Walker leads Fontana boys

first_imgWalker was 11-for-20 from the field, 7-of-18 from beyond the arc, and 5-of-6 from the line. He took eight rebounds and had four assists, a steal and a blocked shot. A.J. Moore scored 13 points for Fontana. Donte Godlock added 11. Troy Beverly was Los Altos’ No. 2 scorer with eight points. Griffin scored on three consecutive possessions to get Los Altos a tie at 48 with 2:24 left in the third quarter, but Walker scored on a short jumper, fed Godlock for a layup, and Moore made a steal and took it in for a layup to give the Steelers a six-point lead. Los Altos never got within five after that. FONTANA – Sophomore guard Demetrius Walker rained in 34 points, 21 from 3-point range, overcoming 25 points around the basket by senior forward A.J. Griffin as Fontana High School fended off Los Altos 68-62 in a CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA boys basketball wild-card game Wednesday. Fontana, 16-12 and the No. 4 team out of the Citrus Belt League, advances to a Friday road game with ninth-seeded Torrance (21-6), champion of the Freeway League. Los Altos, an at-large team out of the Miramonte League, finishes 13-14. Walker, the highly touted underclassman declared “the next LeBron James” by Sports Illustrated while in eighth grade, apparently was an unknown entity to the Conquerors, who failed to contest most of Walker’s early shots. He scored 18 points as Fontana took a 29-22 lead. “Demetrius has really worked on his shooting,” Fontana coach Ryan Smith said. “He may not have made five threes all last season.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SA, Jamaica eye stronger relations

first_img7 August 2012 President Jacob Zuma says he would like to see increased volumes of trade and investment between South Africa and Jamaica. “We are committed to encourage and facilitate South African companies doing business in Jamaica, resulting in the steady growth in trade and investment between our two countries,” Zuma said on Tuesday. Zuma, who was on a working visit to Jamaica, was speaking following talks with Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller in Kingston. As a first step towards this goal, the two countries envisage cooperation among universities on joint research projects, and student and academic exchange programmes. A number of additional agreements are being negotiated between the two countries in the fields of science and technology, defence and security, social development, sport and culture, bilateral air services and public works. Zuma said these agreements would serve to foster mutual cooperation, translating into stronger economic, social and developmental relations between the two countries. “The talks are a clear indication of our collective determination to take our relations to higher levels for the mutual benefit of our respective countries,” Zuma said. Currently, the Jamaican and South African governments have waived visa requirements for all South African and Jamaican passport holders to enable nationals to enter each others’ countries for up to 90 days without visas. This provision has facilitated the smooth movement of South Africans and Jamaicans who are engaging in music, education and sport, among other things. Zuma’s visit culminated in his attendance of a grand cultural gala to mark Jamaica’s 50th year of independence from British rule. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more
