2016-17 Team2Antelope Valley College will be joining a new JUCO Conference this year;  the Western State-East. Why we have Citrus College in our conference(2-3 hours brutal drive), who geographically are so close to Pasadena, Chaffey, San Bernardino and Mt Sac etc etc.  Don’t ask as the answer is not logical.  Same thing about by College of the Canyons only 39 minutes away from my house.  Please don’t ask.

With that said, below are the teams and their current records in pre-season basketball.  With only one player returning from last year’s state elite 8 team,  AVC’s had a rocky start of 1-4.  Since that time the coaching staff has rebuilt AVC around Cory Dollarhide, and the team has put together an impressive 12-2 record and has clawed its way into the statewide rankings.

Citrus College is picked to win the conference based on current records.  My pick is clear;  The team that has a conference record of 9-1 or better will bring home the banner.  That means that concentration and consistency in the next next 10 games are key.  No team can be taken for granted.
