McDonald's All-American point guard Te-Hina Paopao
and Breya Cunningham
, one of the top freshmen in the country, were spectacular in two wins last week for La Jolla Country Day.
In a 78-29 win over JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano) on Saturday, Paopao recorded a triple-double with 19 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists while Cunningham, a 6-foot-3 post, added 27 points and 10 rebounds.
Two days later, Cunningham explosded for 21 points and 25 rebounds in a 69-40 win over Bonita Vista (Chula Vista). Paopao, a 5-9 senior, added 22 points and six assists as California's top-ranked team improved to 24-1. Since a 45-39 loss to Long Beach Poly on Jan. 30, the Torreys have won eight straight and appear to have a firm grib on the No. 1 ranking in the state.
The next four teams — Mater Dei, Sierra Canyon, Mitty and Windward — also remain solid in the rankings. From the top 10 teams, which included new No. 9 Clovis West, the teams were a combined 21-1 last week.
Mater Dei (25-2) was impressive in wins over Aliso Niguel (75-26) and Las Vegas power Bishop Gorman (61-46). In the latter win, Mater Dei's Kevin Kiernan became the first girls basketball coach in state history to win 800 career games.
