Pressure = Busted Pipes or Make Diamonds

Posted: February 23, 2016 in AVC Men's Basketball, AVC Men's BB 2015-16, Playoffs

Congratulations to the four teams in SoCal with the highest RPI;  Saddleback, San Bernardino Valley, Chaffey and AVC.  These four teams played the toughest pre-conference and conference schedules.  Payback is now.

Congratulations to the Western State Conference-South for being the only conference in SoCal to place four teams in the JUCO State Playoffs;

  1. AVC
  2. Bakersfield
  3. Glendale
  4. Citrus

It was a brutal conference season for the WSC-South teams.  One of our point guards used to say, “Pressure can cause busted pipes or make diamonds.”


AVC, currently one of the smallest teams…nearly all guards…in the playoffs, will be playing the biggest team in the playoffs, San Diego with two 7 footers.
