Game Scores & Details From Day Two
12/3/02, Tuesday--(Dec. 4, 2002)

It's only the second day of the season and already records are dropping like dead flies on horsesh.....well, something like that.  And indeed, some of these records are of very dubious distinction.   How's this one:  Stoneridge Prep, which previously set some sort of record by walloping a tiny little school (Bridges Academy) 148 to 12-or-something a year ago, did it again yesterday, by hammering poor little South Bay by a score of  151-5, and in the process two new CIF-SS records were set: Most points by a team in a game, and least points scored.  Now there's something to write home about, and we're certain that Michael Josephson and the Victory with Honor folks at the CIF are jumping for joy right now as they read the score....But hey, there's no rule against scoring, right? And basketball is, after all about one team scoring more points than the other, right?  Riiiiigggghht.......Anyway, a lot of exciting things happened, including Jordan Farmar of Taft scoring 54 points last night in 28 minutes....Once again, we've compiled scores and results from the usual sources and suspects. Here's what we know:

LA City Section Non-League Game Scores For Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2002

No games, other than as noted above in "Tournaments" were played yesterday by LA City Section teams against other LA City Section teams.

Lastly, as we noted yesterday, if you want up-to-the-minute scores the day of a game, we suggest you check with us on the SoCalHoops message forums or that 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.
