Isaiah Pineiro recorded another double-double, Peter Kean scored 16 points and the Placer boys finished off their preseason slate with a 58-38 at Marysville Thursday night.

“We did a great job on the boards and increased our lead in every quarter,” coach Mark Lee said.

Pineiro put up 21 points and brought down 12 rebounds for Placer, which heads into Pioneer Valley League play with a 13-4 record.

Grant McElvain chipped in with eight points and 10 boards and Dylan DiRuscio added six points and five rebounds for the Hillmen, who suffered two of their loses by a combined three points.

Placer, which needs two more wins to qualify for the playoffs, hosts Center next Thursday at 7 p.m. in a league opener.
