Nearly 2,000 fans packed Tustin High School's gymnasium Friday night to see Tustin, The Times' second-ranked basketball team, rout rival Foothill, 88-48. "This is the first time in 14 years there has been such a blowout in this game," Foothill coach Jim Reames said. "We played an excellent Tustin team that is probably the best since Roger Middleton was there."

This boys' basketball season, Foothill Coach Jim Reames has decided bigger is better. After watching El Modena outrebound his team, 39-19, in a 65-59 loss three weeks ago, Reames switched to a lineup that features five of his six tallest players. Friday night in the rematch at El Modena, Foothill (11-9, 5-1 in league) beat the Vanguards, 54-52, winning its fifth consecutive game and moving into a first-place tie with El Modena (14-7, 5-1) in the Century League.

Reamer's Screamers, Foothill High School's raucous and rowdy rooting section, weren't able to make the trip to Canyon Friday night. But that didn't mean that the Canyon gym fell silent, either. Foothill Coach Jim Reames probably was the most hoarse man in the gym after watching his team defeat Canyon, 68-54. The victory clinched the Century League championship for Foothill, which improved to 16-6 overall and 8-0 in league. "It's over," Reames said. "I wanted this one bad."

When 3-time defending Century League champion Santa Ana High School played Foothill earlier this season, the Saints escaped with a 6-point overtime victory. When the teams met Friday night in the Century League opener for both schools, it took 2 overtime periods before Foothill turned the tables on Santa Ana with a 49-47 victory in Chapman College's Hutton Sports Center. Foothill forward Mark Wilkinson's shot with 5 seconds remaining in the second overtime period decided the game.
