They came, they saw and they conquered, as Orland High's varsity boys basketball team went 3-0 to bring home the crown from the Herb Jergentz Tournament held over the weekend at Durham High.

Eneas Rosales had seven points for Orland, with Ram's eight boards and seven by Sailsbery pacing the Trojans' rebounding effort.
