FAST BREAKDOWN: The biggest news of the week was St. Joseph Notre Dame’s 55-54 squeaker over Carondelet, though after leading the whole game at Miramonte’s Tip Off Classic, the Pilots nearly let it slip away. Another notable outcome was West Campus taking down McClatchy, 61-49, at McClatchy. And don’t just assume that St. Mary’s-Stockton and Archbishop Mitty are alone at the top — Pinewood-Los Altos Hills won the prestigious Sweet 16 Invitational at La Jolla Country Day, beating the host in the finals after top teams from Colorado and Southern California had been pushed aside along the way.
