California's varsity and JV boys basketball teams hosted Osage for Senior Night Thursday, where the varsity Pintos captured a 56-41 win.

"This was a great conference win," California Coach Jeff Taggart said. "We were able to stay poised and turned up the defensive intensity in the second half. We are 4-0 in the conference right now and this sets the stage for the conference championship with Blair Oaks. Should be a great game."
