Walker soars for 24, but Righetti loses again at Christmas Classic

The Warriors continue to battle, but come up short after three days of Mission Prep's 14th annual Christmas Classic. The Righetti boys basketball team lost 59-49 to Marin Catholic in an Elite Division Bracket game on Friday afternoon.

The Warriors dropped to 0-3 at the Classic.

Sophomore sensation Cameron Walker led the Warriors with 24 points. He's averaging 25 points per contest in the tournament. Walker is among the many Division I recruits at this year's tournament. He's getting looks from UC Irvine, UCLA, Cal Poly, USC, Stanford and Harvard according to tournament officials.

6-4 junior Frankie Platero added 16 points for the Warriors.

The Warriors build an early 8 point lead in the game, but the Wildcats quickly took the lead for good. Nick Calcaterra hit a three from the corner at the buzzer to give Marin a 17-11 lead after the first quarter. It marked the third-straight game the Warriors were burned by a shot at the horn.

Calcaterra, a 6-2 senior guard, scored Marin's first 21 points of the game. He finished with 32 points. Calcaterra poured in 27 in Marin's 54-47 loss to Mission Prep. He averaged 2 points per game last season as a backup guard.

Righetti will try to end the tournament on a winning note on Saturday. The Warriors face Campbell Hall at 11:30 am.
