Boys' basketball: Harvard-Westlake turns to its big men
No. 10-ranked North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake got 21 rebounds from Damiene Cain and 22 points from Zena Edosomwan in a 69-50 victory over Lynwood in an opening game of the Redondo tournament.
What's interesting is that the Wolverines promoted freshman guard Michael Sheng to varsity and he played well. He scored 34 points in a freshman game but injuries are requiring him to play varsity.
