The loss won't prevent the Cubs (24-2, 10-2) from being selected for the Open Division playoffs, but it will likely change their seeding. The team is having to adjust to the absence of standout point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright, who left school last week.

Chaminade won its fifth consecutive game, defeating St. Francis, 69-59. Jack Williams finished with 27 points and 13 rebounds. Michael Oguine added 11 points and seven assists.
