Recap: Boys' Game Results From
Saturday, Jan. 22--(Jan. 22, 2000)

Only a very few games scheduled tonight, in fact so few, that we even hesitate to post this in our usual format (listing all of those leagues where there are no games scheduled also).  But since there are so few, we've located them all right at the top of this scheduling report, just so you can spot them more easily.   Here are the ones we know about, and by the way just remember that we get these schedules from the CIF, so if there are errors, blame them, not us.  Check with your local paper or the schools involved before making the trip to be sure there have been no scheduling changes.

Liberty League

Buckley 67, Viewpoint 38--Buckley (14-2, 7-0) moved into sole possession of first place in the Liberty League with the win at Viewpoint (6-10, 1-6) on Saturday night.  The Griffins were led by Colin Ward Henninger (6'-4" Jr. SG/SF) with 21 points and 12 rebounds, and David Gale (6'-0" So. PG) with 7 points, 7 assists and 5 steals.   Adam Pastor (6'-0" Jr. SG) also had 14 points for the Griffins, who will face Providence on Thursday night at Buckley in the first of two showdowns between the league favorites. Buckley is currently ranked as the No. 7 team in the Division V-AA CIF Southern Section poll, while Providence is ranked at No. 5 in the Division IV-A poll.  Buckley broke the game with Viewpoint wide open with a 21-9 second quarter and then proceeded ot widen the gap in  the third and fourth quarters.  Others scoring for Buckley were Mike Lalezarian with 5, Simon Leonove with 4, Royal Weaver 6, Alex Clancy 8, and Jake Scannell 2. 

Yeshiva 48, Providence 42--We didn't get the final scoring, but from what we saw of this game, it was a great win for Yeshiva (6-3 in league, 11-8 overall).  We don't have stats for individual players, but Yeshiva was led by Avi Hami, Yitzi Katz and Adam Missry, from what we witnessed.  Alex Gabbai, a tall forward with long arms, rebounded well for Yeshiva, and Providence's shooters, especially Derek Jones and Shant Bekmezian, were generally frustrated the entire night.  The score at the half was 20-15, and Providence (15-3, 7-1), currently ranked No. 5 in the SCIBCA CIF poll in Division IV-A, only managed 7 first quarter points and 8 second quarter points.  While Providence managed to cut the lead to just one late in the game, eventually Providence was forced to foul and the Panthers hung on for the win at home.

Windward 62, Avalon 52--no details of this second game were available, but with the win, Windward improved to 6-3 in league and moved into a tie with Yeshiva for third place in the league. Avalon remains winless in league at 0-8.

Mission League

Chaminade 62, Alemany 53--Chaminade controlled this game from start to finish, and even though Alemany had a brief run in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Eagles 22-17, it was the decisive second quarter, in which Chaminade outscored Alemany 18-7 which clinched the game, giving the Eagles a 31-17 halftime lead which they never relinquished.  Scott Borchart had 14 points and Ryan Arceo 16 for Chaminade.  Others scoring were Hufford 6, Hill 9, O'Gilvie 6, Johnson 6 an dFefebvre 5.  Alemany was led by Joseph with 15 and Cline with 13.  Reny Maynard scored 8. Others scoring for Alemany were Danowitz 4, Zamora 3, Edwards 2 and Heath 8.   Chaminade is now 13-5, 4-2 in league and Alemany drops to 6-13, 1-5.

St. Francis 63, Crespi 54--The slide continues for Crespi (9-10, 1-5) which has not won a game since taking the Westlake tournament in December as they lost to St. Francis, which for the first time in a long time finds itself with a winning record, 10-9 and 3-3 in league.  St. Francis had three players in double figures: Jeff Brown with 10, Jenkins with 18, and Mitchell with 17.  Others scoring were Sims 9, Gonzalez 4, vidaurrazaga 3 and John 2.  Crespi was led by Andrew Moore and Devin St. Albin who scored 12 points each. Other Celt scorers were Pat Cassela 4, Shieber 4, Grimnes 2, Tunney 8, Biernat 8, Ellis 3, Roginson 1. Again, as in so many games won and lost on Saturday night, it was the decisive second quarter which was Crespi's undoing, as St. Francis outscored the Celts 19-9 and never relinquished the lead. Scoring by quarters: Crespi--10  9  15  20--54;  St. Francis-- 10   19  18  16--63.

Others scoring for the Wolverines were Austin Scott 6, Craig Weinstein 9, Chris Hooks 2, Brian Coffey 6, and Kelechi Ogbunamiri 1.   Loyola (7-12, 2-4) was led by Gaston with 14 and Sean Crosner with 20, while Matt Llewelyn hit for 12 and Flynn-Brown scored 13.  Omar Wilkes had 5, Jones 2, Elliot 6, and Tannenbaum 2. Harvard-Westlake trialed 31-30 at the half, but then outscored Loyola 23-17 in the third, and 30-26 in the fourth to hang on for the win.  Harvard will take on Crespi on Tuesday in a game which will be televised on Fox Sports West 2.
