Trinity Knights boys basketball went virtually untested in its 77-36 first round win over the Southwestern Academy Suns in the CIF-Southern Section Division VI playoffs on Wednesday night at The Master’s College.

“We were just pressing and once we went up 12-0 we pulled it off and started to work on things we can improve on,” said Trinity head coach John Brooks.

The Knights entered the game as the bracket’s second overall seed, while Southwestern Academy (8-7 overall) came in as the 31st seed.

After entering the second quarter up 31-3, it was apparent that no upset would occur.
Trinity ran a balanced offensive approach, with three players scoring in triple digits.

Knights forwards Ryan Brooks and Spencer Klehn led the way, combining for 22 points despite playing limited minutes due to the game’s lopsided score.

Marco Escribano added 10 points and four steals, while Colton Oshiro established team depth by adding seven points off the bench.

Trinity (15-5) enters the playoffs coming off a big road win over Lancaster Baptist.

The Knights roster is young, with seven freshmen and four sophomores, but that hasn’t stopped Trinity from claiming second place in the Heritage League and establishing itself as a Division VI power.

“At this point in the season, our players know what they have to do to win games,” Brooks said. “We have a lot of young players, sure, but that also means we have a higher ceiling.”

The Knights will face Hope Centre on Friday.
