Leuzinger has gotten a boost this season from transfers Adrian McCovey and Ty Meriweather, a pair of 6-5 forwards. McCovey transferred from Fremont High in Los Angeles and Meriweather moved from Kokomo, Ind.
"They're basically guards," Sherman said. "They're both playing out of position. We don't have a power forward."
Not in name, maybe, but Meriweather has filled the role nicely. He had 18 points and 19 rebounds Friday in Leuzinger's 85-63 win over Torrance and has used his long, Kevin McHale-like arms to lead the team in rebounding.
"He's been a pleasant surprise," Sherman said. "At one time I thought he wasn't going to make the team. He turned it around and started playing pretty well after that.
"He's actually a three-point shooter, but we can't afford to use him in that capacity."
Friday night's Bay League basketball game between rivals Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills will be televised at 3:30 p.m. Saturday by Dimension Cable, which serves the peninsula.
