Week four of Foothill League boy’s basketball started in the most dramatic of ways last night. In a game heard live on KHTS, Hart erased a 10-point halftime deficit, only to lose to Valencia 62-60 on Terrez Scott’s jumper with five seconds remaining. Not to be outdone, Mario Wright lived up to his nickname, “Super Mario,” for the Saugus Centurions. Wright banked in a 3-point heave from the half-court line at the buzzer to defeat a West Ranch team that lead for most of the game, 54-51. Canyon kept Golden Valley winless in league play with a 72-66 victory. In girl’s action, Hart split the season series with Valencia, winning 51-35.
