Dominguez 73, Midwest City 67-- This report was posted by John Greene on our message board, so we'll just keep it here for posterity. Thanks to John for sending it in: "The Dominguez Dons beat a talented team from Oklahoma, the Midwest City Bombers, for third place in the Slam Dunk to the Beach tournament in Lewes/Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Tyson Chandler sat out again but the Dons' prevailed 73-67. Led by top junior prospects 6-9, 235 lb Shelden Williams and 6-5 DeAngelo Alexander, Midwest City presented a formidable obstacle to the Dons leaving the tournament with a win and a share of the honors. But right from the tip the Dons took off running and didnt stop until the game was over. The Bombers, an up-tempo team themselves, were on their heals in the first few minutes of the game as the Dons blitzed them with fast breaks and tough trapping defense. Quickly the Dons went ahead on the strength of tough rebounding and balanced scoring. Darius Sanders led with inside scoring and ended the half with 6 boards and 12 points. Tony Bryant contributed to the effort by hitting a pair of threes and going 3 for 5 in the first half. Keion Kindred picked up 6 hard fought boards and 6 points in the half. Although the Bombers Williams ended the half with 17 and Alexander with 10, they got little scoring elsewhere. The score at the half was 39-30, the Dons. In the second half the Dons continued to push the ball. They increased the lead at the end of the third quarter by one to 54 to 44. However, the Bombers continued to contest every shot and every possession and in the fourth quarter started a run. Despite Bobby Jones picking up 12 points late in the game, scoring over and through many packed-in Bomber defenders, the Bombers chipped away at the lead. Though they were outscored 23 to 19 in the forth quarter, the Dons were able to hold off the surging bombers. Keeping them in the game was their 16 for 27 effort from the foul line, while the Bombers were only 1 of 2. When the final horn went off the Dons were up 73 to 67. Sanders, who was constantly going to the basket scoring and ripping down rebounds, ended with the team high in scoring of 21 points and also in rebounds, 10. Jones ended with 17 points and 7 boards and Tony Bryant picked up 14 points. Keion Kindred poured in 11 and pulled down 8 boards. Midwest City was lead by Williams with 26 points and 14 rebounds. Alexander collected 19 points and 6 rebounds in their losing effort. Sanders of the Dons and Williams and Alexander of the Bombers were named tournament all stars.

Ocean View 75, Chatsworth 68--Steve Clarke scored 24 points, including seven three-pointers, to lead the Seahawks (11-2) over Chatsworth (9-2) in the championship of the American Division. A potent combination of long-range outside shooting and low-post height by Ocean View High of Huntington Beach was more than the Chatsworth boys' basketball team could handle Saturday night in the Torrey Pines National Prep Classic in San Diego. Shane Berry led all scorers with 30 points, including 18 points in the fourth quarter, but the comeback by the Chancellors fell short as the Seahawks prevailed 75-68 to win the American Division championship at Torrey Pines High.
