Nothing has come easy for Los Angeles Loyola this week.

The Cubs had to pull out a victory over Harvard-Westlake in double overtime on Monday night. On Wednesday, Alemany's Bear Henderson made a three-pointer at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

But Loyola (20-6, 10-2) responded with an 89-79 overtime victory over Alemany to win the Mission League championship by one game over Encino Crespi.

Trey Mason scored 24 points, including five three-pointers. Thomas Welsh had 18 points and 11 rebounds. Henderson led Alemany with 18 points.

Crespi defeated Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, 72-33. Aaron Lacombe had 15 points.

Chaminade's Jaron Martin became the school's all-time career scoring leader after finishing with 33 points in the Eagles' 67-51 win over St. Francis. Martin made eight three-pointers. Kyle Leufroy had 22 points for St. Francis. The old record was 1,788 career points set by assistant coach Scott Borchart.

In the Del Rey League, No. 1-ranked Bishop Montgomery completed a perfect 26-0 regular season with a 74-34 win over St. Bernard. Justin Bibbins had 17 points, Lamond Murray Jr. had 15 and Stefan Jovanovic added 11 points and 12 rebounds.
