The Weston Ranch High Cougars easily handled Chavez Tuesday in the opening round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I action, winning 79-56.
"We haven't played in five or six days, so everything we did tonight was designed for Folsom," said Weston Ranch coach Chris Teevan.
That's the team his Cougars will play today. They'll hit the road to face the No. 3-seeded Bulldogs, who previously defeated Weston Ranch 77-54 in non-league play.
The No. 14 Cougars (18-11) have been playing much better as the season worn on. One of the reasons for that is Jordahn Johnson.
The transfer from San Leandro had 17 points including a pair of fourth-quarter dunks to lead the Cougars.
"I struggled at first," said Johnson, who was trying to find how his skill set best fit this team. "It finally came around once we started league — now we're jelling together."
He and Donjaé Lindsay gave Weston Ranch the early scoring lift against No. 19 Chavez (9-21).
The visiting Titans were outmatched, trailing 20-9 and 45-22 at the intermission.
Lindsay scored eight of his 14 points in the second quarter.
The third quarter was highlighted by the play of Mi'Son Coilton and Gavin Wilburn, who split past a pair of defenders for a basket before going airborne moments later.
Coilton, from nearly 30 feet away, delivered an alley-oop pass to Wilburn for the two-handed flush.
Wilburn then cut through the lane, taking a pass from Kodey Weary for another slam dunk.
He and Coilton, who hit a pair of 3s in the quarter, finished with 12 points each.
The Cougars opened the fourth with a 59-33 lead.
Teevan pulled most of his starters in the final period, saving them for the task at hand at Folsom.
"They beat us earlier in the year so we've looking forward (to the rematch)," Johnson said.
Chavez, meanwhile, was led by 6-foot-5 senior Emarrious Vickers, who finished with a game-high 32.
Senior guard Terrell Forks added 18.
Kimball 62, Lathrop 59
