Eagles win at Selland

[/media-credit] Tyus Parrish-Tillman, ’22, tips off the ball starting the Championship game at Selland, Feb. 28.

Congratulations to the Fresno Christian boys basketball team for winning the 2020  CIF Central Section Division V Valley Championship! No. 2 seed FC defeats the No. 1 seed, Fowler, 76-73, in double overtime at the Selland Arena, Feb. 28.

The last time boys basketball made it to finals, they lost to Kerman Valley in 2016. The last the Eagles won was in 2012. After seven years of coaching, head coach Jon Penberthy wins his first-ever Valley championship.

To show support, high school students were released at 11 a.m. to watch the game which started at 12 p.m. and cheer on the team. Students brought flags and wore spirit wear in an attempt to hype up the basketball team.

Key players that helped carry the team to the finals and through the season were Ty Utah Coffman, ’20, Bryson Graham, ’21, Carston Saelzler, ’21, Tyus Parrish- Tillman, ’22, and Orion Tomlinson, ’22. Leading scorers in the final match up against Fowler include Parrish-Tillman’s 23 points and 14 rebounds, Saelzler with 17 points and 18 rebounds and Tomlinson who scored 15 points. Parrish-Tillman was named player of the Valley championship game.
