Indeed, South Medford and Lake Oswego were ranked 1-2 virtually the entire season, with the Panthers owning the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press poll and the Lakers holding the top position in the poll. Both will come back strong next winter. Lake Oswego will return nine of its 12-man roster, including starters Kevin Love and guards Taylor Marr and Ernie Spada. South Medford returns six of its 10-man roster, including Kyle Singler and Harthun, who are, with little argument, the state’s premier small forward and point guard, respectively. Mail Tribine 3/14

Call it a glut of good fortune."I'm just glad it's happening, because it's coming at the right time for us," UCLA assistant coach Kerry Keating said. "It's a big need. There's still a long way to go, especially with guards. Some grow late and some mature late, but these guys have proven themselves worthy of recruitment."...One matchup set for 2006-07 is North Hollywood Campbell Hall and Jrue Holiday taking on Woodland Hills Taft and Larry Drew Jr.L.A.
