Pebblebrook Edged on Controversial Call

Wow.  Judgment call, but hate for Pebblebrook to lose it this way.  The referees called it a foul earlier in the same tournament, so they pretty much had to call it a foul in the championship game as well.

Anyone remember UGA vs. Kentucky?

The Sierra Canyon player went to the line and sank both free throws and Pebblebrook lost by one.

UGA commit Derek Ogbeide fouled out with a few minutes left and Sierra Canyon came back. Ogbeide finished with 14 points and seven rebounds.

Ogbeide Powers Pebblebrook

Pebblebrook beat Mater Dei, the school that won the California State Championship for the last few years.  Derek Ogbeide ended up with 19 points, 12 boards and 4 steals.

As I said before, I really like the Ogbeide signing.  He's a true post with good hands and explosive hops.  Can't remember the last time Georgia has had a player like that.

Ogbeide Doubles Up

UGA signee Derek Ogbeide got two back to back double-doubles this week in competition in the MaxPreps Holiday Classic in Palm Springs, California, a tournament featuring 148 high school hoops squads.

Pebblebrook edged Damien in the first game, 69 to 67.  Ogbeide registered 10 points, 10 boards and 5 blocks.  In the second game, Pebblebrook beat Prestonwood 75 to 69.  Ogbeide had 10 points and 11 rebounds (and 3 or 4 blocks, too, if memory serves me).

Pebblebrook plays Mater Dei tonight.
