Riley, a 6-foot-2 freshman guard from Elsinore High School, scored 23 points as Palomar began the week with a 69-57 road win over Grossmont.

He came right back to score 22 points, including 16 points in the last 8:16 of regulation and in overtime, to lead the Comets past rival MiraCosta 67-62, also on the road. His performance was pivotal as Palomar wrapped up a tie for the PCAC Northern Division title with Mt. San Jacinto.

Carr, a sophomore guard from Mira Mesa High School, set a school record with nine 3-pointers en route to a 98-78 win over San Diego Mesa. He went 9-for-12 on 3-pointers and was 3-for-3 from the foul line.

Honorable mention went to San Diego Mesa swimmer Neil Franka, Southwestern basketball player Kevn Windley and Miramar volleyball player Caleb Deibel.

Franka, a freshman individual medley specialist from University City High School, broke three Mesa records in four individual events at the Mt. SAC Invitational. All Franka's times were state bests for so far in the 2015 season. He won the 200 IM in 1:56:12, the 200 backstroke (1:51.95) and the 1000 freestyle (46.52). And he was only .07 seconds off the 100 butterfly school record with a 50:36.

Windley, a 6-foot-3 sophomore guard from Cary (North Carolina) High School, helped lead the Jaguars to a 70-65 win over San Diego City College in a showdown for the PCAC Southern Division championship. He scored 19 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished off four assists. He also contributed eight rebounds and seven assists in a 73-55 victory over Mesa.

Deibel, a freshman outside hitter from Mt. Spokane High School in Spokane, WA, and a transfer from Spokane Falls Community College, led the way in Miramar's 25-20, 26-24, 20-25, 25-7 road victory over Los Angeles Trade Tech, the first win for the Jets in the program's history. He racked up 20 kills on .333 hitting efficiency and added four service aces and a block assist. Deibel is a former tennis player whose high school did not field a volleyball team.
