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.

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)
