Boys' basketball: League titles to be decided on Wednesday

February 8, 2012 |  7:05 am

There should be packed crowds for two Southern Section title deciders on Wednesday night. Westlake Village Oaks Christian (20-4, 8-1) will play at Oak Park (19-7, 8-1) to decide the Tri-Valley League title, and Montebello Cantwell-Sacred Heart (22-4, 8-1) will play at Playa del Rey St. Bernard (18-7, 9-0) for the Camino Real League title. The games are set for 7 p.m.

Both are rematches of close games. Oak Park knocked off Oaks Christian, 61-60, on Jan. 20. It will be a battle of the point guards. Junior Ron Lee of Oak Park has emerged as the best player in the Tri-Valley League. He'll receive competition from Oaks Christian's Chass Bryan.

St. Bernard, which started off as a young, inexperienced team, has made steady improvement under Coach Reggie Morris. Brandon Randolph, a veteran from last season, is averaging 17.9 points. Cantwell-Sacred Heart has one of the section's top scorers in Jose Estrada.
