“Cal-Hi Sports Northern California Boys Basketball Player of the Week” Harold Abend

“…Last week, in three games at the NorCal Tip-Off Tournament in Rocklin, (Cole) Anderson stole the show and earned the tourney’s MVP honor after leading the Golden Eagles to the tournament title.

The 6-foot-4 junior point guard started with 31 points in a 91-31 win over Laguna Creek, 36 points against Liberty of Brentwood and a 95-70 victory, 30 points against host Rocklin in a 79-71 win, and in the championship game 65-60 victory over St. Francis of Sacramento Anderson had 21 points.

Those performances were exceptional but his best outing of the season for the 5-1 Golden Eagles came in the team’s only loss two weeks ago at the NorCal Tip-Off Classic at James Logan. Not only did we get to see him in action but we as the PA for the event announced every one of his baskets and 12-for-12 from the free-throw line when he went for 38 points in a 67-62 loss to Cal-Hi Sports No. 4 Windward of Los Angeles…”

Jason Carpenter, Novato basketball
Carpenter averaged 22 points over four games as the Hornets opened league play with a big win over cross-town rival San Marin then went 2-1 at their own tournament, finishing second following a loss to Piner on Saturday night. Carpenter’s best game came on Thursday, as he scored 28 points and hit seven 3-pointers in a 59-54 come-from-behind win over El Camino.”
