Cypress, Crean Lutheran, Aliso Niguel, Brea Olinda and La Habra win

CYPRESS 76, BEVERLY HILLS 68: The Centurions captured a victory at the Rajahs Tournament at Indio Tuesday night. Jonah Kim had 21 points and made four 3-pointers, Jonas Hanson had 17 points and three 3-pointers and nine rebounds and Kody Papke had 10 points to lead Cypress.

“The boys had a different focus today,” said Cypress Coach Derek Mitchell. “I think we had too much of a relaxing break coming off our three wins and the Christmas holiday. Today, we looked to be that team who won three in a row again.”
