Los Angeles Valley College Steals AVC’s Conference Championship!

Posted: January 15, 2018 in AVC Men's Basketball

Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 7 p.m. AVC at Los Angeles Valley 

For me, bad losses stick with my memory lots longer than big wins.   Maybe that’s because I always expect the team to play their hardest and best every game.

Last year, AVC lost their conference championship early in the season by losing to LA Valley College in a game at LA Valley.  AVC stumbled around  that whole game.  Nothing would please LA Valley more than to do that again this year.

Lets take a look at the two teams this year;

  1. AVC 11-10  verses LA Valley  5-12
  2. AVC scoring 79.3 ppg verses LA Valley 64.3
  3. AVC giving up 67.7 ppg verses LA Valley  74.8
  4. AVC rebounding 38.3 verses LA Valley 39.2
  5. LA Valley has upset two ranked teams in their last four games, #9 San Diego Miramar and #11 Bakersfield.

To win this game on the road, AVC is going to have play solid defense both keeping LA Valley  out of the middle and to NOT give up open 3 point shots.  Add to that, LA Valley has out rebounded AVC this year and so AVC is going to have to step up and do the dirty work.

I wouldn’t be too surprised to see D’Mauria Jones double or triple teamed again.  Jones needs to then become the “Kobe Facilitator” and his teammates will pound the ball into basket until the double team is pulled and he can take back his scoring duties.

Massey Ranking gives AVC a 9.5 point advantage on this game.
