Dorsey Upsets Fremont

January 12, 2002|Eric Sondheimer; Dave Desmond

Drew Gibson, the son of Dorsey High boys' basketball Coach Kevin Gibson, doesn't hear too many compliments from his demanding father, but he sensed a sign of satisfaction after scoring a career-high 30 points in the Dons' 75-70 upset victory over No. 2-ranked Fremont in a Coliseum League game Friday at Dorsey.

"You could see it on his face that he knew I played a good game," Drew said. "He doesn't have to say anything."

Gibson, a junior guard, scored seven consecutive points in the fourth quarter when Dorsey (10-4, 2-0 in league) overcame a 10-point deficit. The Dons used a ferocious half-court trapping defense that rattled Fremont (14-2, 1-1).

The Pathfinders had beaten Dorsey by 10 points earlier this season in a tournament game. Donald Wilson added 22 points for Dorsey, which upset No. 13 Crenshaw on Wednesday.

"We knew we had the capabilities of being a pretty good team," Kevin Gibson said.

Fremont's only loss this season had come to a team from New York. Terrell Powell scored 21 points to lead the Pathfinders, who were unable to find a dependable ballhandler to counter the Dons' aggressive trapping defense.
