The Laguna Beach HIgh School boys basketball team survived the 258-mile drive to Atascadero to beat the 10th ranked Greyhounds 52-32 Friday, Feb. 19.

Breakers never trailed, leading 19-6 after the first period, 28-14 at the half and 45-25 after three quarters.

The trek was not the longest ever for a Bret Fleming team. In 1991, Fleming’s team won in similar fashion after a 300-mile drive to Bishop, beating the Broncos 79-55. Bishop no longer is in the Southern Section and now competes in the Central Section.

Seventh-ranked Breakers host second-ranked Harvard-Westlake on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 7 p.m. at Dugger Gym.
