With his college career all set for this fall at Pennsylvania, Julian Harrell doesn't need to impress anyone on the basketball court. It's all about ending his senior year with a championship, and he took charge for Los Angeles Loyola on Saturday night, lifting the host Cubs to a 48-35 victory over Etiwanda (30-3) in a quarterfinal game of the Division I Southern California Regionals.

Josiah Turner, a junior guard from Sacramento, is starting to like Los Angeles. He attended UCLA's game at Pauley Pavilion on Sunday, and he experienced exhilaration on Monday with a career-high 48-point performance in the Oaks Christian tournament that culminated with a game-winning three-pointer from the top of the key at the buzzer to beat Pasadena, 71-70. "It was fun," Turner said. UCLA Coach Ben Howland was sitting at the top of the bleachers watching Turner's show. He's recruiting the 6-foot-3 Turner, who has the athleticism and firepower to play at the collegiate level.

Less than six months after his 17th birthday, Warren Williamson of Los Angeles Loyola earned a spot in the starting lineup for the Cubs' basketball team, completing a comeback that's nothing short of remarkable. For almost two years, the 6-foot-4 Williamson suffered episodes of dizziness and vomiting. He sought a diagnosis from more than a dozen doctors. He endured countless blood tests, CT scans and X-rays. Doctors checked his heart, his brain, his ears.

Conrad Ukropina, the junior kicker-punter for Los Angeles Loyola, is an Eagle Scout with a 4.4 grade-point average. But that doesn't hide the fact he proudly possesses the peculiar personality traits associated with kickers. "They're definitely a little bit out there," Ukropina said. Kickers are the ones riding a boogie board during a hurricane warning. They're the ones begging the coach to let them try a 55-yard field goal that no one thinks can be made. They're the ones faking a broken leg with outlandish screams to convince referees to call a 15-yard penalty for roughing-the-kicker.

Fontana High School advanced to the Big Five Conference semifinals with a 17-14 victory over Los Angeles Loyola, due in large part to 126 yards by running back Keith Washington, a hard-hitting defense, a punt that wasn't and a punt that was. A 39-yard chunk of Washington's yardage total came with 7:39 to play on a touchdown run off a reverse, which gave the Steelers a 17-7 lead.

A sellout crowd of more than 1,200 jammed into Loyola High's gym Saturday night in anticipation of the duel between two of the best young basketball guards in Southern California--junior Omar Wilkes of Los Angeles Loyola and sophomore Bryce Taylor of North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake. Little did anyone suspect that another sophomore guard, Vince Oliver of Loyola, would play a decisive role, scoring 20 points to help the Cubs take over first place in the Mission League with a 73-55 victory.

Back in early December, when key players were injured and starting lineups kept changing, North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake Coach Greg Hilliard insisted that by late January, his team would be very good. The Wolverines (14-2, 3-0) are right on schedule after a 56-47 victory over Encino Crespi on Monday night that propelled them into first place in the Mission League. Josh Hearlihy, an improving 6-foot-7 junior who has caught the attention of college recruiters, scored 16 points, Colorado-bound Damiene Cain had 11 points and senior guard Jordan Butler added 11 points to lead a Harvard-Westlake team that opened a 19-point lead in the third quarter.

When it comes to guards, Los Angeles Loyola has an abundance of riches. The Cubs are playing summer basketball with a four-guard starting lineup in which the players know each other so well they could form their own synchronized swimming team. "They all handle it, they all shoot it, they all pass it," Coach Jamal Adams said. "They have good chemistry. They have a good feel for what they do well. " Sophomore Parker Cartwright and seniors Julian Harrell, Justin Childress and Justin Hazzard are varsity standouts, and on Tuesday, Adams unveiled another guard to get excited about in junior Trey Mason, who made six three-point baskets during a 20-point first-half performance against Woodland Hills El Camino Real in the Fairfax tournament.

If they lined up the basketball players from Los Angeles Loyola and North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake on Friday night and everyone looked at their knees, it would be easy to tell which team won. "Knees, thighs ? everywhere," Loyola's Julian Harrell said of his nicks and bruises. Diving for loose balls and fighting for every rebound, Loyola used its hustle and hunger to end Harvard-Westlake's 18-game win streak with a 71-51 victory before a packed gym at Loyola. No one was better than the 6-foot-5 Harrell, who scored 14 of his 24 points in the third quarter for the Cubs (19-5, 9-2)
