Cody Nulph is having fun again. You can see it in his smile and sense it when he shares a high-five with teammates. The Orange Lutheran shortstop is experiencing an MVP-like senior season. On Tuesday, he had a triple and two singles and turned in his usual strong defensive performance in the Lancers' 8-2 Trinity League victory over Anaheim Servite. Lutheran is off to a 6-0 start in league play. "It's real big for us," Nulph said. Nulph is a four-year starter who began his high school career trying to overcome a gut-wrenching tragedy.

When one brother plays in the NBA and another brother plays professionally in Japan, it's a big advantage. Brothers Isaac and Daniel Hamilton of Bellflower St. John Bosco spent last summer learning from their older brothers Jordan and Gary, and their improvement can be seen every time they're on the basketball court. Isaac, a 6-foot-5 junior, scored 37 points and Daniel, a 6-6 sophomore, scored 23 points for St. John Bosco, which held off Orange Lutheran, 80-73, on Wednesday night in a Trinity League game.
