La Quinta is 3-9, 0-3.  The Indians converted on 9 of their first 13 shots and then held on in the late going to improve to 1-1 in the DVL. Palm Springs shot 55 percent from the floor against the Blackhawks, making good on 14 of their first 25 in the first half.  Howard led all scorers with 22 points. That effort included scoring 10 of his team’s last 15 points, a stretch that included 7 straight points to hold off a Blackhawks’ rally.  Howard also finished with eight assists, seven rebounds and six steals.

He scored 10 of his 18 points in the quarter.  La Quinta went on a 6-2 run to take a 53-52 lead with just under four minutes to play, setting the stage for Palm Springs’ final stand that won it.

San Dimas 71, Bonita 62 --Antouan Mesropian had 24 points and Ryn Gunderson had 20 for San Dimas (7-3, 2-0) in a Valle Vista League game. Korey Johnson scored 21 for Bonita. Leading by 23 points in the fourth quarter, the Saints fumbled, traveled and fouled their way into a close game, but the clock ran out on the Bearcats as San Dimas (7-3, 2-0) escaped with a 71-62 win. The Saints had led the whole way and led 66-43 after Curtis Small hit a 3-pointer midway through the fourth quarter, but the Bearcats' press changed the course of the game. Bonita (5-5, 1-1) went on a 15-0 run to cut the lead to 66-58 with 1:30 remaining, but the Saints hit enough free throws in the final minute to put the game away.  It was the second time this season that the Bearcats have fallen short in a comeback attempt against San Dimas. Earlier this month in the San Dimas tournament, Bonita found itself in the same situation with a 20-point deficit, but, unlike Friday, the Bearcats were able to force overtime before falling.   The Saints got out quickly in the first half behind 16 points from Ryan Gunderson, including four 3-pointers, and 13 points from Antowan Mesropian. The Saints led 37-22 at the break and extended that lead to 59-38 at the end of the third quarter. Mesropian finished with 24 points including hitting 12 of his first 13 free throws.  Gunderson finished with 20 points, but had only one field goal in the second half and no 3-pointers.   Korey Johnson scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half to lead the Bearcats.

CIF-Southern Section Non-League Games, Friday, 12/22/01

A.B. Miller 101, Valley View 67 --Jacob Ramirez scored 21 points, Jeremiah had 17 points and seven assists, and Victor Mitchell added 13 points for host A.B. Miller (11-1). Marcus Slaughter scored 22 points for Moreno Valley Valley View (4-6).

Arroyo 43, La Puente 32--Carl Whittred scored 16 points for Arroyo (6-6). La Puenta is 5-4. Buu Tran connected on a pair of 3-pointers early that opened the inside game for Carl Whittred and laid the foundation for the Knights' victory. Whittred, a 6-foot-4 junior center, finished with a team-high 16 points and eight rebounds as Arroyo evened its record at 6-6.

Bishop Amat 64, Duarte 49-- Duarte High school jumped on Bishop Amat early, then kept the Lancers on the ropes for three quarters. But the Lancers' size and strength eventually took over, and a knockout punch in the way of a late 14-0 run helped them post a 64-49 victory over the Falcons in Friday's nonleague boys basketball contest at Duarte. John Haywood paced Bishop Amat with 18 points and three other Lancers -- Paul Porter (12 points), Andrew Soto (10) and Cesar Rodriguez (10) -- finished in double figures as the Lancers improved to 9-2.  The Falcons, who led 32-28 at the half and trailed only 46-43 after three quarters, were led by Hamzah El'Amin's 11 points. Justin Bipialaka finished with 10 points and center Jason Marquez had four blocks and eight rebounds, but the Falcons fell to 1-7. The Lancers shot just 3-of-14 from the field in the first quarter, which helped the Falcons build confidence. The longer Duarte stuck around, the tighter Bishop Amat seemed to get. Soto hit a 10-footer with 2:08 in the third quarter to give Bishop Amat a 40-38 lead, its first since the third quarter. With a three-point lead going into the fourth quarter, Bishop Amat scored the first 12 points to take a 58-43 lead, then cruised home.

Buena Park 59, California 38 --Zach Barker had 15 points, DeAndre Robinson added 13 and Randy Urias finished with 12 for visiting Buena Park (9-2). Matt Amigo scored 15 points for California (1-9).  The Condors never recovered from a dismal first quarter as California  found itself down by 17 points at the end of the opening period.  For the Coyotes, Friday's victory was one that came mainly from effort on the defensive end. Buena Park spread its scoring evenly, with forward Zach Barker's 15 points leading the way.  The Coyotes focused on denying California's Matt Amido any open looks at the basket, and while he led his team with 10 points, Amido was challenged on every shot, missing  every shot in the first quarter. Stephen LaCarra also scored 10 points for the Condors. Jarred Nutt contributed nine points; Korey Bradbury and Kiel Kearney had four points apiece.  The Condors played even with the Coyotes for most of the second half. In fact, the third quarter was the only one in which Barber's team scored more than 10 points. Still, that didn't prevent Buena Park from taking a 21-point lead into the fourth quarter.

Crescenta Valley 69, Saugus 60 --Jimmy Goffredo scored 31 points to lead Crescenta Valley (9-2) at Saugus. Marc Holmquist scored 25 points for Saugus (5-6).

Joshua Springs 75, Baptist Christian (Hemet) 72 --Nathan Rynning scored 21 points and Isiah Haggrman scored 22 for Joshua Springs (5-2). Matt Acton scored 31 for Baptist Christian (4-5).

Loyola 90, Mayfair 74 --Omar Wilkes scored 31 points including seven three-pointers, to help Loyola defeat Mayfair, 90-74 Friday in a nonleague game at Loyola. Wilkes, converted 12 of 18 shots for the Cubs (9-0).  Loyola's 6-7 center Chris Rucker had 11 of rebounds and  22 points. Matt McCraw led Mayfair (5-4) with 20 points. Vincent Oliver added 13 points for Loyola.

Lynwood 71, Compton 67 (OT)-- Junior guard Daniel McCall scored 27 points and junior guard Daniel Jones had eight as the Knights (3-4) defeated the visiting Tarbabes in overtime.  McCall, who also had five assists, made three free frows with three seconds left in regulation to force overtime. Junior guard Travonne Edwards led Compton with 19 points.

Montebello 69, Cantwell Sacred Heart 54-- The teams were tied 14-14 after the first quarter, but an Ian Parks dunk and a pair of 3-pointers by Mike Gonzalez staked the Oilers to a 35-19 lead. Parks finished with a game-high 17 points; Gonzalez had 14.  Cantwell went a full-court press in the second half that sped up the tempo to its liking. The Cardinals trimmed the deficit to 11 points in the fourth quarter, but a missed layup and a basket the other way sealed their fate. Matt Perez scored 14 points to lead Cantwell, which had Barry Cox contribute with 12 points and six assists.

Pomona 51, Chino 44--Odell Howard led Pomona (8-4) with 23 points and 15 rebounds. Pomona will play against Chaffey at 7 p.m. on Dec. 26 in the Covina Tournament.

Carlsbad 91, Rancho Buena Vista 67-- Leading by three points early in the second quarter, Rancho Buena Vista High boys basketball coach Terry Miller had a bad feeling.  The Longhorns connected on nine 3-pointers Friday, but it wasn't nearly enough as Carlsbad matched that total and beat RBV on the boards, racing to a 91-67 win in the semifinals of the tournament.

Iolani (Hawaii) Tournament

Results, brackets, stats, and more in-depth reports are available from the official tournament website (click the link above).

Fairfax 80, Clovis West 64-- [Report fromBy: Susan R. Shan, Sports Editor and All-Tournament Team Committee Staff   Updated: December 21, 2001] Fairfax Uses Height To Dominate Clovis West 80-64:   The Lions ran the score to an 8-point lead at 9-1 in the first two minutes of play and never looked back. Fairfax, led by future UCLA student Evan Burns, performed brilliantly. Their players average a height of 6’4 while Clovis West averages a height of 6’2. That extra two inches can make a great deal of difference, especially when Evan Burns stands three inches taller than Golden Eagles guard Nick Debban at 6’8 and point guard Kevin Bell’s 5’11 height allows him to move extremely quickly while darting between defenders.  Clovis West never made any serious threats to Fairfax’s lead, although they were able to cut it down to 9 points intermittently throughout the game. Jason Gilzene’s jumper with 3:55 left in the first quarter put Fairfax up 18-5 and Evan Burns’s free throw with 0:54 left in the first quarter propelled the Lions to a 17-point lead at 27-10. The Lions continued their domination throughout the game, but it looked as if the Golden Eagles might have a chance to come back with 3:21 left in the third quarter. The Lions were only trailing by 9 when Evan Burns exited the game with a wrist injury that left him lying on the court immobile for several minutes. Trent Thompson’s 3-pointer with 2:59 remaining cut the lead down to 8 at 56-48, but Clovis West was unable to move any closer.  The Lions have made an impressive return after last night’s exhausting game against the Iolani Raiders. Evan Burns plays the same style that has made current University of Kentucky star and Dominguez High School graduate, Tayshaun Prince, so successful. Prince, a preseason All-American and Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, is extremely versatile. Prince is 6’9 while Evans is 6’8. Both are post player and use their long arms to rebound and steal. However, they are also able to hit the 3 consistently, as seen by Burns’s 3-pointer today. Both have amazing ball-handling abilities for tall men and dribble and slash to the basket. Prince is arguably the best collegiate player in the country and is a highly touted NBA player. Burns has the potential to match Prince’s success and perhaps surpass him. Burns finished tonight’s game against Clovis West with 22 points.  Another impressive figure for Fairfax has been Joshua Shipp. Shipp’s brother, Joseph, is currently playing for Pepperdine University. Shipp’s sensational guard skills model after his brother’s. Shipp is able to shoot the 3-pointer (two today) and drive to the basket. His play of the day came when he slashed to the basket, stutter-stepping into a turnaround layup, quite rare these days.  Clovis West also has some impressive players of their own. Nick Debban has consistently played well scoring 17, 29, and 24 in his three games here at the Classic. Tyrese McDaniel and Tyson Parker have also contributed greatly with McDaniel scoring 20, 18, and 4 and Parker scoring 13, 14, and 25. All three have been offensive threats and have been important pieces to Clovis West’s success.   Fairfax will attempt to take care of business tomorrow against the Montrose Mustangs, who squeaked by Garfield earlier tonight. The Mustangs are here in Hawaii for the third year in a row, still looking for their first Iolani Classic title. They lost to Dominguez 56-37 in 1999 for the semifinal game and were upset by the Northwestern Bulls 50-48 (OT) in the championship game. The Mustangs are out for blood and coach Stu Vetter would love nothing better than to place another Iolani Classic trophy on his case. As for the Clovis West Golden Eagles, they will play the Garfield Bulldogs for third place. Garfield features Brandoy Roy and Marcelus Kemp, both superb athletes whom can take over a game. Once again, the Iolani Classic will present “classic” games on championship day.

La Canada Tournament

Championship Semifinals

Bishop Montgomery 54, La Canada 47 --Bishop Montgomery held La Canada to one field goal in the last four minutes to seal the semifinal victory in the La Canada tournament. Fred Washington had 19 points to lead the Knights (6-2).  The Spartans connected on just four of 25 three-point attempts and couldn't convert on a number of critical second-half possessions as they fell, 54-47, in the semifinals of the 11th annual La Canada Holiday Classic.  Bishop Montgomery (6-2) advanced to the tournament's championship game for the fourth consecutive year and will meet -- for the third straight time -- Muir (10-0), a 68-54 winner against Moorpark in the other semifinal, at 7:30 tonight at La Canada High. The Knights -- who have advanced to six tournament finals in the past seven years -- defeated the Spartans, 70-45, in last year's semifinal, but Hofman's squad wouldn't go as quietly the second time around. La Canada (7-2) -- which hosts Moorpark (6-3) for the second straight year in the 6 p.m. third-place game -- trailed, 41-40, with 6:31 left, but made just three field goals the rest of the way.   The Spartans had 10 possessions in the third and fourth quarters when they could have tied the game or taken the lead, but those offensive sequences resulted in eight missed shots -- including six three-pointers -- and two turnovers. Robbie Neyland led La Canada with 16 points, but connected on just four of 12 three-pointers. Billy Hofman had 10 points and four assists, and Mark Moore added nine points and a game-high 13 rebounds for the Spartans. Fred Washington paced three Knights in double figures with 19 points and eight rebounds. La Canada's loss to Bishop Montgomery was a tough one, especially because the Spartans had multiple chances to put themselves in a position to win. In the second half, La Canada (7-2) had 10 possessions in which it could have tied the game or taken the lead, but ice-cold perimeter-shooting ultimately cost the team. Usual sharp-shooters Billy Hofman and Robbie Neyland were a combined 4-of-19 from behind the three-point arc. As a team, the Spartans finished 4-of-25 from beyond the arc. Neyland finished with a team-high 16 points and Hofman had 10, but it was not enough to overcome a game-high 19 from Knights' standout Fred Washington.  Bishop Mont. 17 15 9 13 -- 54 La Canada 14 14 10 9 -- 47 BISHOP MONTGOMERY -- F. Washington 19 and 8 rebounds, Lee 12, Peace 11, M. Washington 8, Williams 4 and 8 rebounds. Three-pointers: M. Washington 2, Peace. LA CANADA -- Neyland 16, Hofman 10 and 4 assists, Moore 9 and 13 rebounds, Van Valer 7, Gaudino 3 and 10 rebounds, Kim 2. Three-pointers: Neyland 4

Muir 68, Moorpark 54 --Seth Davis scored 21 points to lead Muir. Keith Lawrence scored 17 points for Moorpark (6-3). For the third consecutive season, the Muir High School boys basketball team will face highly touted Bishop Montgomery in the championship game of the La Canada Flintridge Holiday Classic. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 tonight.  The Mustangs fought off a scrappy Moorpark team for a 68-54 victory in the first of two semifinals at La Canada High on Friday night. In the second game, Bishop Montgomery took advantage of poor outside shooting by the host Spartans and held on down the stretch for a 54-47 victory.  Muir, which improved to 10-0, was led by senior forward Seth Davis. As 6-foot-11 center Ryan Hollins was consistently doubled-teamed by the Musketeers, Davis stepped up and finished with team highs in points (17) and rebounds (11).  Hollins scored nine points, including a spectacular alley-oop from senior guard Chris Dickson to open the fourth quarter, but he also got into foul trouble early. With the Moorpark defense focusing heavily on Hollins and Davis, Muir's supporting cast was opportunistic. Dickson and sophomore guard Patrick Fuller matched Hollins with nine points apiece and Jamaal Hall and Anthony Jackson each scored eight as part of an extremely balanced offensive attack. Senior guard Richard Bautista came off the bench to add four points and five assists. He also was strong on defense.  In 1999, the Mustangs defeated Bishop Montgomery, 64-55, in the tournament championship. They lost to the Knights in overtime last December, 62-58. Tonight should be a close contest, as well. Moorpark (54) -- Lawrence 17, Fortman 7, Willis 2, Adibzadeh 9, Nystrom 15, Matson 2, Sharpe 2. Muir (68) -- Dickson 9, Fuller 9, Jackson 8, Hollins 7, Hall 8, Thomas 2, Davis 21, Bautista 2.  Moorpark 9 14 15 16--54  Muir 20 18 9 19--68 3-Point goals -- Moorpark (Lawrence, Adibzadeh, Nystrom 2). Fouled out -- None. Rebounds -- Moorpark (Lipka 9). Assists -- Moorpark (Ceja 2). Total fouls -- Moorpark 17, Muir 20. Records: Moorpark 6-3, Muir 10-0.

Championship Quarterfinals
Upper Half of Bracket

Uniontown (PA) 62, Green Valley (Henderson, Nev) 56-- For the second consecutive night, Green Valley's boys basketball team dug itself a big hole early, falling behind by 12 points in the first half.  This time, however, the Gators couldn't dig themselves out, as visiting Uniontown (Pa.) won 62-56 in the quarterfinals of the Millennium Cup at the Powerade Holiday Prep Classic on Friday at Green Valley High.  Turnovers were the key again, as the Gators finished with 30 for the game. Green Valley turned the ball over 31 times Thursday.  The Gators turned the ball over 14 times on their first 22 possessions, allowing the Red Raiders to take a 22-10 lead.  Then, as quickly as the turnovers came, Green Valley's offense tightened up, and the Gators had just two miscues the rest of the half, taking a 37-36 lead at the break.  While the Gators weren't quite as erratic as they had been, the team struggled handling the ball again early in the second half, turning it over six times in the first five minutes as Uniontown took the lead for good.  Green Valley pulled within two points twice in the final 10 minutes, the last time on a Mitch Platt bucket with 1:48 to play. That made the score 56-54, and a Red Raider turnover gave the Gators the ball again.  Platt was fouled and went to the free-throw line with a chance to tie, but he missed the front end of the one-and-one.   Uniontown's Terrance Vaughns then made all six of his free throws in the final minute to secure the victory. The Gators were able to take advantage of their size inside, as the 6-foot-9-inch Platt finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds, and 6-5 Ron Dunlap had 15 points and 17 rebounds. Uniontown's tallest starter was 6-2.   Jonathan Osborne led Green Valley with 16 points.  Vaughns led the Red Raiders with 19, and Dierre Jenkins added 15.  Green Valley drops into the consolation bracket with the loss, and will play Bonner Academy (N.C.) at 9:25 a.m. today at Green Valley. 

Bishop Gorman 70, Bonner Academy (N.C.) 65 (OT) -- At Green Valley, the Gaels hit 8 of 10 free throws in overtime to defeat the Hoyas and advance to the Millennium Cup semifinals.  Gorman's Brandon Knott made five free throws in overtime, including two with 3.1 seconds left to seal the victory. C.J. Watson led the Gaels with 35 points.

Mission Prep 53, Santa Barbara 50 --Sophomore guard Taylor Rochestie nearly carried the Dons with a 25 point-performance in a consolation game against the host school of the Mission Prep Tournament at Cal Poly SLO. Losing its third straight tournament game against tough competition, Santa Barbara (5-6) will play for 15th place out of 16 schools against Canyon of Anaheim today. Rochestie, hitting 5-of-10 3-pointers, scored 20 of his 25 in the second half as the Dons bench had to be tapped to fill in for injured and fouled-out players. Starting point guard Dante DeRose was lost on the first play of the game when he was hit in the mouth; he required 10 stitches. Dante Bogan also got hit in the face in the fourth quarter, suffering a bloody nose, and was forced to leave the game. After scoring 10 first-half points, the Dons' Santiago Aguirre hit the first basket of the second half and then fouled out shortly after.  But Santa Barbara still had a shot when Rochestie missed a jumped with 10 seconds left and his team down by 1. Preston Maloney came up with the offensive rebound and was decked by a defender trying to shoot. Maloney then was whistled for a foul when he pushed the Mission Prep player who knocked him over. Free throws from that foul accounted for the three-point margin.  Rochestie also had five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

San Diego Kiwanis Tournament

Championship Semifinals

Corona Centennial (CIF-SS)  82, San Diego (San Diego) 65-- J.R. Reese scored a career-high 33 points, including seven three-pointers, for Centennial (8-0). After a first quarter 16-16 tie, Centennial outscored San Diego 22-4 in the third and held on for the win. Centennial advances to the San Diego County Kiwanis Tournament final against Torrey Pines today at 7:30 p.m. at Serra High.

Torrey Pines (San Diego) 64, Escondido (San Diego) 56-- Escondido (5-3) led Torrey Pines (8-0) most of the way. With sophomore Lorenzo Keeler scoring 23 points, the Cougars led by as many as 10 points midway through the third quarter and were still on top 56-52 with just over two minutes to play. But they  wouldn't score again.   Torrey Pines center Rod Benson, a 6-foot-9 senior, stepped up the final quarter to join Josh Kramer as the Falcons' leading scorers with 21 points each. Benson collected 13 points and gathered seven of his game-high 15 rebounds in the fourth quarter. Benson's tip tied the game 56-56 with 1:55 remaining. By converting all six free-throw attempts down the stretch and playing tough man-to-man defense, the Falcons refused to let Escondido back into the game. The game was moved from an 8:15 start at Mira Mesa High to a 5:30 start at La Costa Canyon. Tournament officials said the change was an attempt to lessen any chance of further trouble between teams and spectators. As a result only a small crowd was on hand at the start of the game. Torrey Pines 16 11 13 24 -- 64 Escondido 16 14 15 11 -- 56 Torrey Pines (8-0) -- Kramer 21, Neff 2, Fogel 9, Brull 11, Benson 21.   Escondido (5-3) -- Bell 9, L. Keeler 23, G. Keeler 3, Burgess 2, J.

Shafter (Central Section) Kiwanis Shootout

Championship Semifinals

Shafter 53, Arvin 42--Mike Watts led a balanced scoring attack with 12 points and eight rebounds, including two baskets during a key fourth quarter run, as Shafter pulled away for a 53-42 victory. With the victory, the Generals improved to 8-2, while the Bears dropped to 2-7. Arvin meets Liberty in the third-place game at 3 p.m.  Tied 24-24 early in the third quarter, Shafter started to pull away. Watts, who had just two points in the first half, ignited a 13-6 run with a 15-foot jumper and capped the rally with a runner in the lane with 10 seconds left in the third that gave the Generals a 37-30 lead.  Shafter received 11 points from Fabian Jimenez and Ricky Ishida added 10. The Generals also received two big baskets on putbacks from Ryan Watts and started a 9-0 run in the fourth quarter that gave Shafter a 48-32 lead with 3:58 to play. But just when the Generals looked to have put the game away, Arvin struck back with six straight points, thanks to a 3-pointer by Jaime Espinoza and a basket and a free throw by Albert Rivas. Espinoza (14 points, two 3-pointers) and Rivas (five points, eight rebounds) helped keep the Bears close all night, but Shafter countered with five straight points to put the game out of reach.

Wasco 62, Liberty 41 --Wasco (9-1) used a 20-5 fourth-quarter run to put away Liberty, 62-41. Sophomore center Kyle Krause led the way for the Tigers with 20 points, eight rebounds and three blocks, and senior forward Zach Martin added 18 points and seven rebounds. He had 14 points in the second half. Wasco led 16-10 at the end of the first quarter, before the Patriots battled back into the game behind tough, pressure defense and a patient offense.  Brian Harper, who finished with a team-high 15 points, sank three of his four 3-pointers in the first half. His second shot from beyond the arc gave Liberty a 20-19 lead with 2:35 to play in the half.  But after four lead changes and four ties in the second and third quarter, The Tigers began to take control on the inside. Krause and Martin combined for 17 of their team's 21 points in the third quarter to help Wasco to a 42-35 lead.  Wasco continued its dominance in the fourth, and eventually built a 59-38 lead on a three-point play by Martin with 2:31 to play.
