I made the right choice covering PHS soccer instead of catching PHS basketball, which blew away Arcadia. Muir won big, too. ….

I had wondered back and forth on Tuesday whether to cover Arcadia at PHS boys soccer (both teams unbeaten in league) or catch Arcadia at PHS boys basketball. I had a feeling PHS hoops would win but what if the Apaches pulled off the upset? After all, Arcadia took Muir to overtime so the possibly definitely was there.

In the end, I wanted to see boys soccer since I hadn’t had a chance to see any soccer yet. PHS boys soccer remain unbeaten in league after its 2-1 win over Arcadia. I wondered whether to drive around and catch the boys basketball game. If I had done that and stayed for the game, I would have seen PHS have its way with Arcadia on the court. Pasadena won, 82-35. Arcadia scored 8 points in the first quarter, 16 in the second quarter, 7 in the third quarter and 4 in the final quarter. Yup, I made the right call. When PHS boys soccer plays host to CV on Friday it’ll be for a right to remain in first place while the boys basketball game later that night will mean one team will no longer remain in first place. The boys basketball game that night is at 7 p.m. I”m already scheduled to cover Bishop Amat at La Salle on Friday night, but maybe I’ll switch and catch the Bulldogs in action. Looks like I’ll be wondering again Thursday about what to do.

In case you’re wondering, Muir won tonight as well in pretty big fashion, Muir beat Burroughs, 88-40 behind Taturs Mayberry’s dominating performance, scoring 42 points and 12 rebounds. Looks like Mayberry finally got rid of the stomach flu. Andre Frazier also had a double-double with 18 points and 15 rebounds. Muir remains undefeated in the Pacific League, too. I’m telling you, that Muir-PHS game will be a SHOWDOWN!
