Century League

Villa Park 66, Canyon 62 (OT)--Matt MacGinnis scored four of his 17 points to open overtime as fourth-ranked Villa Park had to work hard to outlast Canyon, 66-62, in a Century League game Friday at Villa Park.  The Spartans, thanks to free throws by Sean Phaler and Matt Waldrip and a basket by Tommy Stankan, led 53-46 with 1:33 to play in regulation. But Canyon climbed back on the shoulders of Derron Putnam -- who scored a game-high 30 points -- and got back in the game. Putnam hit a three-pointer and a layup and Canyon was suddenly trailing by two points with 1:07 left in the fourth quarter. Villa Park got a layup from Stankan with 20 seconds to play, but Canyon answered it with a three-pointer by Nate Miller with 10 seconds left to close to 55-54. After the Spartans' Waldrip went to the line, Villa Park took a 57-54 lead with 6.8 seconds on the clock. Canyon moved the ball quickly down court. Putnam waited for a defender to fly past him at the three-point line, then put up an awkward-looking three that went in just before the buzzer. But the Comanches weren't so lucky in overtime. MacGinnis' four points gave Villa Park the lead in the early going, Canyon was never able to cut that advantage to less than three points. Canyon played Villa Park tough from the outset, with the lead changing hands eight times in the first 12 minutes. Villa Park took a 21-20 lead with 4:35 to play in the first half on a jumper by Kyle Egkan -- and would never trail again in the game. From there, Villa Park went on a roll. The Spartans scored 12 consecutive points in the final 4:35 of the half -- while holding Canyon scoreless -- to push the lead to 31-20 at halftime. Canyon slowly chipped away at it in the third quarter, cutting it to 42-40 on a three-pointer by Putnam with two seconds left in the quarter.

Ventura 69, Dos Pueblos 66 (OT)--Trevor Prophet made a three-point basket with 25 seconds left in the second overtime to give Ventura a 67-66 lead and Jimmy Ikeda added two free throws in a Channel League game at Ventura. The Cougars are 11-8, 2-1. Dos Pueblos missed 8-of-10 free throws down the stretch, allowing Ventura to emerge with a 69-66 Channel League victory in double overtime. The Cougars were led by Brian Easterly, who nailed two 3-pointers and tallied 29 points. One of his 3-pointers came at a crucial point in the first overtime. Easterly's shot sent the game into double overtime, which is when the Cougars took advantage of DP's missed opportunities at the free-throw line to win the game. Coach Sherman told the Santa Barbara News-Press that his team shouldn't have even played the overtime period. "We were up two with about a minute left when they made a free throw to cut the lead to one, " Sherman said. "But the scorekeeper recounted the score and said an extra point was found. That tied the game at 52, but there was nothing we could do about it because it was the official book."  In the first overtime, the Chargers (0-2, 11-5) had a chance to win the game at the free-throw line with seven seconds left. They missed the front end of a 1-and-1, got the ball back on a rebound and picked up another foul. But they missed another the front end of another 1-and-1, sending the game into another overtime period.  Steve Graybill led the Chargers with 17 points.

Palmdale 71, Quartz Hill 66--Jason Chambers' shot wasn't falling in the first quarter, but he scored 25 points over the next three quarters, including three 3-pointers and six-of-seven from the free-throw line. Quartz Hill's Anthony Johnson did his best to make sure the Falcons (8-9, 1-2) weren't there. The senior guard scored 36 points, 21 of them in the first half. But Johnson, Quartz Hill's best free-throw shooter, missed two crucial shots from the line in the final minute with the Rebels (12-4, 2-1) trailing by two.  Before that trip to the line, Johnson was eight-of-eight on the game.  Johnson's misses set up a frenzied finish. After the missed shots, the Rebels fouled Palmdale's David Hall. Hall missed both of his shots, but Chambers cut inside a Quartz Hill player to steal the rebound and lay it in. Palmdale led, 65-61.  The Falcons hit three of their next four free throws, but Johnson hit a 10-foot jumper and a three from the top of the key, pulling the Rebels within two. With 22.6 seconds remaining, the Falcons tried an ill-advised baseball-style pass the length of the floor. Quartz Hill's Scott Lankford stole it and was fouled.  With a chance to tie the game, he missed both free throws. But the Rebels fouled Chambers, who missed one of his free throws, giving Quartz Hill the ball, trailing by three with 16.8 seconds left. A poor pass by Johnson led to a scramble for a loose ball, which somehow ended up in Quartz Hill's David Williams' hands with four seconds left. Williams' 3-pointer clanged off the front of the rim. Cory McElroy iced the game with two free throws with 2.3 seconds remaining.

Los Padres League

Atascadero def. St. Joseph Santa Maria--This was sort of weird because the SLO Tribune reported the game details, but not the score. . . and not enough game details to actually piece together the score. . . oh well at least we've got the two teams' records and we know Atascadero won.  Here's what the paper had:   "The Greyhounds snapped a four-game losing streak, beating the Knights in the St. Joseph gym.  Atascadero, 1-2 in the LPL and 9-8 overall, trailed by 10 points, 38-28, at halftime. But the Greyhounds rallied behind an 18-point third quarter and a 26-point fourth quarter. Riley Prickett had 19 points for Atascadero, while Pat Bresnahan had 18, Jordan Lieser 17 and Issac Saiz 13.  St. Joseph, 0-4 in the LPL and 7-11 overall, had 22 points from Dustin Kelly and 20 from Ryan Smith. Atascadero is idle until Friday, when it goes on the road to face Cabrillo."  . . .  See what we mean?

Zimmerman produced six points and four assists as the Eagles steadily pulled away from the Tiger in the final 24 minutes of the game. With the win, Arroyo Grande improved to 17-2 on the season, 3-0 in league play and set up a showdown Wednesday at Lompoc, also 3-0 in league games.  San Luis Obispo, despite playing without center Jeff Jenkins (out with the flu), amassed a 36-22 advantage on the boards, with Greg Morales and Chad Vicory each pulling down seven. But it was about the only statistic in which the Tigers had the edge. Arroyo Grande made 53 percent of its floor shots, stole the ball 10 times and forced San Luis Obispo to turn the ball over 19 times. The Eagles had just eight turnovers. San Luis Obispo’s only leads of the game were at 2-0 and 4-2.   Arroyo Grande went on a 9-0 run in the first quarter, outscored the Tigers 17-8 in the third period and had its biggest lead of the game at 62-41 midway through the final quarter when Phillip Johnson slam dunked the ball off an alley-oop pass from Sean Shields. “We wanted an up-tempo game tonight and we ran the floor very well in the second half,” said Byars.

Arcadia 60, Glendale 57--Glendale overcame a 14-point margin in the fourth quarter but lost in the final minute to Arcadia, 60-57, in a league game Friday at Arcadia High.  Glendale (8-10, 0-2 in league) yielded a three-point basket by Arcadia's Brent Dohling with 24 seconds left to make it 58-55. Dohling, a guard who finished with five three-pointers, made a pair of free throws with one second left to send Glendale to its third consecutive loss. The Nitros, who were outscored by 14 points Tuesday in the final six minutes of a 62-48 league loss to Crescenta Valley, erased a 52-38 Arcadia lead early in the fourth quarter. Glendale's Hugo Guerrero scored six fourth-quarter points, including four in a stretch of 20 seconds which enabled Glendale to tie the game at 53 with two minutes left.  Arcadia (12-6, 1-1 in league) used a 25-12 spurt in the third quarter to open a 14-point lead entering the fourth quarter.  The Nitros were plagued by foul trouble throughout the second half, as starters Riley Van Patten and Guerrero each collected their fourth personal fouls. Dohling's ability to hit several open jump shots left Glendale skidding and Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress searching for answers, using his timeouts to find a way to cool off Dohling.

Crescenta Valley 86, Pasadena 65-- Crescenta Valley led by as much as 33 points in the Pacific League contest before winning, 85-67, to improve to 14-3 and 2-0 in league.

CV scored 26 points in the first quarter, 11 by Jimmy Goffredo who finished with 20 and four threes.  Pasadena fell to 8-8, 1-1 with the loss.  James Jenkins, who scored just 13 against Glendale led all scorers with 34 points.

Northwood cut the deficit to two with a three-pointer late in the third quarter, but a basket by Eric Snell and two Brewster free throws iced the victory. Northwood, in its debut varsity campaign and without seniors, fell to 13-5, 0-2. Snell and Alshuler scored seven points apiece and Orris credited Alshuler's strong rotation as the key to CdM's matchup man-to-man (zone) defense.

Estancia 57, Laguna Beach 32--Eliasar Maldonado scored a game-high 25 points leading the Eagles to a 57-32 PCL victory Friday. Despite losing junior forward Micah Young to a sprained left ankle for three quarters, the Eagles (6-10, 1-1 in league) won. After shooting 3 for 9 in the first half, Maldonado found his touch in the third quarter. He scored 12 of Estancia's 16 points in the quarter as he missed just one shot and hit two three-pointers. A Laguna Beach player converted on an easy layup, but it was at the wrong basket and Maldonado was nearest to the play and was credited with the points NOTE:  This is a rules violation--  The National Federation Rules clearly state that when a goal is scored in the wrong basket, no player is credited with the points, but a notation is to be made in the scorers book indicating which player made the wrong goal. The Artists drop to 4-13, 0-2 with the loss.  Estancia junior George Prado (four points) dished out five assists to Maldonado. Eagles sophomore Matt Cachola, who scored six points, provided solid ballhandling on offense to use up the clock. Estancia's Valbuena brothers, Danny and Kenny, played aggressively, matching the Artists' physical play. Danny finished with eight points and Kenny scored seven. Estancia 10 14 16 17 - 57 Laguna Beach 3 3 10 16 - 32 Estancia - Maldonado 25, D. Valbuena 8, K.

Monrovia 70, La Canada 68 (OT)-- La Canada had no answer for the 6-foot-6 Bryant Markson, who torched the Spartans for a career-high 46 points in a 70-68 overtime victory Friday night at La Canada High. Markson scored 31 of his points in the second half and overtime as the Spartans (13-4, 1-1 in league) tried three different defenders against him man on man, an occasional double team and even two attempts at a zone defense, all to no avail. Markson scored the final eight points in regulation for the Wildcats (14-3, 2-0 in league) and six of their nine points in overtime. Markson shot 17 of 27 from the field, 10 of 14 from the free-throw line and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds.  After being down by as much as 12 points late in the second quarter, Monrovia rallied to take a 48-43 lead with 30 seconds remaining in the third quarter. From that point on the teams combined for three ties and 14 lead changes, answering each other's best effort with each offensive trip in the fourth quarter and the extra period.   In the final 5:33 of regulation, the teams regained the lead from one another in 10 straight offensive possessions.  The Spartans went ahead, 60-59, with Phil Swenson's basket at the 1:09 mark of the fourth quarter, but Markson responded with a layup with 23 seconds left. Mark Moore made one of two free throws with 14 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 61. Monrovia's Ryan O'Hara, who finished with five points and seven rebounds, missed wide left from 15 feet at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

Billy Hofman added 16 points and five assists, Swenson tallied 11 points and six rebounds, and Moore had five points and 10 rebounds for La Canada.  Jordan Ballard contributed 12 points for the Spartans, including a three-pointer in overtime, but the senior missed three shots in the final minute of the extra period to give Hofman's squad the win.

Mater Dei 71, Santa Margarita 51--Jamal Sampson and Cedric Bozeman (24 points) combined for seven dunks as Mater Dei (16-2, 2-0) turned its 31-28 halftime lead into a comfortable victory. And Mater Dei did it without playing the final 8:01 with Sampson, who was ejected for his second technical foul.  Guards Ricky Porter and Bozeman took over the fourth quarter, combining to score 15 of the Monarchs' 21 points. But what set the tone for the Monarchs in the second half was their defense that pressured Santa Margarita into a terrible shooting night.  Ricky Porter, a senior finished with 17 points.  Mater Dei is currently ranked 16th in the nation by USA Today.  The Monarchs held Santa Margarita (16-2, 1-1) to five field goals on 24 shots. The Eagles shot only 16 of 54 from the floor in the game (30 percent), which included a 5-of-24 effort from beyond the three-point line.  Mater Dei opened the second half by going on a 9-0 run to open a 40-28 advantage. Mike Strawberry got the Monarchs going with a fadeaway banked from close range. Strawberry, who finished with four assists, then threw a wraparound pass to Sampson for a dunk and foul shot to cap a fastbreak. Sampson, who finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds, capped the run with two foul shots. Sampson was ejected with one second left in the third quarter with his second technical foul:  He was called for pushing Santa Margarita's Brandon Rohe during a double-technical call. Still, even without Sampson, the Monarchs pressed on in the fourth Mater Dei also outrebounded Santa Margarita, 37-17. Sampson didn't start the game because of missed practice time related to the flu and a sore right ankle. But he did convert a three-point play with 57 seconds left in the first quarter to give Mater Dei a 15-14 lead. Mater Dei led despite five turnovers in the quarter. Santa Margarita stayed close despite making only 1 of 10 three-pointers in the first. But the bigger problem for the Eagles was the foul trouble of Adam Tancredi. The 6-foot-8 center picked up two first-period fouls and was on the bench when the 6-foot-11 Sampson asserted himself against the much smaller Eagles. Sampson had a dunk and a basket, and a layup by Bozeman gave Mater Dei a 21-14 lead. But Tancredi returned and Santa Margarita closed the gap and even led 28-27 on a three-pointer by R.J. Socci (a team-high 13 points) with 1:03 left in the half.
