And here are the details of the second round games played Wednesday night, at least the ones we could locate:

No. 1 Westchester 104, No. 9 Grant 54-- The Comets (26-1) crushed Van Nuys Grant HS, alma mater of Arizona All-American Gilbert Arenas, and they did it with sheer numbers of talented players. . . Grant (20-7) hung on for a few minutes, but by the half it was over for all practical purposes. Grant's DeWayne Anderson had 20 points but it wasn't nearly enough against the Comets, who got 18 points from Brandon Bowman and 15 each from David Warsaw and Hassan Adams. Scott Cutley had a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds. John Clemmons also added 10 points and Keith Everage had 11 rebounds as the Comets led 51-23 at halftime. The Comets (26-1) will face Crenshaw in the semifinals on Friday at 8 p.m. at L.A. Southwest.

Crenshaw def Dorsey-- Unbelievably, we couldn't locate the Crenshaw v. Dorsey score in any of the local papers. . . We know that Crenshaw won, but we just don't have any details of the game.

No. 3  Fremont 92, No. 11 Gardena 62--Six players scored more than 10 points for the third-seeded Pathfinders in the victory at Fremont.  Shelvion Williams led the way, scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds for Fremont, which led, 44-28, at halftime.  Willie Dunn had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Earl Felix added 13 points and 11 rebounds for Fremont, which shared the the Coliseum League title with Crenshaw.  Kenton Paulino added 12 points, Darrell Sanford had 11 and Mark Bradford scored 10 for Fremont. 

No. 2 Fairfax 69, No. 7 Washington 64--Craig Smith scored 25 points and Evan Burns added 19 as second-seeded Fairfax defeated Washington in a quarterfinal Wednesday night at Fairfax.  Fairfax earned a semifinal showdown with third-seeded Fremont, a 92-62 winner Wednesday night over Gardena.  Smith, a senior forward who has signed with Boston College, and Burns, one of the top junior forwards in the nation, helped the Lions hold off a Washington team that got 33 points from UCLA-bound forward Andre Patterson. Jasha Bluntt added 13 points for Fairfax, which finished second in the Western League to top-seeded and defending champion Westchester.  Fairfax led, 39-37, at halftime and 55-50 after three quarters. The Lions led by 10 points in the second half.
