Compton 96 Grossmont 70

Posted: November 17, 2018 in AVC Men's Basketball

Compton crushes Grossmont.  Goes 2-0 in tournament and faces AVC TOMORROW.

When you look back at a losing game’s statistics after a good night night’s sleep, the game you saw the night before looks a bit different than you remember.

It’s been a few years since I have seen a JUCO team bring in six university players(UC Riverside D1), (UTEP D1), (Penn State D1), (Army West Point D1), CSUDH D2 and Academy of Arts(NAIA) which put last year’s starters on the bench.  East Los Angeles did that it this year.  Its a talented team.  Adding to the talent, add size as well;  Three 6’9″, Two 6’8″, Two 6’5″, One 6’7″.

With this talent and size, you would expect ELA to win every game by 25? But, AVC was leading by 9 points in the second half and it took shooting 91% from the free throw line by ELA to win the game.

AVC team played an excellent game.

  1. F  Gianni Brown, 24 points, 10 rebounds
  2. S Surako Folling Jr, 15 points
  3. S Stephon Bell, 13 points, 4 rebounds
  4. F Elie Ghomsi, 10 points, 3 rebounds
  5. F Jalen Riley, 6 assists

Now AVC will take on  undefeated home team San Bernardino, #6 who beat Grossmont by 47…117-70.  Is AVC ready to bounce back after it’s tough loss?

 

Final…AVC 80 ELA 84

AVC IS IMPROVING EVERY GAME! AVC gave #1 East LA and it 7 D1 kickbacks every thing they wanted!   ELA Played one of their best games of the year. Their free throwing was outstanding as well as their rebounding.  AVC ever gave up.  More on the stat when they become available.

Halftime AVC 34 ELA 37

Gianni Brown, for AVC solid on both ends of court.  Competitive game!

3 p.m. West LA verses Compton

The teams that AVC will play this weekend…#1 East LA, #6 San Bernardino Valley, Compton…are bigger, higher ranked, and more experience than AVC.  The only chance AVC has to be competitive is for the young  team to;

  1. Rebound(Blocking Out)
  2. Energy
  3. Defense
  4. Shooting free throws

i.e..  freshman will have to grow up FAST!

AVC Goes Up in the Polls

Posted: November 12, 2018 in AVC Men's Basketball

This week-end will be quite a test for the young AVC team.  How much will they grow up?

14. Antelope Valley (2-1): The Marauders move up one spot in the rankings despite not stepping foot on the court last week. Antelope Valley picked up two wins in the opening weekend at the Ventura Tournament and had the weekend off. This week, Antelope Valley will have their hands full as the Marauders will face off against top ranked East Los Angeles on Friday, follow that up against 6th ranked San Bernardino on Saturday and then face Compton on Sunday at the Alvin Hunter Classic in San Bernardino.
