Louisville signees Amir Johnson and Bryan Harvey led their respective teams to championships over the weekend.

The 6-9 Johnson, selected to play in the McDonald's All-American game next month in South Bend, Indiana, led Los Angeles Westchester to its sixth City title in the past eight years with a 69-58 win over rival Fairfax.

Johnson, a possible first-round selection in the NBA Draft this summer, led a balanced Comets scoring attack with 15 points and 9 rebounds, while Duke-bound forward Jamal Boykin of Fairfax fouled out early in the fourth quarter with only nine points.

Harvey, a 6-5 guard, led Compton (CA) Dominguez (25-5) to the CIF Division II-AA title Saturday afternoon with a 57-51 win over Pasadena at the Pond.

Harvey, who sank four straight free throws to provide Dominguez' final points, led the Dons in scoring with 15 points.

"I couldn't be more proud of a group of guys," Dominguez coach Russell Otis told's Frank Burlison. "It's a cliche, but it was a total team effort. We got great leadership from Bryan and the other seniors, but all of our underclassmen played well, too."

Dominguez plays host to a State Southern-Calafornia Regional Division II first-round game Tuesday night.

Also, Louisville-bound Terrence Williams and Seattle Rainier Beach (21-7), were upset in the Class 3A state semifinals 56-44 by Mark Morris.

Williams led the Vikings in scoring with 25 points on 9-19 shooting from the field.
