There is one county boys' basketball team that will be under tremendous pressure to win this season. It has one of the county's--if not the nation's--best players, two other talented all-league returning starters, plus a transfer who was an all-league selection. Its bench is stocked with junior varsity players who are coming off a 19-6 season. And, no, this team is not Mater Dei. From the first tipoff to the final buzzer, Woodbridge will be watched like steak in a dog pound.

Although Tustin, the second-ranked boys' basketball team in Orange County, escaped with a 68-65 victory over host Woodbridge on Tuesday, Tillers Coach Andy Ground wasn't thrilled. Ground watched Chris Burgess, Woodbridge's sophomore center, rack up 31 points, 16 rebounds and three blocked shots to help the Warriors erase a 13-point deficit in the first quarter. Tustin's victory wasn't secure until Woodbridge's Eric Ripley missed a last-second three-point attempt from 25 feet.

Playing Woodbridge short-handed isn't appealing, but that's what confronted Edison in a nonleague boys' basketball game Tuesday at Woodbridge High. Woodbridge's pressing, trapping defense and its depth wore down Edison, which was missing one starter and had only nine players in uniform, and the Warriors broke open a close game in the second quarter before cruising to a 65-52 victory. Regan Arroyo scored 13 points to lead a balanced attack for Woodbridge (7-4), which had 11 players score.
