By Bruin Basketball Report

Prep News Roundup is published every Monday during the season.


no news last week


Russell Westbrook carried his team in the first quarter. Then, he really took over. The senior guard for Leuzinger had a career night and set a school record with 51 points in an 81-69 nonleague victory at Carson on Friday night. Westbrook, a 6-foot-3, 170-pounder, scored all nine first-quarter points for Leuzinger (14-2) and he never stopped going at the Colts. Daily Breeze (1/7)

Prior to the start of Lake Oswego's third quarter against Reserve Christian, Portland Trail Blazers rookie Martell Webster walked over to the Lakers' bench and offered a few pointers to Kevin Love. It turns out Webster, who jumped straight to the NBA last year after an exceptional high school career in Seattle, is very familiar with Love and the Lake Oswego program. The Oregonian (1/5)

Kyle Singler says he has "lost track of the number of (scholarship) offers" he has acquired but has trimmed his list of favorites to "Duke, UCLA, Arizona, Kansas, North Carolina and either Washington or Oregon." The Oregonian (1/3)

At 6-8, Kyle Singler is South’s tallest player and its most complete. The heavily recruited junior is averaging 19.8 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals per game despite being constantly targeted by opposing defenses. Mail Tribune (1/6)

Mitty held off visiting Serra 54-50 despite missing 6-foot-9 post player Drew Gordon because of disciplinary reasons. Gordon, a sophomore, was called for two technical fouls in Mitty's WCAL opener, which earned him a one-game league suspension. It is the second such occurrence this season for Gordon, and Coach Brian Eagleson will sit him for an additional game, against Valley Christian on Tuesday. Mercury News (1/7)

Four Oxnard players scored in double figures. Kevin Quilantang had a game-high 24 points. Omondi Amoke had 18 points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes. Ventura County Star (1/7)

“That guy is good,” said the La Marque boys basketball coach of 6-foot-8 sophomore Luke Babbitt, who scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Grizzlies pulled out a 62-58 overtime win over the Cougars. Galveston County Daily News

Larry Drew was just getting warmed up. The 6-foot sophomore found a wide open Javael Boykins underneath for a basket to make it a 23-8 game with 1:45 left in the first. As Dorsey attempted to bring the ball upcourt, Drew stepped into the passing lane for a steal, leading to another easy transition layup for Boykins and a 15-point lead. L.A. Daily News (1/8)

Andy Poling scored 34 points, including the game-winning free throws in overtime, to lead the Wildcats over the host Beavers. The Oregonian (1/7)
