Which Team Will Play Tonight?

Posted: February 21, 2018 in AVC Men's Basketball


The 2017-18 team doesn’t seem to quite know who they are or what they are supposed to do. This is a team that crushed a Ventura team the should have beaten the undefeated (at the time) San Bernardino after a lack-luster loss to DeAnza. It’s a team that fought No. 3 Citrus to a three point loss. It’s also a team that has lead at halftime by as many as 16 points to some very good teams, only to lose. A team that has given up double digit leads with less than 10 minutes to go to lose.

But coach John Taylor, like last season, only wanted a chance at the playoffs because he feels this team might be very much like last year’s team that went from the 14th spot to the semifinals.

If they do, it will probably be in large part because of first team All-Conference performers D’Mauria Jones and Osi Nwachukwu. Jones is averaging nearly 20 points a game this season, while Nwachukwu leads in rebounds and can easily get the offense started.Surako Follings Jr., Julian Payton (threes), Angelo Solis and Gregory Floyd Jr. (underneath) will probably have their mark on things as well.

Stay tuned.  The games starts in 2 1/2 hours.
