The Santa Monica High boys basketball team won the Ocean League championship three of the past six years, including last season.
But the Vikings can’t win it this time.
Samohi entered the final week of the regular season with four league losses. Inglewood and Morningside had lost just once, so one of them will finish first.
Samohi is tied with Hawthorne for third place and is likely to receive a CIF playoff berth based on an overall 17-7 record.
