Boys' Game Scores And Details For
Monday, Feb. 7--(Feb. 8, 2000)
Since there were so few games yesterday, we'll keep the details and the scores in a single article. Not much going on last night, but there were some surprising results that we know about: Harvard Westlake had it's unbeaten league season spoiled by St. Francis, which knocked off the Wolverines 70-50; Simi Valley secured it's league title in Marmonte by killing Newbury Park by 29 points; Buckley remains unbeaten in Liberty League at 12-0 with a 33 point win over Oakwood; Chaminade won, but got some bad news about a one game forfeit which drops them into a tie with St. Francis for third in Mission League. Bishop Montgomery won (again) while Serra lost (again). And Poly hammered Jordan 75-51, to assure itself of the Moore League title. As always, if you know a score or some details of a game we haven't reported on (or one we're showing as "not reported") by all means, send it in, either by e-mail or by posting to the message forum.

Chaminade 66, Loyola 56--Scott Borchart made seven of nine shots and finished with 25 points for the host Eagles (15-8, 6-5) in a Mission League victory. The LA Times' Eric Sondheimer also reported this morning that Chaminade has forfeited its Mission League boys' basketball victory over St. Francis on Friday after violating Southern Section rules when sophomore Jon Todd played in both the junior varsity and varsity games. "It was an unfortunate mistake and we're self-reporting," Athletic Director Rob Webb told Sondheimer. The forfeit moves St. Francis (14-11, 6-5 in league play) into a tie for third place with Chaminade (15-8, 6-5), which was 0-3 in Mission games last week. The Eagles lost in overtime to Harvard-Westlake and Notre Dame.

Long Beach Poly 75, Long Beach Jordan 51--Poly (24-2) improved to 11-0 in league play to clinch its fourth consecutive title with one game remaining at home against Millikan. The victory was the 522nd for Palmer, who was honored before the tip-off for picking up his 500th win back in November at the Fresno BCW Tournament. Palmer got his first win at Poly in December of 1973. Poly co-principals Mel Collins and Shawn Ashley presented Palmer with a ball signed by members of this season's team during a pregame ceremony. Jordan drops to 8-15, 9-2. Poly never trailed and jumped to a 17-2 lead in the first seven minutes. Missouri-bound Wesley Stokes scored a game-high 24 points, including three 3-point baskets, and dished out four assists. Diggs scored 10 points and A. Martin scored nine off the bench for the Jackrabbits. Poly, which led 32-21 at halftime, scored the first 13 points of the second half to take a 45-21 advantage midway through the third quarter. The Jackrabbits increased their lead to 67-35 with three minutes to play. Donte Contrell led Jordan with 11 points and Alashawn Rodgers added nine for the Panthers.

Compton @ Millikan--not reported
Santa Fe League
La Salle 66, Cathedral 56--Santa Fe (20-6, 8-1) was led by Jason Kenoyer with 19 points and Tommy Remillard's 13. Matt Kelley also had 14 and Chris Rakiewicz had 11 for La Salle. Cathedral (9-16, 2-7) is in danger of not qualifying, and will have to be Salesian on Thursday, the final game of the regular season in order to be eligible for an at-large berth. La Salle takes on Bell-Jeff tomorrow night in a battle which will decide the league title. For now, at least if our math is correct based on the standings published in the LA Times today, Bell Jeff has 2 losses and is at 7-2, while La Salle with the win improved to 8-1, and for now at least La Salle is in the driver's seat for the League title. If Bell Jeff wins, they would earn a share of the title as both teams would be at 8-2.
Price 68, LA Washington 56--details not available.
Tarbut v' Torah 65, Capistrano Valley Christian 19--Noam Dashti scored 20 points and pulled down 15 rebounds while Davie Eghbalid had 9 assists and 6 points for the Lions who improved to 16-4.
