The 2014 All-San Pedro News Pilot Prep Boys Basketball Team

With the 2013-2014 boys basketball season officially ending in San Pedro prep sports, the San Pedro High boys basketball team was the only one of the three schools to extend their season to the postseason, where they lost 77-61 to Palisades in the first round of the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I playoffs, but that didn't diminish the exciting season they had.

Especially for San Pedro senior forward Quincy Thomas.

Thomas was able to lead the Pirates in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, averaging 22.9 points and 9.7 rebounds a game, scoring 30 points against eventual Marine League champion Narbonne of Harbor City on January 15, and a career-high 33 against Santiago of Garden Grove in the Artesia Tournament, while piling up seven double-doubles in points and rebounds in league competition.

So Thomas gets our nod for the 2014 San Pedro News Pilot Prep Boys Basketball Player Of The Year, following up last year's winner, San Pedro's Elijah Gaines, who's now playing at Long Beach City College.

One of the best moments this season came in pairs...

On December 20, 2013, Mary Star High boys basketball defeated Sage Hill, 72-69 in double overtime when freshman guard Nathan Linayao drilled a three-pointer just as time expired in double overtime for the victory. Ten days later, San Pedro senior forward James Fish also nailed a game-winning three pointer as time expired for the Pirates to edge Gardena, 73-70 in the third place game of the Pirate Shootout Tournament on December 30.

Even though Port Of Los Angeles High boys basketball, two years removed from a Crosstown League title, didn't have one of it's finest seasons, they did have a highlight of their own when senior forward Cameron Cole threw down a dunk to ice their 51-43 win over their rival Harbor Teacher Prep on February 7.

On that same day, San Pedro turned in the game of the year, rallying from a 15-point deficit to defeat visiting Washington of Los Angeles, 49-46 in a game which ultimately denied the Generals a share of the Marine League title.

What a year it was for prep boys basketball in San Pedro, and here's the full All-News Pilot basketball team.
