Burbank boys beat Sac High tonight to break Metro basketball deadlock

By Bill Paterson

The No. 4 Burbank High School boys basketball team broke a Metro Conference deadlock for first place tonight, beating No. 2 Sacramento 80-74 on the Dragons' home court in Oak Park.

Vick West Jr. led the Titans (18-4, 8-1) with 27 points, Rob Long added 15 and Mitchell Love 12. Erik Kinney topped Sacramento (17-5, 7-2) with 22. Aaron Cameron added 15 and Robert Garrett 12.

It was Burbank's second league win over Sacramento this season. The Titans beat the Dragons 78-74 at Burbank on Jan. 7.

Burbank's only league loss was a forfeit to Hiram Johnson in the Metro opener.

The Titans were forced to forfeit that game as penalty for a bench-clearing brawl in their previous game against Morningside of Inglewood in the championship of the Modesto Christian tournament.
