“We’re a brand new unit and we looked pretty sharp,” said Griffins assistant coach JOHN CLARK. “But we were playing a team that’s probably going to wind up in the Final Four.”

Griffin sophomore KAELEN MITCHELL, out of Helix, poured in 23 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and nailed 5 of 12 from 3-point range.

MARCOS MEZA, the other returning sophomore in the Grossmont lineup, scored only 3 points but dished 8 assists.

Newcomers that stood out included DANIEL McCOWN, who hails from Palm Desert, hit 4 of 9 three-pointers and finished with 18 points.

Strong off the bench for Grossmont was LeANDRE POWELL (Chula Vista) with 10 points.

“Mitchell and Meza showed their experience,” said Clark, “and Powell did all his damage in 15 minutes. He’s a great energy guy.”

Grossmont will face Pacific Coast Athletic Conference rival San Diego Mesa in Friday’s (Nov. 6) second round at 1 p.m.
