Recapping A Tarkanian Classic For The Ages

The championship game of the Platinum Division of the Tarkanian Classic, held in Las Vegas, came down to two undefeated California powerhouses. Chino Hills, boasting the star power of two UCLA commits extended their winning streak to 46 and took home the Platinum Division title with an 84-73 win against Mater Dei.

LiAngelo Ball scored 25 points while his younger brother LaMelo Ball added 21 points in the win. If those names sound familiar, it’s because they are the younger brother of current UCLA guard and projected NBA lottery pick Lonzo Ball. LiAngelo Ball and Eli Scott, also of Chino Hills, were named tournament co-MVPs. LiAngelo Ball put on a scoring clinic the entire tournament, while Eli Scott anchored the team’s defense and put up big numbers in the rebounding department. Justice Sueing led the way for Mater Dei, scoring 27 points in a losing effort.

The third place game of the Tarkanian Classic’s Platinum Division featured a showdown between the host team Bishop Gorman and Roosevelt. The back-and-forth game came down to the wire. Freshman Noah Taitz came up clutch for the hometown team, crossing up his defender before hitting the game-winning layup just before time expired to give Bishop Gorman a 66-64 win.
