 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.

Not only does Mater Dei have perhaps the best player in California, it also has the best team.  On Saturday night, the Monarchs proved that where it counts: on the court. Mater Dei won its 11th state title, its fourth in a row and its second straight in the Open Division with a 71-61 victory over Bishop O'Dowd, a team the Monarchs edged 63-59 at the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas in December. Arizona-bound Stanley Johnson led the charge with 25 points, eight assists, three steals and two blocks and his spectacular two-handed dunk early in the second quarter ignited a 10-4 run that put Mater Dei in front.

The coaches at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon can't say enough good things about 6-foot-4 eighth-grader Cassius Stanley. "He's the best eighth-grade athlete I've seen," football Coach Jon Ellinghouse said. Stanley is considered a top basketball player, but he also plays football and baseball. The big question is whether he'll stay at Sierra Canyon for his freshman year or enroll at another high school. He's in Sacramento cheering on the girls' basketball team to an expected Division IV state title.

 Encino Crespi Coach Russell White traveled to North Carolina last weekend to watch his former point guard, London Perrantes, help Viriginia win its first two games in the NCAA tournament, and it was an experience he'll never forget. "It was surreal," White said. "It was probably one of the best professional weekends of my life watching him go about his business. It was very fulfilling. " Perrantes was one of the top guards in the Mission League during his days at Crespi, and his composure under pressure for a freshman keeps coming through.
