Compton Dominguez 69, Inglewood 56--The NBA is in his future but for now Tyson Chandler is enjoying playing his final year in high school and why not?

For now no one can stop him.

"I'm not too anxious to move to the next level. I'm going to miss these days," said Chandler who had 22 points and 15 rebounds.

The 7-foot-1 center had no trouble leading the top-seeded Dons (27-2) to their seventh consecutive Division IIAA title.

"He's a potential NBA lottery pick, its tough for high school kids to defend against him," said Inglewood Coach Patrick Roy.

Not that the Sentinels didn't try but it didn't help that 6-foot-9 centers Doug Thomas and D'Angelo Thomas, Inglewood's only true big men played in foul trouble in the third and fouled out in the fourth quarter.

The Sentinels trailed by 15 in the first half and were able to mount a late third quarter comeback to get within 46-41 thanks to seven points from Terrel Stoval, who finished with 24.

Santa Monica Crossroads 60, Santa Monica St. Monica 39--The top-seeded Roadrunners used a 15-7 run with 4:58 left to win their second consecutive IV-A title.

Isaiah Fox scored 20 points and had 19 rebounds to lead Crossroads (22-5).

Marcus Shelby scored 13 points for the third-seeded Mariners (21-8).
