Tomorrow’s Game…Why I Love JUCO Basketball

Posted: January 9, 2017 in AVC Men's Basketball, AVC Men's BB 2016-17, Pre-Conference

imageTomorrow’s game at Antelope Valley against Cerritos College is a perfect example of why I love JUCO basketball.  Two ranked teams(don’t know the rankings as its been 5 weeks since they were posted by the JUCO Coaches…a life time in JUCO ball) these are well matched teams.  How well matched?

AVC and Cerritos played 6 games against the same teams;  Rio Hondo, MiraCosta, COC,, OCC, Ventura, Pierce.   AVC lost and won against Ventura and Cerritos won 8 point.  AVC and Cerritos both beat the other teams.  Very balanced. 

The stats below are from the CCCAA website.

PPG 80.7 77.9
FG% 49.7%* 45.6%
3FG% 37.6% 35.9%
FT% 61.7%** 68.6%
REBOUNDS 37.8 38.2
ASSISTS 15.6 15.3
WINS/LOSS 12-6 12-2

* #1 in state

** #85th in state

Best shooting team in state(great shot selection) and nearly worst shooting free throws in state?(concentration)???  Crazy.

Should be a great game.
