Recap: Boys' Details From
Friday 1/7/00 Games--(Jan. 8, 2000)

There were more than a few games played last night, and we've got the details from just about every game played in SoCal (well, at least we've got the Southern Section and the City; San Diego is a bit tougher, and we'll also try to fill in on the Central Section).  Here's what happened:

City Section League Games

Westchester 57, Palisades 53--The host Comets (11-5, 2-0) erased a 44-38 third quarter deficit by outscoring Palisades 19-9 in the fourth quarter.  Brandon Heath paced Westchester with 15 points and Terrence Lawson had 10.

City Section Non-League

North Hollywood 50, Chatsworth 48--With three seconds remaining on the clock, Dominic Johnson of North Hollywood High dished the ball to Gus Ruiz who hit a baseline juper to win the game and avoid overtime, 50-48 over Chatsworth in a nonleague game at North Hollywood.  North Hollywood (12-3), which suffered an embarrassing loss to Taft a week ago, overcame a dismal start to beat the streaky Chancellors. The Huskies made only two of 13 shots in the first quarter and fell behind, 13-5.  Chatsworth (6-8), which outrebounded North Hollywood, 21-11, in the first half, got sloppy in the second quarter and suffered seven turnovers, four for traveling.   North Hollywood scratched its way to within 19-15 at halftime, then came out of the locker room with hot hands. The Huskies made their first four shots of the third quarter and took a 25-19 lead.  The Huskies maintained the lead until a three-point play by Cration, who had 15 points, gave the Chancellors a 41-38 lead with 5:01 left.  The final minutes featured three ties in the last 2:26.  Chatsworth trailed, 46-44, with 2:03 left before converting four of six free throws to take a 48-46 lead.  Two free throws by Kenny Hauser of North Hollywood tied it, 48-48, with 50 seconds left.   Ronald Ruffin had nine points.Hauser scored 11 points, well below his average of 20. He made two of nine shots in the second half.

Baseline League

Claremont 70, Upland 66-- The victory elated the Wolfpack (13-3) and demoralized the Highlanders (11-4), who had figured to duel with Glendora for this year's Baseline title, not Claremont. Upland had a chance to win late in the game but couldn't capitalize on the opportunity. Trailing 66-60, Jason Harris hit a baseline jumper and converted the foul to cut the lead to three with 1:05 remaining. Two failed possessions passed before Upland's Kyle Bechler misfired a 3-pointer from the top of the key, and Taylor's subsequent rebound and court-length pass found Shaddea Aaron for the basket and foul to all but end the Highlanders' hopes with 22 seconds left. Kirk Snyder scored 16 to lead the Highlanders. Three Claremont players reached double digits in rebounds - Tim Taylor (13 boards, 14 points), Davar Wilburn (10 boards, four points) and Micah Lombard (11 boards, 10 points). Through the first three quarters, this was anyone's game. It featured 10 lead changes and nine ties before the Wolfpack began to move away in the fourth quarter with a 12-4 run, taking a 66-59 lead with less than 3 minutes left, before Upland bounced back.

Glendora 85, Don Lugo 45--Graham Miller and Bruce Hatch had 14 points each for the Tartans (13-2, 1-0), who play Verbum Dei in a nonleague game today at 10 a.m. at Compton College.

Verbum Dei 72, St. Monica 64

Century League

Villa Park 73, Foothill 39 --If Friday night's Century League opener is any indication, the Villa Park boys basketball team will have an easy time defending its league title.  The host Spartans, defeated Foothill, 73-39, sending a message to the rest of the league that they are definitely the team to beat.   Foothill (7-10) is one of three teams hoping to challenge the Spartans for the title. But the Knights weren't much of a match for Villa Park on Friday.  Junior guard Matt MacGinnis led Villa Park (14-2 overall) in scoring with 22 points. MacGinnis made six of his first seven field-goal attempts. He wound up making seven of 11 shots in the game, including five three-pointers, and scored 20 of his 22 points in the first half to help Villa Park move out to a 36-23 halftime lead. The Spartans led 57-28 entering the fourth quarter.  Foothill was led by junior guard Chad Bigler, who scored 17 points.  

El Modena 54, Orange 45--El Modena pulled away in the fourth quarter on free throws. Blake Dodge scored 18 points, making 11 of 15 free throws.

Canyon 70, Santa Ana Valley 60

Channel League

Ventura 60, San Marcos 57--Mike Derse had 18 points and six rebounds for Ventura in a Channel League opener at San Marcos.  Tyler Ebell scored 14 points, including two three-point baskets, for Ventura (12-5) . San Marcos High lived and died with the 3-point shot Friday night in its Channel League basketball opener at the Thunderhut against Ventura. The Royals sank 12-of-22 shots from long range, but missed three in the final seconds and lost 60-57.  Ventura, 12-5, has several returning players and a number of players who have been stars in other sports. San Marcos, 6-8, has only one returning starter, Adam Nance. He returned from an ankle sprain to score 18 points and grab 11 rebounds. Ryan King added 16 points while Richard Pertsulakes added 17 points and four assists. Ventura was led by Mike Derse, the Channel League co-MVP in water polo, with 18 points and Tyler Ebell, a 1,000-yard rusher in football, with 14. VENTURA -- Ebell 14, Richards 12, Ellis 3, Prophet 2, Roberts 2, Derse 18, Gruber 9. Totals 26-60 4-6 60. SAN MARCOS -- Kupperman 3, Balingdong 3, King 16, Pertsulakes 17, Nance 18.

Santa Barbara 66, Dos Pueblos 38-- In Friday's league opener, the Dons totally dominated Dos Pueblos for a 66-38 win before an overflow crowd at Santa Barbara High. Santa Barbara, 13-2 overall, started the game pretty much as it did Wednesday in a lopsided win over Santa Paula, combining good shooting and good defense to jump to an early and decisive lead. The Dons hit 4-of-7 3-pointers in the first quarter and 7-of-12 shots overall, building leads of 13-3 and 21-5 in the first quarter before settling for a 35-19 halftime lead. Dommanic Ingerson scored 16 of his game-high 19 points in the first half but the Dons also showed their depth in the second half when they put the game away 51-26 with a 12-0 third quarter run while Ingerson was on the bench. Santa Barbara also outrebounded Dos Pueblos decisively, led by a 12-board effort from Trey Putnam, and committed only nine turnovers despite an aggressive pressure defense applied by the Chargers. They even hit 14 of 15 free throws. The end result was Santa Barbara averaged 1.4 points per possession. Putnam had 10 points to go with his rebounds while Williams had 13 points and six rebounds. Henderson had eight points and three assists.   Dos Pueblos was led by A.J. Ortiz with 10 points and Brett Holbrook with eight points. Holbrook showed some flashy moves sliding underneath the basket but had a number of shots go in-and-out. The best play of the night, however, was probably a driving first half basket by Ingerson where he blew by one defender, dipped the ball underneath another's arm and then softly banked in the shot from about six feet away.  Ingerson added four assists and four steals to his scoring total, which was only slightly below his 19.5 season average. Dos Pueblos, winner of the last three Channel League titles, takes on Ventura at home Wednesday while Santa Barbara plays Channel Islands in a non-league game. DOS PUEBLOS -- Ortiz 10, Graybill 2, Fortune 6, Roegner 4, Sherman 3, Folan 1, Holbrook 8, Jenkins 4. Totals 14 7-16 38. SANTA BARBARA -- Henderson 8, Whilt 7, Walling 4, C.

El Dorado 58, Katella 50--El Dorado (14-2) played like it is going to be wearing Empire League championship patches on their lettermen jackets as they beat Katella at home 58-50 Friday night at Katella High in an Empire League opener.

Traded free throws by Canyon’s Jake Cox and Saugus’ Chad Krogh kept the Centurions up, 58-57, before the Cowboys got a key rebound, basket, then steal by forward Thomas Kemp to spark a six-point run to seal it.  Canyon improved to 9-7 overall, while Saugus dropped to 11-6.

Golden League

Littlerock 67, Quartz Hill 64--Gene Myvett of Littlerock High stepped to the free throw line.  The Lobos held a one-point lead with 20 seconds left, but he missed both free throws.  With eight seconds left, he had another chance. Same score, same situation.  This time he made both.  The Littlerock senior finished with 31 points, none of them more important than the final two, which capped a 67-64 victory over Quartz Hill in a Golden League opener Friday night at Littlerock.  Quartz Hill, forced to shoot a three-pointer in order to tie, had one final chance, but Anthony Johnson missed with four seconds left.   Other than the missed free throws, Myvett looked good in almost every way.  Myvett scored 18 points in the first half, including a reverse dunk after a Quartz Hill turnover to give the Lobos (12-5) a 35-27 lead at halftime.  Myvett did not score in the third quarter, missing both of his shots, but answered with 13 points in the fourth quarter.   Quartz Hill (10-6), defending league champion, trailed 50-42 on a three-pointer by Myvett a minute into the fourth quarter.  But the Rebels closed to within 55-54 on a short jumper by Jared Corpening with four minutes left.   Littlerock, however, had the look of a champion at the finish, with Myvett scoring six points in transition during a 45-second span that started with 3:20 left.  Johnson scored 16 points and Corpening added 15 for Quartz Hill, which endured its second consecutive game of poor shooting.  Against Littlerock, the Rebels made 28 of 75 shots (37.3%).  Brandon White scored 12 points and sophomore Frank Robinson added 11 for Littlerock, which made 27 of 61 shots (44.3%).  They each finished with 12 rebounds for Littlerock, though Dale cited that the Lobos need to improve their defensive rebounding when the teams meet again Jan. 28 at Quartz Hill.

Los Padres League

St. Joseph 53, Santa Ynez 47--Casey Miranda scored a game-high 20 points, Dustin Kelly added 14 and Jeff Gross hit the go-ahead bucket as the host Knights won the Los Padres League opener. Matt McKinney had 17 points and scored all 10 of Santa Ynez's points in the fourth quarter. Mike Wooten added 11 points for the Pirates. SANTA YNEZ -- Jones 3, Wooten 11, McKinney 17, Dreher 8, Alegria 8. Totals: 19 9-15 47. ST. JOSEPH -- Kelly 14, Miranda 20, Smith 9, Pierce 3, Gross 7. Totals: 17 14-22 53. Santa Ynez . . . 16 10 11 10 -- 47 St. Joseph . . . 14 12 10 17-- 53.  St. Joseph is 3-12 overall, the Pirates are 5-11 overall.

Cabrillo 53, Morro Bay 52--Cabrillo's David Drake sank one-of-two at the line with three seconds left to bring things to their final pass, leaving the Conquistadores and their faithful to breathe a big sigh of relief. After taking a 22-15 lead out of the first quarter that was higlighted by two right-side-and-rollin' slams from Franklin Coleman, the Conqs found the hoop about as often as old Mother Hubbard when she went to the cupboard to get her poor dog a three-pointer.  Luckily, Morro Bay was equally off-the-mark. CHS held a 32-25 lead at the half. But when Pirate power forward Rod Weston got on his pogo stick for six points late in the third, the Mobrobuvrians (cousins of the Brobdignagians) cut the deficit to 43-41.  Then Morro Bay's Kevin Dearden made the first hoop in the fourth and it was tied. Cabrillo bubbled back out to a four-point lead and held that margin for most of the fourth.  But Morro Bay picked up a couple of buckets in the last minue, one off the offense, the other to tie at 52-52 off a steal and layup from Nick Humphrey.   Cabrillo came the other way quickly, Drake driving the right side and getting fouled hard for his trouble. He missed the first freebie, sank the second and the crowd got loud as a length-of-the-court Pirate pass went awry.  For the game, Omar Robinson had 19, Marcus Jenkins 12 to lead Cabrillo. Dearden had 18, Bryan Wunsch 13 for Morro Bay. The Conqs improved to 10-5 as the Pirates fell to 6-8. Cabrillo hosts Paso Robles Wednesday. Varsity tipoff is 7:30.

Garey 71, Pomona 63--That's when Brandon Hogan hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the third quarter as host Garey rallied for a 71-63 victory over archrival Pomona in the Miramonte League opener for both schools Friday.  Garey (11-6 overall, 1-0 league) trailed 38-33 in the third quarter when Hogan (11 points) hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Vikings the lead for good 39-38. But Pomona (4-10, 0-1) didn't give in so easily. The Red Devils fell behind by 53-43 in the third quarter (a 20-5 run), but closed to within three (58-55) on Odell Howard's 3-pointer with six minutes to play in the game.

Northern League

San Luis Obispo 59, Righetti 56 --San Luis Obispo (6-7, 1-1) scored the first 15 points of the game Friday night. Then Righetti (10-6, 0-2) put together a 23-5 run to gain the upper hand. Finally, Jamie Ritchie and Skylar Feltman buried three-pointers in the final two minutes as Sant Luis Obispo scored 16 of the final 18 points for a 59-56 victory over the Warriors at SLO. The win snapped a three-game San Luis Obispo losing streak. San Luis Obispo led 15-0 with 4:40 to go in the first quarter. But Righetti never panicked and fought its way back into the game behind the outside shooting of its guards and the inside play of Robert Osario. The game was tied 25-25 at halftime and the Warriors continued their rally in the second half, building an 11-point lead at 54-43 with five minutes to play. But Righetti would score just two points in the final 4 minutes, 40 seconds — a basket by Ben Easton. Ritchie’s three-pointer with 2:06 to go trimmed Righetti’s lead to two points and Feltman’s trey from the left baseline with 55 seconds to play put San Luis Obispo on top. Righetti turned the ball over twice and missed two shots in the final minute of play. Schuyler Linneman made seven of 12 floor shots, all from inside, and finished with 19 points to lead all scorers in the game. Feltman finished with 15 points. Righetti was led by Steven Montepeque with 13 points, Sylvester Swain with 12 and Osario with 11. San Luis Obispo built a hefty 46-30 advantage on the boards, led by Grant Linscott’s 10 boards, but made just 14 of 29 free throws for 48 percent. Neither team shot well from the floor — San Luis Obispo 34 percent and Righetti 42 percent. The SLO Tigers are at Arroyo Grande on Wednesday. The Eagles (13-2, 1-0) had a bye Friday, but played a non-league game against Santa Barbara on Saturday night. .

Lompoc 60, Santa Maria 42 --At Paisola Pavilion, Lompoc improved to 2-0 in the Northern League and 11-5 overall as Santa Maria fell to 0-1, 5-9.  Lyndon Conaway had 18, including 12 on four treys, Vernon Ramey 12 including two on a thunder dunk that punctuated a 19-7 fourth quarter, and Quadree Salim also scored 12 for the Braves.  Up 11-4 out the first, the Blue and White fell behind 23-22 at the half and trailed by as much as seven in the third quarter before righting the ship. Rodney Johnson had 14 to pace the Saints.  Lompoc is at Arroyo Grande Friday, varsity tipoff at 7:30. Lompoc  is now 11-5, 2-0, while Santa Maria is 5-9, 0-1.

West Torrance 46, Culver City 45-- David Harris tallied 11 points and 14 rebounds as the Warriors (9-5, 2-0) battled back from a 27-17 halftime deficit to win at home.  Brandon Devry scored all nine of his points on 3's and Logan Steinhauer contributed 8 points for West.

Olympic League

Orange Lutheran 74, Brethren Christian 45-- Forward Patrick Salyer scored 17 points and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds, and forward Mike Bristol scored 17 points as Orange Lutheran romped over Brethren Christian, 74-45, Friday night in an Olympic League opener at Orange Lutheran.  Jason Whieldon finished with 13 points, far below his 27.9 average. But he made up for his lack of scoring with crisp passing and feisty defense as Orange Lutheran (13-3, 1-0) seized a 21-10 lead after the first quarter and never lost control.  Brethren Christian (9-8, 0-1) reduced a deficit that had ballooned to 18 points in the third quarter to 11 on a three-pointer by forward Kyle Painter to open the fourth quarter. The Crusaders would come no closer as the Lancers outscored them, 24-6, the rest of the way.  Guard Lee Mamaradlo (team-high 14 points) and his Brethren Christian teammates never seemed to find much of a rhythm. The undersized Crusaders failed to hit their outside shots and were stifled inside by Salyer.   Then, in the fourth quarter, Bristol found his touch, scoring 10 of Orange Lutheran's 12 points during one stretch.   The game was largely decided on the boards; the Lancers outrebounded the Crusaders, 47-19. 

Calvary Chapel Santa Ana 72, Whittier Christian 52--Tony Olivas scored 22 points to lead the visiting Eagles (11-6, 1-0), who held the Heralds (5-12, 0-1) to three points in the first quarter.

Pacific Coast League

Laguna Beach 61, Corona del Mar 52--Travis Hanour scored 27 points and Chris Manker had 19 points and 15 rebounds for visiting Laguna Beach (10-6, 1-0). The first quarter saw the lead go back and forth as Alec Hanson of Corona del Mar (12-5, 0-1) hit a three-pointer with 3 seconds left in the first quarter to give the Sea Kings a 17-15 lead. Hanson hit another three-pointer and a jumper to give the Sea Kings their biggest lead at 22-17. With 5 minutes left in the first half, Hanson had half the Sea Kings points but wouldn't score again. In the next four minutes the Artists went on a 15-6 run to go ahead, 32-28, and they never relinquished the lead. In the third quarter, Hanour hit an array of jumpers and driving layups on his way to a game-high 27 points and added six assists. With 44 seconds left, Laguna Beach (10-6, 1-0) held a 57-52 lead and Travis Hanour was sent to the line for a 1-and-1. He missed the free throw, but Manker muscled his way in for the rebound and put the ball back for a 59-52 lead.   Manker then rebounded the Sea Kings' next miss and was fouled. Following the advice of assistant coach Clayton Olivier, Manker used a high arc to calmly sink both free throws to seal the victory with 17 seconds left in the game.  Kevin Hansen led the Sea Kings with 21 points, three steals and six rebounds. Corona del Mar's Joel Templeton contributed 10 points and eight rebounds.

Costa Mesa 58, Estancia 50-- Rick Hatsushi scored 25 points, including four three-pointers, as the Mustangs (14-4, 1-0) defeated the visiting Eagles (11-6, 0-1)

Pacific View League

Oxnard 67, Channel Islands 32--When Tramaine Murray of Oxnard High rattled in a dunk with five seconds left in a Pacific View League boys' basketball opener against Channel Islands on Friday night, it put an exclamation point on the Yellowjackets' stunning 67-32 victory.  Oxnard (13-4) won the inaugural Pacific View title with an 8-0 record last season, but six of those victories--including two against Channel Islands--were tight games.  This was supposed to be close, but Oxnard used an 18-2 run in the last 5:40 of the second quarter and a 13-0 run in the first 4:23 of the third to take a 41-13 lead.  Forward Manny Berrelleza, averaging 16.9 points, was held scoreless and center Mike Keddington, averaging 10.1, managed just six for Channel Islands.  Keddington, a 6-foot-6 senior, did have 15 rebounds, but the Raiders shot a horrific 19.1% (13 of 68 shots).  Channel Islands (9-7) made only four of 19 shots in the first quarter, yet the Raiders took an 11-10 lead early in the second quarter when Keddington scored after getting an offensive rebound.  Channel Islands made only one of 12 shots and committed four turnovers for the rest of the half.   Oxnard made six of 12 shots in that span, including three of five three-pointers.   Jason Parker started the Yellowjacket run with a three-pointer from the left side and capped it with a layup on an assist from Ricky Hernandez.  Five Yellowjackets scored in between Parker's baskets, including Hernandez, who finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds.  Hernandez, a stocky 6-1 senior forward who has been slowed by gimpy ankles, scored 11 of Oxnard's 22 points in the third quarter when the Yellowjackets stretched a 28-13 halftime lead to 50-17.  Oxnard's domination was particularly surprising because the Yellowjackets did it without a big offensive game from 6-6 junior center Nicholas Curtis.  Curtis, who had 20 points and 20 rebounds in a 74-60 victory over Buena on Wednesday, had nine points to go with his 12 rebounds.  Oxnard, which played all 15 of its players, was a modest 10 of 24 in the first half, but made nine of 13 shots in the third quarter.  Hernandez got Oxnard's 13-0 run started by scoring a basket on an offensive rebound with 7:17 left in the third quarter. Matthew Merricks capped it on a three-pointer with 4:23 remaining.  The Yellowjackets made five of six shots and two of two free throws during the run while committing only one turnover.   Merricks had seven points and nine rebounds in the game while point guard Jonathan Davis had seven points and six assists for the Yellowjackets. 

Hueneme 62, Camarillo 48--Anthony Camper registered 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead Hueneme (9-1, 1-0) to a 62-48 Pacific View League victory over Camarillo (8-9, 0-1) on Friday night at Camarillo. Eric Watkins of Hueneme scored 15 and Frank Orocio added 13.  Camarillo's Ian Caldwell scored 18 and Ryan McCormick netted 14 points.

Ayala 62, Nogales 52--Ayala game-- Despite trailing 54-33 midway through the fourth quarter, Nogales raised its game. The Nobles used a 19-5 run to cut its deficit to 59-52, with only 17 seconds left.  The chance for a miraculous comeback ended, however, when Ayala hit three consecutive free throws in the final 15 seconds. Nogales' late surge, while not enough to win, scared Ayala head coach Tom Gregory.  The Bulldogs played a tenacious man-to-man throughout much of the game. They held Nogales to only three points in the third quarter and six for the first 11 minutes of the second half. During that span, Ayala outscored Nogales, 19-6, to take a 52-32 lead in the fourth quarter.  Ayala's aggressive defense forced Nogales to rush bad shots. Ayala forced only seven turnovers in the second half, but its pressure didn't allow Nogales to run its offense effectively.  Ayala raced to a 10-2 lead and led, 16-9, at the end of the first period.  AYALA (62) Pacana 7, Sterling 10, Lucas 6, McCoy 19, Burke 11, Quinn 9.

Baldwin Park 71, Sierra Vista 55--Senior guard Steven Reese finished with a team-high 22 points and had 10 rebounds, leading the Baldwin Park High School boys basketball team to a 71-55 victory over host Sierra Vista in Valle Vista League action Friday night.  The Braves (6-7, 1-1) outscored the Dons, 42-18, in the first half and never looked backed.  Senior Phillip Phung had 10 points and five assists.  Sierra Vista's Jimmy Majeau finished with 12 points.

Bonita 42, Northview 39--Bonita improved to 2-0 in the Valle Vista League and 10-4 overall. Northview fell to 1-1 and 5-9.  Chris Dean led the Bearcats with 14 points, and Alan Erving patrolled the boards with a game-high 13 rebounds to go along with his eight points.  Northview was led by Benny Laws (14 points) and Joseph Mercado (11 points and 10 rebounds). Eric Samudio added 10 points.   Bonita's biggest lead of the game was eight points at 30-22 midway through the third quarter, but Northview's tough defense put up enough stops to keep the game close right to the end.  Northview also rebounded well, winning the battle of the boards 30-29. It was the first time this season Bonita has been out-rebounded.  The game was decided in a frantic final minute. Bonita led, 40-39, but Northview had the ball and Laws, who had already made two 3-pointers in the game, got an open look from beyond the arc with 15 seconds left.  Laws' shot, however, was a little long and Bonita's David Musa got the rebound and took off upcourt. He was cut off before he got to the basket, but his pass to Dean went through Dean's hands and set off a wild scramble for the ball.   Northview's Jason De La Torre ended up with the ball while lying on the floor. He tried calling timeout but instead was whistled for traveling with just 5.7 seconds remaining.  Bonita's Matt Ketterling was fouled immediately after the ball was inbounded, and he made one of two free throws to put the Bearcats up, 42-40.   Northview's last real hope to win the game ended when Samudio's pass to Mercado under the basket slipped through Mercado's hands and out of bounds.
