SACRAMENTO - It was only fitting that in Stanley Johnson's final game as a Mater Dei Monarch, he got to show off his skills in an NBA arena, because that's where he figures to be hanging out in a few years. On Saturday night, he became the first player in California history to win four upper-division state championships, scoring 25 points and contributing eight assists in Santa Ana Mater Dei's 71-61 victory over Oakland Bishop O'Dowd in the Open Division final at Sleep Train Arena.

 With Zach LaVine announcing he's leaving UCLA for the NBA, Bruin fans were hoping that St. John Bosco's Daniel Hamilton, the younger brother of UCLA redshirt Isaac Hamilton, might decide to join the Bruins to help replace LaVine. But Daniel Hamilton said Saturday after scoring 22 points in the Braves' Division II state championship victory over Folsom that he's headed to Connecticut. He said he likes Connecticut Coach Kevin Ollie, a former Crenshaw player who made a similar move to the East Coast.
