Boys' basketball: Mounier leads Crespi to upset of Orange Lutheran

Matt Mounier scored 19 points and had 10 rebounds as Encino Crespi, ranked No. 24 by The Times, knocked off No. 11 Orange Lutheran, 55-47, in a nonleague game at Orange Lutheran.

Chris Connelly added 14 rebounds for the Celts, who could get even stronger if guard Michael Avery wins his CIF appeal. The Celts did not have any of their football players yet.

In the Redondo tournament, Chaunce Hill scored 15 points and Laik Carter had 14 as Fairfax defeated Compton Dominguez, 54-51. No. 1 Long Beach Poly defeated Santee, 98-23, with Ryan Anderson and Alex Carmon scoring 23 points apiece.

In the Campbell Hall tournament, David Nwaba had 25 points in L.A. University's 64-22 win over Canoga Park. Calabasas defeated Blair, 76-34. Campbell Hall got 27 points and 10 rebounds from Cole Huff, 20 points from K.J. Smith and 12 points, 10 assists and 10 steals from Austin McBroom in a 72-35 win over Sun Valley Poly.

Good job, Celts! I saw OLU play against Price in the championship game last season at Mater Dei, in the game right before the Celts stomped on Alemany's face. OLU fell to Price by a few points at the end, but they are one heck of a great team. Good job, Celts.

On the Michael Avery issue, if any player is entitled to a waiver it's Avery. If he doesn't get it, the CIF will have another lawsuit on their hands -- this kid is a strong Div. I college prospect, and sitting out a a substantial portion or all of this season seriously damages his scholarship prospects...CIF could be on the hook for that.

Let him play!!!


not a nd grad

great win for crespi. i wonder if their football players suited up today. once they round into basketball shape, they should have an excellent team.
