The

St. Monica boys’ basketball team is on a roll these days. Well, at least

through the holiday break. The Mariners Big Three in Spencer Gorman, Dennis

Ashley, and Kavin Dotson continue show their worth to the team game in and game

out. 

The Mariners won three out of four

games in the San Pedro Shootout to place fifth in the tournament. In the

clinching game, St. Monica defeated South Torrance 75-63 behind the outstanding

play of Gorman, who once again provided a spark for the Mariners offensively

and on the board. 

For the game, Gorman scored points and pulled down 15

rebounds, while adding two block shots.

Dennis

Ashley also came up with a big effort against West Torrance, dropping in

additional 20 points and four assists to go along with Gorman’s output. Ashley was named to the All Tournament team.  

Spencer

Gorman, Kavin Dotson, and Kaivon Simab also played well throughout the

tournament and averaged in double figures. Gorman has stepped up his play recently

and has averaged a double-double throughout the past five games.
