Crenshaw will be playing View Park in a televised quadruple header at home tomorrow! We will kick it off with the girls JV game at 2:30 pm and the boys JV will be playing at 4:00 pm. Following the JV Boys will be our Varsity Lady Cougars, who will also be celebrating their Senior Night at 5:00 pm. The Varsity Cougars will be closing the night with their 7:00 pm game. Tune in to Channel 36 to DVR the games or to watch if you can't make it out.
Here's a quick commercial, produced by our very own Assistant Principal Mr. Guy Quinn, about some of the great things we have to offer here at Crenshaw Magnet High School!
In the Crenshaw home where the Ebiriekwe brothers grew up, the family edict is that education is key. The three brothers' report cards prove the point. Kevin is a 6-foot-6 senior basketball player for Crenshaw, averaging 19 points with a 3.2 grade-point average. Steven is a 6-7 junior also playing basketball and an honors student. The oldest, Chemize, is a 6-5 former basketball player who's student body president at San Diego State.
"My parents are very big on academics and education so we can have great opportunities," Kevin said of his mother and father, who came from Nigeria.
Crenshaw (21-6, 8-0) has won 16 City Section championships in upper division basketball. The Cougars won consecutive Division I championships after the creation of the Open Division the last two seasons. They want to play in the Open Division this season.
A win over View Park Prep on Feb. 7 should clinch it. And count on the Ebiriekwe brothers to deliver.
