Torrance Bishop Montgomery raced to a 59-43 victory over Compton Centennial to capture the Southern Section Division III-AA boys' championship at Loyola Marymount's Gersten Pavilion on Friday.
Centennial (20-12) must have thought it was seeing double as twin junior guards Errick and Derrick Craven accounted for 28 points for Bishop Montgomery.
Errick, named the Knights' player of the game, scored 16 and Derrick added 12.
Centennial, plagued by turnovers, countered with its low-post offense, mostly in the form of 6-foot-8 senior forward Ellis Myles, who scored 27 points and had 15 rebounds before fouling out with 1:52 left in the game and the Knights holding a 52-41 lead.
Errick Craven immediately took advantage of Myles' departure by scoring on a dunk on the next possession.
The Knights (24-5) never relinquished their lead as the Apaches could only pull within seven points, 48-41, with 2:02 left.
Bishop Montgomery had a 33-19 halftime lead. Each twin scored 10 points in the first half. At the same time, Centennial could only answer with Myles' 11 points as the Knights were successful using their collapsing defense around him every time he touched the ball.
