The top 25 D-2 Universities in the United Stated are of great interest to the AVC fans this year. Lucciano Gamiz is leading #5 Drury University to the 3-0 and Shelton Boykin is leading #13 Angelo State University in their 5-0 start.
#4 Cal Baptist was upset yesterday by UC San Diego and expect them to fall in the rankings.
Aaaaa. Didn’t someone just write that Chaffey gets up for good teams…after their loss to Rio Hondo?
Mt. Sac taking on Irvine Valley tomorrow.
With about 20% of the season over(6 games) its time to pick the best player on the team. Lets look at some of the stats. So far, ten players have played most of the minutes.
And the best player on the team is…THE TEAM! That’s why they are 6-0.
AVC 6 wins 0 losses
85.3 points per game(7th in State)
3 point shooting, 43.4%(9th in State)
Assists per game, 19.3(2nd in State)
Opponents Shooting 3 balls against AVC…(25% 7th in State)
Rebounding…36.3 per game(42nd in State)(-5.3 per game)
Before the season started, AVC was not expecting to start only guards and wings. AVC’s post players are injured or not ready to play. The coaching staff had to scramble to put together a completely different style of basketball to be successful. The AVC size deficient shows itself in the rebounding where their opponent is pulling down 5.3 more rebounds per game.
The main way AVC is winning all of its games is team play; 2nd in state in assists, great shooting, balanced scoring, outstanding passing and intense defense.
AVC is working very hard on gang rebounding and increasing their defense even more.
With 11 days till AVC kicks off the toughest 8 team pre-conference tournament at home, it has time to be ready for a shot a winning its own tournament. This tournament will be a bell weather for all eight teams in the tournament.
What does your senior leader do to lead the team to wins? Lucciano Gamiz led Drury University to it third straight win without a loss by getting the ball to their scorers, four assists, leading the team in rebounds, seven, put in nine points by shooting 50% from beyond the arc. The man is a beast playing 37 minutes.
Game 4 Mid-America Christian 89 Drury 102 Game 4
“Ok guys, this is a very good team we are playing and if we want to remain undefeated we will need to play our best game.” “Follow my lead and I will take you home.”
Lucciiano Gamiz, 4-4 from the field, 2-2 beyond the arc, 5-5 from the free-throw line, 7 rebounds, 15 points, 7 assists in 35 minutes.
Drury starts 4-0.

Game of the Day
(4-2)Cerritos 51 verses (5-1)Irvine Valley 61
Irvine Valley won in double figures against Cerritos. The question keeps coming up, “Are they talented enough to compete with Saddleback who has been dominating the Orange Empire Conference?” Their next game on November 25, 2015 against Mt. Sac could tell us a lot.
(4-4)Rio Hondo 72 verses (5-2)Chaffey 65
Is my memory right in telling me that in the last few years Chaffey has been a beast against ranked teams but has lost concentration against average teams?
(4-2)San Diego 68 verses (4-4)Marin 58 OVERTIME…Stumbling start for Marin.
(4-1)Santa Monica 76 verses (2-3)College of the Canyons 68… Conference foes with two more games against each other.
Long Beach 83 verses Ventura 68…Surprise especially the size of the win.
Sequoias 70 verses MiraCosta 68 MiraCosta …Drops two in row.
