Corey “Corn Dog” Kwok was at Vern Nelson Fieldhouse at Arroyo this week covering summer league basketball. We all know football camp is in full swing but the Dawg wanted to let us know that they are playing hoops too. Here’s the results.
(El Monte) – Boys Basketball summer league roundups – Arroyo HS — Mon 7/16/2012
Arroyo 46 Gabrielino 38: Primitivo Gomez took command from the get-go, nearly outscoring Gabrielino on his own (15 to 17) in the first half as he lit up the Vern Nelson Fieldhouse twice slamming it home in a complete all-around performance as Arroyo led throughout. Primi’ had 24 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 steals.
Gabrielino’s Cameryn Matthews (7 points 12 rebounds) gave Arroyo fits in the first half where he blocked five shots and collared 8 rebounds. The Eagles’ Tyler Shimamoto struggled offensively and had just a deuce to show for in each half.
Rio Hondo Prep 46 Mtn View 39: View rallied from an 11 point halftime deficit and tied it at 33-all with 7 minutes to play but RHP responded, finishing strong down the stretch scoring 13 of the next 19 to seal it. Ryan Wiley-RHP (7 rebounds, 3 assists) surfaced with several key plays in the second half. Jake Holguin carried the Kares on 12 points, 11 rebounds, 2 blocks, an assist, and a steal.
Gladstone 41 El Monte 36: Efficient post play and a lengthy defensive shutout for roughly 8 minutes amidst the second half was key in Gladstone’s win over El Monte. EM drew even at the 2:00 mark but yielded just a FT in the hoop against 6 G-Stone points to end the game. It was tied 23-all at the break with the Lions doing great job on the floor, seizing 13 first half steals.
Workman 52 Duarte 45: The Lobos’ blistering transition offense was too much on Duarte as Workman pulled away and easily won. Osnar Garcia (Workman) fashioned his way to 10 points in each half (finished 20 points, 8 rebounds 5 stealsl) in a dazzling array of moves. Duarte flashed promise with a playmaker at PG and was led by combo forward Josh Dorsey 16 points-11 rebounds.
Keppel 44 South El Monte 35: Five of Keppel’s last six field goals came off assists, and the Aztecs finally separated itself from South to prevail in hand. Christian Lee (Keppel) buried five treys and led everyone on 23 points. He also had six rebounds and three assists. The Southmen were balanced across the lineup with six players having at least 4 points each. Irving Aparicio impeded Keppel with 4 first half blocks.
