Hicks, a 6-foot-3 freshman guard from Mission Hills High School, scored 36 points and knocked down 10 three-pointers during the week as MiraCosta defeated Cuyamaca and nearly upset host Mt. San Jacinto, the defending PCAC North champion that currently leads the division and is ranked No. 5 in the state.

Hicks scored 23 points, draining seven three-pointers, and was 8-for-10 from the floor as the Spartans beat Cuyamaca 77-62. He then helped the Spartans to a stunning 40-19 halftime lead over Mt. San Jacinto on the road and finished the game with 13 points, including 3-for-3 shooting on three-pointers, in a game the Eagles came back to win 82-69 in overtime.

Zivkovic, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound freshman from San Marcos High School, had 21 points and 10 rebounds as Miramar knocked off Palomar, which came into the game alone in second place in the North Division, 66-53. That gave Zivkovic 38 points and 20 rebounds in the week's two games.

Two nights earlier, Zivkovic scored 17 points, going 3-for-11 from the floor, and had 10 rebounds in a 66-44 loss to Grossmont.

Honorable mention was awarded to San Diego City College basketball player Taylor Nelson, Mt. San Jacinto basketball player Nick Pete and Southwestern baseball player Kyle Bedsole.

Nelson, 6-foot-1 sophomore guard out of Morse High School, scored 22 points in the Knights' 103-45 win over Imperial Valley. He went 6-for-8 from the floor, 5-for-6 on 3-pointers and 5-for-5 from the free throw line. Earlier in the week, he scored six points and passed off for three assists as City College turned back Mesa 83-60.

Pete, a 6-foot-8 freshman from Tahquitz High School in Hemet, helped Mt. San Jacinto to two more victories to run their current win streak to nine games. He also pulled down six key rebounds in a 73-52 win over Palomar and contributed nine points, 11 rebounds and seven blocks as the Eagles outscored MiraCosta 15-2 in the overtime session in their victory over the Spartans.

Bedsole, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound sophomore right-handed pitcher from Monte Vista High School, pitched six innings of one-hit, shutout ball, striking out five batters, to earn the win as the Jaguars defeated Cerro Coso 14-3 as part of a doubleheader sweep to begin the baseball season.
