When the Southwest High boys basketball team was shooting during warm-ups against Palo Verde in El Centro on Feb. 5, Bradley Goff had a good feeling about how he'd perform.
The 17-year-old junior had only played in two other games this season. But on that one magical night it didn't matter how many games Goff had missed, because everything that could go right did go right as Goff set a CIF San Diego Section record by hitting 15 three-pointers and scoring 45 points to lead Southwest to an 83-63 league victory.
"During warm-ups I felt pretty good out there. But it wasn't until halftime that I realized how well I was doing," said Goff, who missed games due to disciplinary actions. "A friend of mine on the team told me that I had like seven threes and to keep shooting. The rest of the team was behind me to keep shooting, so I did.
