They walked out of the locker room as a group singing at the top of their lungs…mostly out of tune but with true gusto. They had extended their current streak to 7-1 and spoiled West Hills 5-0 winning streak.    Even though they did not play close to their best game, they were a happy group winning a tough game on the road.  They are learning to enjoy winning as a team.

 

Led by sophomore Jailen Gill with 21 points…six dunks(9-10) and nine rebounds,  freshman Dee Jones coming off a 10 day hamstring injury struggled in the first half but found his rhythms in the second half to score nine points and snatched two steals to help pull out the game.  Add to that, Scooter Hall’s 12 points, four assists and three steals. “Ace” Warren ripped down 13 rebounds and put in eight points.

Three statistics stood out to why AVC won this road game; 

  1. Rebounding 53
  2. Steals 13
  3. Assists 15

Was this one of AVC’s best games?  Not by a long shot but a win on the road after a three and half bus ride always feels good and maybe the most important thing about this game was the growing team camaraderie and understanding of their roles.
