SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Ryan Anderson poured in a season-high 32 points and Rainier Beach overcame a huge disadvantage at the free-throw line to beat Calabasas, Calif., 62-57 last night in the Mission Prep Christmas Classic boys basketball tournament.


Anderson, a 6-foot-4 junior guard, hit a three-pointer with two minutes remaining to blunt a Calabasas comeback bid.


“Offensive execution down the stretch is what really made the difference for us,” said coach Mike Bethea of Beach (6-2). “There were some tired legs, but we executed well.”


Terrence Williams had 12 rebounds, 14 assists and four blocked shots for the Vikings, who attempted only 18 free throws. Calabasas (6-1) attempted 42.


Tonight, Rainier Beach plays Carson, Calif., at 7:30.
