Las Amat Chicas de Victory …

Amat downed Lynwood, 57-52. A shock to many outside the SGV, to be sure. Gahr coach Al Dorogusker had this to say about Lynwood this week to the L.A. Times …

“Lynwood is the best team in Southern California,” Dorogusker said after his team was beaten by Brea, 83-38, on Wednesday in the second round of the playoffs. “I think they’re better than [top-seeded] Long Beach Poly.”

QUICK ARAM THOUGHT: Dorogusker, Dorogusker, Dorogusker, you sir should leave the picking to the sports writers. You can’t make blanket statements like that without seeing Amat or Troy or whomever you haven’t seen. Truth is, LB Poly, Amat, Troy, Lynwood and Brea would probably take turns on each other. Back to the game … great turnout by the Amat fans. The Chicas had more fans than Lynwood and it helped. Not enough for one of the refs, but enough for the team. I’ve been to almost every Amat win in the postseason for the four seasons and I can tell you this one ranks right up there with the state titles. Unlike past postseasons, Amat was an underdog very early in the playoffs. Not a big a underdog, but an underdog nonetheless. But this team has one very important thing that can out-do talent, it’s called savvy. Oh sure, Amat is talented. Candice Brown and McCarthy are as good as you’ll find, but I’ve never seen a team like Lynwood that can throw waves of players at you. It also helps that Amat coach Richard Wiard went LeDuc on another big name opponent. Watch as much high school hoop as me and you’ll know we have two of the very best in Wiard and LeDuc in this Valley. They’re worth 5-points on their own.
