Washington 84, San Pedro 62--The host Generals (5-17, 0-7) went on a 19-0 run in the third quarter to put the game out of reach. Malik Rahh scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Pirates (5-17, 0-7). Terry Dyson and Steve Fausto added 11 points each.

Banning 67, Narbonne 61--Narbonne came back from a 22-point deficit to close within three with two minutes left, but Banning held on for the win. Tony Lara made two three throws with a minute to go to seal the win for Pilots (10-11, 4-3). Lara scored 19 points. Uzoma Mmeje had a team-high 17 points for Narbonne.

Sunset Six League

Grant 67, Canoga Park 55-- Grant, led by DeWayne Anderson's 19 points and nine rebounds, rolled past Canoga Park 67-55 in Sunset Six League play.
Anderson scored 15 of his points in the final two quarters, when the Lancers (7-15, 7-0) pulled away from a 29-29 halftime tie. Krishna Evans added 11 points and 11 rebounds for Grant.

West Valley League

Cleveland 78, Chatsworth 56-- Quenton Harvey had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead Cleveland of Reseda past visiting Chatsworth 78-56 in West Valley League play. Anthony Davis added 18 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland (15-7, 6-1), which remained on track for a Feb. 11 home-court showdown with West Valley leader Taft. Shayne Berry had a game-high 24 points for Chatsworth, 1-7 in league.

Taft 61, Granada Hills 53-- Taft cruised to its 17th straight victory, 61-53, over host Granada Hills on Wednesday in a West Valley League boys' basketball game.  Gregg Guenther  finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while freshman Steve Smith scored 20 points. Taft (17-1, 7-0 in league) hasn't lost since its opener against Pasadena Marshall in November.  Although Taft has been tested twice by Granada Hills and once by Cleveland in league play, the competitive fire that once burned bright in the Toreadors seems to be diminishing with every victory.   Granada Hills (11-11, 3-4), which trailed by one point at halftime, was again hurt by poor shooting. The Highlanders shot just 32% from the field.  Except for the opening minute, Granada Hills always trailed.  Andrew Phongsamran had a chance to get the Highlanders within two points with 5:45 left in the first half, but couldn't convert a three-point play after being fouled on a baseline jumper.  Taft responded with a 6-0 run for a 28-19 lead, but went scoreless in the final 4:11. Granada Hills scratched out eight points to get within, 28-27, at intermission. Granada Hills, kept alive with offensive rebounds, cut a 12-point deficit to six in a two-minute span late in the fourth quarter.  But Guenther buried 12- and 10-foot jumpers on consecutive possessions for a 56-46 lead with 1:22 remaining.  Ryan Hicks scored 15 points, Jorge Price had 14 and Midwin Francis had 23 rebounds and six points for Granada Hills. 

Valley Mission League

Monroe 57, Kennedy 50--Monroe of North Hills overcame a four-point second quarter to defeat host Kennedy of Granada Hills 57-50. The Vikings (11-9, 7-0) got a team-high 20 points from Ramal Goodrich, 12 from Robert Palafox and 10 from Alfredo Cuevas. Dax Grooms had 22 points for

Bay League

Compton Centennial 86, Redondo 65--The Redondo boys basketball team was looking at perhaps its biggest game of the Bay League season Wednesday night. A win against Centennial would keep the Sea Hawks' league title hopes alive for next Tuesday's game against first-place Inglewood. But any thoughts of a Bay League championship were quickly erased, as the Sea Hawks came out flat and lost to the Apaches, 86-65, at Redondo. Redondo  dropped to 18-4, 8-3 in the Bay League. Redondo opened the game strong, jumping out to an 8-2 lead. Then Centennial's Jurrell Davis quickly changed the momentum. Davis, a West Torrance High transfer, proceeded to run off 15 consecutive points behind three 3-pointers and three steals. He finished the first quarter with 17 points. When Davis was done in the first quarter, Centennial (7-4 in league) had a comfortable 21-10 lead and was never challenged again. Davis finished with 22 points and six rebounds. The Sea Hawks trailed at halftime, 37-21, thanks to 8-of-26 shooting and 11 first-half turnovers. Centennial, which was led by point guard Eric Alvarez's 28 points, opened up leads as large as 28 points in the fourth quarter. While Centennial was scoring with ease, Redondo struggled to find any offensive rhythm. Ryan Mollins led Redondo with 23 points and Walter White had 12. Andrew Zahn, who didn't have many offensive touches, scored 11 points, five of which came from the free-throw line.

Inglewood 48, Morningside 46--Earl Felix scored the game-winning basket with less than 30 seconds remaining to lift the Sentinels (19-3, 10-1) at  Morningside (15-9, 7-4). Anthony Davis scored a team-high 14 points and Brian Taylor had 13 for Inglewood, which erased an eight-point halftime deficit by outscoring Morningside, 15-5, in the third quarter. Tracy Cathey led all scorers with 17 points for Morningside.

South Torrance 63, North Torrance 50--The Spartans took a 17-10 first-quarter lead and never looked back against the visiting Saxons. B.J. Hart scored a team-high 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Matt Peterson scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds for South Torrance (11-12, 2-9). Ron Richards scored a game-high 21 points for North Torrance (0-11 in league).
