There was little doubt that the Southern California Division I Regional basketball playoff opener matching Chino Hills and 6-foot-9 center Onyeka Okongwu against Mayfair and standout junior guard Josh Christopher would end up being a classic.
Okongwu fouled out with 20.8 seconds left and finished with 28 points. Christopher rallied Mayfair from a 14-point deficit. He finished with 44 points.
Chino Hills received help from Will Pluma, who scored 18 points, and Nick Manor-Hall, who had 16 points.
When Michael Ofoegbu of Mayfair scored with 4.6 seconds left, Chino Hills’ lead was down to a single point. But Mayfair had no timeouts left and was assessed a technical foul for delay of game when the ball was touched out of bounds. Hampering the Huskies was Okongwu getting into foul trouble. He was pulled after picking up his third foul with 3:43 left in the second quarter and Chino Hills ahead 23-8. By halftime, Mayfair was down only 25-19. Then Okongwu got a fourth foul for a technical in the fourth. That allowed Christopher to attack. He scored 31 points in the second half.
