SPHS Boys Basketball Wins Another One In Closing Seconds

HUNTINGTON PARK - One would think that the San Pedro High boys basketball team would grow tired of playing games that come down to the final seconds where it's anybody's ballgame.

Not this group... they actually embrace it.

For the fourth consecutive game, the Pirates were driven to the brink of either an outright defeat, or an overtime, and senior forward Clifford Brown's five-foot turnaround jumper with 23 seconds left would propel San Pedro to a 75-73 victory over Pioneer in a pool play game of the Huntington Park Tournament Monday at Huntington Park High. That shot was the biggest of Brown's four points off the bench.

San Pedro (11-5 overall) held a 56-44 lead after three quarters and led by as much as 16 before the Titans (8-3) made a furious rally to tie the game before Brown's game-winning hoop.

The Pirates recently were put through the ringer in their own Pirate Shootout Tournament last week in games against Long Beach Cabrillo, Rancho Dominguez Prep of Long Beach and Marine League foe Gardena, winning two of those three games to clinch third place. 

Senior forward Quincy Thomas had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead San Pedro. Senior forward James Fish added 11 points and six rebounds, while senior point guard Khalil Dave had 8 points, eight assists and three steals.

San Pedro will next face Fremont of Los Angeles later today in another pool play game.
