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.
