AVC 71 Victor Valley 69…They Wanted It More

Posted: January 20, 2018 in AVC Men's Basketball

AVC didn’t shoot it that well and they were playing against a bigger, more athletic team but, they just wanted the game more.  AVC out rebounded Victor Valley 45-34 doing that hard dirty work and it led to a 71-69 win against a ranked team that beat them two weeks ago in a pre-season tournament.

It wasn’t easy as four of AVC’s team didn’t practice this week due to injuries.   Two of the four players(Osi Nwachukwa and Julian Payton) couldn’t start but gutted it out when they got into the game.  Both players scored in double figures an Osi led in rebounding with 11.  Just plain toughness.

Finally although D’Mauria Jones has had better games,  all he did tonight was put in the winning shot with one second left, led in scoring with 19 and pulled down 8 rebounds and blocked 3 key shots.

More tomorrow.
