Game Scores & Details From
Saturday, 2/3/01--(Feb. 4, 2001)

Just a few games played yesterday as everyone gets ready for the final push toward the playoffs.  One week remaining in the "regular season" for high school teams. The last regular season games have to be concluded by this Friday, February 9.  On Saturday, the CIF-SS and City Section seeding committees will go to work, and create the playoff brackets, and then the following week, the single-elimination march to the Section and State Championships will begin, culminating in the State Finals at the Arco Arena in Sacramento  more than a month from now, on March 16 & 17. . . it's a long trip, but only the very strongest and luckiest will survive it.   For some teams, it will be all they can do just to qualify for the playoffs, and this week's games will make the difference between ending the season, and getting the chance to continue on. . for others, it will be time to hang it up, and for still others, the week's games won't mean much in terms of the playoffs, but there are still league races on the line which will be determined.

Here's what happened last night, Saturday, February 3. As always, if you know a game score or the details of a game which we've been unable to find or which isn't reported here, let us know either by e-mail of by posting it to the message board.

But in the second half it was a blowout.  Los Al Junior forward Mark Lotman led the Griffins with 10 points, while Eric Yarger and Brian Rakusin each scored 9.  Bozeman was 9 for 17 from the field and also was named MVP of the game.  Mike Strawberry and Travis Gabler each added 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds for Mater Dei.

Lynwood 73, Compton 60-- The game which was supposed to take place three weeks ago at the Double Pump Hoop Classic but didn't finally got off yesterday afternoon at Lynwood HS, and the Knights won behind Keyon Kensie's (6'-4" Sr. F) 24 points and 13 rebounds. Kensie shot 12-15 from the field.  Senior guard Jamar Frazier added 14 points for Lynwood (5-12).  For Compton (11-13) Mike Grier (6'-6" Jr. F) scored 15 points, 5 boards and 4 steals.  Gary Hester and Marquis Washington each scored 13

Long Beach Poly 41, Artesia 40-- This was an ugly game, reminiscent of the last time these two teams matched up at the Pond in the Southern Section finals, a low scoring, ugly game as well.  This time Poly got its own measure of revenge for that game, but they did it without Wesley Stokes and without having to worry about Jason Kapono, who had bigger fish to fry on Saturday up at Stanford as UCLA knocked off the last remaining undefeated team. . .  While Poly never trailed in the second half this was still an ugly game. Poly (21-5) only shot 31 percent from the field and 33 percent from the free-throw line.  Artesia shot pretty well at the line (16-25) but were plagued by turnovers, and they too shot a miserable 31% from the field. Artesia senior point guard Ryan Reyes also apparently broke his nose in the second quarter and didn't return.  Poly's Carlos Rivers (6'-0" Jr. PG) had 12 points, 5 assists and 3 steals. Artesia senior guard Tony Roberts had 10 points and a team-high 8 rebounds.
