Above, is the flyer for Saturday’s all-star girls basketball game at Arroyo Valley Coach Michael Anderson will hold his second Best of the Best Girls All-Star Basketball Game on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Arroyo Valley. It’s a game he started when he was at Rialto.

I hope not all of these players show up, because it will be difficult to get that many players playing time in the game.

The North team will be coached by Bloomington Christian coach Dawnesha Buckner, and the preliminary roster included 20 players from San Bernardino County, including from Bloomington Christian, Arroyo Valley, Jurupa Hills, San Gorgonio, Colony, Grand Terrace, Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino, Summit and Carter. The team also has players from Ganesha and Pico Rivera El Rancho on the squad.
The South team is largely from Riverside County, but also includes Chino Hills players.

VIDEO: Final seconds of regulation of Cajon girls basketball’s loss to Ventura

I didn’t put together full highlights of Tuesday’s 46-40 overtime game, won by host and No. 1 seed Ventura over No. 5 Cajon. But I wanted to post this. It shows the chance Ventura had to put the game away, up by one (and facing a one-and-one) with 7.8 seconds left.
Then a chance for Cajon to win before Tyla Turner is fouled with 2.2 seconds to play, keeping her from getting a shot off, but enabling her to go to the line. She missed the first, then made the one she really needed, the second. She then nearly had a steal on the inbounds pass, but the inbounder stepped in and denied a shot as time expired. In overtime, Cajon ran out of gas (and personnel) and lost, ending a great season.

Is a 26-0 game in soccer excessive?

What constitutes an excessive blowout that crosses the line for good sportsmanship?
Earlier this season, the discussion was about Arroyo Valley girls basketball’s 161-2 win over Bloomington.
While it doesn’t involve a local team, but what about Hemet Tahquitz’s 26-0 boys soccer victory over Los Angeles Summit View West?
Which is worse? Well, the girls basketball game probably should never have been scheduled by the athletic directors, but the soccer was a Division 5 playoff game.
The girls basketball score was 104-0 at halftime, and the leading scorer in the game, Tamera Trigg, scored 43 points compared to her season average of about 27.
In the boys soccer game, it wasn’t reported what the score was at halftime.   Marcos Rojo led the way for Tahquitz with seven goals. He had scored only 11 on the season before that. But the team had 14 different players score goals, and two others had assists.
So are they both bad? And if so, which is worse? To be honest, I’d really need to see tape of both games. I’m sure something could’ve been done in both instances to hold the game down a little, but I don’t exactly know how excessive it was.
I once reported about the aftermath of a game now nearly 20 years ago, a girls soccer game between Bonita and Ganesha. I believe the final score was 19-0 in favor of Bonita, in a league game. The problem was, the  coach left his star player, Kendra Payne, in the game for too long and she set a CIF-SS record with 13 goals in the game (which I believe still stands).  The consensus seemed to be that this was excessive, because they were scoring goals just so Payne could get the record.
But 26-0 and 161-2? Whether excessive or not, it didn’t do the winning teams much good. Arroyo Valley girls basketball lost in the first round of the playoffs, while Tahquitz lost in the next round to Rialto. Did those teams get what they deserved? Some might say so, but I don’t think so, just that playing that kind of opponent isn’t really going to help in the long (or short) run.
