Clovis West Presses Past Muir, 58-54

January 20, 2002|Ben Bolch

Nick Debban scored 12 of his game-high 25 points in the fourth quarter as Fresno Clovis West used its press to rally for a 58-54 intersectional victory over Pasadena Muir in a boys' basketball game Saturday in the McDonald's Invitational at Pasadena City College.

Trailing, 55-54, Muir had a chance to win the game, but Debban blocked Jamaal Hall's driving shot in the lane and grabbed the ball. Hall wrapped up Debban and was whistled for an intentional foul with 2.8 seconds left.

Debban made both free throws to give Clovis West (17-2) a three-point lead, then put the game out of reach by making another free throw with 2.1 seconds to play.

Hall had 14 points for Muir (18-2), which lost for the second consecutive night after falling to Pasadena, 54-42. Clovis West outscored Muir, 15-2, to end the game as its trapping defense caused several turnovers.
