Chris Barnes Compton basketball SoCal Prep Legends boys athlete of the week

Chris Barnes Compton basketballNoteworthy: After two weeks of Moore League basketball, there’s only one top dog left in town: the undefeated Compton Tarbabes, who withstood stiff tests from Jordan and Millikan last week.

While a put-back from Raysean Scott with five seconds left in the game helped boost the Tarbabes over the Panthers, it was a furious performance from Chris Barnes that put Compton in first place with a win over the Rams.

Barnes, a Millikan transfer, helped lead his new team back from a 33-17 deficit, scoring 13 of his 17 points in the second half (including two fourth-quarter threes to seal it).
