Reporting from Sacramento -- They looked ahead with blank stares, some with tears in their eyes. The ending in the Division IV state championship boys' basketball game Friday afternoon at Power Balance Pavilion left Los Angeles Price players feeling frustrated and helpless to change the result. Richmond Salesian came away with a 70-56 victory, thanks to a strong second-half performance behind scrappy defense that included taking three fourth-quarter charging fouls and the all-around play of 6-foot-5 junior standout Jabari Bird.

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum was scheduled for another injection in his injured right knee. Bynum on Monday was expected to receive an injection of Synvisc — a gel-like substance that sometimes provides relief for inflamed tissue. The natural substance is designed to lubricate and cushion the joint. The 76ers say the shot has been a routine procedure for Bynum during the previous two seasons and is unrelated to the bone bruise on his right knee. Bynum will continue with conditioning drills.

With foul trouble mounting and a fourth-quarter lead beginning to dwindle, Sun Valley Village Christian turned to the most unlikely of players, reserve guard Joe Shashaty, to deliver the decisive blows in the Division V state championship basketball game Saturday at Power Balance Pavilion. Shashaty made consecutive three-pointers midway through the final quarter, enabling the Crusaders (32-3) to protect a four-point lead and come away with a 62-51 victory over Alameda St. Joseph Notre Dame for their first state title.

Whether healthy or sick, injured or fit, Katin Reinhardt of Santa Ana Mater Dei found a way to make an impact. There was the 35-point performance with nine three-pointers on national television against New York Christ the King in mid-January. There was the 17-point first-quarter outburst with five three-pointers against unbeaten Bellflower St. John Bosco in late January when he was running a 102-degree temperature during the day. And there was the 30-point performance against Sacramento Sheldon in the state championship game when he made a Division I-record six three-pointers despite wearing a soft cast to protect the injured thumb on his shooting hand.

Elijah Brown, the son of Lakers Coach Mike Brown, did something Saturday in the Division I Southern California Regional final that would have brought his father to his feet clapping with pride and joy. Brown dove for a loose ball in the first quarter against Fresno Bullard, scrapped and clawed for the ball, then flipped it to Santa Ana Mater Dei teammate Xavier Johnson, who made a layup, was fouled and completed a three-point play. Brown's hustle was contagious and sent a message of toughness and unselfishness.

SACRAMENTO — There were hugs, high-fives and flying shoulder bumps involving Kobe Bryant on Thursday at Power Balance Pavilion. All to celebrate Bryant's winning the NBA scoring title on the last day of the regular season? Not so much. The Lakers star was taking part in a playful competition with teammates and assistant coach Chuck Person after the morning shoot-around to see who could make the most half-court shots. Bryant passed on the opportunity to make baskets that counted later in the day against the Sacramento Kings, essentially conceding the scoring title to Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant . Durant secured his third consecutive scoring title by averaging 28.03 points per game this season, a few ticks above Bryant's 27.86 average.

SACRAMENTO -- This was a bounce-back game for the Clippers. It was a game to see how they would respond after losing a tough game to the Lakers on Wednesday night. It was a game to see how the Clippers would respond to playing a Sacramento Kings team that has one of the worst records in the NBA, to see if the Clippers would have the energy on a back-to-back night after exerting so much against the Lakers. Though it wasn't easy, the Clippers got the 93-85 victory over the Kings on Thursday night at Power Balance Pavilion, a game in which Blake Griffin and Sacramento's DeMarcus Cousins got physical and exchanged words right up to the end. "That's what we talked about going into the game, bouncing back," said Chris Paul, who didn't have one of his better games.

Who could have imagined a scenario where it would take a senior basketball player wearing a cast on his shooting hand because of a thumb injury to produce the best three-point shooting performance in a Division I state championship game? Katin Reinhardt's six three-pointers Saturday night during Santa Ana Mater Dei's 66-48 victory over Sacramento Sheldon at Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento was both surprising and inspiring. The best record remains the single-game performance for most points in a state final established by Tracy Murray of Glendora when he scored 64 points in the Division II final in 1989.

There's a large white board in every NBA locker room filled with scribblings and strategies tailored for each upcoming game. Teams didn't exactly run out of ink while outlining what to do against the Lakers. Watch out for post-ups from Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol . Beware of isolations and post-ups from Kobe Bryant . The rest was pretty much fine print. Opposing coaches have to spend more time at the white board now that Ramon Sessions is with the Lakers.

The highly anticipated rematch between regional powers had a new cast of characters, but on the biggest stage it was Santa Ana Mater Dei's stars who shined the brightest. Senior guard Nirra Fields showed why she is headed for UCLA next season, scoring 24 points and dishing out six assists to lead the Monarchs to their second straight Division I state championship and third consecutive state title with a 57-40 victory over Berkeley on Saturday night at Power Balance Pavilion. "I never let it enter my mind that we had them," said Fields, a stepdaughter of Lakers Coach Mike Brown and a transfer from Canada who was at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia last year.

Mike Brown's schedule has already proven hectic in this lockout-shortened season. There's time between games. He has less flexibility with practice times. And then there's the dizzying cross-country trips. On Saturday, the Lakers coach faced an even stiffer challenge. Brown planned to fly to Sacramento on a private plane after Lakers' practice so that he can squeeze in a pair of state championship games. Nirra Fields, a standout senior guard on the Mater Dei girls' team whom Brown and his wife Carolyn obtained legal guardianship of last year, will play in a state title game at 6 p.m. against Berkeley at Power Balance Pavilion.
