CIF-SS Boys Division V-A Bracket:
Thursday 1st Round Game Results--(Feb. 21, 2003)

Most of the schools in this division are not able to play their games from sundown on Friday night until sundown on Saturday for religious reasons, and as a result,  there are only a few games which will actually take place at the regularly scheduled time in this division.    Some were rescheduled to earlier in the day on Friday before sundown, and a few are set for Saturday night, and a couple of games have even been scheduled for Monday, one day before the second round begins, thus requiring some teams to play back-to-back games, which is not an entirely bad thing when it comes to the playoffs (lulls and breaks can sometimes hurt more than they help).    Four of the first round games were played last night, Thursday, 2/20/03.   Here are the ones we know about from the Los Angeles Times:

Maricopa 79, San Fernando Valley Adventist 36--Jack McDonald had 24 points and Alex Alvarado added 19 for host Maricopa (20-5). Sean Lucerno had 16 points for San Fernando Valley Adventist (6-5).

Santa Maria Valley Christian 73, Netan Eli 43--Ricky Pacheco had 20 points and Nic Vanaman had 17 points and 10 rebounds for Valley Christian (11-10). Simon Doueck had 32 points for Netan Eli.

Tarbut V'Torah 79, Calvary Baptist 60--Steven Eghbali had 27 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and freshman Jamie Stopnitsky had 19 points and 10 assists for host and third-seeded Tarbut V'Torah (22-1). Calvary Baptist finished 11-14.

Desert Christian 44, Acaciawood Academy 36--details not available
