Two years ago, Manual Arts senior guard Marcell Capers was not good enough to make Crenshaw High's varsity basketball team. But Friday night, he helped end the Cougars' two-year City championship reign.

Six-foot-6 senior center William Celestine scored 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Toilers.
