Boys' basketball: Santa Monica ends Redondo's streak
Santa Monica opened the season ranked in the top 25 by The Times and proceeded to lost three of its first four games.
But the Vikings (8-5) have won four of their last five games following a 71-43 victory over Redondo (10-3) on Wednesday night that snapped the Sea Hawks' nine-game winning streak. Corey Walker had 23 points for Santa Monica, which also has a recent victory over regionally ranked Thousand Oaks and might be on the verge of cracking The Times' rankings again.
The Vikings next play host to Mira Costa on Friday.
