Saugus girls basketball appears to have found a winning combination on offense. That combination consisted of guard Jordan Oster and power forward Megan Dawe scoring from all over the court in a 57-51 victory over Camarillo Tuesday night at Saugus High School.

Teammate and starting guard Ella Joines suspected something months before the start of the season. "I think ...

"They want to be great, and with that comes great individual responsibility," said Hart head coach Zach Koebel of his players. After last week's fourth-place finish at the Valencia High-Five Classic, Koebel said the team was capable of better. ...
Early in the season, some teams are still trying to settle into a groove. In its second game of the year, West Ranch's offense looked plenty settled. The Wildcats dominated Panorama 82-36 in the Canyon Classic boys basketball tournament at Canyon High School on Wednesday. West Ranch (2-0) didn't leave much doubt about the game, quickly and aggressively finding open shots against an overmatched Panorama team. "We were just being unselfish with the ball," said ...
