Hoops: Muir’s defense comes up big against La Salle

Muir 63, La Salle 36: This is not the same Muir High School boys basketball team that stepped onto the court a year ago. There was a stronger emphasis on defense, and it showed in the Mustangs’ 63-36 victory over La Salle in Monday’s opening round of the La Salle/Temple City Holiday Classic. La Salle (7-4) committed more turnovers (14) in the first half than points (12), and it didn’t get any better for the Lancers in the second half. La Salle’s inexperience was on display with numerous backcourt and 10-second violations, much to the chagrin of Lancers coach Steve Goldstein. Muir (5-2) applied a swarming press in the second quarter and didn’t let up. Senior Deshawn Hayes, still trying to get back into basketball shape after the football season, led all scorers with 23 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks. Fellow senior Justin Knowles had eight steals, eight points, five assists and four rebounds. Tevin Polk had 11 points and four rebounds.

  • Best team in the area…Maranatha?

    Maranatha 61 – Muir 40 Final

    Poly is 10-0 and beat La Salle 63-45. I think Maranatha plays Poly later in the year. Don’t consider yourself the best in the area yet…As Lee Corso would say “not so fast my friend”…..

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Thanks!

    Best team in the area…Maranatha?

    Great Win. PHS is the best team in the area by far. They are top 10 in LA. Sorry, to ruin that for you.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!

  • http://filmyonlinebezlimitu.pl Filmy Online

    Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Very good blog!

  • http://filmyonlinebezlimitu.pl Filmy Online

    Hello! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Thanks

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. But just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field. Great blog!

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Regards!

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    I would like to start my own blog one day. This was a really nice blog that you made here. Keep up the success :P

    I just watched Pasadena Poly play up here in Oakland, California. One of their fans told me this was their third straight tournament win. Maxpreps has them 12-0. This team is very good and must be one of the better teams in their division in Southern California.

  • Maranatha….Best team in the area. Yep…even better than Pasadena.

    If Pasadena IS truely SO much better than Maranatha, how about we schedule a scrimmage game. I think you’d be surprised by the result. Pasadena IS one of the top teams in the area but it’s a shame we can’t really know who’s better between these two unless they play each other so I guess we’ll just have to call it a tie unless your coach want’s to pick up the phone and call coach Godley. I’m sure he’d be happy to schedule something. I’ll make a prediction and say that’s just not going to happen and don’t give me the “we’ve got too much to lose so we have no reason to play that game” speech. Put up or shut up ….is all I have to say to that!
