Boys Hoops: Damien 55, Ayala 50; Covina 46, Northview 41; Gabrielino 44, Arroyo 39

Covina beats Northview, will host Wilson on Friday for first in VVL: Covina High School’s boys basketball team used a 7-0 run late in the fourth quarter to defeat arch-rival Northview 46-41 in a crucial Valle Vista League game Wednesday night. The Colts spent most of the fourth quarter nursing a small lead, but fell behind when Danny Johnson hit a jumper to put Northview up 36-34 with just over two minutes left.

Damien wins after scoring just 15 first-half points: For the first half of Wednesday’s Sierra League boys basketball showdown with visiting Ayala High, Damien looked anything but the CIF-SS Division 3AAA’s top-ranked team. Damien scored just 15 first-half points and Chris Reyes was held scoreless as Ayala led 25-15 at the half. But the Spartans outscored the Bulldogs 19-7 and went on to earn a 55-50 victory.

Gabrielino takes over first in MVL with win over Arroyo: Gabrielino High School basketball coach John Carney started two freshmen in a pivotal Mission Valley League game at Arroyo on Wednesday night. Freshman guard Sean Takeuchi, starting only because of an injury, scored his only two baskets midway through the fourth quarter to tie the game and give the Eagles the lead for good in a 44-39 victory.
