Boys' basketball: Loyola's Thompson leaves for De La Salle

September 7, 2008 |  8:50 pm

Hollis Thompson, a 6-foot-8 forward from Los Angeles Loyola who's considered one of the best basketball players in the Southland, has transferred to Concord De La Salle, Coach Jamal Adams said Sunday.

Thompson, who has committed to Georgetown, went to the Bay Area to live with his father. His departure is a big blow to Loyola, which was expected to have one of its best teams in years.

"We still hope to be real good," Adams said.

De La Salle figures to be one of the favorites to win the state Division I title.
