It was Kevin O'Neill's first summer as head coach at Northwestern and he was sure his first mistake had been signing his first recruit, Sean Wink, a three-point specialist from Brea Olinda High. As it turns out, he was just about to make his first mistake. "I had taken Sean sight unseen . . . well, I'd seen one tape," O'Neill said. "We were at that point where one player was better than no players, so we signed him out of desperation. But when he got here, I didn't think he was into it enough.

The task of facing fifth-ranked and defending league champion Brea Olinda in an Orange League opener was difficult enough for Magnolia. And it was compounded by the fact that the Sentinels had not played a game since Jan. 4. All of which made Brea Olinda's 90-73 victory Wednesday at Magnolia not only predictable but inevitable. The Sentinels (10-7, 0-1) were rusty, making only five of 25 field-goal attempts in the first half and 25 of 64 (39%) for the game.

We never get mentioned with the good teams in the county," said Lloyd after Brea Olinda raised its record to 13-2 with Wednesday's victory. "Of course, I didn't want to say it until we had won because [Sonora] is a legitimate top-10 team.
