In the recent CIF-SS Division 1 poll, the Saints are No. 7, making them prime candidates for an Open Division spot, which would be a first for the program.
The Saints are fresh off a 58-57 overtime win over Harvard-Westlake, which saw Lorenzo Marsh knock down the game-winner with less than five seconds left.
In the Moore League, Long Beach Poly and Millikan are both off to 2-0 starts while Wilson is at 1-0. Compton, Lakewood, and Jordan have one loss apiece and Cabrillo is off to an 0-2 start.
