Garces Tournament


Garces 72, El Segundo 45--With 12 straight wins to open the season, No. 13 figured to be unlucky for Garces following a slow start Friday night against El Segundo. The Rams trailed by eight points at the end of the first quarter and appeared to be going nowhere fast.  But with the championship of the Garces Holiday Hoops Challenge on the line, Garces picked up the pace behind an inspired defensive effort and the hot shooting of sophomore forward Anthony Esparza. Esparza poured in a career-high 26 points, including five 3-pointers, and tenacious defense helped the Rams pull away for a convincing 72-45 victory.  Esparza was named to the all-tournament team, along with teammates Derrick Norris and Kyle Shiloh.  Down 30-26 early in the third quarter, the Rams (13-0) sped things up, reeling off 22 of the next 23 points, and led 48-31 on a dunk by 6-foot-10 freshman Robert Swift.  It was Swift's only field goal of the night, but he had a much bigger impact on defense where he blocked six shots and pulled down five boards in limited action. El Segundo (7-8) was led by 6-6 junior center Dashawn Strong, who scored his team's first 12 points. The Rams responded by double-teaming him and he managed just five more points the rest of the way.  Led by Keith Villalovos' seven points, Garces opened the second quarter with a 12-0 run and led 20-16 on a 3-pointer by Shiloh. El Segundo regained its composure and regained the lead with a 10-1 spurt of its own. Jeramie Hopson (14 points) had eight points during the run. Both Strong and Hopson were also named to the all-tournament team.  Trailing 28-26 at the half, the Rams outscored the Eagles 48-17 the rest of the way. Ten Garces players scored.

Redondo Union Seahawk Classic

Third Place

Leuzinger 70, Redondo Union 69--The Olympians (8-4) used a fullcourt press to force 28 Redondo turnovers and contained Dijon Thompson, one of the South Bay's top players. While Redondo boasts a front court with players at least 6-foot-7, Leuzinger does not have any players taller than 6-5. It did not help Redondo that point guard Keith Ellison was ineligible to play due to an ejection in a game Thursday night.   Leuzinger's defense forced turnovers, held Thompson to 4-for-12 shooting and wore down the Sea Hawks in the second half after trailing through the first three quarters of the game. It was the difference considering that Redondo outshot Leuzinger from the floor (44 percent to 40 percent), outrebounded the Olympians, 45-35, and had 10 points more at the free throw line.  Offensively, Leuzinger was led by Derrick Clark who scored all 19 of his team-high points in the second half, including two free throws to seal the game with six seconds left in regulation. Redondo led by 11 points at the half, but Leuzinger steadily chipped away at the lead. Lamont Smith's behind-the-back pass to Maurice Givens just before the third quarter ended cut Redondo's lead to three points. But Leuzinger's run did not stop there. The Olympians opened the fourth quarter with a 14-2 run that pushed them ahead, 62-53, with 4:36 left. Among the highlights of the run was forcing Redondo into a 10-second violation and scoring several times on fast breaks and solid passing.Redondo battled back to cut Leuzinger's lead to 66-64 when Wendell White tipped in a basket with 1:04 left. But nine seconds later, Redondo coach Jim Nielsen was called for a technical foul.  Despite the error on the bench, White resuscitated the Sea Hawks with a turnaround-fadeaway jumper from the baseline with 40 seconds left. Defensively, Redondo did not foul Leuzinger and actually prevented the Olympians from getting a shot off. Andrew Zahn blocked an attempt by Jonathan Smith and Evan Simovich recovered the ball, but was stripped by Clark. Simovich was forced to foul and Clark headed to the free throw line. Clark's two free throws could become a benchmark for the program's future in the Bay League. Last year, Leuzinger played in the Ocean League.

Pace then accounted for five of the next seven shots from the field, including two 3-pointers and a dunk. Jesse Pruitt opened the second quarter with his own 3, and two more free throws gave the Highlanders a 32-9 lead and sent Pacific into panic-mode. The Pirates missed nine field goals in the first quarter, and their standout - guard Donnell Jury - was 2-for-10 in the first-half.  The Pirates did hang around for a little while, and they even closed the gap to 38-28 with 6:20 remaining in the third quarter on a put-back basket by Jury, who finished with 20 points.  Snyder hit seven field goals and grabbing seven rebounds. Upland led 55-26 by the end of three quarters and the game was effectively over.  Upland had 16 assists to Pacific's seven, outrebounded Pacific 36-24, made 12 steals and forced 17 turnovers. Unlike their previous games in their first San Bernardino Kiwanis tournament, the Highlanders (13-1) were ready to play as early as halftime of the third-place game, when the entire team came out on the floor to go through warm-up drills.  Upland raced out to a 27-9 lead after one quarter and never let Pacific (9-4) get closer than 10 (36-26 in the first minute of the second half). Pacific made 3 of 12 shots in the opening period and went seven minutes and 21 seconds without making a field goal in the first half.

Ingerson also helped trigger the Dons' fourth quarter run with a couple of sharp assists to Chris Koester (14 points) and Putnam.

Pasadena, 5-7, closed to 34-32 early in the fourth quarter but a 3-pointer by Scott Roegner, followed by a basket by Chris Dalley and another basket by Roegner, rebuilt the Chargers' comfort zone.

Championship Semifinal

Bishops 57, Fallbrook 42-- Fallbrook (8-3) finished fourth in the Avocado League last season with a 3-7 record. But an 8-2 start to this season, coupled with the emergence of sophomores Tim Manning and Malik Legree, has the Warriors looking to join the league's upper echelon.

Manning, who has averaged 18 points, scored a team-high 17 against Bishop's (11-1). But 10 of those came in the second quarter.

Small but tenacious, Santa Paula's defense kept it close, though in the end it was unable to match up with Easterly or with 6-foot-8 center JasonGruber.  Gruber finished with 13 points, seven of them in the fourth quarter during a stretch when Ventura simply lobbed the ball in over the Santa Paula defense.
