Millenium Cup Division Games--First round

Uniontown (Uniontown, Pa.) 69, Artesia (Lakewood, Calif.) 52--[Condensed from Louis Johnson's report for the LB Press-Telegram]--. . . after Thursday night's contest against Uniontown of Pennsylvania in the opening round of the 25th annual Holiday Prep Classic, Pera offered an assessment of his team that should certainly get its attention. "We looked like the worst-coached basketball team to step on the floor," a visibly upset Pera said after Artesia was eliminated from Millennium Cup championship play following a 69-52 dismantling at the hands of Uniontown.  Where was the team that beat Mayfair? I have no idea what happened to that team. We actually had someone scout (Uniontown) and we still played about as bad as you can play tonight. The better team definitely won the game."  Thanks to a few old friends from his coaching days in Pennsylvania, Pera and the Pioneers (5-3) had advance knowledge of the Red Raiders' signature fullcourt pressure defense and their talented backcourt of 6-foot seniors Dierre Jenkins and Terrance Vaughns. In addition, with 6-9 Ronald Allen and 6-8 Ryan Meilleur inside against a Uniontown squad with no player taller than 6-4, Artesia was expected to exploit its distinct height advantage inside. However, the scouting report and preparation in practice this week were moot for the Pioneers in this game, as the Red Raiders (8-0) unleashed their throttling pressure defense and forced 27 turnovers. Fifteen of those miscues came in the first half, which the Red Raiders utilized to help build a comfortable 40-26 lead.  In addition, the inside dominance of Allen and Meilleur never materialized, while Jenkins and Vaughns (game-high six steals) had their way offensively, scoring 24 and 16 points, respectively. The two were especially deadly in the opening half, combining for 30 points, with Jenkins scoring 20 on 8-of-9 shooting from the field. Artesia, which trailed by 15 points or more for the majority of the second half, got to within 58-46 on a dunk by Meilleur with just under four minutes to play. But the Pioneers could get no closer, as Uniontown made 9 of 10 foul shots down the stretch to move on to the Millennium Cup championship quarterfinals . Meilleur made 8 of 10 shots and finished with 20 points and 7 rebounds while Allen was held to just 4 points and 5 rebounds for the Pioneers, who will face Pleasure Ridge Park of Louisville, Kentucky in a consolation quarterfinal today at 6:50 p.m. at Green Valley.

Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) 78, Andrew Hill (San Jose, Calif.) 61 -- [From Las Vegas Sun and Review-Journal reports]:  In Millennium Cup play, Bishop Gorman moved within a win of a potential showdown with east-side power Green Valley. The Gaels (7-0) rolled over Andrew Hill (Calif.) 78-61 behind 24 points, seven rebounds and four steals from C.J. Watson. Brandon Knott and Mark Hill added 16 and 13 points, respectively, for the state's top-ranked team, which built an early 27-12 lead and never looked back, withstanding a 40-point onslaught from the Falcons' Jayson Obazuaye.  Gorman will face Bonner (N.C.), a 72-60 winner over Carson (Calif.), today at 8:15 p.m. at Green Valley  Fans got a glimpse of Hill's skills Thursday night as the junior scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half to help the Gaels to a 78-61 victory over Andrew Hill (Calif.) in the Millennium Cup at Green Valley High. Hill scored Gorman's first four points of the second half, driving down the lane for a lay-up and putting back a teammate's miss. Then, with Gorman up 51-33, Hill scored the Gaels' next seven points to push the lead to 55-36 with 9:29 to play. He left the game shortly after that to rest his right ankle, which he injured playing football. Hill also had 10 rebounds and two blocked shots. As usual, senior guard C.J. Watson led Gorman, scoring 24 points with seven rebounds and four steals, all of which led to lay-ups for the Gaels. Brandon Knott added 16 points and Robert Porter had nine, eight coming in the first half. Porter also had eight rebounds and four assists. Gorman came out strong from the start, taking the lead in the first minute and never trailing. The Gaels went on a 13-4 run midway through the half to push the score to 29-14. Jayson Obazuaye was just about a one-man team for the Falcons, scoring a game-high 40 points. No other Andrew Hill player scored more than six, and the 6-4 senior had 14 of Andrew Hill's 19 points in the last six minutes.  Gorman was able to rest most of its starters for the final five minutes, and all 13 Gaels on the roster played.

Green Valley (Henderson) 58, Pleasure Ridge Park (Louisville, Ky.) 54 --[From Las Vegas Sun and Review-Journal reports]:Green Valley scored the first 14 points of the second half and held on to beat Pleasure Ridge Park (Ky.) 58-54 Thursday in the Holiday Prep Classic at Green Valley High School.  The Gators trailed 32-20 with 1:42 left in the first half before a Jonathan Osborne basket started a 20-0 run. Green Valley struggled against the Panthers' press and committed 31 turnovers in the Millennium Cup victory.   Green Valley was 23 of 30 from the free-throw line. Ron Dunlap scored 17 points and Osborne 15 to lead the Gators. The Gators struggled, turning the ball over a whopping 31 times, including an ugly stretch that saw them cough it up 12 times in 14 possessions. The Gators (8-1) dug themselves an early hole in the first half, going down 32-20 with 1:42 to play. But the locals finished the half strong, scoring the final six points, including Justin Jones' runner off the glass just ahead of the buzzer. Green Valley continued its run to open the second 16-minute session, scoring 14 straight points and holding the Panthers (7-2) without a point for the first six minutes to build a 40-34 advantage. From there, free throws keyed the Gator attack, as the hosts converted on 12 of 14 foul shots down the stretch to hold off Pleasure Ridge Park. Panther Maurice Blakey had a chance to tie things up with time winding down, but his 3-pointer bounced harmlessly off the back of the rim. Jon Osborne added 15 points, including three 3-pointers for the victors, while Blakey finished with 19 points for the Panthers to lead all scorers

Bonner Academy (Raleigh, N.C.) 72, Carson (Carson, Calif.) 60 -- The Colts (5-3) rallied several times from double-digit deficits in the second half, but the Hoyas' strength and size inside eventually allowed them to pull away for a Millennium Cup first-round victory. Junior forward Ekene Ibekwe found things tough inside and finished with just 13 points and 5 rebounds for Carson, which plays San Jose Andrew Hill in a consolation quarterfinal at Green Valley at 8:15 p.m.

Our Savior New American 84, LA Fremont 75--[From Greg Perry]:   "Fremont, one of the pre-tournament favorites, was dropped by Our Savior New American, from Long Island, NY. 6-6 JR Oumar Sylla paced OSNA with 30 points and 15 rebounds. The OSNA guards were tough enough to handle the Fremont pressure, and the combination of Sylla and 6-8 SO Juan palacios (16 pts) was too much for Fremont inside. Fremont did  make a stirring comeback, trimming a 73-53 deficit to 82-75 late in the game, but it wasn't to be. 6-3 SR Glen Bullard led the Pathfinders with 22 points. Three point shooting may have been the difference in the game, as OSNA hit 6/11 (54.5%), while Fremont could only manage 3/20 (15%). Fremont drops into the consolation bracket where they meet local squad Durango. Durango has been crippled with injuries, missing both their DI recruits (Frank Brown and Martrel Johnson, both to Montana St.) with different helath problems (Johnson is out for the year and in need of a kidney transplant, Brown's injury is much more mundane, yet will force him to miss the tournament completely). As a result, Durango has virtually no size, and they are relying on several freshmen and sophs who would probably be on the junior varsity under other circumstances."

Modesto Christian 94, Farrell (Pa) 92--[From the Modesto Bee's correspondent]: "Modesto Christian High's David Paris put on a show at the Las Vegas Powerade Tournament Thursday night. Paris, the Crusaders' power foward who has already committed to play college basketball at California, scored 44 points and pulled down 14 rebounds as Modesto Christian beat Farrell (Pa.) 94-92.  James Noel added 22 points for the Crusaders. While Farrell countered with three players with 20 points or more, the Cruasaders also got 12 rebounds each from Noel and Liam Hughes, who added 14 points. Modesto Christian is now in the 16-team Millenium Bracket at the 80-team tournament. The Crusaders will play Garces of Bakersfield -- a 77-52 winner over St. Benedict of New Jersey -- today at 8:15 p.m. Garces is the No.1 ranked Division IV team in the state.

Denver East 76, Durango (Las Vegas) 55 --[From Las Vegas Sun and Review-Journal reports]:At Durango, David Bloodshaw scored 18 points as the Angels beat the Trailblazers in the Millennium Cup. Steve Stowers scored 14 and Josh Wood 12 for Durango.

Bakersfield Garces Memorial 77, Newark (NJ) St. Benedicts 52--[From Greg Perry]: "St. Benedict's came in unbeaten, and among the top-ranked teams in New Jersey. Early on, Robert Swift was blocking everything in sight, and scoring inside off putbacks, but he want to the bench with three fouls with 9:58 to go in the first half. I expected a run by St. Benedict's at that point, but the Rams closed the half by outscoring the Grey Bees 26-19. St Benedict's just couldn't deal with the perimeter size of Garces, with guys like 6-5 JR Athony Esparza and 6-7 JR Zach Ryan shooting 3's over the smaller New Jersey guards and small forwards. The Garces bench performed admirably as well, especially inside, where they had to deal with two players regarded as the two best sophomores in New Jersey, 6-8 Stanley Branch and 6-7 Kevin Palacios. Garces meets an equally tall team today, Modesto Christian. Cal recruit David Paris had a monster game for Modesto in round one, finishing with 44 pts and 13 rebs to lead his team over upset-minded Pittsburgh Farrell, 94-92. Swift might have his hands full with 6-9 Paris and 7-2 JR Liam Hughes. The difference might be in the backcourt, where Modesto's inexperienced guards might not be able to handle Kyle Shiloh."

The Spartans took advantage, building a 34-27 halftime lead en route to a 68-65 upset of the previously-unbeaten Texas team.
