Boys' basketball: Crespi showing ability in early season
The conventional wisdom is that Los Angeles Loyola and North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake should be the favorites to win the Mission League, but don't tell that to Encino Crespi.
The Celts (8-3) won the San Fernando Valley tournament championship with a 78-53 victory over Mission League rival Mission Hills Alemany on Wednesday.
Tournament MVP Matt Mounier had 24 points and football standout Reggie Coates added 12 points and 13 rebounds.
Marquees Coleman scored 20 points and Max Guercy 16 for Alemany (7-2).
