All game long, the Beckman High boys' basketball team more than hung around at Corona del Mar. The Patriots just didn't give themselves their best shot to stick around longer on Tuesday night. Down three points with 17.6 seconds left, Beckman opted to drive to the basket. With the clock winding down, the play near the baseline wasn't by design. Beckman Coach Brady Richards wanted to run a three-point play, to tie the game and send it into overtime. What Richards got was an ill-advised shot and Beckman missed its shot to move into a first-place tie with CdM in the Pacific Coast League.

The detailed cheating scheme that resulted in the suspension of roughly a dozen Corona del Mar High School students probably began in April 2013, court documents show. The students are accused of attaching a keylogger - a small device that can be placed in the back of a computer to monitor keystrokes - to several teachers' computers to swipe logins and passwords, allegedly with the help of a private tutor. With the recorded data, the students allegedly altered grades and accessed English, science and history exams, some at the honors and Advanced Placement levels.
