Boys' basketball: Oak Park is ready to make run at St. John Bosco

December 5, 2012 | 11:46 am

Don't laugh, but Oak Park isn't afraid of Bellflower St. John Bosco, everyone's pick to win Southern Section Division 3A this season.

Last season, the Eagles beat St. John Bosco, 67-66, in the playoff semifinals. Oak Park is full of talent again, led by Ron Lee Jr. and J.D. Slajchert.

The Eagles improved to 2-0 on Tuesday with a 76-47 rout of Agoura in their own tournament. Lee scored 22 points and Slajchert had 19 points, nine rebounds and five assists.

Oak Park continues action Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. against Reseda.
