2nd Annual Reebok Compton Tip-Off Classic:
A Little Help From The Pros--(Dec. 1, 1998)

Since we lost some of our notes from last night (actually Etop has them), we turn to Louis Johnson of the Long Beach Press Telegram for some details and scores from last night.  You already know that Wesley Stokes of Poly and Travon Bryant of Jordan played really well, hitting for 26 and 24 points respectively in the first session of the Second Annual Compton Tip-Off Classic at Compton College.

But what we may have left out was that the score of the Poly v. Bishop Montgomery game was 61-49.  If we had it right, the so much the better.  Stokes scored 18 of his 26 in the second half. "I thought we played well in spurts, but we must minimize our turnovers," Poly coach Ron Palmer told Johnson. "But I was pleased with the effort that our kids gave."

We also had Joe Travis (6'-7" Jr. F) with about 16 points, but Johnson had him with 14 points and six rebounds (we can't check right now because our darn browser keeps crashing).  Bryant, who was being eyed closely by the UCLA coaches in attendance, also grabbed 12 rebounds.  And the correct score of the JW North v. Jordan game was 80-66, with Jordan winning.  Darren Peterson and Craig Calloway, added 20 and 16 points, respectively.  Thanks for keeping track Louis.

And speaking of a little help from the pros, Cedric Ceballos will be in attendance tonight to help his alma mater, Dominguez in it's game with Crossroads.  No, not playing or coaching, since Russell Otis does just fine, but as a guest DJ, spinning some of his own new stuff.

Again, the schedule for tonight is:

5:00 p.m. -- Pomona v. The Bishop's School of La Jolla
6:30 p.m. -- Dominguez v. Crossroads
8:00 p.m. -- Compton v. Lynwood

You'll want to get there early because seating is limited and if it's anything like last year, there will be a ton of people turned away at the door because it will be a sellout.
