Big Baseline League boys basketball games coming up

"0110_SPO_IDB_L-BOYSBB-02-JCM"

Most teams are playing non-league games today in conjunction with Martin Luther King Day, but there will be some compelling games coming up later in the week.

It’s a big week in the Baseline League as Chino Hills (12-3, 2-0) has games against its top two contenders in Damien (14-2, 2-0) and Etiwanda (12-5, 2-1).

The Huskies are coming off a 2-1 showing in an event at Missouri State University, the marquee game there being a showdown with Oak Hills Academy (Va.) that Chino Hills lost in the fourth quarter.

Here’s the schedule for this week’s Baseline League contests:

Wednesday’s game
Damien at Chino Hills

Friday’s games
Etiwanda at Chino Hills
Damien at Los Osos
Upland at Rancho Cucamonga

Keith Richardson deserves Pomona football coaching nod

"1205_SPT_LDN-L-PARACLETE-POMONA"

It seems there is another football coaching opening every week.

There are vacancies at Diamond Ranch, Chino, Alta Loma and Claremont with Pomona also trying to decide what to do after its coach Aaron Jamieson was put on administrative leave right before the Red Devils first playoff game.

The Pomona position should be a no-brainer. Keith Richardson deserves that position.

When Jamieson was told to go away, the players were given the opportunity to vote for who they wanted to lead them the rest of the way. They chose Richardson, who had been the defensive coordinator. That spoke volumes.

All Richardson did was steer the team to the Mid-Valley Division championship. You can’t do better than that. Yes the Red Devils had some marvelously talented players, but Richardson kept the team on course when the adversity could have spelled the end to that title hope.

Let’s hope the right decision is forthcoming.

Chaffey’s Toure Boyd commits to South Carolina

Chaffey College defensive back Toure Boyd liked the SEC enough that he has committed to South Carolina site unseen.

He will visit the school later this month but made a verbal commitment early today.

Boyd, a graduate of Rancho Cucamonga High School, grew up in Birmingham, Ala., this the SEC roots. He moved to California in the eighth grade but that didn’t change his loyalty.

“I always wanted to play in the SEC,” he said. “When some of the other offers dried up I decided that was where I wanted to go.”

Boyd, who played at College of the Desert as a freshman and at Chaffey last season, was also considering Southern Miss and Arizona, both of which he visited. The Arizona offer went away, as did one from Utah.

That opened the door for South Carolina.

Boyd plans to major kinesiology and wants to be able to do something with sports once he graduates.

“I want to be able to give back to kids,” he said.

Last year Boyd recorded 60 tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery.
