Fairfax 84, Ocean View 73 (2 OT)
For a time, the boys' basketball game between Los Angeles Fairfax and Huntington Beach Ocean View looked more like UCLA vs. Princeton, only one-on-one at the high school level.

Josh Shipp of Fairfax, who signed with the Bruins in November, and Princeton-bound senior Matt Sargeant of Ocean View, took turns one-upping each other at the Nike Extravaganza until Fairfax, ranked No. 2 in the Southland by The Times, finally pulled away to win, 84-73, in double overtime Saturday night at Loyola Marymount.

"So close," Sargeant said. "We played great but it's kind of bittersweet. We wanted that win."

Shipp, a 6-6 forward, scored 14 of his game-high 34 points in the fourth quarter and overtimes, including a three-point basket with 55 seconds remaining in the second extra period, giving the Lions (16-2) a 79-73 lead.

Sargeant scored 11 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter to rally the No. 19 Seahawks from a 48-43 deficit at the start of the quarter. Sargeant, a 6-3 guard, also blocked Shipp's shot late in regulation and again just before the end of the first overtime to keep his team's chances alive.

"It's ironic," Sargeant said. "I've been playing with or against Josh since I was 8 years old and we had never guarded each other before."

Shipp said Sargeant surprised him with his shot-blocking ability.

"He came with it today," Shipp said.

Ocean View (15-6) played well from the start. The Seahawks opened an 18-13 lead late in the first quarter on Clint Amberry's three-point play, but fell behind after getting outscored, 19-8, in the third quarter. Amberry, a 6-9 freshman center, scored 21 points to lead Ocean View and teammate Greg Okwudibonye had 19.

Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy 77, Westchester 62
Oak Hill, the top-ranked team in the nation, jumped out to an 18-4 lead in the first quarter and shot 68.2 percent from the floor to maintain a 14-point lead at halftime.

Gabriel Pruitt scored 31 points to lead Westchester, ranked No. 1 in the Southland by The Times, hitting seven of 12 three-point shots. Pruitt, a 6-5 senior guard, scored 27 points in the second half after getting in early foul trouble.

Josh Smith, Oak Hill's 6-8 forward who has signed with Indiana, had 21 points and 10 rebounds and junior point guard Rajon Rondo scored 20 for the Warriors (22-0), who shot 57.4 percent from the floor for the game.

After Oak Hill took its early 14-point lead, the Comets (17-2) scored five straight to cut the lead to 18-9, but never got any closer. The Comets shot 28.6 percent from the floor in the first half and 35.9 for the game.
