League Games  Tuesday 1/9/01

City Section

Western League

Westchester 84, Fairfax 64-- Wave, after wave, after wave. . . the Comets (14-1, 3-0) just kept coming, and Ed Azzam was doing his best imitation of a hockey coach on Tuesday night, substituting in whole line-change shifts, five at a time. "That's how you keep 10 starters happy all at the same time," one of the assistant coaches said to us after the game.   For those who didn't get a chance to see the game live, or on the Fox Sports West broadcast (it was live on Tuesday), words will never really be able to do this game justice.  But as Gary Klein wrote this morning in the LA Times, "If there was any doubt whether Westchester High has the depth and experience to win a second consecutive City Section boys' basketball championship and challenge for the state Division I title, the Comets erased it Tuesday night against Fairfax."   Westchester was, simply speaking and in a word, dominant.  Oh sure, Fairfax (11-4, 2-1) had Craig Smith who has signed at Boston College and finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Evan Burns who literally can be a human highlight clip (but those highlights were strangely missing in this game), but this game was just not in doubt after three quarters, and Fairfax ran through the fourth quarter with their tongues hanging down to their knees, panting and turning the ball over---even if Kevin Bell was able to dribble through the press, his biggest problem, and thus Fairfax' biggest problem was what to do after getting from the backcourt into the frontcourt.   Bell would turn on the afterburners, but then  instead of getting the ball into the hands of either Smith as often as not, KB would charge into the lane and launch a floater. . . sure a couple dropped, but more didn't than did. . and when they didn't, it was usually Westchester who got the ball back. Brandon Heath was, as usual, tremendous both offensively and defensively, and he finished with 18 points, including four threes, with one in the first half launched from way out near where the hash mark is supposed to be (in other words this was a 30'+ shot which swished.   Hassan Adams also played very well, scored 16 points and had one of the prettiest left-handed swooping layups we've seen this year. Scott Cutley had 12 and Chad Bell added nine points for Westchester.  Kevin Bell scored 10 points for Fairfax.

The team missed 19 of 21 shots in the second half.   Wong, who led all Keppel scorers, managed just eight points.
