In the 1990s, Harvard-Westlake had real twin towers in twins Jason and Jarron Collins. In 2021-22 , the school has another set of twin towers in 6-foot-9 junior Jacob Huggins and 6-8 senior Landon Lewis. They have helped the Wolverines to a 5-0 start after a 73-46 win over Palisades on Monday night in an opening game of the Maranatha tournament.
Huggins scored 19 points and Lewis scored 17 points. Brady Dunlap added 13 points. Coach David Rebibo is going to figure out ways to use the Wolverines’ size advantage.
“They’re really good players who work hard and care about winning,” he said. “They’re great kids.”
Harvard-Westlake could end up meeting unbeaten Taft in the tournament finals on Saturday. Taft played a nonleague game on Monday and defeated Hawkins 100-29, making double-digit dunks in the first quarter. Taft opens play in the Maranatha tournament on Tuesday.
