Ingram shines, SD teams advance on Day 1 of Section 7

If this is the final curtain call of the Border Boyz as we know it, then Ty Ingram is making it a memorable one.

The 6-2 2026 guard was supposed to be the centerpiece of San Ysidro's reboot in the post-Mikey Williams era, but head coach Terry Tucker's recent announcement that he will resign July 1 changed those plans.

With that as the backdrop, Ingram has shone brightly to propel Terry Tucker's squad in the semifinals of the City of Glendale Bracket at the Section 7 Team Camp, the signature high school evaluation period event on the West Coast.

Ingram opened play with a brilliant 31-point effort against Crespi, where he outdueled another talented 2026 prospect in Crespi's Joe Sterling, who scored 26 of his own.

Then, in the nightcap, Ingram scored 18 points - including three consecutive threes in the fourth quarter - to help the Cougars upend an Arizona Cactus team that has one of the best center prospects out west in 2024 Brady Henige.

The Cougars got 25 points in that win from 2023 guard Gerardo Guerrero, who had a number of prep schools and junior colleges watching him this weekend.

The Cougars were one of five San Diego teams to win at least a game on Friday at Section 7, including St. Augustine, which defeated Pinole Valley; Torrey Pines, which beat Casteel (AZ); Montgomery, which outlasted Timpview (UT), Carlsbad, which handled Fremont (UT) and Santa Fe Christian, which defeated Centennial (AZ) after an earlier OT loss to Orem (UT) in the first round.

Lincoln played Santa Margarita tough in a 49-43 loss to open bracket play.

Here were some of the other standouts (from games that I watched):

Brycen Mackenzie, Santa Fe Christian - the 2024 G scored 25 points in both of the Eagles games on the day, and did it in front of a bevy of D1 and D2 programs, including UC San Diego, Idaho State and Point Loma Nazarene, which have all offered.

Ian De La Rosa, St Augustine - The 6-3 senior wing scored 24 points to open up Section 7 with an impressive win over a talented Pinole Valley squad.

Jaden Bailes, St. Augustine - The 6-1 sophomore scored 23 points in the win over Pinole Valley, including a big three down the stretch to hold the lead after Pinole cut the lead to 2 in the final minutes.

JJ Sanchez, Montogmery - The 6-5 forward scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the come-from-behind win over Timpview.

Dax Hall, Santa Fe Christian - The 5-10 younger brother of Carlsbad's Jake Hall scored 21 points in the game versus Orem, rapidly developing as a prospect to watch.

Josiah McDowell, Lincoln - The 6-1 sophomore put together a strong effort on both ends in the game against Santa Margarita, netting 10 points and establishing himself as a key rotation player for the Cougars.
