The struggle continued for the Culver City High boy’s basketball team as it lost its first two Ocean League games last week, bringing their overall record to 4-12.
Culver lost to Morningside, 46-40 and to defending champion Santa Monica, 78-52 in the Vikings’ gym.
“We don’t have tremendous size but we did a good job of getting the ball to our post players,” said Santa Monica coach James Hecht.
“I didn’t think we played an exceptional game but when I looked at the scoreboard I kept seeing we were far ahead.”
Santa Monica led by 42-21 after three quarters.
Defending champion Santa Monica had barely outlasted Inglewood two nights earlier in their league opener.

The high-flying Culver City girl’s basketball team easily won its first two league games, 50-17 over Morningside and 64-46 over Santa Monica.
Coach Julian Anderson’s team has a 12-4 record.
