Campbell Hall One Team To Watch This Year--(Dec. 3, 1998)

Last year we previewed Campbell Hall, a team which we just haven't gotten around to checking out this season, but we've gotten several e-mails urging us to take a closer look, and after seeing one of those reports, we intend to do so in the near future.  Campbell Hall, for those who don't know, plays in the Delphic League along with Crossroads, Brentwood, Montclair Prep, Whitney, and this year's State Division V Champions, Pacific Hills. They are coached by second year head coach Brian Haloosim.  The program featured some great players last season, including Josh Glass (6'-0" Fr. PG) who made the University of Miami basketball team as a walk-on this year, and who may yet be filling us in on what's happening back in Florida and what it's like being a walk-on at a major D-I school.  Campbell Hall also has another pretty well-known alumn playing D-I basketball, Alex Lopez (6'-10" Jr. C) who is the starting center for the University of Santa Clara Broncos and who made his homecoming debut this season when the Broncos played the Bruins at UCLA on November 18.

This year, Campbell Hall's team got off to a great start. On Monday, they beat Faith Baptist by a score of 98 to 37. The high scorers were Brandon Woodard with 20, Josh Levy, who transferred from  Chaminade this summer, who had 15 points in only 11 minutes of playing time,  and Jesse Foster with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocked shots. On Tuesday, they beat Viewpoint 81 to 33. Greg Drobnick had 20 points and Josh Levy had 16.

Looks like they're going to be one of the teams to watch in the Delphic League, along with Crossroads and Pacific Hills. Oh, and about Crossroad's defeat suffered at the hands of Dominguez last night, we had a chance to talk with Baron Davis after the UCLA game tonight, and all he could do was shake his head and say, "They've got to play with more heart. Crossroads has got the talent, but they just have to show the heart."
