Best In The West Day One: Game No. 6
Harvard-Westlake Wins Over Morningside-- (Dec. 26, 1998)

Harvard Westlake 54, Morningside 51

We didn't see it (because we had to go to yet another tournament for just a short while before returning in the evening to the BIW), but we understand that Russell Lakey (5'-11" Jr. PG) had a very good game, and Harvard-Westlake's Todd Kurihawa also had 12 points to lead the Wolverines in a close one.   Anthony Naylor (6'-3" Jr. SF) is slowly but steadily making a recovery from his devastating shoulder injury suffered at the Best of the Summer tournament, and he had 3 points.  Eric Geffner (6'-5" Jr. SG/SF) had 4, Kelechi Ogbunamiri (6'-3" Jr. SG/SF) had 7.  H-W's "big guys" also played well, and Dan Kinzer (6'-8" Sr. F/C) had 2 points, Spencer Torgan (6'-3" Jr. PF) had 2, and Alex Holmes (6'-4" Sr. PF) had 9.

For Morningside, Dwayne Trotter (6'-4" Jr. SG/SF) led all scorers with 25 points.  Others scoring were Tracy Cathey (6'-1" Jr. SG) with 9, Kenneth Ellison (5'-7" Sr. PG) with 2, Durell Siplain (6'-0" Sr. G) with 1, Dante Tatum (6'-3" Jr. F) had 4, Daniel Campell (5'-11" So. PG/SG) had 2, Chrishawn Lawrence (6'-0" Sr. G) had 4, and Raphael Johnson (6'-2" Sr. G) had 2.
