Final Look at Fall Jamboree

Posted: September 20, 2016 in AVC Men's Basketball, AVC Men's BB 2016-17, Fall Shootout

“I like Antelope Valley a lot.”  “Their size is going to give people a lot of problems this season.”  “When you control the glass you win games.”

John Bynum,

There is no question that this early in the season the four AVC big men stand out when you look at team and the stats.  With the talented bigs…6’10”, 6’8”, 6’8”, 6’7”, and add to that a 6’4”, 200 wing with a 6’8” wing span who loves to rebound…one could make the mistake that AVC is a uni-dimensional team.  I don’t believe that is the case.  In fact, I predict that the hot shooting, middle slashing guards will win as many games for AVC as their dominant bigs.  It will up to the dynamic duo point guards to spread the rock around and control the game tempo…depending on match ups…ranging from up tempo to grinding out some games.

Bottom line of course is defense!  Although AVC’s defense was not mentioned much in the Fall Jamboree, they have the depth and energy to just wear down their opponent’s with the shut down in your face defense.

With a 7-1 Summer/Fall Jamboree record, AVC showed they are going to be very competitive this year.  They are going to have to stay healthy and continue as individuals to learn their roles including shut down defense.
