Kehillah boys drop CCS Division V hoops opener to Mustangs

The Central Coast Section boys basketball playoffs got underway Friday afternoon with an entertaining Division V game, won by host Mountain View Academy, 55-50, over Kehillah Jewish.

The Mustangs (18-3) are scheduled to play Pacific Bay Christian at 8 p.m. in Pacifica on Saturday but are in negotiations to see about about rearranging the schedule so that both the boys and girls teams can play back-to-back instead of at two different venues. Robert Hicks, like Eastside Prep's Donovan Blythe, coaches both teams.

Kehillah's David Kelmar who scored 11 points, hit a 3-pointer with 3:13 remaining to play, tying the game at 48.

MV Academy responded with a basket from Kai Weber, who scored 14 points, and a 3-pointer from 6-foot-5 junior Caleb Onuonga, who finished with 25 points and nearly 20 rebounds. He was 5 of 7 from 3-point range.

Guy Manor, one of three seniors who played for Kehillah, made it 53-50 with nine seconds left but Jason Li hit a pair of foul shots to clinch it.
