ROD VEAL, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
Orange Lutheran's CJ Hankins knocks over JSerra's Blake McBride as he tries to score during Wednesday's game at Orange Lutheran.

No. 4 JSerra can't match Orange Lutheran's balance

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

ORANGE - Coaches like to talk about “team effort.” Orange Lutheran certainly got one Wednesday night.

All 11 Lancers who played made some type of contribution to their 74-64 win over JSerra in the Trinity League opener for both at Orange Lutheran.

CJ Hankins led Orange Lutheran (9-7), unranked in Orange County, with 17 points, 15 of them in the fourth quarter. Keisean Lucier-South scored six of his 11 points in the fourth quarter and Zach Van Matre added 10 points as 10 Lutheran players scored.

Johnnie Vassar, a senior guard who committed to Northwestern, led No. 4 JSerra (9-5) with 27 points. He was 13 for 17 at the free-throw line.

Lutheran coach Chris Nordstrom said the depth the Lancers displayed is typical.

“This is the nature of our team,” he said. “A lot of guys provide the efforts on different nights.”

Jayce Johnson, a 6-foot-11 sophomore transfer from Mater Dei, made his JSerra debut.
