Boys’ basketball competes in Inland Empire Classic

The Culver City boys’ basketball team beat Grand Terrance 72-66 last Tuesday to record their first win the Inland Empire Classic to even their record at 3-3. They lost their first game in the Classic to East Valley Redlands last Saturday.

On Tuesday the Centaurs played their best offensive game of the year. “We really played aggressively on theoffensive end and we really shared the ball,” said head coach Adam Eskridge. Isaiah Benson scored 18 points and Anthony Wheatle had 14.

“Right now we are mostly searching for a little more consistency,” said Eskridge. “We have some really good stretches and some really poor ones. We definitely took a step towards playing four complete quarters in the game on Tuesday. I am hoping for a strong end to this tournament and a good performance in the San Gabriel tournament which we won last year.”

After the holiday tournaments the Centaurs return home on January 4, to face Torrance at 7:30 p.m.
