Hart hoops inches closer

The Hart Indians boys basketball team is so close.

After defeating the Saugus Centurions 72-46 at Saugus High on Tuesday, the Indians need to beat Golden Valley on Friday to clinch at least a share of their first Foothill League title since 2007.

“We just want to continue to play well. We’re not thinking about that,” said Hart head coach Tom Kelly.

Saugus (9-16 overall, 0-7 Foothill League) was challenging early on Tuesday.

The Indians (20-2, 7-0) had trouble containing Saugus guard Jacob Tobon in the first quarter, as he scored 12 of the Centurions’ 15 points in the frame.

The winless-in-league Cents trailed the Indians 20-15 after the first.

But Hart’s defense clamped down thereafter.

Saugus scored just 31 points in the game’s final three quarters, as the Indians were relentless with their backcourt defense constantly forcing 10-second violations and timeouts.

Tobon added another 13 points in the third quarter and finished with a game-high 25 points, but no other Centurion scored more than seven points.

Hart was led by Lewis Stallworth with 19 points, with Myles Franklin right behind at 17 points.

Frank Lonsinger and Andrew MacArthur each chipped in with 10.

The Indians get a Golden Valley team with one Foothill win on Friday on the road.

Saugus will look to get in the win column at West Ranch on Friday.
