DJ Campos hit a fade away bank shot as time expired to give the Christopher High boys varsity basketball team a 71-70 victory over Alvarez in the opening round of the 32nd annual Bob Hagen Memorial Tournament on Thursday at Gilroy High.

“The kids are really fired up,” CHS head coach Kaden Bahner said. “It’s a good motivational win for us.”

Holding the lead and the ball with about three seconds left, the Eagles turned it over out of bounds to give the Cougars one final shot with seven-tenths of a second showing on the game clock. Bahner said he called an inbounds lob-pass from the corner. Andrew Foster tossed the ball to the far side of the rim where Campos caught and released the game winner as the buzzer sounded.

“Playing a few closes games this year, to finally get one is exciting,” Bahner said.

Wyatt Rocheleau posted a team-high 17 points, Marcus Harrell and Foster chipped in 11 points each, Evan Shapiro contributed nine, Nick Cordova had eight and Dillon Babb had seven.

The Cougars continue play at the tournament against San Benito tonight at 8 p.m. The Balers defeated the tournament’s defending champion Aptos 55-51 in their first game.
