It was a wild night in the Moore League last Wednesday, with fans eagerly checking their phones to update a pair of overtime boys' basketball games.

It was a busy championship Saturday for several Long Beach boys basketball teams, as two brought home titles while another finished with a silver plaque.

Long Beach Poly alum Jordan Bell had a big night, and ended up as the top trend on Twitter nationally after his first career start for the Golden State Warriors last weekend.

He’s not regularly talked about as one of the great football players in Long Beach history, but Long Beach Poly alum Marcedes Lewis is quietly putting together his resume for inclusion in that group. Lewis is now in his 12th NFL season, putting him behind only Willie McGinest for longest NFL…
