Perennial powerhouse St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.) raised its current national-best boys basketball winning streak to 71 games on Sunday with stifling defense during a 57-23 victory over Camden (N.J.).

Eleven players scored, led by senior guard Hallice Cooke with 12 points. Tarin Smith was next with nine points and Josh Brown finished with eight.

* In a battle of unbeatens, Lake Oswego (Ore.) defeated Jesuit (Portland, Ore.) 62-43 to win the Les Schwab Invitational in Hillsboro, Ore. Senior Calvin Hermanson scored 17 of his 20 points during a second-half comeback.

MVP honors went to Jesuit's Khyan Rayner, who was high scorer in the game with 21 points. Jesuit's Xavier Coleman took an inbounds pass and made a spectacular full-court bank shot at the first-quarter buzzer.
