CIF (All Sections) Tournament Games, Monday, December 10, 2001

Calvary Chapel Downey Tournament (Southern Section)
First Round

Serra 83, Campbell Hall 40 --This is what the Times had: "Eugene Jeter and Eugene Hackett each had 18 points to lead Serra (6-0). Jason Evans and Jeffery Arnold each added 16. Matt Llewellyn had 21 points for Campbell Hall."   The Daily Breeze noted: Serra's 6-0 record is the best start in school history.  The scoring from the Long Beach PT though was a bit different than that reported in the Times:  CH:  Washington 2, Harris 10, Roibnett 6, Ford 1, Miller 1, Heard 2, Wilder 3, Llewellyn 15. (it totals 40);  Serra:  Hackett 18, Jeter 18, Evans 16, Hemphill 4, Arnold 16, Carter 2, Hernandez 6, Wade 3.   The Daily News didn't have a box score on the game, so we only have two versions of what happened, and since we missed this game, we can't help out. 

Western Christian 76, Pacific Hills 69 -- Western Christian was surprisingly tough and consistently good offensive and on defense, upsetting a talented, but young Pacific Hills squad.  Pacific Hills was led by Amahl Amedu, while Western Christian was led by Blake Allison (6'-5" Sr. C) and twin guards Sean and Ethan Chin.  We didn't get the scoring details, but it was a great game to watch.   We were also impressed with the athleticism and potential of a couple of Pacific Hills' new young players, including Frank Henry-Ala (6'-2" Fr. F/C), a long-armed agile player who gets to the basket and defends.

Price 85, La Puente 55 -- Price easily handled La Puente in the first round game behind the scoring of Derrick Williams.   We were especially impressed with the passing and court vision of Garland Demazeliere (6'-2" Jr. G), who made a few really saavy passes and plays the game with a lot of feel and knowledge.  We were also impressed with Oscar Edwards' play.  Oscar has reportedly been offered by a number of schools, but may be seriously considering Eastern Kentucky (or was it Western Kentucky?  we can't recall), but Oscar has turned into a better, leaner and meaner version of Darius Sanders, a tough, fire-plug of a player who can get to the basket and rebounds like a maniac.  Kalief Washington (6'-6" Sr. F) played well at the beginning of the game and then at the end, but didn't see much of the floor in the middle, having sustained a slight ankle tweak.  Other players on the Price team who were impressive were Schyler McKay (6'-4" So. F) who reminds us a lot of a much younger Tito Maddox, although he doesn't quite play with Tito's reckless abandon or speed, but he's pretty good when he wants to be.  La Puente had only one player we thought really, truly understands the game of basketball, and that was #20, Conrad Olvera, a 6'-0" Sr. G, who just always seems to know where to be at the right time.  The rest of the team just couldn't seem to get the picture in their heads that running with the Eagles wasn't going to get the job done, and instead Price was able to force turnovers almost at will as La Puente continued to rush their shots.

miley2web.jpg (5703 bytes)Downey Calvary Chapel 89, Stoneridge Prep 64 --Sophomore Ralph Miley had 22 points for Calvary Chapel (4-1). Leon Usher had 19 points to lead Stoneridge Prep (5-1).  People have been telling us about how Miley has been playing especially well since the summer (and unfortunately we didn't get to see his games with Rockfish this summer), so we decided to take a trip over to Calvary Chapel  to check out for ourselves just how good this young man is.   And you know what?  Ralph Miley is for real. He is the real deal, and the only question is just how high a Division I recruit this young man can becomes, because right now he's got great potential and a ton of talent.  Let's give some comparisons:  Right now, he's better than some of the best guards in the country, and we'd say that his level of play is comparable to that of C.J. Watson, the 6'-1" Sr. PG from Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas who signed this fall with Tennessee....Yes, this kid is a soph, but he's that good.   We kid you not, Miley is the honest to goodness, real thing.  He can hit the three, pull up and shoot it in the lane, shoot with a defender in his face, he's got long arms, and is very quick, and he has a great feel for the game, and were it not for Drisdom's presence, he'd no doubt be running the point for the Grizzlies.  Great sense of spacing on the floor, nice pacing and ability to change speed and direction, and he's quick when he needs to be.  Miley absolutely blew by Leon Usher, who many think is one of the fastest players around (ok, so his defense isn't the best, but Leon is like greased lightning, even if his shots weren't falling last night).  When we last saw Miley, he was this skinny, 5'-11" freshman who Mark Berokoff brought out to the Rockfish Spring League, and who mileyusher1web.jpg (3703 bytes)regularly got his rear-end kicked.   So when we arrived we kept looking around the gym for the skinny little kid with glasses, the one who we thought everyone was over-hyping.  But when the game started, Miley reeled off three straight three pointers, made two great assists, and stole the ball, all within the first 4 minutes.  While his play somewhat overshadowed that of teammate Tim Drisdom, it was nice to see that Tim, in his senior season has yet another weapon to pass to who can do something with it.  The Grizzlies cruised to the win, and when we left midway through the fourth quarter, it was close to a 30 point game and garbage time, with Miley and Drisdom sitting it out.  Last observation:  Someone ought to get out and guard David Grace, because he is just automatic from three point range when given an open look, and Stoneridge never quite figured that out. Stoneridge:   Alon 2, Delgado 8, Nang 17, Usher 19, McGarry 1, Shabastari 2, Victor 4, Spencer 11.  CCD:  Brewer 2, Shuler 2, Fitzgerald 2, Henderson 6, Drisdom 16, James 20, Or 2, Miley 22, Landrum 3, Mack Vanderham 3, Grace 7, Johnson 4.

Ocean View Tournament of Champions (Southern Section)
First round

Note: We weren't able to personally get over to Ocean View for the first round action, but our friend Jack Nelson did, and he covered the games for CaliforniaPreps.com and his story on all the first round games he saw, with some pretty detailed descriptions of players and the games is at this link, and also reproduced below:

Cajon 71, Artesia 60 --Donovan Morris scored 25 points for Cajon (2-0). Dejuan Johnson scored 16 points for Artesia (2-2).    Here's Jack Nelson's account of this game: 

Cajon defeated Artesia in the opening game by the score of 74-60. The Cowboys had just a slim 30-29 lead at halftime but broke it open in third quarter behind the hot shooting of senior wing Donavan Morris and jr. guard Romale Porter and went on to easy win over the Pioneers. Morris finished with 22 and Porter 18 and Sr. Fwd Rummel Clark and Jr. Fwd Dmytry Lewis were also in double figures with 12 and 10 respectively.

For the Pioneers Jr. guard KeJuan Johnson led the scoring with 17 and 6'9" Sr. Fwd Ronald Allen had 14. Cajon advances to the quarterfinals Wed night at 7 when they will take on top seeded Mater Dei. Artesia moves to the consolation bracket and will play Hacienda Heights Wilson Wed at 4 PM.

Mater Dei 97, Wilson (HH) 50 --Wesley Washington, Marcel Jones and D.J. Strawberry each scored 16 points for Mater Dei (4-0). Mater Dei:   Gerrity 2, M. Strawberry 15, Nelson 10, Flores 2, Markus 2, Washington 16, Jones 16, Henry 12, D. Strawberry 16.  

For those of you who need details, and not a summary of what happened, here's Jack Nelson's account of the game from CaliforniaPreps.com (see link above):

In game three of the Tournament of Champions the top seeded Mater Dei Monarchs seeking their 3rd straight TOC championship breezed to an easy 97-50 win over Hacienda Heights Wilson. The Monarchs got off to a fast start racing to an 8-0 lead in the first 53 seconds of game. Seven seconds into the game freshman point guard Mike Gerrity hit Wesley Washington with a nice long pass for 2-0 lead. Mike Strawberry was fouled and made 2 free throws on the next possession. Then another assist for Gerrity to D.J. Strawberry followed by a Washington steal and coast to coast drive for layup. 

Marcel Jones who started at center tonight in the 4th different starting lineup in the Monarchs 4 games then scored on an assist from Mike Strawberry to finish a 10-0 run. Mike Moreno scored on a layup at the 5:15 mark to get the Wildcats on the board at 10-2. After an alley oop pass and spectacular basket by Wesley Washington from Gerrity the Monarchs led by 15-2 midway through the first period. Then some sloppy turnovers by Monarchs and a couple three pointers by Wilson cut the lead to 15-8.

With 1:40 left in the period Mike Strawberry ignited another 8-0 run to end the quarter as he made a steal and went coast to coast. This was followed by his cousin D.J. making a beautiful drive through the lane for an easy bucket followed by another steal and coast to coast drive for layup by Marcel Jones.  Yet another steal and driving layup by D.J. ended the quarter with the Monarchs up 23-8.

The second quarter started out very sloppy as Gerrity committed three turnovers in the first minute of the quarter. Although they had a subpar quarter Mater Dei’s lead never went below 10 points (29-19) with 3 minutes left in quarter. Then the Monarchs went on another of their patented runs outscoring the Wildcats 10-1 to take a 39-20 lead into the dressing room at halftime. 

In the second half the high-flying Monarch team completely outclassed the Wildcats as they steadily increased their lead throughout the quarter getting contributions from everyone on the floor. Chris Henry had a double double off the bench with 12 points and 10 rebounds in 14 minutes. The third period ended with the score 65-31. The Monarchs had a 32 point 4th quarter and the final score of 97-50 was their largest lead of the game.

Six Monarchs finished in double digits as D.J. Strawberry, Marcel Jones and Wesley Washington all had 16, Mike Strawberry 15, and off the bench Henry with 12 and Trevante Nelson had 10. Harrison Schaen contributed 6 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocked shots in 11 minutes in his second appearance of the season, Mike Gerrity led in assists and turnovers with 7 each and Mike Strawberry had 3 blocked shots and 4 steals and Washington also had 4 steals.

For the Wildcats, Mike Moreno had 20 points and 8 rebounds and Anthony Salgado had 10 points, 6 rebounds and a blocked shot. The Monarchs finished the game with 42-72 FG for 58 % 0-4 in 3 pt attempts and were 13-17 from free throw line for 76%. Wildcats shot 35% in second half to finish game 19-66 for 29%. Mater Dei now moves on to quarterfinal game against Cajon of San Bernardino at 7 P.M. on Wed evening while Wilson will go into consolation bracket and play Artesia at 4 P.M. Wed afternoon.

Verbum Dei 71, Morningside 40 --Richard Cheney had 13 points for Verbum Dei.

Jack Nelson had more on this game at California Preps.com:

In game two the Verbum Dei Eagles played Morningside of Inglewood. After a close first quarter with Verbum Dei holding a one point lead of 16-15 over the Monarchs, the Eagles broke it wide open with a 14 -0 run to start the quarter. They were led by Sr. reserves DeAngelo Barr and Tai Turner who came off the bench to score 9 and 8 respectively in the quarter. Verbum Dei outscored the Monarchs 25-5 to take a 41-20 lead into the dressing room at halftime.

Morningside's cold shooting continued and they trailed after three periods 56-28. Verbum Dei won by final score of 71-40. Senior Richard Chaney led the Eagles with 13 points while Sr. Martin Starr and Jr. Michael Bell each had 11. Barr and Turner both finished with 9 in the Eagles well balanced attack. For the Monarchs the big gun was 6'2" guard Kahlid Jones who with 17 points was the only player in double digits. Verbum Dei now advances to the quarterfinals at 8:30 P.M. on Wed evening against the host team Ocean View. Morningside falls into consolation bracket and will play Perris at 5:30 P.M. on Wed.

Ocean View 68, Perris 55--Ocean View (2-2) was led by Matt Hatch with 19, and Matt Ortiz with 21.  Sargent 9, Wurtz 2, Gallardo 2, Rivera 2, Clarke 11, Owudibone 2.  Perris (1-5) was led by Robinson with 22.

Again, if you want real detail about this game, here's what Jack Nelson wrote for CaliforniaPreps.com:

In the nightcap of the opening day of the TOC the host Seahawks took on the Perris Panthers. The Panthers led by the torrid shooting of Jerry Robinson took a 19-12 lead at the end of the first quarter with Robinson outscoring the Seahawks team with 14 points in the quarter. Both teams shot poorly in the 2nd quarter and the Panthers still held on to a 27-23 going into halftime.

In the third quarter it was lights out as the Seahawks had a torrid shooting quarter hitting 13 FG's including three 3 pointers as Ortiz had 9 points, Hatch 9 and Sargeant and Clark 5 apiece during the quarter. Perris only scored 11 points so the Seahawks took a 52-38 lead going into the 4th quarter and were able to maintain the double-digit lead throughout the rest of the game and go on to 68-55 win.

Ortiz led the Seahawks with 21 points including 3 3-pointers, Hatch added 19 and Clark was also in double figures with 11. The Seahawks advance to quarterfinal game at 8:30 P.M. on Wed evening against Verbum Dei while the Panthers drop into the consolation bracket against Morningside at 5:30 P.M. on Wed
