Girls Basketball: Drew 48, Oakland Military Institute 21
The Dragons (8-1) are off to a hot start and they can entirely thank their defense.
Drew has limited opponents to 24.5 points per game, and held the Grizzlies (3-7) to just nine first-half points in the Drew Invitational championship game on Thursday.
Drew junior point guard Victoria Verdan led the defense with nine steals, while junior Neff Rodgers, who was later named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, notched her seventh double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds.
Boys Basketball: Jewish Community 44, Kehillah 29
The Wolves (6-3) didn’t have to go far to face their rival from Palo Alto, but clinched their tenth-consecutive win over the Rams (3-4) in the Drew Invitational on Thursday.
Jewish Community senior guard Grant Fineman led the Wolves with 15 points and five assists, and was named to the All-Tournament team. Junior forward Anthony Gumberg also scored 13 points and sophomore Arthur Guz added eight.
Boys Basketball: Riordan 73, Terra Nova 28
The Crusaders (7-3) started the game on an 11-0 run, led 23-7 after the first quarter and didn’t allow the Tigers (6-7) to score more than eight points in any quarter of the blowout win in the South San Francisco Classic.
Senior guard D.J. Harvey was the only Riordan player to score in double figures with a game-high 12 points, but 10 other Crusaders’ players scored, including Geru Mabrey, Daniel Selsor and Iwunna Ugbaja, who all had eight points apiece.
