai Gillies had a game-high 17 points for Laguna Beach (10-7).
