Central Valley High School's varsity boys basketball team had a busy week.

The Hawks captured the Liberty Stoneberger Tournament consolation title with a 59-48 win over Johansen on Saturday in Brentwood.

"It was our fifth game in six days," Central Valley head coach Darryl Dickson said. "The kids were tired."

All-tournament selection Jaron Dickson scored a team-high 16 points against Johansen.

Daevon Brown added 14 points.

Parker Griffin tallied 12 points.

Nathan Perine, Devon Bolivar, Nimrat Chahal and Manuel Garcia collected six, four, three and two points, respectively.

Central Valley dropped its tournament opener, 75-65, to Foothill of Pleasanton on Thursday.

The Hawks cut a 29-point deficit to seven in the fourth quarter before losing to the Falcons.

"We didn't shoot the ball well for most of the game," coach Dickson said. "Everything was falling in the fourth quarter. We ran out of gas at the end. Even though we lost, there was some good out of it."

Central Valley placed fifth overall with a 2-1 record at the Stoneberger Tournament.

Central Valley beat host Atwater 67-54 in non-league play on Dec. 9.
