Boys Basketball Roundup: Beverly Hills can not catch up to Serra’s speed at the Westchester Tournament
Beverly Hills had a surprising 29-25 lead on Serra at halftime and pushed the lead to seven in the early moments of the second half.
Then it all went down hill from there.
The Cavaliers sped up the pace of the game and the Normans broke down on both side of the ball in a 66-53 loss in the first round of the Westchester Tournament.
Beverly Hills’ center Ronan Massana had 12 of his 18 points on the first half, but the pace forced them to rely too much on outside shooting and away from their inside presence leading to numerous fast break opportunities for Serra.
The Venice Boys and Girls Club baseball team will be honored for winning the Junior Division (under 16) of the RBI World Series in a pregame ceremony at Dodger Stadium tonight.

Westchester’s Aaron Greenfield is also a member of the squad.
The victory ended the Dominican Republic’s three-year reign as champions.
