Game Scores And Details From
Saturday, 1/20/01--(Jan. 26, 2001)

Catching up is hard to do. . . but we're trying.  This stuff is from one week ago, Saturday, and since we've been unable for a week to get to it, it's a little bit dated. . . but for those of you stat junkies who follow the polls and the ranking process, the game results are crucial.  We apologize for the lateness, but under the circumstances (which we won't go into here), it's the best we can do.  If you know of a game we missed send us the score (a box score if you have it, and details by all means) either by e-mail or post it to the message board.

McDonald's Invitational Games @ Pasadena CC

Muir 64, Monrovia 63-- A mesmerizing 32 minutes culminated in a mind-boggling 30 seconds in the finale of the Inaugural McDonald's Invitational at Pasadena City College on Saturday.  In a matchup two top-ranked teams, Muir and Monrovia each had several chances to win -- and lose -- before the Mustangs held on for a 64-63 victory. Muir guard Horace Wormely, who made five 3-pointers, sank two free throws with 32.2 seconds left to give the Mustangs a 64-60 lead. Then Frazier intercepted a Monrovia pass in the backcourt and passed back to Wormely, who was unguarded near the free-throw line. With time to dribble out the clock, Wormely instead looked to polish off the game with an uncontested lay-up and missed. Monrovia's Bryant Markson answered with a 3-pointer to bring the Wildcats within 64-63 with 11.5 seconds left. With 8.2 seconds left, Frazier threw an ill-advised pass out of bounds in the backcourt to give Monrovia (16-4) possession. But on the ensuing inbounds pass, Frazier forced a steal to give Muir (18-2) the ball back. Frazier missed a free throw, then was called for a foul in the backcourt. That allowed Markson a chance to give Monrovia the lead with four seconds left on a one-and-one free throw attempt.  But Markson missed the first free throw, his third miss on the front end in the final 3:30, and Muir's Malcolm Johnson got the rebound to end the game. Markson led all players with 35 points and 14 rebounds. Frazier had 21 points, seven rebounds and eight steals.

Bishop Montgomery 69, Pasadena 52--Fred Washington scored 16 points and had nine rebounds to earn player of the game honors at Pasadena City College. Washington, Errick Craven and Derrick Craven each scored eight points in the first quarter to spark a 27-6 run that gave Montgomery (18-2) control. Errick scored 21 points and Derrick finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, all on the offensive boards.  Dino Wilburn of Pasadena, one of the top players in the San Gabriel Valley, finished with a game-high 27 points (according to the Daily Breeze) or 29 points (according to the Pasadena Star-News), take your pick. . .The Knights outscored the Bulldogs, 27-6, in the first quarter and coasted to victory.

La Canada 62, Crescenta Valley 60-- The Spartans played solid basketball, pushed Crescenta Valley standout James Jenkins into early foul trouble and took advantage of a series of late Falcon miscues for a 62-60 victory.  Jenkins had 17 points, 9 rebounds and fouled out with 43.8 seconds to play and sat out the final 5:39 of the first half after picking up his third foul. During that stretch, the Spartans took a 34-29 lead by outscoring Crescenta Valley, 13-4. Crescenta Valley committed four consecutive turnovers in Jenkins' absence.  La Canada took advantage of Jenkins' absence and their guards hit eight 3-pointers and fed the ball inside to Phillip Swenson (10 points, five rebounds) to keep the Crescenta Valley defense extended.  Robbie Neyland scored a game-high 19 points and received player-of-the-game honors.  Jordan Ballard scored 15 points and gave La Canada its final lead with a pair of free throws with 43.8 seconds to play. A missed 3-pointer attempt by Jimmy Godfredo on the ensuing possession and a foul away from the ball by Tim Kula dashed any hopes of a comeback for the Falcons.  

Chaminade 53, Ayala 45--Jordan O'Gilvie had 13 points for the Eagles in a victory at the McDonald's Invitational Games @ Pasadena City College  Scott Borchart had 11 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots for Chaminade (12-7).
