San Clemente withstood a furious press from a quick Compton team to win and advance to the Tustin Classic Semifinals. The Tritons started strong and got out to a 20-8 lead to end the first quarter. A slow second quarter saw Compton tie the game at 21-21, before a pair of Jacob Nemeth 3-pointers and an 8 point run to end the half put the Tritons up 29-21 at the break. The second half was more of the same, as San Clemente pulled ahead, only to have Compton claw back to within striking range. An all-around strong game by the Triton Varsity team finally ended the threat, and the game finished with a 53-49 victory. Nemeth led the scoring with 18. Anthony Smetona had his mid-range shot going and finished with 11. An even distribution of scoring also included Baggs and Egbert with 5, Walker and Marshall with 4, Kane, Martino and Ihani with 2.
