Eberhard electric for CdM

BASKETBALL: Senior foward scores career-high 35 points to compensate for the foul trouble Kaluz gets into against Laguna Hills.

January 12, 2008|By David Carrillo PeƱaloza

Even when Eberhard went five for seven from the field and six for six from the free-throw line in the second quarter, Laguna Hills refrained from sending an extra defender Eberhard’s way.

“I was kind of surprised,” said Eberhard, who made nine of 18 shots and 13 of 14 free throws. “But when you got the CIF Player of the Year down low, you got to take something away. You can’t be giving up layups to Stefan.”

The Hawks didn’t, much of the credit going to 6-7 center Colin Pfingst for slowing down Kaluz. Pfingst blocked four shots and scored 11 points, but the Hawks had no answers for Eberhard.


Eberhard, who added 11 rebounds and four steals, proved to be too much on a night CdM was without its starting point guard in Erik Rask, who was on a football recruiting visit at UC Davis. Coach Ryan Schachter said Rask would return this morning and will play in the Sea Kings’ Battle of the Bay game at Newport Harbor at 7 p.m.
