VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: San Bernardino pulls out a 55-53 win over Moreno Valley

You’ll see in some of the highlights the frenetic pace, and that was how the game was. There were no easy trips up the floor, except in transition. The pace was especially crazy in the fourth quarter, when San Bernardino outscored Moreno Valley 20-15.

San Bernardino High wrestling continues Mountain Valley League success

San Bernardino’s Isiah Ferrera was named the lower weight MVP of the Mountain Valley League and was one of the Cardinals’ four individual wrestlers to win a league title in their respective weight classes.
San Bernardino CardinalsMikey Ornelas (115 lbs), Aldo Barragan (120 lbs) and Alexander Mattison (195 lbs) were the others to win individual titles for the Cardinals.
The Cardinals coach Mark Clark was also named the league’s coach of the year.
Last week, the Cardinals won its first team league title in over 30 years and competed its first undefeated season in 50 years.
San Bernardino will compete in the CIF Duals on Feb. 7.

San Bernardino High’s Alex Mattison succeeding at wrestling

One wrestler who had a successful tournament but didn’t win his weight class at Inland Empire TOC was San Bernardino High junior Alex Mattison, the all-Sun running back who is in his first season wrestling.
“I wanted to stay active, but I wanted to do something new,” Mattison said. “I played basketball last year.”
Mattison was seeded second and finished second in the 195-pound weight class on Saturday, a week after winning the Raymond Willemstein Invitational at Ontario High.
Mattison admits he has another reason for wrestling. Adding another sport to his resume, and hopefully one at which he can be successful, gives him a better chance of winning the Ken Hubbs Award as a senior, he reasons. Mattison also runs for the track and field team in the spring.

Did San Bernardino football deserve to go to the playoffs?

San Bernardino High football coach Jeff Imbriani was pretty upset on Sunday (and probably still is today) that his team with a 7-3 record didn’t make the Eastern Division playoffs, while a 3-7 Apple Valley team did.

Did they deserve to go?

Well, based on the criteria that the CIF-SS uses, probably not.

Criteria utilized by the At-Large Selection Committee:
(a) Head-to-head competition of teams under consideration (4 points)
(b) Overall strength of the league from which the team is entered (1 point)
(c) Overall win-loss record (1 point)
(d) Strength against common opponents (1 point)
(e) Strength of schedule (2 points, using overall win-loss record of opponents)
(f) Free lance teams will be part of the pool for the filling of at-large berths

But should that be the criteria?
I would argue, no.
Schedule strength is essentially in there twice: with the strength of the league and strength of schedule.
How do you gauge strength of schedule? CIF-SS says it’s by win-loss record of opponents. But is that really accurate? With all due respect to Big Bear, playing an 8-2 Big Bear team is not the same as playing an 8-2 Upland team. But, teams would get the same credit in strength of schedule for playing either team.
And if you’re gauging win-loss record, is having a 7-3 vs. a 3-7 record only worth 1 point in evaluating teams? I’d argue that’s worth at least 2 points, if not more. If you’re evaluating an 8-2 team vs. a 1-9 team, is that really only worth 1 point in the discussion?
Here’s another one to consider: best team defeated. Not best team played, but best team defeated.
None of Apple Valley’s 3 wins came against a team with a winning record: the best teams being 4-6 Granite Hills and 4-6 Victor Valley, teams that didn’t make the playoffs.
As for San Bernardino, most of their opponents weren’t very good. But, the Cardinals gave Vista Del Lago its ONLY LOSS. Vista Del Lago won the Mountain Valley League and went 9-1. Shouldn’t a big part of the equation be who you’ve beaten not just who you’ve played?
