Local teams all over men’s JC rankings

The California Community College poll is loaded with Inland Empire teams.

San Bernardino Valley split games last week but it’s win over then-No. 3 Mt. San Jacinto was more impressive than its loss to now No. 19-Chaffey was disappointing because the Wolverines moved up two spots.

Chaffey was in the rankings much opf the year but dropped out after a loss to Victor Valley two weeks ago. Two wins last week, including the one over SBVC, were enough to propel the Panthers back in.

CMS men drop three spots in poll

The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men slipped a bit from No. 12 to No. 15 in the D3Hoops.com poll released on Monday. The Stags (15-1) were dealt their first loss on Saturday falling to Whittier 88-85 in double overtime.

That’s not the worst thing that can happen. A loss takes some of the pressure off and sometimes helps a team refocus. CMS will get anothet shot at Whittier anyway and the SCIAC automatic playoff bid is decided in the conference tournament anyway.

The Stags were also coming off a high from the previous game when they slipped past local Pomona-Pitzer on a last-second layup the previous game. So a letdown was not all that unexpected.

Here’s this week’s poll:

1 Middlebury (24) 16-0 623 1
2 UW-Whitewater (1) 17-1 595 5
3 Hope 16-1 549 7

6 MIT 16-1 488 3
7 Amherst 15-2 482 4
8 Cabrini 16-1 446 10
9 Franklin and Marshall 16-1 409 13
10 Mary Hardin-Baylor 16-1 403 6
11 Whitworth 14-3 339 9
12 Birmingham-Southern 16-1 323 14
13 Williams 15-3 296 15
14 William Paterson 16-2 256 18
15 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps 15-1 247 12
16 UW-Stevens Point 14-4 222 11
17 New York University 14-1 192 23
18 Eastern Connecticut 14-1 155 25
19 Wooster 14-3 147 24

22 Wheaton (Ill.) 14-3 123 22
23 Wabash 14-3 115 16

Claremont High grad honored for her play at APU

Claremont High School graduate Amber Williams, a senior at Azusa Pacific University, has been named Golden State Athletic Conference women’s basketball player of the week.

The 6-foot center scored 51 points and grabbed 33 rebounds as No. 13-ranked Azusa Pacific won both of its conference games last week. She shot 16-for-35 (.457) from the field and 19-for-23 (.826) at the line and recorded double-doubles in both games.

Williams tallied 30 points and 19 rebounds at Point Loma Nazarene and 21 points and 14 rebounds against San Diego Christian.

She leads the GSAC in scoring and rebounding and has 12 double-doubles for the season.

Cal State player still hospitalized

Cal State San Bernardino senior basketball player Jessica De La Cruz remains hospitalized at Loma Linda following a nasty fall in the second half of Saturday’s game against Cal State east bay.

De La Cruz, who had been averaging 5 points and 2.6 assists, took a tumble as teams broke for the other end of the court after an errant East Bay shot. She got bumped by an East Bay player and fell backward, only to hit her head on the knee of another player before htting the court.

She had a seizure which lasted several minutes and was eventually taken out on a stretcher.

Cal State coach Kevin Becker went to see her this afternoon and said she is doing better but more tests will be taken in the next few days. He didn’t want to go into further detail because of student-privacy laws,

 De La Cruz is from Northern California but Becker said she did have family in attendance at the game.

 

Chaffey football player off to New Mexico

Chaffey College offensive lineman Bryan Oldenkamp is headed to the University of New Mexico. Oldenkamp only played one year at Chaffey so he will have three years of eligibility left at his new school.

Oldenkamp, a 6-foot-4, 280-pounder, is already at New Mexico so he will be eligible to participate in spring football there.

Oldenkamp, a graduate of Hesperia High School, started all 10 games for the Panthers at right tackle.
