Salesian girls fall to Miramonte

While Salesian (27-6) had stunned No. 3-seeded Archbishop Mitty with an upset last week — helped in part by Minyon Moore’s whopping 40-points — the Pride’s impressive run was stopped short against Miramonte on Tuesday.

The Pride fell 71-64 in the CIF NorCal Open Division semifinals, according to the Mercury News. USC-bound Moore had another outstanding night with 25 points.
