Boys' Basketball Plays Top Teams in Ocean League
January 18, 2018
To be the best you have to beat the best. The Culver City High School boys' basketball team will get that opportunity during the next seven days when they take on Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. All three teams are battling for first place and all three teams play each other during the next week.
The 9-8 Centaurs travel to play 9-7 Santa Monica on Friday for a 7:30 game and they play 12-4 Beverly Hills next Wednesday at home at 7:30 p.m. Santa Monica and Beverly Hills have dominated the Ocean League for the past 10 years but this maybe the year the Centaurs can break through that dominance.
"We have some talented players but we need to become more consistent," said first year head coach Reggie Morris after their win over Lawndale last week. "Until we become more consistent we will continue to underachieve as a team."
According to Morris, if the players play up to their potential they may be able to challenge Santa Monica and Beverly hills for the league title. "We do have some talented players," said Morris.
At the top of the list of talented players is Tevian Jones. The 6'6 forward can score from the inside and outside. "We are playing well right now and we are finally starting to come together as a unit," said Jones last week. "We always try to play hard and we rebound well. I just try to lead by example."
Other players trying to lead by example are Keith Dinwiddle, Cyrus Johnson, Brandon Libertore and freshman Tsalta Wainwright.
