Darius Brown II contributed 11 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds.

Omari Moore finished with 6 points and 4 rebounds.

Darius Mason may have scored just 3 points, but the junior had 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocked shots.

Laz Morris didn’t take an official shot, but he finished with 5 points thanks to a 5-of-6 effort from the free-throw line.

PHS shot 49 percent (25 of 51) from the field, 5-of-17 from 3-point land, and they made 14-of-17 from the free-throw line.

Pasadena will host Taft (27-9) on Saturday at 7 at Marshall High School.
