Santa Margarita (11-4) won at home by scoring twice as many points as the Friars in the first and second quarters to build a 29-14 halftime lead. 
Sjur Berg, who made six of seven from the field, scored 15 and Devonte Klines had seven assists.

The Eagles bounced back after losing to Mater Dei on Wednesday, 71-49, a game in which they trailed 44-43 going into the fourth quarter.

Santa Margarita plays host to Orange Lutheran on Wednesday.
