Seniors Kevin Nunez (20 points) and Alexander Delarosa (19 points) powered the seventh-ranked New Mission boys’ basketball team to a 68-62 home win over No. 12 O’Bryant Tuesday night.

“This time of the year somebody always steps up for us,” said New Mission coach Cory McCarthy.

Nunez, in his second game since returning from an ankle injury that sidelined him for about a month, played bigger than his 6-foot-1-inch frame.

He had the task of guarding Rivaldo Soares, the Tigers’ 6-5 star sophomore, and went toe-to-toe with him at the rim.

Soares finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds, but Nunez challenged him and forced him to miss close-range chances.

New Mission (12-6) came out for the second half trailing, 38-37, but immediately found its rhythm.

Senior Charles Mitchell (14 points) began to hit from outside on a night when twin brother Charlie, the Titans’ usual star offensive performer, struggled.

The Titans outscored O’Bryant, 25-10, in the third quarter to take a 62-48 lead.

The Titans carelessly turned over the ball 11 times in the first two quarters, but only once in the third quarter, allowing them to take control.

“Traditionally, we get that one run, and hang on for dear life,” said McCarthy.

In the fourth quarter, O’Bryant (14-4) found its intensity on the defensive end and disrupted New Mission with halfcourt traps and pressured the Titans into rushed shots.

A 12-0 run got the Tigers within 5, but Delarosa hit a short contested jumper to push the lead back to three possessions, and O’Bryant was unable to close the gap in the last three minutes.
