VENTURA — Marques Pena of Royal High finally got some shots to fall in overtime of the Ventura County boys' all-star basketball game at Ventura High on Friday night and as a result, the South defeated the North, 107-106.
Pena was slashing through the North defense all game, but had a hard time getting anything to drop until overtime, when he scored seven of his 18 points.
The South, which trailed, 65-53, at halftime, did not trail in overtime as Pena made all three of his shots from the field.
His first basket was a layup from the left side and his second came from the right. Then he pulled up for an eight-foot jump shot in the lane to give the South a 104-100 lead with 1 minute 24 seconds left in overtime.
