Bruin Recruiting: Prep News Roundup (1/2)

By Bruin Basketball Report

Prep News Roundup is published every Monday during the season.


Santa Margarita senior forward James Keefe, All-County first team last year and a UCLA signee, injured his back on a fall Monday in the Eagles' victory over Hug of Nevada in the first round of the Orange Holiday Classic at Chapman University. Santa Margarita coach Jerry DeBusk said Keefe's injury was painful to the touch, but Keefe said he would be on duty if the Eagles needed him. O.C. Register 12/28


Kevin Love powered Lake Oswego's offense with 20 points, making 8 of 11 shots. He also added 13 rebounds and blocked four shots. Statesman Journal 12/28

Kevin Love gathered a full-court pass and converted a layup as time expired to send a sold-out Liberty High School crowd into a frenzy and propel No. 1 Lake Oswego to a wild 52-51 come-from-behind victory over No. 6 Jesuit in the quarterfinals of the Les Schwab Invitational. Oregonian 12/29

Lake Oswego (5-3) trailed by two points when (Kevin) Love took a pass and attacked the basket with two hands from the left side. But the ball squirted loose above the rim, and Love, hanging onto the rim with his left hand, tipped the ball into the net with his right. Oregonian 12/30

No one disputes that (Kyle) Singler headlines the team’s star power, however. Were it not for his unselfish play, along with limited playing time that has accompanied lop-sided victories through the team’s first five games, his point totals surely would be higher. Mail Tribune 12/26

Kyle Singler had 21 points and 15 rebounds to lead South, which led by 11 points after the first quarter and 21 at halftime. Mail Tribune 12/30

Crenshaw center Darnell Gant led all scorers with 20 points and had 10 rebounds along with six blocks. Daily Breeze 12/31

Justin Holiday recorded a triple-double with 21 points, 18 rebounds and 11 blocks, and Robert Ford contributed 16 points for Campbell Hall, which built a 39-17 halftime lead. L.A. Daily News 12/29

The Toreadors then fought back, led by sophomore guard Larry Drew Jr., who scored seven straight points. L.A. Daily News 12/30

Guards Brandon Jennings and Patrick Christopher each scored 17 to pace Dominguez, but a desperation 3-pointer from halfcourt at the buzzer by Dejon Jackson gave Clovis West the victory. L.B. Press-Telegram 12/28
