Facing a ranked opponent in the Tustin Classic Semi-Finals, the Triton Varsity team got off to a slow start and, despite a furious rally, was unable to recover. Down 17-6 after the first quarter, 31-17 at half and by as much as 23 in the second half, San Clemente finally found its game and rallied to bring the game within 4 with under 2 minutes to play. A group led by Nick Martino, who hit a key 3-pointer, Mario Medrano, Luke Powell, Jay Baggs and a combination of Josh Walker and Max Marshall, helped lead the Tritons back toward the end of the 3rd and into the 4th quarter. The Tritons caught fire in the 4th, scoring 25 points behind four 3-pointers by Jacob Nemeth, but ultimately could not climb out of the hole created by the first three quarters. Scoring for San Clemente were Nemeth with 20, Walker 8, Marshall and Baggs 6, Martino 5, Smetona, Medrano and Ihani 2.
