Game Scores and Details From
Saturday 12/16/00--(Dec. 20, 2000)

Better late than never. . . we're still catching up from this past weekend.  We'll also post the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday scores for games other than the Rim Rattler and the Las Vegas Holiday Prep Classic. . .the other league, non-league and tournament games (yes, there are a ton of other tournaments going on besides just the "high profile" ones).   We know that these scores and game details below are far from complete, but they're what we've managed to cobble together from what folks have sent us and from the data that's been published both in print and online from today's local papers.   We are missing some game details and we'll try to get them later tonight.  If you know the score or details of a game we've missed send it in to us either by e-mail or by posting it on the message board.

Southern Section League Games-- Saturday, 12/16/00

American League

Stoneridge Prep 107, Waverly 13-- Stoneridge Prep's James Williams scored 37 points, Nang 32, Shabameri 14, Shamansadi 10, Alon 8 and Richard Delgado 6.  Waverly's poor guys scored as follows:  Wiechmann 1, Strauss 2, Horsely 1, Govindarujan 3, Stern 6.  The box score is also pretty unbelievable:  Waverly: 0  0  6  7--13;  Stoneridge Prep--27   28  26  26--107.   We've seen Stoneridge, and it's not like they can pull their starters because as the box notes, there were only 6 guys on the bench for them.  Still, 107 to 13 is a bit . . . well, we'll let you draw your own conclusions. . . .

Condor League

Dunn 54, Villanova Prep 52-- no details available.  Dunn 7-0, 1-0;  VP 4-4, 1-1.

Southern Section Non-League Games--Saturday, 12/16/00

Beverly Hills 57, Faith Baptist 45--   Faith Baptist remains winless at 0-5 with the loss to Beverly, which was led by Tannler with 12 and Athalian with 11. 

Vasquez 58, Boron 57--Fatigued and short-handed, the Vasquez boys' basketball team gets a well-deserved break in the schedule before returning to action January 2. With several players sidelined and only five players available, the Mustangs played a standout defensive game Saturday in a 58-57 nonleague victory over Boron High. Despite the manpower shortage, Vasquez stayed out of foul trouble, with only one player, Darryl Perito, collecting as many as three fouls. Tony Uebelhardt scored 21 points and Tom Lewis and Rich Lopez each had 13 rebounds to lead the Mustangs, who improved to 2-4. The Mustangs' next game will be on January 2, a nonleague game at Rosamond.

Chatsworth Winter War On The Floor Tournament


Simi Valley 88, Edison Fresno 80 -- The Simi Pioneers struggled through the first half and faced a six-point deficit when center Dustin Villepigue fouled out with less than two minutes remaining in the game.  Fortunately for Simi Valley, the Pioneers found an unlikely hero in Ryan Bradshaw, who scored 11 points in two overtime periods to lead Simi Valley past Edison of Fresno 88-80 at Chatsworth High. Bradshaw hit a 3-pointer with 2:02 remaining in the second overtime to put the Pioneers (8-0) up for good. Four Simi Valley players scored in double figures. They nearly wrapped up the game in the first overtime, but Kevin Tatum hit a fall-away six-footer to tie the game with half a second remaining.  Villepigue scored 22 points and earned the tournament MVP award.

Third Place

Dorsey 64, Canoga Park 55--Cecil Brown's 28 points weren't enough for the losing Hunters (4-5) in the third-place game. Brown, on the way to all-tournament honors, scored 14 points in each half against the Dons' (8-1) trap, but no one else had much scoring success, and Dorsey built an eight-point halftime lead.   Canoga Park pulled to within six points with three minutes remaining on a Brown 3-pointer. But Dorsey outscored the Hunters 8-2 in the final two minutes.

Fifth Place

Chatsworth 86, Garfield 72--Shane Berry scored 32 points on his way to all-tournament honors as the Chancellors (6-1) earned fifth place. The hosts, which also beat Reseda earlier in the day, jumped out to a 10-point halftime lead that Garfield's Miguel Velez (29 points) trimmed to four points with a jumper midway through the third quarter. Berry and center Scott Johnston controlled the game in the fourth quarter Johnston finished with 18 points as Chatsworth built its largest lead at the finish.

Seventh Place

Reseda 70, El Camino Real 65--Reseda's Sergei Lepiachinski scored 34 points in the win for Reseda who played without Nashid Beard. Earlier in the day, Reseda also played a "makeup game" from Friday's mis-scheduling against Chatsworth, and despite losing 98-86, Lepiachinski scored 47 points in that game.  81 points in two games in one day might just be some sort of record in the Southern Section, but if it is we can't verify it.. . . Gotta go see this kid play. . .

Murrieta Valley Nighthawk Classic

Ontario 92, Fontana 84--The Jaguars twice rallied from big deficits Saturday night to put away Fontana, 92-84, and win the Nighthawk Classic at Murrieta Valley High School. It was an emotional win for the Jaguars, who not only had to overcome a good Steelers team, but also the loss of standout guard Marlon Mitchell and 54 personal foul calls by the referees. And after a tough stretch last week, when they dropped a relatively close game to Mater Dei, DeFabiis said the Jags made a pact not to lose again.  That pact, though, appeared in serious jeopardy when Mitchell, who averaged 29.5 points in four games this week, fouled out with seven minutes remaining and the Jaguars trailing 65-58. But Ontario slowly got back into it, and then took the lead in a late stretch run The Steelers led 81-76, when David Stepney scored inside to cut the lead to three with 1:35 remaining. Just seconds later, the Steelers turned over the ball and Cameron Munoz, who scored 16 in the fourth quarter, hit a game-tying 3-pointer with 1:27 left. Then the Steelers imploded. Trayvon Williams was called for his second technical in the game with 57 seconds remaining, apparently for throwing the ball after a turnover. Williams, like five other players, fouled out. But his technical proved costly, as Munoz hit two free throws and a subsequent layup with 40 seconds left to put Fontana in desperation foul mode. Williams was also hit with a technical foul in the third quarter for throwing an elbow. Until the frenzy of the final three minutes, it was a contest the Steelers figured to have well in hand. They began the game on a 12-0 run, and when the Jaguars fought back to tie 27-27 in the second quarter, the Steelers methodically built another lead. Fontana led 62-57 at the end of three quarters, and then expanded that lead to as much as 10 in the fourth. Mitchell fouling out may have been a blessing in disguise for the Jags. Munoz finished the game with 23 points. Off the bench, Stepney scored 17, including six points and six rebounds in the fourth quarter.

Fifth Place

Cathedral City 69, Arlington 66 --Gerald DeVance and Thomas Shewmake combined to score the final seven points of the game as the Lions (7-2) rallied in the Murrieta Valley tournament.  DeVance finished with 21 points and nine assists while Shewmake had 15 points and 13 rebounds. Shewmake scored 86 points and 68 rebounds for averages of 21.5 points and 17 rebounds in four games to earn all-tournament honors. Arlington led 66-62 late in the game before Shewmake scored four points and DeVance three to rally the Lions.

San Diego Tri-City Christmas Classic Tournament

St. Margaret's 78, Mission Hills Tri-City Christian 71 (OT)--Tournament MVP Kevin Krause, who finished with 25 points, hit a shot at the end of regulation to tie the score, and made seven of nine free throws in the overtime as St. Margaret's (6-4) won the title. Teammate Ed Ortega made four three-pointers and scored 17 points.

Santa Maria Valley Tournament

Cabrillo 79, Santa Maria VCA 67--Kevin Martin, who took over as head boys basketball coach at Cabrillo (3-7) three games ago, got his first win Saturday night. Brian McNease had 22 points, David Drake 15, Ericson Valdivia nine for the Conquistadores as they put away Valley Christian Academy in a Santa Maria Valley tourney consolation game.  Up 26-13 after one and 37-24 at the half, Cabrillo led 65-48 after a barnburner third quarter. By game's end, seven other Conquistadores had broken into the scorebook. Mike Christoferson scored 20, Josh Mason and Caleb Kirby had 15 each, Lance Carlon 14 for the Lions. Cabrillo next plays at the Santa Barbara tourney on Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Upland Tournament


Upland 64, Canyon Springs 62--Upland's Nevada-Reno signee Kirk Snyder scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half, but it was his last basket, a two-handed rebound slam dunk with only 2 seconds left, that gave the Highlanders a 64-62 victory over Canyon Springs (5-2) in the championship game of the Upland Classic. Snyder slammed home a missed layup attempt by teammate Sheldon Pace that gave his team a dramatic victory and earned him tournament MVP honors.  After Snyder had broken a 58-58 tie with two free throws, Canyon Springs' Jason Braxton went end to end for a layup to tie it up again. Braxton finished with 21 points. Pace then went coast-to-coast himself for another layup to put Upland back on top 62-60 with 32 seconds left. But Braxton again found his way to the basket and tied the score at 62, setting up Synder's heroics. Upland (8-1) led by as much as 11 in the first half, but could not put the Cougars away. Canyon Springs' Richard Cobbs scored 18 of his game-high 27 points in the first half, including the Cougar's first 13 points of the game.  The Highlanders led 18-15 at the end of the first quarter and extended it to a 28-17 lead, but the Cougars ended the half on a run and trailed only by four, 34-30, at halftime. Upland couldn't add to its lead in the third and entered the fourth with only a 46-42 lead.  Trailing 51-44 in the fourth, the Cougars went on an 11-2 run capped by a 3-pointer by Braxton to pull ahead for the first time, 55-52. Upland hit 7 of 10 free throws in the closing minutes to keep pace. Prentice Harris finished with 15 points for Upland and joined teammates Pace, Pruitt and Jason Harris on the all-tournament team. Braxton, Cobbs and Tron Smith made the team for Canyon Springs.  These teams will have a rematch on January 3rd at Canyon Springs.
