Gabe Solache, 5’10”, 150, Guard, Sophomore

JL0_7217Gabe Solache, 5’10”, 150 guard, graduated from Morningside High School in Inglewood, CA in 2014. He missed two seasons since HS graduation for personal reasons/academic qualifications and played one season…2015-16…at College of the Desert. He was a dominant player during that year at COD where he shot 56-132 three balls(44.0%), started 22 games, scored as many as 29 points per game. He scored 18.0 PPG in the conference season during his edibility year.
With family in the Antelope Valley, he decided to transfer to AVC and is currently enrolled at AVC to get caught up on his academics.
In talking with Gabe, he says his main goal is to get a scholarship at a four year university and to get a college degree. “I am willing to do anything and play anywhere to be successful and to help AVC win.” “I know AVC always has top teams who place their players with scholarships.” “I think I can help them with my strengths; Great shooting and speed.” “I know that I am going to have to improve in strength and defense to get playing time at AVC and the four year level.” “I ready to do that.”
Solache basketball-wise reminds me of last year’s long range shooter for AVC, Cory Dollarhide who is received a full ride scholarship at Lewis and Clark University. Looks like a great pickup for AVC!

It should not have been a surprise but Gabe Solache had a great JUCO Summer Shootout.  He had long minutes at all four games at both the point and shooting guard.  Great shooting from beyond the arc, slashing into paint for layups.  Played like a sophomore.

Sophomore Gabe Salache, 5’10” shooter who transferred to Antelope Valley College in the 2016-17 Spring semester, from College of the Desert, has started out things at AVC with a bang!  He transferred to AVC with the expectation of being able get additional exposure from Universities for a scholarship.  He played in High School against Cory Dollarhide who recently received a full ride scholarship to Lewis and Clark University after his two years with AVC.  Gabe notified me that in both semesters, Spring and Summer, he pulled off a 4.0 grade point average and is meeting/exceeding the academic requirements for a  scholarship at the university level.
Gabe is getting very excited for the season to begin so he can show his talents both academically and basketball-wise to the University Coaches.  Of course he is looking forward to adding to his resume a State Tournament visit  with AVC who is looking for its third straight run to that level.
