I’ll start by saying it was the first girls basketball game I covered at Rosemead High. But here’s my beef. Rosemead clinched the Mission Valley League title outright Wednesday night with a 42-27 win over Arroyo, and the Panthers can’t even get better than a decent sized home crowd? Are you kidding me? Rosemead has won seven of its nine last league championships. Don’t tell me ‘Mead fans are just used to this kind of treatment. What, are they waiting for the playoffs. These girls deserved better. The crowd did get bigger when the boys game started, but no doubt this season belongs to the Panthers, who now are 18-4 and 9-0 in league. It was also Rosemead’s second straight league title. Granted, the game wasn’t all that pretty to see, what with Arroyo (14-11, 6-3) shooting 23 percent on the night. But at the very least you should have gone to see one of the area’s best shooting guards in senior Evelyn Ramirez, pictured below. She scored 23 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and had seven steals. The Panthers no doubt will miss Ramirez, a four-year letterman, after she graduates, but not to worry. Rosemead will have another future four-year letterman in fellow freshman Melody Gauthier, daughter of Rosemead coach Jay Gauthier. Melody scored 12 points and went 3 for 4 from the 3-point line. And believe me, those 3-pointers were way out in the boonies, college stuff right there.
