The Warriors moved their overall record back to .500 with a league win last week, sweeping the season series over Highland with a 59-47 victory.
Isaiah Johnson led the Warriors with 15 points, followed by Caeleb Roney with 10 points and Dakota Medovitch with nine points.
Tehachapi (12-12; 4-3 SEYL) also had strong games from Micah Fjeld with eight points, Jonny Saavedra with seven points and Ryan Flick with six points, while Dalton Scaggs and Nathan Hedberg combined for four points.
Mountain Basketball was scheduled to have an away game against North last Friday but the game was postponed to this Tuesday due to school closure for snow.
The Warriors will have three games in a row this week with a road game at North on Tuesday, a home game against Foothill on Wednesday and the league finale on Thursday at Garces. All games will start at 6:30 p.m.
The CIF Division III playoffs will begin next week.
Nick Madden had 14 points and Thomas Blewett had eight points to help lead Tehachapi (9-9; 5-2 SEYL) to a 50-25 blowout victory over Highland last week.
Mikey Phillips also had seven points and four assists and Phil Baquerizo had five points and six rebounds to help fuel the win.
Other leaders included Ryan Kelly and Trey Abarquez each with five points and Ryan Hanzel with four rebounds.
Apparently the superbowl wasn’t the only game last week that resulted in a short game suspension. With the freshman basketball game tied 29-29 in the fourth quarter last Wednesday, a blackout of lights brought the game to a brief halt.
Despite the gym malfunction, the Indians maintained their focus when the lights came back on for an eventual 34-29 victory over Highland.
The win for Tehachapi (7-6; 5-2 SEYL) marked their third straight win, having defeated East 39-31 and Garces 25-22 earlier this month to help put themselves in the thick of the league title race.
The Indians outscored Highland 11-0 in the fourth quarter, with Jacob Burt leading the team with 13 points, followed by Daniel Wight with seven points and Bryan Cotta with six points.
Gilbert Gutierrez, Daniel Salzman and Jake Walters also contributed with a combined eight points.
