* Glendora. Tartan Coach Mike Le Duc is turning in perhaps his finest coaching performance with a team far less talented than his recent squads. James Powell scored 16 points Saturday to lead Glendora (12-3) to a 51-44 victory over Fountain Valley in the Nike Extravaganza.

* Oxnard. The Yellowjackets (15-2) defeated Oxnard Pacifica to win their 33rd consecutive Pacific View League game.

* Santa Monica. The Vikings (13-4) registered victories over Inglewood, Compton Centennial and Redondo. Brett DeAngelis scored 53 points in the three games.

* Whittier. The Cardinals (14-3), led by Michael Hernandez, defeated Paramount and Whittier Pioneer.

*--* LOOKING AHEAD

* Second-ranked Fairfax plays host to No. 3 Westchester on Tuesday in the first game this season between the Western League rivals. Defending state champion Westchester won three of four meetings between the teams last season.

* Russell Otis returns to coach his first home game at Compton Dominguez since the 1999-2000 season when the Dons play host to Lynwood in a San Gabriel Valley League showdown Wednesday.

* Top-ranked Santa Ana Mater Dei plays No. 21 Diamond Bar in the featured game of the Southern California Shootout on Saturday at the Felix Events Center at Azusa Pacific. No. 18 Walnut and two other teams on the brink of inclusion in The Times' rankings -- Van Nuys Montclair Prep and Glendora -- will also play. The $10 tickets are good for admission to all nine games.
