Big first half sparks Bishop to win over Malibu

Elias Munoz led a first-half surge that carried Bishop Diego to a 70-52 boys basketball win at Malibu on Wednesday night.

Munoz scored all of his 16 points in the first half, as Bishop roared to a 44-24 lead in the Frontier League game.

“He missed only one or two shots; he was on fire,” Bishop coach Dean Prophet said of Munoz.

“We had a good first half. We put up some points in the first half. It was weird because it was against a zone, and we usually don’t shoot well against a zone. They handled it and shot well,” Prophet said.

Johnny Diaz came off the bench to score 14 points and Noah Tack added 12, making 10 of 12 from the free-throw line.

The Cardinals improved to 11-5 and 2-0 in the Frontier League.
