Samohi Boys’ Basketball: Who Are These Guys?:

SOLOMON SINGER: “Our leading scorer and rebounder most of the season,” said Coach James Hecht. “A very caring individual. It was typical of him when he led cheers at the girls’ playoff game.”

 JAMES MONTGOMERY: An outstanding student who has been accepted for admittance to Georgetown and Syracuse among others and is considering Harvard. An engineering major. Very active in campus organizations. Wore a ponytail his first two years on the varsity and gave it up this season. “Scouts would say to me Number 17 looked good, and by the way, where was James Montgomery?” said Hecht.

CORY WALKER: The second player in Hecht’s 16 years to play four years on the varsity. At 6-foot-4 and extremely athletic, he does well at any position on defense. “He’s a hard worker and a quiet leader,” said Hecht. “He isn’t real vocal, but if someone doesn’t run a play correctly, Cory gives him that look.”

DANILO TOSCOVIC: He loves the game so much he carries a basketball around campus. He’s made a lot of progress in the last few years and put on a dunking exhibition against Culver City, twice in the first quarter making a steal on the Vikings’ full-court press and slamming it home. At 6-foot-4, an outstanding athlete. “He’s a great weapon,” said Hecht.

HARRY HORN: A 6-foot-2 center who volunteered for the job when 6-foot-6 all-league center Kunno Shofu completed his eligibility last season and went on to Fullerton College. “He’s a perimeter player who saw he could best help the team this way,” said Hecht. “A blue collar worker. The unsung hero on our team.”

 JEVON MAZES: A senior and the Vikings’ top reserve. “He’s consistent,” said Hecht. “And he’s as good as our starters, so when he comes into the game there’s no drop-off.”  He’s the brother of former Viking football player Terrell Mazes, who went on to San Diego State.
