JUCO Basketball…Upsets and Run-Away’s

Posted: November 18, 2017 in AVC Men's Basketball

Although I am attending the San Bernardino Valley Tournament for three days, I must mention that undefeated #1(NoCal) San Francisco City College was hammered last night by 9th ranked Sequoias (3-1)(NoCal) who won their third straight game with a 80-63 win.  That will scrabble things up in the ranking up north.

Now lets go to the SBVC tournament first day outcome.  This tournament is considered to be the top draw for teams this weekend.

AVC 90  Miramar 68

Antelope Valley College  walked into the kickoff game with blind folds on against Miramar Air force JV team who had not played a game this year.  No preparation possible.  AVC found at tip off that Miramar JV team had eight players with the tallest player 6’5″.  AVC immediately ran out to 9-0 lead and the coaching staff started to rotate the starters out.  I was especially happy to see three freshmen, Greg Floyd who had a slow start this year, Jalon Tinnin and Angelo Solis all have breakouts during this game.  AVC will need all of these players to win tough games this year.

Greg Floyd, 15 ppg and 4 rpg

D’Mauria Jones, 12 ppg

Julian Payton,  12 ppg

Angelo Solis, 10 ppg

Osi Nwachukwa, 9 ppg

Jalon Tinnin, ppg 8 and 7 rpg

13th ranked Antelope Valley (3-2) won their second game in a row with a 90-68 win over the Miramar JV.

Although the game got ugly at times, the AVC backup players got a lot of floor time which will help Antelope Valley in the future.  No injuries thank goodness and AVC will face West Los Angeles in the semi finals today.

West Los Angeles 74  Mt San Jacinto 58

In an unexpected run-away  game, Corey Jackson had 20 points and 6 rebounds and Prince Obeni added 17 points and 11 rebounds as West Los Angeles (4-2) picked up a 74-58 win over Mt. San Jacinto (2-5). Davon Sanders had 15 points and C.J. Hyder added 11 points in the loss for the Eagles. Mt. San Jack is working hard to put together a talented group players.

East LA 93 Riverside 71

Two undefeated teams, ELA(#2) and Riverside(#5) loaded with talent, looked to have a  battle to the end.  The first half was competitive but ELA crushed Riverside in the second half.  Frank Bertz scored 20 points and Roderick Williams added 16 points and 7 rebounds as 2nd ranked East Los Angeles (3-0) cruised past 5th ranked Riverside 93-71 to advance to the semi finals tomorrow.  Ugly second half.  So far, ELA has the deepest talent I have seen this year.

San Bernardino Valley 77 Grossmont 44

Another run-away as the home team(#1 Ranked) brutalized(#11) Grossmont.  San Bernardino (4-0) got 13 points from Kevin McNeal and Craig LeCesne added 13 points and 11 rebounds as the Wolverines cruised past 11th ranked Grossmont 77-44. Bryce Parsons had 11 points in the loss and was the only Griffin player in double figures.
