THE BUZZ

Clovis East will visit Edison on Thursday for a 7:30 p.m. nonleague game that will match teams that have accounted for five Central Section titles in the past three years. The Timberwolves won Division I crowns in 2007 and '08.

Edison captured D-II championships those two years before beating Central at the buzzer last season for the D-I title. Steve McClellan, a 6-foot-7 forward, has returned for Edison after missing eight games with an ankle injury. The Tigers lost six of those.

Recruiters are beginning to swoop upon Clovis East's Kevin Bailey, a 6-5 junior forward coming off a 42-point game in a 92-86 loss at Sheldon.
