2013: Cathedral Holds Sway as Playoffs Near

With nine days until the first round of San Diego Section playoffs,  Cathedral Catholic still is No. 1.

UT-San Diego’s CIF basketball ratings did not change from the previous week.

One through 10, no one moved up or down, although Army-Navy cleared up a nettling mark on its record.

The Warriors, 21-4 and ranked second, defeated La Jolla Country Day, 72-36,  in a rematch of its upset,  44-43 loss to the Torreys Jan. 15.

St. Augustine defeated La Jolla 76-41 and Olympian 74-41 last week and commemorated a special moment in the Saints’ history.

OLD RIVALS MEET AGAIN

Tom Shaules, who set a County record of 60 points in a 102-38 win over Crawford in 1958, was honored at halftime of the Olympian contest, which the Saints led 56-16 after 16 minutes.

Among those who came to see Shaules was an old rival, San Diego High’s Arthur (Hambone) Williams, who was part of two hard-fought games with the Saints in 1958.  Shaules’s team won the first game on the Saints’ floor, 62-56.  Hambone and the Cavers won the rematch at San Diego, 65-57.

MAVERICKS GET RESPECT

La Costa Canyon battled state No. 4 Etiwanda before bowing 56-51.  The Mavericks are fourth in San Diego but the highest-ranked County team as judged by Max-Preps, which has them 17th in Southern California.  Cathedral is 19th.
