SP, Mary Star Boys B-Ball To Compete In 5th Pirate Shootout

It's that time of year again... and as everyone enjoys whatever is left of their Christmas dinner, they can treat themselves to some high school basketball.

That's right, the San Pedro Pirate Shootout Tournament is back for a fifth straight season.

Also for the first time since 2008, there will be a new champion, thanks to reigning three-time champion Peninsula of Rolling Hills Estates dropping out of the tournament, along with five other schools. This recent drop of schools have narrowed the tournament field down from 16 schools to ten, so the first three days of this four-day tournament will be all pool play games.

San Pedro, currently on a 9-2 start after a strong showing in the Hoover High Tournament in Fresno, is the host school of the tournament, but in-city neighbor Mary Star is also in the tournament.

Rounding out the ten-team field includes South Tahoe of Nevada, South Torrance, who placed third in the tournament a season ago, Gardena, New Millennium of Carson, Venice, South East of South Gate, Rancho Dominguez Prep of Long Beach, and this year's favorite to win the Pirate Shootout... Serra of Gardena.

The Pirates started off strong winning their first nine games, including a 68-56 victory over Washington Union of Fresno in the Hoover Tournament, before dropping their final two games to settle for fourth place. So far, not one particular player has dominated, because they attack their opponents in waves with the likes of senior guards Elijah Gaines, Austin Freitas and Michael Garcia, junior guards Isaac Stell and Zach Foster and junior forward Quincy Thomas.

Mary Star is currently 4-4 this season and will be paced by the likes of junior guard Elijah Davis, senior guard Bryce Cole, sophomore forward Neil Green and senior forward Anthony Camacho.

All the games for all four days (first three are all pool play) are at 12:30pm, 2pm, 3:30pm, 5pm and 6:30pm, and the 6:30 pm game on Wednesday will be a barnburner of a pool play game when San Pedro takes on Serra (6-3 overall), matching up two former Harbor College coaching teammates in San Pedro coach John Bobich, and Serra's Dwan Hurt, both highly established coaches in the South Bay area.

The final day games on Saturday will be for 9th place (12:30pm), 7th place (2pm), 5th place (3:30pm), 3rd place (5pm) and the tournament championship game is set for 6:30pm.

If you love high school basketball, then look no further than the 2012 Pirate Shootout Tournament.

Curmudgeon Corner – Where Are The Vocations?

My Thoughts for March 1, 2015Once again I’ve been confronted with my least favorite thing: change.  While talking with a friend of mine, I discovered our public schools have all but eliminated vocational training.  One of my memories of high school was the time I spent in vocational education classes.  To this day I still remember walking the path past a row of old brick buildings that housed these classes.  As students we referred to these classes as “shop classes.”  They were fun and…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - Integrity Forgotten Again!

My Thoughts for February 15, 2015 It’s happened again!  Another lapse in integrity has happened.  The baseball team from Chicago, the Jackie Robinson West Little League team, has been caught cheating.  Yes, cheating.  There is no other way of saying it.  They didn’t bend the rules, they didn’t make a principled misstep; they conspired to deceive Little League Baseball, and all who love the game.  Unbelievable!  What were those coaches and district managers thinking?  At a time when the black…See More
