Game Scores & Details From Day One
12/2/02, Monday--(Dec. 3, 2002)

Yesterday marked the opening of the CIF-SS official basketball season, so it's fitting that we once again report scores, gathered from various local newspapers, coaches e-mails, and our friends in the community who go out and observe these games and are kind enough to send us the scores, stats and more.  If you want up to the minute scores the day of a game, you are certainly welcome to check with us on the SoCalHoops message forums, but we would also highly recommend you visit the Los Angeles Times' "Preps" section online scores.  The Times publishes and posts scores and limited detail (usually high scorers only) almost within minutes of a score being reported at their internet site which was re-launched last season.  They've got the manpower for such a task, and we're happy to recommend it to anyone with a serious (or even passing) interest in finding a score.   Seriously, this is a great service performed by the Times, which as we all know has plenty to atone for given what they've otherwise done to their prep print page in their various editions of the newspaper, especially when it comes to reporting during the basketball season.    If you have scores to report and want to see them posted within minutes, simply call the Times at 1-800-LATIMES and dial in extension 77151. Of course, you can also submit scores and details to the Times by e-mail to, but it's much more reliable to actually call and speak with a live person to insure that the paper gets the details, and it's a lot handier to use a phone than a computer (unless you've got a laptop with a wireless connection).   We also want to suggest that anyone with scoring details contact the other great regional papers in their areas.  All of these various regional outlets provide scores, stats and details, and collectively, they're an invaluable resource if you're interested in a particular area within SoCal.  If you are in the Inland Empire the paper to contact is the Riverside Press-Enterprise at (909) 684-1200.  For Orange County,  call the OC Register at 714-796-7804.  And if you're in any other area, well, there are a plethora of papers to report scores and details to (e.g., Ventura County Star; Santa Barbara News-Press; LA Daily News for the SFV; LB Press-Telegram for the 710/605 corridor; Pasadena Star News; San Bernardino County Sun; Redlands Daily Facts; etc).   And lastly, keep sending them in to us at SoCalHoops by e-mail at We can't promise to post them as quickly as the LA Times will, but we'll get to them eventually, usually by the next day.

CIF-SS Non-League Game Scores For Monday, Dec. 2, 2002

The LA City Section has been playing "practice" games (that's the City's term for everything that is a non-league, officially sanctioned, game) for the past two weeks on a limited basis.  If you need a prior week's scores or details we suggest you check the LA Times Prep's section.

Grant 55, Monroe 54--Monroe, expected to be one of the area favorites, played without Brandon James (6'-7" So. F) or Dawin Whiten (6'-1" Jr. G).  James is recovering from a foot injury, while Whiten is currently awaiting a decision on his eligibility after transferring back to Monroe last spring from Cerritos.  Whiten's hearing is set for December 17 before the LA City Section's IAC.  The visiting Grant Lancers (1-0), who are also playing without Gino Riney (who is currently residing at a juvenile detention facility and not enrolled at Grant), took advantage of the absence of James and Whiten, and jumped out to a 27-25 halftime lead.  The Lancers were led by Jason Hill's 18 points, 12 of which came in the second half.  Duane Jones led Monroe with 13 points and Daniel Martinez added 12 for Monroe (0-1).
