Stimson scored 26 points in the game, making eight straight free throws in the final quarter-and-a-half to seal the victory.
MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: They probably won’t build a statue of him just yet, but JT Royston made a little history for Providence Hall’s young athletic program on Monday. The basketball star became the Lions’ first-ever Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athlete of the Week after putting up big numbers in a 3-0 week for Providence Hall. The first was a triple-double in a blowout win, followed by a 26-point performance in a one-point decision and 24 more points in the week’s third showdown.
