Hitting 1,000 points is hard enough to do when you’re in high school or a a four-year college and you have four years to do it.
Sophomore guard Victor Joseph of Chaffey College eclipsed the 1,000 point mark on Wednesday night in the Panthers 101-62 Foothill Conference victory over Victor Valley.
Joseph, a Rancho Cucamonga High product, entered the game seven points short of the mark and hit a 3-pointer with 17:04 left in the first half to hit the milestone.
Joseph is only the second Panther to score 1,000 points in coach Jeff Klein’s 15 seasons. The first was Winston Robinson who did so in 2009.
Joseph is averaging 21 points a game for the first-place Panthers.
The USC men’s basketball team has been one of the biggest surprises in college basketball this season. And it has been a local player proving instrumental in that showing.
Sophomore guard Jordan McLaughlin, out of Etiwanda High School, is averaging a team-high 12.6 points a game. He had nine points and 10 assists in the 80-61 win over UCLA on Thursday.
A night later McLaughlin was taking a game at his old high school, sitting court side as the Eagles squared off with Damien.
Here’s what he had to say about the showing of his team this season:
Cal State San Bernardino junior right-hander Tyler Wells has been named California Collegiate Athletic Association Baseball Pitcher of the Week for Jan. 29-31.
Wells was stellar in his first outing for the Coyotes, throwing six shutout inning and striking out 12 in 1-0 win over Sonoma State in game one of Saturday’s season-opening doubleheader.
He struck out the first five batters he faced and the first eight outs of the ball game were by strikeout. Wells threw a no-hitter through five innings and after allowing just two hits and one walk, exited the game in the top of the seventh.
