 Call it an honor to be subjected to the Evan Wardlow lockdown. That's what happened to talented junior guard Cesar Reyes of Sun Valley Poly on Friday night. From the moment he stepped onto the court against El Camino Real, Reyes was shadowed and locked down by the 6-foot-3 Santa Clara-bound Wardlow, who plays defense with a passion that's frequently missing at the high school level. Reyes missed his first nine shots of the first half in Poly's 76-42 loss. He finished with 15 points.

Bishop Montgomery didn't just defeat Moreau Catholic, 85-44, to capture the Division IV state championship at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, it set a record in the process. The Knights' 41-point blowout is the largest margin of victory in state finals history, eclipsing the previous mark of 36, which was reached twice -- both times in Division IV.   Stephen Thompson led the way with 20 points, four assists, three steals and two blocks for Bishop Montgomery (28-6), which built a 17-point halftime lead.  Bishop Montgomery out-rebounded the Mariners, 50-35, didn't allow a three-point basket, made 13 of 15 free throws and forced 22 turnovers.  Ethan Thompson had 14 points, Justin Bibbins had 12 points, nine rebounds and four assists and Christian Oshita added nine points for the Knights, who won their third state title in four finals appearances.

 There was so much interest in Austin Hatch's news conference on Wednesday in a lecture hall at Los Angeles Loyola that a TV station from Indiana went live with some of his comments. Hatch, the 6-foot-6 senior who moved to Los Angeles from Fort Wayne, Ind., to help his recovery from a 2011 brain injury suffered in a plane crash that killed his father and stepmother, is still not fully recovered to suit up for the Cubs. "My time is coming soon," Hatch said. Hatch was able to handle a nearly 30-minute question and answer session with confidence and poise and displayed unreal determination for a 19-year-old who has been through so much.

 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.

 Chaminade Coach Todd Wolfson is borrowing a page from the Pete Carroll playbook in trying to have some fun during the pressure of going for a championship. He had been telling his players to prepare for a "hard" practice session on Wednesday in preparing for Saturday's Division III Southern California Regional final against Santa Margarita. Instead, he went to In-N-Out and bought 32 double-doubles. The team will only concentrate on shooting Wednesday while enjoying its moment of food ecstasy.

Just in time for the start of Western League play, Fairfax High is about to get a boost with the return of 6-foot-2 junior guard Lorne Currie to the program. He's scheduled to enroll on Monday. Currie was supposed to be a key player for the Lions until he became academically ineligible last season, then transferred to St. John Bosco. He intends to return to Fairfax after attending St. John Bosco this past semester and will be eligible immediately. He scored 29 points in a game against Harvard-Westlake as a sophomore at Fairfax.
