No. 2-ranked Loyola has a 14-game winning streak, but the Cubs trail Chaminade, 37-22, at halftime of their Mission League game at Loyola. Chamiande's matchup zone defense has been causing Loyola problems. The Cubs keep missing shots, and the balls are being rebounded by 6-foot-8 Jack Williams and 6-10 Trevor Stanback. On offense, Williams, a Long Beach State signee, has been effective, scoring 14 points. Stanback has eight points and Sammy Linn has seven. Loyola is going to need to change the tempo in the second half and start to rely on Parker Jackson-Cartwright to penetrate more on offense. Thomas Welsh, Loyola's 7-foot center, has been held to a season-low two points.

Dan Monson, the basketball coach at Long Beach State, will feel like a proud father this weekend in Sacramento as he watches not one, not two, not three, but four high school players he signed to letters of intent last November play for state championships. "I can cheer for every one of them because they're in four different games," he said. Shooting guard Deontae North of Corona Centennial, forward Jack Williams of West Hills Chaminade, point guard Justin Bibbins of Torrance Bishop Montgomery and power forward Temidayo Yussuf of Alameda St. Joseph Notre Dame form a recruiting class like few others in 49ers history.
