Boys' basketball: Dorsey routs Harvard-Westlake

June 27, 2011 |  9:13 pm

Los Angeles Dorsey pulled off the biggest surprise on the opening night of the Fairfax tournament, defeating Studio City Harvard-Westlake, 63-44.

Brandon Baker scored 21 points. Rashad Clark (14 points) and Donald Muepo (12 points) outplayed Harvard-Westlake's more publicized big men, Zena Edosomwan and Josh Hearlihy.

The crowd offered warm applause to new Lakers Coach Mike Brown when he showed up to watch his son, Elijah, play for Santa Ana Mater Dei, which routed North Hollywood Campbell Hall and will play Dorsey on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m.

Taj Adams continued his superb play for Fairfax, scoring 15 points in a 70-47 win over La Canada. The 6-7 transfer from West Adams has become a key player for the Lions.

Adams, who recently picked up a scholarship offer from USC, can guard opponents big and small. As his scoring skills improve, so should the Lions.

Encino Crespi came away with a 73-68 win over Pasadena and will play Fairfax in a 7 p.m. quarterfinal game on Wednesday. Carter Gallo scored 18 points, Mike Milligan 16 and Michael Avery 15. Brandon Jolly had 23 points for Pasadena.

Tuesday's schedule at Fairfax: Orange Lutheran vs. Alemany, 4 p.m.; Loyola vs. El Camino Real, 5:30 p.m.; Oaks Christian vs. Santa Monica, 7 p.m.; Long Beach Poly vs. Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, 8:30 p.m.
