The Temecula Valley Golden Bears Boys’ Basketball team clawed their way into the second round of the Southern Section CIF playoffs Thursday night against the Simi Valley Pioneers. The Golden Bears started the first quarter strong and never looked back. Sophomore forward, and team point leader of the night, Riley Schaefer, opened the first few minutes with a 3-pointer. The Pioneers looked to catch up and answered back with a 3-pointer of their own from guard, Brian Lowe. The attempt didn’t work too well with Temecula Valley dunks by point guard, Justin Simon and Riley Schaefer to close out the quarter with a lead of 24-6.

TVHS sophomore guard, Robert Phillips, opened up the second quarter with a 3-pointer. Simi Valley, once again, attempted to play catch up with a 3-pointer sunk by guard, Joe Colliatie. The Golden Bears’ Justin Simon fired back with back-to-back dunks to close out the half. Temecula Valley ended the half on top of the Simi Valley Pioneers 44-13.

Already ahead by quite a few points, TVHS’ guard, Ryan Schaefer made his own 3-pointer to give the Bears even more of a lead. His brother, Rileythrew down a second dunk. A few minutes later, Ryan made another 3-point basket, followed by guard, Anthony Colero with 18 seconds left in the third. The Golden Bears were once again on top of Simi Valley 70-29 as they headed into the fourth and final quarter.

The Golden Bears allowed just 16 points in the final quarter for a final score of 76-45. When asked about moving on and whom they are going to play, Riley Schaefer said, "It was a good team win and no matter whom we play we’re ready."

TVHS moves on to the second round of the Southern Section playoffs and travel to face guard Jacob Short (15.8 ppg) and #14 Capistrano Valley who beat Summit 70-58.
