Dushone Brown made two game-changing three-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with 20 points to help No. 6-seeded Gardena knock off top-seeded Granada Hills Kennedy, 55-47, in the City Section Division II basketball final on Friday night at Roybal.

Brown’s three-pointer with 6:04 left gave Gardena (17-13) a 41-32 lead. When Kenendy (27-7) closed to 44-40 with two minutes left, Brown delivered another three-pointer to end the Golden Cougars’ momentum.

"It was our destiny to win it," Brown said.

Dom Vargas finished with 18 points and Chris Gonzalez 14 for Kennedy, which fell behind, 23-19 at halftime.
