FEATS OF THE WEEK: Mississippi State-bound point guard Monta Ellis scored 46 points to lead No. 10 Jackson, Miss., Lanier to a 88-79 double-overtime victory over No. 9 Snellville, Ga., South Gwinnett. About 6,000 fans at Mississippi Coliseum watched as Ellis became the third leading scorer in Magnolia State history . . . St. John's-bound forward Anthony Mason Jr. scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead No. 21 Memphis, Tenn., Fairley past regionally ranked Arlington, Va., O'Connell, 49-44, in the finals of the McDonald's Classic in Erie, Pa. The 6-foot-6, 190-pound junior is the son of former NBA all-star Anthony Mason . . . Fairfax, Vt., Bellows Free Academy and Milton combined to score only 7 points in an eyebrow-raising, slowed-down 5-2 BFA victory. That's right, a basketball final score of 5-2. Neither team scored in the second half as Milton (2-8) simply held the ball and played keep-away from BFA (7-4) for most of the game. There is no shot clock in Vermont prep basketball. According to the National High School Sports Record Book, the lowest combined scoring output in a game was 1 point on three occasions between the years 1927-1930.
