BAKERSFIELD – Price has a 30-21 halftime lead over St. Mary’s of Berkeley in the CIF Division IV state championship game at Rabobank Arena.
Price’s Richard Solomon leads all scorers with 13 points. He is five of six from the field. Teammate Allen Crabbe has seven points and seven rebounds.
Glenn Baral has eight points to lead St. Mary’s at halftime.
Price led 12-11 after the first quarter and opened up a nine-point lead early in the second quarter.
Part of St. Mary’s strategy was to keep Price out of the paint and deny the players any easy looks at the basket. Price penetrated on several occasions, throwing down some impressive dunks on three of those trips down the court.
Price is outrebounding St. Mary’s 25-9 in the first half. Solomon and Skylar Spencer each have four rebounds for Price.
