Just before the start of Friday's Foothill League showdown between Hart and host West Ranch, Hart fans started showing up en masse. They matched the vocal, large home fans of West Ranch and even had Moses show up before the start of the third quarter to part the red sea of Hart fans.

It all set the stage for an 84-65 victory by Hart, which avenged its only loss of the season to West Ranch earlier this month. The league race is now tied, with West Ranch (15-6, 5-1) and Hart (21-1, 5-1) each in first place.

Sophomore guard Myles Franklin of Hart was magnificent, scoring 30 points. Junior guard Lewis Stallworth had 22 points. Another guard, Frank Lonsinger, had three three-pointers.

Ryan Beddeo led West Ranch with 22 points. Kevin Harris had 19 points and Ako Kaluna finished with 16 points.
