Even when Eberhard went five for seven from the field and six for six from the free-throw line in the second quarter, Laguna Hills refrained from sending an extra defender Eberhard’s way.
“I was kind of surprised,” said Eberhard, who made nine of 18 shots and 13 of 14 free throws. “But when you got the CIF Player of the Year down low, you got to take something away. You can’t be giving up layups to Stefan.”
The Hawks didn’t, much of the credit going to 6-7 center Colin Pfingst for slowing down Kaluz. Pfingst blocked four shots and scored 11 points, but the Hawks had no answers for Eberhard.
