Wayne Cheung single-handedly outscored Central Valley in East Union High’s 58-30 homecoming victory Friday in sophomore boys basketball action.

Cheung went off for 20 of his game-high 31 points in the third quarter, when the Valley Oak League-leading Squires (11-2, 16-4 overall) mounted a 29-9 flurry that put the game out of reach. Cheung did not play the entire fourth quarter, making his hot-shooting night that much more impressive.

Brandon Cline chipped in with eight points for East Union, which can clinch a share of the title with a win over Lathrop next Wednesday.
