Big players step up at big times and that's just what Santa Monica (27-6) forward Chris Smith did to the chagrin of crosstown rival Palisades High (23-10) who lost to the Vikings in overtime 76-63 after Smith tied the game 62-62 with 4.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the CIF State Playoffs at home Saturday night. Samohi Basketball Head Coach James Hecht said that the game went as predicted and was happy the Vikings won in the end. "The game went as we predicted it would be," said Hecht. "A drag out knock out 12 round bout and in the end we beat another very good team."
