Boys' basketball: Loyola pulls out win over Chaminade, 62-61

January 7, 2013 |  9:22 pm

Standout point guards Parker Jackson-Cartwright (ankle injury) and Jaron Martin (strep throat) didn't play on Monday night in a Mission League showdown between Loyola and host Chaminade, but that didn't take away from the drama and excitement.

No. 9-ranked Loyola (12-2, 2-0) was able to pull out a 62-61 victory, getting a basket from Thomas Welsh on an assist from Max Hazzard with 1:19 left to escape the loud, intimidating Chaminade student section with an important road victory.

Jack Williams scored 31 points for No. 7 Chaminade (12-3, 0-1), which battled back from a 10-0 deficit to start the game. Loyola had just one player reach double figures in Mtume Armour, who scored nine of his 11 points in the first quarter. But the Cubs received lots of contributions from many players.

Khalil Bedart-Ghani had a pair of three-point plays. Hazzard handled the point-guard position well. Thomas Lapham made three three-pointers. Trey Mason, facing a box-and-one defense, had eight points.

Crespi came through with another triumph, this time knocking off Alemany, 93-81. London Perrantes scored 30 points. Max Heidegger added 17 points. KJ Moffett led Alemany with 23 points. Crespi is 12-5 and 2-0 in league.

Harvard-Westlake defeated Notre Dame, 56-55. Derick Newton scored 30 points.
