Royals fall to Mission Hills in semifinals at Christmas Classic

Mission Hills stormed out of the gates to take an early lead and the host Royals never recovered. The Mission Prep boys basketball team lost 62-45 in the Elite Division semifinals on Friday night at its 14th annual Christmas Classic.

The Royals fell to 6-3 on the season and finish the Classic at 4pm against Taft at 4pm on Saturday.

Mission Prep trailed 11-7 after the first quarter and trailed 27-23 at the half. They closed the gap, but things got out of control in the fourth quarter when the Royals were called for an intentional foul and a technical foul.

Connor Woolpert scored a team-high 13 points for the Royals before he fouled out. Andy Rowley added 8 points.

Mission Hills' two stars each scored 15 points. Kibret Woldemichel, a 5-8 guard, scored a majority of points from the outside, while 7-0 Pac-12 prospect Kameron Rooks dominated the inside.

Mission Hills plays Miramonte for the Elite Division championship at 7 pm on Saturday night.
