CIF Game Recaps: Results & Details From
Tournaments Friday, 12/28/01--(Dec. 30, 2001)

We were out and gone to various tournaments all week, and so we will be posting recaps of the week, and some special summaries of the larger tournaments.  This is a late recap of what occurred this past Friday, specifcally the games that were played at various tournaments all over SoCal and elsewhere on Friday , December 28, 2001.  There were no league games played, so we have only tournament results to report.  Most of the scores and details from the action that took place is shown below, but if we're missing a score, it's either because no one sent it to us, or it wasn't reported by the local papers (the ones which happened to be available at the time) or on the various newspapers' websites.   Scores and details have been compiled from various sources including other websites (e.g., official tournament websites) and media sources.  If you have details, or a box score from a game that's not shown below, e-mail it to us.

Garces (Bakersfield) Tournament

Bakersfield Garces
Pool Play

Garces Memorial (Bakersfield) 64, Bakersfield Liberty 29 -- Although just midway through its season, the Liberty boys basketball team has already seen enough of Garces. On the heels of a 57-point loss to Garces in the South Sequoia League opener for both teams two weeks ago, the Patriots met the Rams in the third night of the Garces Holiday Hoops Challenge Friday night. It wasn't pretty. Neither team played its best game, but even on an off night Garces was overpowering, posting a 64-29 victory.   Garces (13-3), the only undefeated team in the round-robin tournament, squares off with rival parochial school San Joaquin Memorial (7-5) of Fresno at 7 o'clock tonight in the final round of the seven-team tournament.  If Memorial can defeat the Rams, and El Segundo (11-2) can get past Shafter tonight, all three teams would be 3-1 in tournament play. In case of a tie, the championship would be awarded to the team that gave up the least amount of points in the tournament.  Despite the lopsided victory against the Patriots, the Rams were slow to get started. Neither team scored in the first two minutes. Anthony Esparza, who led Garces with a game-high 13 points, finally got things going with a steal and driving layin, igniting an 8-0 run. After Liberty (4-11) scored on a short jump shot by Scott Wells, Esparza followed with a 3-pointer, and 7-foot sophomore Robert Swift scored on a follow-up bank shot to give the Rams a 13-2 lead.  The Rams continued the onslaught in the second quarter, scoring the first 13 points of the period and led 29-6 on a basket by 6-foot-4 forward Derrick Norris. Norris finished with 10 points and was the only other Garces player in double figures. Eleven Rams scored.   Zak Bolton countered Garces' run with a pull-up jumper, but the Rams closed the half with a 12-3 run and lead 41-11 at the intermission.  Along the way to its 30-plus point advantage, the Rams committed several turnovers, including an errant pass off the backboard, an ill-fated behind-the-back pass and a lob attempt that ricocheted off the rim.  Despite Garces' temporary lapses, the Patriots were unable to capitalize. Liberty struggled offensively, managing just nine field goals in the game. Leading scorer junior Brian Stanley was held scoreless for the first three quarters and finished with just five points.

Kerman 63, Shafter 61 --Jordan DeLuna scored 18 points and James Sanders added 14 to lead the Lions past the Generals (10-4). Trailing by 10 points at the end of the third quarter, Shafter pulled to within two behind the strong play of senior Ricky Ishida, who finished with a team-high 18 points.

San Joaquin (Fresno) Memorial 60, Kerman 49--Senior Antonio Lawrence scored 22 points and junior Chris Joseph added 13 to lead the Panthers (7-5). Kerman (7-7) led 18-13 at the end of the first quarter and trailed by just five points late in the final period. Junior Mike Champion led the Lions with 17 points, while Paul Stidham chipped in 16 points for the Lions.

El Segundo 58, St. Joseph 54--Mike McCullough was 4-for-4 from the free throw line in the closing minutes to lift El Segundo. McCullough finished with 10 points for the Eagles (11-2). Jeramie Hopson led all scorers with 20 points, including four 3-point baskets. Tino Gomez added 11 points and Dashawn Strong finished with 10 points and nine rebounds.  Joe Tilley scored 13 points and Stewart Kussler added 12 for St. Joseph Santa Maria (5-8), but it wasn't enough for the Knights.

Modesto Christian Holiday Classic

Modesto Christian
Gold Bracket
Quarterfinals

Oakland Tech 93, Berkeley St. Mary’s 77--It was billed as a Northern California showdown between No. 2 Oakland Tech and No. 5 Saint Mary's of Berkeley at the Modesto Holiday Hoop Classic at Cal State Stanislaus' Warrior Arena.   For three quarters Friday, the game lived up to its billing.  Then Leon Powe took over. Powe, Tech's 6-foot-8 junior, had 15 of his game-high 36 points as Tech held Saint Mary's to 17 points in the final quarter of its 93-77 quarterfinal victory in the tournament's gold bracket.  Tech will face another powerhouse in today's semifinal at 3 p.m in Long Beach Poly, which defeated Kennedy of Sacramento 76-45. Today's semifinal winners meet in the championship game tonight at 8. The semifinals and finals will be played at Warrior Arena.  Tech used a late second-quarter run to close the half with a 12-point lead, but St. Mary's opened the third with a 12-2 run of its own to get back in the game. Tech coach Hodari McGavock then called a timeout and made a defensive adjustment, switching from man-to-man to zone, and Tech took off.  Tech point guard Armondo Surratt nailed a pair of second-half free throws as part of his 27 points. But it was his ability to get the ball into Powe at the right spot that put Tech over the top. Surratt continually found Powe, including twice for slam dunks, in the second half.

Compton Centennial 73, Sylmar 69--Senior guard Frank Robinson nailed a 3-pointer with 20 seconds remaining to bring Sylmar within five, but Centennial of Compton put the game away at the free-throw line, earning a spot in the semifinals.  Jeff Morse had 24 points for Sylmar.

Long Beach Poly 76, Sacramento Kennedy 45--Kennedy hung with Long Beach Poly -- ranked No. 5 in the state -- for a quarter, trailing just 13-12 after a period. But Poly's size and athleticism eventually got the best of Kennedy as the Jackrabbits outscored Kennedy 24-7 in the third quarter. Kyle Kelly scored eight of Kennedy's 12 first-quarter points, but it wasn't enough. Reggie Butler had 19 points for Long Beach Poly. The Jackrabbits turned on the heat in the third quarter with a 24-7 run to pull away from Sacramento's Kennedy to advance to the semifinal round of the tournament in Modesto.  Poly (10-1) got 18 points from Reggie Butler and 16 points apiece from Bobby Jones (9 rebounds) and Carlos Rivers (7 assists) in the victory. Mike Roche had 10 points.  Poly will oppose Oakland Tech in a 3 p.m. semifinal game, which is preceded by Compton Centennial's 1 p.m. semifinal game against Modesto Christian. The winners will meet in the title game at 8 p.m. 

Modesto Christian 72, Fresno Edison 41--It was a night of good news and bad news for the Modesto Christian High boys basketball team at the Modesto Holiday Hoop Classic on Friday. The good news was that MC rolled into the semifinals of the tournament with a dominating performance in a 72-41 victory over Edison of Fresno at Cal State Stanislaus in the quarterfinals of the gold bracket.  The bad news came only minutes into the game when starting point guard Brian Donham broke his left foot when he landed on an Edison player's foot. Donham told trainers and teammates while he was being attended to that it "popped" immediately. He was in terrible pain as he was helped out of the arena to seek further medical attention. Donham will have surgery, which will include placing screws into the foot. It is not known if he will be able to return this season.  MC (12-3) moves on to the semifinal at Stanislaus' Warrior Arena against Centennial of Compton, which defeated Sylmar 73-69 earlier Friday.   Long Beach Poly and Oakland Tech square off in the other semifinal at 3 p.m. The winners will move on to tonight's final.  The Crusaders were able to recover and played well without their point guard. James Noel led MC offensively, scoring 26 points, while David Paris, Liam Hughes and Noel continually rejected the penetrating play of the Tigers from the paint.  The second half belonged to the Crusaders, who outscored the Tigers 40-22. MC's presence inside forced Edison out of its slashing style and into an outside offense. The Crusaders owned the boards and Edison had no chance to recover when it was getting only one-shot possessions.  Bobby Cole II had 11 points, and the senior assumed the ballhandling duties when Donham went down, sparking the Crusaders' transition game.  Noel benefited from the attention that Paris received. As Paris was being double-teamed, Noel found openings on the other side of the court, and converted those into easy layups. Edison --Jeff Fulmer 7, Tyler Wagner 2, Jerome Ireland 2, Alfred George 7, Lorenzo Sims 6, Robert Rose 4, John Glasser 2, Varon Mitchell 7, Kevin Tatum 4. Totals: 14 11-17 41.  Modesto Chr (12-3) -- Liam Hughes 6, J.R. Mark 1, Brian Donham 2, James Noel 26, Andre Glenn 5, Austin Paris 5, Bobby Cole II 11, Marshall Meyers 2, David Paris 14.

Santa Barbara 47, Easy (Utah) 45 --Dante Bogan scored 10 points for Santa Barbara (8-7).The Dons let their defense lead the way again Friday night as they beat Utah's East High 47-45 to reach the championship final of their own Holiday Classic at Santa Barbara High.  Dante DeRose drove inside and dished off to Michael Fisher for the go-ahead layup with 22 seconds remaining and Dante Bogan and Santiago Aguirre combined for a game-clinching steal with 1.7 seconds left.  Santa Barbara, 8-6, will play defending tournament and Washington state champion Lincoln at 8:30 p.m. Oregon State-bound center Justin Holt scored 22 points as Lincoln improved to 9-0 with a 54-46 win over Oxnard in the other semifinal.   The game was close from the start. Santa Barbara led 10-8 after the first quarter on a rebound basket by Coury Clemens and 22-21 at the half on a 3-pointer by Taylor Rochestie. The Dons jumped to a 34-23 lead in the third period as Bogan hit a 3-pointer and Clemens and Fisher scored on inside shots. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Bogan made it 42-32 but East rallied behind Jesse Scott and Troy Randall to cut the lead to 44-40. A 3-pointer by Anthony Sykes and a rebound basket by Scott put East ahead 45-44 with 1:16 to play.  On the Dons' ensuing possession, Fisher scrapped for an offensive rebound to help set up the final, winning sequence. Bogan, named earlier in the week to the all-state football team, forced a bad pass by East which eventually resulted in Aguirre's steal. He added a free throw with 1.7 seconds to play and picked off East's desperation toss at the buzzer.  Bogan finished with three 3-pointers and 10 points while DeRose had 12 points, including 5-for-5 shooting at the free throw line.  EAST -- Saleem 3, Lowe 16, Sykes 4, Mailou 1, Stott 9, Randall 14.

Dos Pueblos 51, Santa Monica 44--Dos Pueblos beat Santa Monica 51-44 but lost star guard Steve Graybill to a season-ending wrist injury. Jonathan Pickert scored 18 points, including four 3-pointers and four straight free throws in the final 30 seconds as Dos Pueblos improved to 10-3.  The Chargers learned before the game that Graybill, the county and Channel League MVP last year, will be lost for the season with a left-wrist injury. He is scheduled for surgery on Friday.  Graybill played despite the advice of doctors and scored 27 points on Wednesday but his wrist felt terrible the next morning and he struggled with it the following night. On subsequent examination, he said, it would not be possible to play through the injury. "He was the best player in the county last year so we're going to need other guys to step up," said Pickert. "We're disappointed for him -- it's his senior year -- but we just hope he can get healthy."  Freshman Phil Friessen picked up some of the slack against Santa Monica by scoring 10 points and grabbing eight rebounds. He also had a key steal and a free throw in the final minute.  Charger coach Phil Sherman also cited the effort of Jay Staggs, who had a team-high eight rebounds -- most in the final minutes. Staggs was a star receiver on the football team that reached the CIF final and is just starting to round into his basketball form.  Ryan Glick added 10 points.   Dos Pueblos plays Pasadena for fifth.

The Royals struggled in the second quarter, falling behind 34-24, and could never quite recover.  Dino Wilburn, a 6-4 senior guard, hit four 3-pointers and scored 32 points for Pasadena. McKiernan had five rebounds to go with his 21 points (he has 63 for the tournament) while Asher Kupperman added 10 points and five assists.  A rebound basket by Kupperman with 58 seconds to play cut Pasadena's lead to 58-55 but Wilburn hit four straight free throws to ice the victory.  The Royals, 7-6, play Santa Monica for seventh place.

Quarterfinals

Mission Prep 63, Buckley 58--In a game with an 8:00 a.m. tip-off time, last year's tournament champion Buckley, took on the tournament's toughest team, Mission Prep, and Mission, behind a 34 point effort from Gerald Purify, pulled off the win, stopping the Buckley comeback drive which saw the Griffins outscore Mission 26-19 in the fourth quarter.  The game's momentum switched in the final seconds with two controversial calls, both of which favored Mission Prep.  With less than a minute remaining and Buckley within 3, Mission's Souleymane Traore missed the second of two free-throws, giving Buckley the rebound,  but the referee called the play off because one of the Buckley players allegedly "talked" at the line while Traore was shooting. The call allowed Traore to take the shot again,  and the second time he made it, giving Mission a crucial four point lead.  On the next possession, as Buckley brought the ball up the floor, a Mission defender deflected Buckley point guard David Gale's dribble, kicking the ball into the backcourt. Buckley recovered the ensuing loose ball but the referee ruled that it was an over and back, a call which defied the laws of physics.  Buckley was forced to foul to stop the clock and Mission was able to hold onto the lead, extending it by one more point at the line for the final margin of victory.   At the half, Buckly trailed 29-21, and the gap widened as Mission outscored the Griffins 15-10 in the third, to extend the lead at the end of the quarter to 44-32. The end of the third quarter marked the start of the Griffin comeback attempt as Gale hit a half-court shot at the buzzer.  Gale finished with 15 points, 11 assists and 4 steals, Alex Marshall had 17 and 6 rebounds, and Baron Abdul-Mansour finished with 12, Nick Brar 4, Tristan Seisa 10.  For Mission, Purify finished with 34, Traore had 8, Joey Craigue had 9 (3 three-pointer), Scruggs 4, Botsch 2, and Hassler 2.  Mission -- 20  9  15  19--63;  Buckley 15  7  10  26--58.

National Division Bracket

Semifinals

Carlsbad 57, Santa Margarita 50 --Brandon Rohe had 20 points, but Santa Margarita (12-1) suffered its first loss of the season. Derek Stockalper led Carlsbad with a game-high 26 points.  Off an inbounds play, Carlsbad's Joe McDonough who had not scored in the game previously, scored a field goal-- the first by the Lancers in more than 14 minutes -- that led to a 57-50 victory over Orange County's previously unbeaten Santa Margarita High in the National Prep Classic semifinals at Torrey Pines High. With the victory, Carlsbad faces Torrey Pines, a 74-67 semifinal winner over Los Angeles Loyola, in the first-ever all-San Diego National Division championship. McDonough's score came with 1:08 remaining and the game tied at 48-48. Neither team had scored a field goal in the quarter and the Lancers (12-2) hadn't found the range from the field since Greg Nelson's three-pointer in the first minute of the second half.  The tense finish was in direct contrast to an almost perfect first half by the Lancers, who built a 35-22 lead midway through the second quarter before the Eagles rallied late to close to 42-35 by the break. Stockalper, who finished with a game-high 26 points, and Nelson, who scored 22, led the way in what looked like the midway point of a high-scoring contest.  But Santa Margarita, led by Brandon Rohe's four three-point field goals, limited Carlsbad to just Nelson's three-pointer in the third quarter to assume a 46-45 lead.  Just as it appeared the Eagles had the upper hand, Carlsbad's defense matched Santa Margarita's intensity as the teams traded free throws until the crucial inbounds play that led to McDonough's layup.  Santa Clara-bound guard Brandon Rohe scored 20 points, including four three-pointers, but the top-ranked Eagles (12-1) fell to San Diego's second-ranked squad (11-2) in the semifinals of the national division at Torrey Pines High.  Santa Marg. 14 21 11  4 -- 50 Carlsbad 24 18  3 12 -- 57  Santa Margarita -- Rohe 20, Collins 11, Smith 8, Toch 4, Mathews 2, Quisano 2, TySmith 3; Carlsbad -- Stockalper 26, Nelson 22, Martinez 6, McDonnough 2, Brandow 1.
