Arroyo Valley looking for new boys basketball coach

The search is underway at Arroyo Valley for a new boys basketball  coach after coach Gerry Wright has taken a job as the head coach at Barstow College.

The hiring was mentioned by San Bernardino Valley College’s athletics twitter account and also confirmed by Arroyo Valley athletic director Matt Howell. Wright was also previously the head coach at SBVC.

According to, Wright was the head coach at Arroyo Valley the last four years, leading the Hawks to no league titles, but reaching the playoffs in each of the four years. He was only the second coach in school history, succeeding Scott Smith.

Howell said they are in the process of hiring Wright’s replacement.

Khleem Perkins picks Cal State San Bernardino

Recently graduated San Bernardino High multi-sport standout Khleem Perkins has committed to Cal State San Bernardino to play basketball. He is awaiting on clearance from the NCAA for one class he took, but SBHS coach Darin Graham believes that is a mere formality.

Perkins was an all-Sun player last season for the Cardinals, who were San Andreas League champions. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 25.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 3.0 steals. He was selected to play in the Ballislife All-American Game and in the San Bernardino County vs. Riverside County game.

“Cal State was on my mind the whole time,” Perkins said. “They have a great program. I’ve been watching them since I was little.”

Perkins got a lot of family to come to games in high school, and now they’ll get the chance to see him play in college, although that wasn’t a huge motivating factor.

“They all just wanted me to go to school and get an education. They didn’t care about the basketball, as long as there was school,” he said.

Perkins believes he will respond well to Cal State San Bernardino coach Jeff Oliver’s high-energy, tough-love approach.

“I got that before (from San Bernardino coach Darin Graham). More than four years. When I would go over there in seventh grade, he would get on me like I was in high school,” Perkins said. “I’m used to it.”

Perkins played the 1, 2 or 3 in high school, but expects to be a guard in college. But he also wants to learn as a freshman.

“I want to get used to the program. I don’t want to rush out there. I’m just working getting used to everybody,” he said.

Johnson out as athletic director at Eisenhower, resigns as boys basketball coach

From Staff Writer Clay Fowler:

Decorated coach Steve Johnson will not return as Eisenhower High School’s athletic director or boys basketball coach this coming school year, according to Rialto Unified School District director of communications Syeda Jafri.

The former Sun Coach of the Year returned to his athletic director position briefly after recovering from gunshot wounds suffered Jan. 21 at an inner-city park in San Bernardino.

The 47-year-old Johnson was not asked to return as athletic director by newly appointed Eisenhower principal Scott Sparks. Johnson chose not to return as boys basketball coach for a program he turned into one of the area’s best over the last 19 years.

“Both the new Rialto and Eisenhower principals opened the athletic directors’ positions up going toward a different direction,” Jafri said. “Mr. Johnson chose not to return to coach basketball for next school year. The district has not opened the position yet.”

Sparks was not available for comment. Johnson did not respond to phone messages.

Former Fontana High School basketball player Demetrius Walker, who played at the University of New Mexico last season, has transferred to Grand  Canyon University in Arizona.

Grand Canyon, which will compete in its first season in the Western Athletic Conference this year, is coached by former NBA player Dan Majerle.

“We are excited to have a player of Demetrius’ ability that has played at both New Mexico and Arizona State,” said Majerle in a press release. “It is good to have him here at GCU, as he brings with him a lot of experience and can score the basketball. He will be big for our team next season having a guy that we can go to. ”

Last season, Walker, a 6–foot-2 guard, averaged 5.0 points and 15.4 minutes per game for New Mexico, the Mountain West Conference champions. Walker graduated from New Mexico in May and will pursue a graduate degree from Grand Canyon.

San Bernardino High’s Demetrius Overstreet finds a college home

Recently graduated San Bernardino High basketball player Demetrius Overstreet has figured out where he will play college basketball next year: Oregon State. As reported to me by SBHS coach Darin Graham, he won’t be on scholarship just yet, but Overstreet will receive one of the program’s walk-on spots with the team.

Last year, Overstreet, a 5-foot-11 guard, averaged 10.1 points, 4.7 assists and 1.5 steals for the San Andreas League champions.He scored in double figures in six of his final eight games last season.
