Kristopher Randall hit an open 3-pointer with 39 seconds remaining and the Inglewood High boys basketball team ended the game on a 9-0 run to earn a 65-55 win over Newark Memorial at the Drew Gooden Invitational Showcase on Saturday at El Cerrito High.

"You can't make mistakes when you are trying to dig out of a hole," Newark Memorial coach Craig Ashmore said.

Inglewood (5-2) and Newark Memorial (3-2) had answered each others' runs for most of the game at El Cerrito. Inglewood held a 56-51 lead with 3:46 remaining, but four straight points by Newark's Jo Jo Zamora on a layup and two free throws narrowed Inglewood's lead to one with 1:42 to go.

Newark, though, wouldn't score again. A converted offensive rebound by Charles Lockwood, then Randall's 3-pointer, started the final run for Inglewood.

Zamora scored 11 of his game-high 21 points in the fourth quarter. Teammate Damien Banford added 14 points, including nine in the first quarter to help the Cougars take a 14-11 lead.
