Beckman can't keep pace with Camarillo

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

TUSTIN – The season came to an abrupt end for the Beckman boys basketball team Friday night, as the Patriots found themselves overmatched in the second half and lost to Camarillo, 80-50, in a CIF-SS Division 1A second-round matchup.

The visitors completed their 95-mile trek to Beckman roughly 30 minutes before tipoff. The long journey did not deter the sixth-seeded Scorpions from advancing to the quarterfinals.

Jaime Jaquez had a game-high 35 points and 11 rebounds for the Scorpions (24-6). The 6-foot-5 freshman also contributed four blocked shots.

The leading scorers for Beckman (19-9) were Michael Yee (14 points) and Kai Weissberger (10).

The game began with a frantic pace that yielded more turnovers than baskets. Jaquez had eight points in the opening quarter and had help from Justin Nguyen, who drilled a pair of 3-pointers.

Yee also hit a shot from beyond the arc that gave the Patriots an 11-10 lead in the first quarter, which was the last time Beckman led.

Jaquez ended the second quarter with consecutive baskets, pushing Camarillo’s lead to 32-21. Shane Taleisnik knocked down a 3-pointer to bring Beckman within eight just before halftime.

Jaquez and Nguyen combined for 29 of the Scorpions’ 32 first-half points.

Beckman began the second half with sloppy ball movement, which led to Camarillo doubling its lead early in the third quarter. Jonah Cottrell’s 3-pointer gave the Scorpions a 43-26 lead and forced a timeout by Beckman with 5:04 left in the third.

Camarillo scored 48 second-half points.
