O.C.: Boys' basketball top 10


1. Mater Dei (17-2) — Blew away Middle Village (NY) Christ the King behind Xavier Johnson and Stanley Johnson and, after a slow start, did the same thing to JSerra in a Trinity League battle. Next: vs. Santa Margarita, Wednesday.

2. Capistrano Valley (19-2)Aleks Lipovic's three-pointer was the decisive blow to Mission Viejo's 18-game winning streak and South Coast League superiority. Next: at El Toro, Friday.

3. Mission Viejo (19-2) — Diablos long winning streak is history, but they can still salvage a share of the league title if they win out. Next: at Aliso Niguel, Friday.

4. JSerra (12-6) — Coming off win over Orange Lutheran, the Lions were hoping to make a better showing against Mater Dei; a 34-point loss indicates there's still work to do. Next: vs. St. John Bosco, Wednesday.

5. Orange Lutheran (12-6) — Without Gabe York (appendicitis) the losing streak reaches four games with setbacks to La Verne Lutheran and St. John Bosco; worse news, he may miss additional games when he's healthy for playing in an adult league game. Next: vs. Servite, Wednesday.
