SAN MATEO -- Alex Manu and Aragon put up a spirited challenge, but Frankie Ferrari got hot down the stretch, and that was enough to help No. 5-ranked Burlingame to a 76-72 win in overtime Wednesday over No. 12 Aragon.

Ferrari scored 19 of his 32 points in the final eight minutes of the game -- 11 in overtime and eight in the last four minutes of the fourth quarter.

"I felt like I needed to get in an attack mode when the game got close,'' Ferrari said. "For my team to win I needed to make some clutch shots down the stretch.''

Manu, psyched up to be going head to head with Ferrari, scored 30 of his 32 during regulation. "Playing against a Division I player, that was exciting,'' Manu said of Ferrari, who has signed a letter of intent with USF. "We played good, but like he usually does, it was just a matter of time for his shot to start to fall.''

Aragon led 49-44 heading into the fourth quarter. The Dons led 57-53 when Ferrari caught fire, hitting back-to-back 3-pointers to give Burlingame a 59-57 lead.

A three-point play by Manu gave Aragon a 63-61 lead, but Ferrari tied it on a drive with 22 seconds left to send the game to overtime.

Ferrari scored 11 of Burlingame's 13 points in overtime, making three 3-pointers.

"That's the sign of a good player, to take over at the end,'' Burlingame coach Pete Harames said.

"He just got on fire,'' Aragon coach Sam Manu said. "I told my team, if a guy's going to shoot four 3s to beat you, hats off to him.''

Early in the game Ferrari, who had eight assists, was looking to facilitate. Justin Gutang was a beneficiary, scoring 25 points. Kevin Hahn added 20 points for Aragon (11-6, 4-1).

Burlingame (14-3, 5-0) now has a one-game lead over Aragon in the Peninsula Athletic League South Division standings.

Wilcox 64, Santa Clara 60: The Chargers came from behind, outscoring Santa Clara 19-11 in the fourth quarter to win the rivalry game in front of a crowd estimated at 1,500 at Santa Clara.

"It was a great game for the city of Santa Clara,'' Santa Clara High coach Tony McGilvery said.

Sophomore Jase Wickliffe led Wilcox (14-3, 5-0 Santa Clara Valley Athletic League El Camino Division) with 18 points. Julian Jones, also a sophomore, scored 14 and Raj Singh had 13.

Christian Lee, a 6-foot-5 post, led Santa Clara (14-3, 4-1) with 23 points and 17 rebounds. Ronaq Virdi added 16. Cole Lockwood, Santa Clara's leading scorer on the season and one of the top scorers in the Central Coast Section, fouled out with a minute left in the third quarter with seven points.
