Narbonne shows off Adams brothers in win over Long Beach Jordan

Narbonne’s Marcus Adams Jr. sauntered away by just seven points and his team trailed Long Beach Jordan by seven points in the third quarter at Redondo Union on Wednesday. A timeout and a look at the scoreboard was enough for Adams to react like a hibernating bear.

He immediately hit a three-pointer and the 6-foot-7 senior finished the tournament with 23 points and 16 rebounds to help the Gauchos defeat Jordan 64-62 in a tournament game by Ryse Williams. His brother Maximo, a 6-6 freshman, scored 13 points and hit three three-pointers.

“It woke up the whole team, especially me,” Marcus said of the sudden deficit.

There’s no doubt that the Gauchos (1-1) will be the team to beat in City Section basketball, but they’re still in the works. There are injured players and a key player on the break, Trey Jones, a transfer from Windward, will be eligible to play late next month. They have yet to develop chemistry under first-year coach Kumase Demesma.

“We’re still trying to find our identity,” Demesma said.

Once they do that, there are many improvements that can be made. There’s a whole lot of talent in Marcus Adams to build on. People said the City Section was done producing elite players. Not true. Adam’s is so good. He’s had two dunks, a couple of threes, dribbles like a guard at times and seems to have a lot more to offer before the end of the season.

Frank Chambers scored 23 points for Jordan.

St. Paul 45, St. Monika 40: Maurice Wright scored 13 points and Kamron Fontenot added 12 points for St. Paul (5-1).

Bishop Alemany 63, El Camino Real 60: Jared Mims scored 17 points and Paris Lassiter 16 for Alemany.

Santa Monica 54, Riverside Poly 44: Joshua Hecht finished with 24 points for Santa Monica.

Village Christian 82, Palisades 60: Thomas Luczak led for Village Christian with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

Basketball for girls

Granada Hills 56, Holy Martyrs 32: Karma Perez had 11 points and Emma Perez contributed 14 rebounds for the Highlanders.
