West Coast Premier shocks everyone


CYPRESS, Calif. -- It may be a stretch to call West Coast Premier's victory in one of the most competitive regional club tournaments in the country a development of seismic proportions. But just minutes after WCP pulled out a 79-68 decision over the long, 3-point-slinging Cal Swish Black in Sunday's Spring Fling championship game, the Los Angeles area was jolted by a 4.7-magnitude earthquake.

Let's just say things were shaken up on both fronts.

A month ago at the Boo Williams Invitational in Hampton, Va., West Coast Premier hardly looked capable of holding up its own tradition, much less slugging through four difficult opponents to win a top tournament.
