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)

They should start handing out binoculars to high school football fans with the price of admission, because schools no longer seem to care whether fans can actually see a player's number on the field. Bellflower St. John Bosco and Los Angeles Loyola each came out Friday night with sleek Nike-designed jerseys that required "special glasses" to identify players, as one St. John Bosco observer quipped. "I'm just making it up," a play-by-play announcer for iBN Sports said at halftime.

Because of the radar gun, too much emphasis is placed on how hard pitchers throw instead of whether they can get batters out. Sophomore right-hander Jordan Sigman of Los Angeles Loyola is the classic example of a pitcher who uses ball location instead of velocity to achieve success. Sigman's fastball has been clocked at a meager 78 mph, which is especially slow by major league standards. But it hasn't prevented him from being a surprise standout in the Mission League.

C.J. Schellenberg, at 6 feet 7, is intimidating anywhere on the volleyball court. But when he sprints to the service line and bounds into the air, he can make even the most seasoned player wince. That's what happened midway through the Southern Section Division I championship Saturday night at Cypress College.

Call them the Pac-5 pillagers. The Compton Dominguez Dons continued their run of success against teams from the powerful Pac-5 Division on Friday, pulling out a 14-11 victory over host Encino Crespi. The Dons, who play in a Western Division that is three notches below the Pac-5, have made a habit of beating their more powerful counterparts, recording at least one victory against a Pac-5 team in nine of the last 10 seasons. Included in that stretch were triumphs over storied Long Beach Poly in 2005 and Los Angeles Loyola in 2007.

Survival was the underlying theme in sweltering conditions on the first day of the 94th annual CIF state track and field championships at Clovis Buchanan High School. The temperature was over 100 degrees when Friday's preliminaries began and athletes were trying to qualify for today's finals without suffering from heat exhaustion in the process. There was no cooling down Sherman Oaks Notre Dame junior Khalfani Muhammad, who bettered his personal best in the boys' 100 meters, winning his heat and placing first overall in 10.44 seconds.

Top-seeded teams in all of the Southern Section and City Section divisions won their playoff openers over the weekend, setting up some marquee quarterfinals. One of the most interesting is the Southern Section Division I game featuring two-time defending champion Long Beach Poly (9-1) against Los Angeles Loyola (7-2-1) in a rematch of last year's championship game. Poly won the final, 16-13, in overtime at Edison Field for its third title in four years.

Trey Mason swished a pair of free throws with five seconds left and Los Angeles Loyola came from behind to slip past host Santa Monica, 83-82, in overtime Friday night in a semifinal game of the Santa Monica tournament. Parker Jackson-Cartwright scored 27 points, including four three-pointers, and Mason added 17 for the Cubs (7-0), who handed Santa Monica its only other loss last week in the finals of the South Bay Classic in Torrance. "We had confidence because we've played them before and we were down 10 points in the fourth quarter the last time," Mason said.

Can someone who has coached all of his career at the college level suddenly reverse course and be successful at the high school level? That's one of the questions facing Marvin Sanders, who was hired Saturday to take over the football program at Los Angeles Loyola. Sanders, 45, was the secondary coach at USC for one season in 2012, then was fired by Coach Lane Kiffin when the Trojans revamped their defensive coaching staff. He has coached at the college level since 1992, when he became an assistant at Nebraska Wesleyan.
