OAKLAND — The Oakland boys basketball team got in a hole in the first half it couldn't dig out of.

Fifth-ranked Jefferson outscored the Oakers in every quarter and left the Nut House with a 62-41 rout in a Central Valley Conference game on Tuesday.

Junior guard Diego Aguilar led the Lions (11-2, 3-0 CVC) with 22 points, hitting four 3-pointers. Jefferson got 14 points from Jace Aguilar and 12 from Cody Jurgens.

"We played good enough defense, but didn't show patience on offense," Oakland coach Jeff Clark said. "We got plenty of good shots, but obviously didn't shoot well."

The Oakers (9-4, 1-2) finished 25% from the field and 50% from the free-throw line. Baker Brooksby had 11 points and seven rebounds, while Douglas Branton contributed six points and freshman Joseph Fusco added five points and six boards.

Oakland travels to Stayton Thursday to face No. 10 Regis.
