On the strength of yet another nail-biting victory, the Garden Grove High boys’ basketball team won the Golden West League title Tuesday night.

The Argonauts edged Westminster 41-39 to improve to 9-0 in league (17-7 overall).

That  puts Grove 2.5 games ahead of second place Ocean View (6-2) with one game left to play.

In the Garden Grove League, Santiago clinched no worse than a tie for the title by defeating Rancho Alamitos 78-37. The Cavaliers are 8-1 in GGL play, one game ahead of Bolsa Grande (7-2). The Matadors kept pace in second with a 42-38 win over Loara.

Santiago and Bolsa will face off on Thursday in the final game of the regular season.

Edison’s 62-57 win over Newport Harbor kept the Chargers (5-0) one game ahead in the Wave League race over Los Alamitos (4-1), which defeated Laguna Beach 63-41.

The Griffins can get a share of the title if they can knock off the Bolts when they meet Thursday in the Edison gym.

After Marina and Fountain Valley each won, those teams are tied with 4-1 marks and will finish as co-champs is they each win their games on Thursday.
