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.

I don't think the smile has left the face of Santa Monica Coach James Hecht ever since his players delivered a Southern Section 1A championship last season. And there's more smiling to come. Hecht has a guard duo that should be one of the best for underclassmen. Junior Nuwr'iyl Williams has picked up scholarship offers from Louisville, Oregon, Colorado and St. John's, among others. Sophomore Jonah Mathews, the brother of Cal guard Jordan Mathews, showed in the summer he has big-time scoring skills.
