AVC ran its freshmen players in all kinds of ways. Good experience  for the young uns.  AVC goes 3-1 for the weekend.

AVC 68. Porterville 34

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

An overmatched Porterville saw a bigger and more talented AVC team.  AVC hit 5-3’s in three minutes in the second half.  Improved turnover’s for AVC.

AVC 63 Bakersfield 56

AVC had massive amounts of turnovers in their first game but their size and depth finally wore Bakersfield down.

Saddleback 50 AVC 44

AVC lost their second game to Saddleback due to rebounding(Saddleback played strong in the middle with a 7’0″, 6″9″, 6’8″ and 6’7″).  In the second half, AVC three point shooting went cold due good Saddleback defense and AVC ran gas which led to poor long range  shooting.

Additionally AVC in both game shot free throws abasically(25%)?  Nothing new here as early in the season each year the looking terrible from the free throw line.

AVC overall did very well against both teams with their freshman dominated team who has played together less than a month.
