They have crossed paths before. They come from the same city and have the same goal. Now, Marcell Capers and Isaac Burton, who starred on the hardwood floors of two South-Central high schools, have united in the desert as Arizona State's starting backcourt. Not bad for a couple of little-noticed junior college transfers who have managed to make their presence known in a conference brimming with quality guards.

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.
