GetSportsFocus.com – St. Joseph of Notre Dame came in the Sleep Train Arena with one thing in mind and that is to take over the game and never look back.  The Pilots took on Renaissance Academy from SoCal and dominated right from the start.  Temidayo Yussuf led the charge with 21 points and 16 boards.  Yussuf got the Pilots going early with an 8-2 run in the opening quarter.  Lamont Banks also contributed 14 points and grabbed 7 boards for SJND.

It was the fourth consecutive appearance in the CIF State title game for the Pilots and after a heartbreaking loss last year, Yussuf and the rest of the Pilots used that as motivation to get back to the title game and not just win it but win it big.

SJND build a very comfortable lead and kept their distance for most of the game.  The best moment of the game came in the closing seconds when Coach Lippi substituted the back ups, one of which was Elijah Fisher.  Fisher who is also a senior took it to the rack with seconds left igniting the rowdy Pilots’ sixth man for the big finish.  According to Coach Lippi, “Fisher is the most inspirational player on the team and how fitting it was for him to close out the game with a basket.  Elijah is a popular kid at school, very involve. He’s in theater and he plays baseball as well.”

St. Joe’s won their fifth State title 57-32.
