By Bruin Basketball Report

Prep News Roundup is published every Monday.

rebounds as the host Lions, ranked No. 5 by The Times, defeated Western
League foe L.A. Hamilton, 82-37. LA Times 1/23

Senior post Kevin Love got off to a slow start as Lakeridge’s double
and, sometimes, triple-team coverage forced him to shoot contested
jumpers in the early going....For the game, Love had 29 points and 18 rebounds and Marr added 12 points to the effort.  Lake Oswego Review 1/25

Vaccaro closes ABCD camp as he eyes hoops academy: "Look at the talent we had at ABCD. O.J. Mayo, Derrick Rose, Kevin Love. Kids crossed over their sneaker affiliations. Sports Illustrated 1/26

Leading the way was Lake Oswego’s 6-foot-10
center, Kevin Love, who scored 39 points, including 21 in the fourth
quarter. He hit 16 of 22 shots and seven of them came on dunks. Love
also had 20 rebounds, two blocked shots, two steals and two assists. It wasn’t just a dominant performance by Love that
spelled the difference, though. The Lakers (5-0 Three Rivers League,
14-1 overall) also benefited from some clutch outside shooting by
guards Ernie Spada, Taylor Marr and Landon Ainge. Lake Oswego Review 1/26

Kevin Love
has received more accolades than any 18-year-old has the right to for his play on the basketball court. But his coach at Lake Oswego High noticed something more important about the UCLA-bound, 6-10 prodigy after a recent game against Clackamas. Portland Tribune 1/26

Not only were the Pioneers exposed in their upset loss to La Mirada
last week, but they were forced to play without 6-foot-10 center

week for what Coach Loren Grover called "a team situation." Sidney, the second-ranked sophomore in the nation by,
watched from the bench as Malik Story and James Harden picked up the
slack on offense in a 66-62 victory over the visiting Monsoons. LA Times 1/23

Grover said he and the parents of sophomore center Renardo Sidney
agreed upon the decision to hold him out of the three league games this
week as punishment for a "team-related issue" (supposedly related to
his reaction after being taken out of the game during the league
contest with Norwalk Friday night). "He's fine and there is no problem at school, he's still
going to classes and he'll be on our bench this week," Grover added.
"He'll be ready to play Saturday." Press-Telegram 1/23
