February 2, 2008 |  6:36 pm

Rebound Jordan Hamilton had 25 points and 14 rebounds and the Dominguez boys' basketball team dominated Santa Margarita on the backboards in a 59-55 victory Saturday afternoon in the Nike Extravaganza at Mater Dei High.

Hamilton, a 6-foot-7 junior forward who transferred from Dorsey in the off-season, scored 13 points in the opening quarter.

After the Eagles twice cut the deficit to two points in the final minute, Robert Mandingo had a tip-in off Hamilton's missed jumper, and then hit two free throws with 12.9 seconds remaining.

The third-ranked Dons out-rebounded fourth-ranked Santa Margarita, 42-23.

Zack Zaragosa scored 16 points, Jaime Serna had 14 and Klay Thompson 11 for Santa Margarita.

Westchester is up next against Concord De La Salle in a SoCal vs. NorCal matchup.
