When he was a senior at Torrance High, Joe Zaletel received only one letter from a college basketball recruiter. Interest in Zaletel didn't pick up after he spent the 1991-92 season playing at Harbor College. But after sitting out last season and attending classes at El Camino, Zaletel has returned in a big way. As a sophomore with the Warriors, the 6-foot-7 forward is among the state community college scoring leaders with a 28-point average. And more mail is arriving each day.

Despite getting credit for a point it didn't score, No. 1-ranked Estancia High School lost, 52-51, to Huntington Beach at the buzzer in the championship game of the La Quinta Tournament. Huntington Beach's Andy Kijewski scored on a turnaround shot over Matt Fuerbringer, Estancia's 6-foot-5 center, as time ran out. It was Kijewski's sixth and seventh points of the quarter, and his game-winning shot ended any chance that a scoring error would affect the outcome.
