WALLA WALLA, WA. - James Kelbert (190-G/F-98) and the No. 11 Pomona-Pitzer Men's Basketball team came away with a 58-37 win in Round One of the NCAA Tournament over Texas-Dallas on Friday night. Kelbert finished the night with nine points, six rebounds and three assists. The Sagehens took over the first half with a 13-0 run to extend their lead to 23-9 with just over four minutes remaining until halftime. The Comets tried to chip away at the lead late in the first half, but the exceptional three-point shooting by the Sagehens gave them a 30-16 lead heading into the locker room.
The Sagehens got off to another hot start and extended their lead to 20 points at 44-24, but Texas-Dallas started to mount what looked like a small comeback as they got within 13 points at 46-33 with 7:29 to go. The Sagehens regrouped and put up some points late in the second half as Pomona-Pitzer came away with their first NCAA Tournament win since 2003. With the win, the Sagehens improve to 26-2 overall and advance to the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.

Aubree Raimer and Greeley Central were bounced out of the Class 4A Great 8 by Holy Family, 52-42, in Broomfield Friday night. Central's loss snapped a 19-game winning streak dating to mid-December and ended the program's most successful season since 1981 when the Wildcats finished third at the state tournament in a vastly different sports landscape for girls and women. Central finished its season 24-2.
The Tigers started the third on a 15-0 run and outscored Central 18-6 in the third to take a 33-19 lead. Greeley Central outscored Holy Family 9-2 in the second quarter to cut the Tigers' lead to 15-13 at halftime. The Wildcats, though, couldn't rally for a second time in the game.
In the third quarter, Holy Family rediscovered its outside shot with 3-pointers and the Tigers ran their depth and athleticism at the Wildcats. Holy Family hit eight 3-pointers, with three of those in the third, and the Tigers' press forced Greeley Central into 15 turnovers.

Sincere Callwood and Simeon (18-14) survived and advanced after an overtime win against Brother Rice, 75-73, in a Class 4A regional final Friday night. Brother Rice (22-9) led 36-30 at halftime. Simeon seemed to adjust to the lively crowd and the cramped gym in the third quarter. The Wolverines also ramped up the defensive intensity. Simeon will face Marian Catholic in the Eisenhower Sectional semifinal on Wednesday.

Khailieo Terry and Champaign Central jumped on MacArthur in the extra period and then held off the Generals for a 71-70 victory and a spot in Tuesday's 7 p.m. sectional semifinal at Springfield Southeast against the host Spartans. Central (17-12) had its shot at a game-winner at the end of regulation after MacArthur (19-14) made just 1 of 2 free throws with 4 seconds to play. The Maroons had one goal - get the ball to Terry.
"My first goal was to go to the rim, but I saw (Punkay) in the corner so I just gave it up," said Terry, who finished with a team-high 22 points and 12 rebounds. "I know he's a shooter. He was going to make it or get fouled - one or the other.
Central's run of four straight regional titles puts this year's team in rare company.
Champaign Central coach Jeff Finke joins Les Moyer (seven straight titles from 1924-30) and Harry Combes (eight in a row from 1939-47) as the only coaches in program history to win four straight regional or district championships.
