Recap: All The Boys' Scores From
Tuesday 1/11/00 Games--(Jan. 12, 2000)

According to the CIF Southern Section Media Guide, it looked like about half the Southern Section teams were supposed to be in play on Tuesday night, but we could only find scores for about 1/3 of the teams.  Which doesn't mean we didn't get all the scores. . . more than likely, the CIF Guide had more than a few typos or games got rescheduled.  We have most of the game details (following the scores), but if you know of a score we missed, or some details that you'd like to see included, just e-mail them in.

Southern Section League Game Details

Almont League

San Gabriel 61, Bell Gardens 58--Clutch shooting by Martin Del Toro allowed San Gabriel High School's boys basketball team to escape with a 61-58 victory in a seesaw Almont League opener against visiting Bell Gardens on Tuesday night.  Del Toro, who finished the game with 18 points, scored once from the field and four times from the free-throw line in the final minute.  After the first half ended in a 27-27 tie, San Gabriel took control. The Matadors (9-8, 1-0) went on a six-minute, 10-2 run that gave them a 42-37 lead at the end of the third quarter.   During the run, the Lancers made only 1 of 11 shots and committed two turnovers. They succeeded in rebounding, however, taking eight shots on two consecutive possessions.   Bell Gardens (4-13, 0-1) rebounded from the third quarter, balancing their inside and perimeter games.  Gabriel Herrera, who led the Lancers with 26 points, made three fourth-quarter baskets in the paint and was 2-of-2 from the line. Liera Marky made three of four fourth-quarter 3-point attempts, two in the final 30 seconds. Marky's 3-pointer with 21 seconds to play brought the Lancers to within 57-55. He fouled Del Toro immediately, but Del Toro pushed the lead to 59-55 with two free throws.  Marky hit another 3-pointer, pulling Bell Gardens to within 59-58 with 6.2 seconds left.  The Lancers again fouled Del Toro, who again sank both free throws to give the Matadors a 61-58 lead.  The Lancers' wild 3-point attempt missed at the buzzer.

Citrus Belt League

Eisenhower 71, Fontana 66--The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin had this account:  Eisenhower built a 17-point third-quarter lead and then held on against Fontana for a 71-66 victory in the Citrus Belt League boys basketball opener for both teams at Fontana High School. The win was the 17th in a row for the Eagles (17-1 overall, 1-0 league). Fontana drops to 10-7 overall and 0-1 in league. Eisenhower took advantage of 18 first-half Fontana turnovers to lead 35-19 at halftime, then led by as much as 46-29 with 4:01 to play in the third quarter. Fontana tried to climb back in, but the Steelers couldn't get any closer than eight points until the game's final minute.   The game was marred by 48 fouls between the two teams, and the plethora of fouls caused more problems for Fontana. Three Fontana starters fouled out: Wesley Washington (6:37 left in the fourth), Michael Stephenson (3:08) and Tremaine Nelson (2:43). The Eagles were whistled for 20 fouls, but they were spread among nine different players. In addition, 10 different players scored for Eisenhower, led by Andre Rouzan's 19 points, Kynan Bush's 16 and Alex Acker's 15. Fontana was led by Trayvon Williams (17 points) and Jordan Walker (16 points, all in the second half).  And the Riverside Press-Enterprise had this to say: "Kynan Bush is a newcomer to Rialto Eisenhower but he knew how important Tuesday night's game against Citrus Belt League rival Fontana was to his teammates. Bush, a transfer guard from Rowland, hit four key free throws in the final 1:03 as Eisenhower held on for a 71-66 victory at Fontana. Fontana (10-7) won the CBL last season in part because of two three-point victories over second-place Eisenhower (17-1), which finished a game behind in the standings. Eisenhower won its 17th straight game and it can credit its defense. The Eagles played aggressive man-to-man defense and forced 18 turnovers in the first half, taking a 35-19 lead at halftime. Fontana got its offense going in the second half, making 16 of 30 shots compared to 7 of 20 in the first half. Every time the Steelers made a run, Eisenhower would counter with a basket or two free throws, and Fontana never threatened to pull even. Eisenhower led, 63-49, with 3:08 left in the fourth quarter, and held on during a late Fontana run by hitting its free throws. Bush twice countered Fontana baskets by making two free throws on the following possession. After a three-pointer by Cory McJimson with 15 seconds left brought the Steelers within five at 69-64, Andre Rouzan made two free throws to ice it. Rouzan led Eisenhower with 19 points and had eight of the Eagles' 21 steals. Fontana had 28 turnovers.  Rouzan scored 10 points in the first quarter as Eisenhower took a 17-12 lead. The Eagles closed the second quarter with a 11-0 run and led by 16 points at halftime despite shooting 41.9 from the floor. EISENHOWER (71) Bush 16, A. Rouzan 19, Wilson 2, Acker 15, Sams 4, James 3, Jackson 2, Hill 2, Hart 6, Marshall 2.

Redlands 87,  Redlands East Valley 78--Danny Genung scored 33 points and Brian Roberts had a key steal followed by a three-pointer late in the fourth quarter as Redlands defeated Redlands East Valley in a Citrus Belt League opener. Redlands East Valley sank six three-pointers in outscoring Redlands 26-18 in the third quarter and tying it 60-60 heading into the fourth. Genung and Alex Graham added 13 points apiece for Redlands (9-8).

Rialto 80, Miller 55--Senior point guard Marques Davis scored a game-high 21 points to go along with seven rebounds and six assists as Rialto pulled away from Fontana Miller in the second half to win the Citrus Belt League opener for both teams. Senior guard Jocquis Sconiers had 16 points, 10 assists and five rebounds and senior forward David Joiner contributed 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Knights (14-1), who led 37-31 at halftime and used a full-court press to extend their lead to 55-44 after three quarters. Miller never got within single digits in the fourth quarter MILLER (55) -- Vernon 9, Pegram 12, Scott 5, Kingsland 4, Lanzarotto 6, Ward 4, Clark 2, Ramirez 13.

Allred, a 5-foot-11, 150-pounder blocked Sidney Melvin's shot down low on Desert's second offensive possession in overtime. From there, Desert seemed to stop trying to score down low, instead opting to shoot strictly from the outside. However, the Scorpions got cold and even had two airballs from 3-point range in the last minute of the game.  Senior Michael Williams made four 3-pointers in the first quarter as Desert sprinted to an 18-15 lead.

Center Joe Miranda added 13 and Mike Williams had 12.

Pasadena 59, Arcadia 49-- The Arcadia High School basketball team went up against a taller, bigger and more athletic Pasadena team in Pacific League play on Tuesday afternoon. The host Apaches kept the game tight, but ultimately it was the Bulldogs' experienced veterans that stepped up late in the game in Pasadena's 59-49 victory. The Apaches never trailed by more than seven points in the first 3 1/2 quarters and even led the highly-regarded Bulldogs early in the fourth quarter. With two minutes remaining, Kenny Lieu made a 3-pointer to get Arcadia within two at 46-44.   But Pasadena turned the game over to its veterans and 25 seconds was all it took for Pasadena to put the game out of reach.  Senior guard Reggie Harmon, who was benched for most of the first half after an apparent disagreement with coach Tim Tucker, answered Lien with a 3-pointer on Pasadena's next possession.  Then senior forward Josh Duncan stepped in front of an Arcadia pass and slashed all alone to the basket. Arcadia sophomore Jay Salter committed a foul from behind as Duncan scored a lay-up and was charged with an intentional foul.  Duncan made both free throws to give Pasadena a comfortable 53-44 lead with 1:35 on the clock. The Bulldogs are now 11-5, and 2-0.    Arcadia is 5-13, 0-2. Sophomore guards Salter and Brent Dohling combined for 18 points and four 3-pointers while center Brett Hallimore held his own in the paint with 10 rebounds and three blocks.  Pasadena's starting senior backcourt had a forgettable day. All-league guard Harmon had nine points and Kenny Story scored zero. But forwards Duncan and Dino Wilburn played well, with 20 and 15 points respectively.  With just over six minutes remaining, Lien hit a jumper followed by Eric Erpenbeck's wild lay-up over Pasadena's 6-foot-8 center Doug Thomas to give Arcadia a 39-38 lead.  Pasadena outscored Arcadia, 21-10, the rest of the way.

Suburban League

Artesia 71, Mayfair 48-- We couldn't be at this game due to other commitments last night, but we managed to catch most of it on tape delay because the game was on Fox Sports West 2 last night.  We watched about 2 1/2 quarters before we had to turn it off.  This was not a pretty game. While Jason Kapono getting accolades for the retirment of his jersey at halftime, Artesia literally beat up on Mayfair.  As Louis Johnson of the Press-Telegram wrote though, perhaps more charitably than we would have described what was clearly a mugging (a very skilled mugging, but a mugging nevertheless) "Jack Martinez and Amaury Fernandez were dominating inside, and the Pioneers were the beneficiaries of a big first-half lead en route to a 71-48 victory over the visiting Monsoons before a standing-room-only crowd and a live television audience courtesy of Fox Sports Net 2."   Artesia dominated not just inside, but in every aspect of the game. At the half, this game was long over for Mayfair. As Louis also wrote though, " If the Monsoons ever bring their second-half game to the first half, they have the best chance of anyone in the league of stopping the Pioneers' streak of victories. But there's a reason why Artesia is so dominant in the first half against Mayfair, and it all starts with defense. The Pioneers forced 10 turnovers and held the Monsoons to just 4-of-20 shooting from the field in the first 16 minutes. It took Mayfair more than four minutes to score their first field goal in each of the first two quarters. Artesia, conversely, made 14 of its 26 shots and had just two turnovers during the same span to take a 40-18 lead at the half." Thus, you can see why we turned it off and just couldn't watch anymore. So we'll rely on Louis' final account of the rest of the game:  "Martinez, in only his second game back since injuring a knee at the end of last month, had 7 points, 11 rebounds and 2 blocks and sophomore guard Jon Steffanson scored 8 points in the opening half. Fernandez took over in the second half, scoring 12 of his team-high 16 points - most of them in spectacular fashion - to keep the Monsoons at bay. Martinez finished with 13 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks for Artesia. Steffanson added 10 points and senior point guard Andre Hazel delivered 11 points before fouling out early in the fourth quarter. Mayfair shooting guard Josh Childress battled foul trouble early and never got on track offensively. The 6-foot-6 shooter did manage a game-high 19 points, but the quick fouls hampered his aggressiveness. . . . "    Artesia improves to 15-1, 4-0, and picked up its 60th consecutive league win. Mayfair drops to 11-4,  and 2-1.
