No. 11 Campolindo 51, Miramonte 49

All signs were pointing toward a Miramonte victory at home on Friday night against rival Campolindo.

The Matadors got a three-quarters-length basket from Chase Miller as time expired to end the third quarter, a shot so jaw-dropping that the Miramonte student section, part of a boisterous standing-room-only crowd, nearly spilled onto the court in jubilee.

Then Miramonte kept the points coming, building a seven-point advantage that had Campo wobbling.

But the Cougars were not done.

They rallied down the stretch, taking advantage of the interior after 6-foot-5 senior Thomas Zwahlen fouled out with about three minutes to go, and went on to a dramatic victory.

Campo scored the final nine points as it improved to 19-4 overall and 8-1 in the Diablo Athletic League.

Dylan Mansour had 14 points and Gavin Rendle finished with 12 points to lead Campo.

Miramonte got 13 points apiece from Zwahlen and Miller.
