SAN DIMAS
— San Dimas high school boys basketball coach Bruce Robbins may not have all the answers, but he may have figured the solution to solving pesky Baldwin Park — take away one of its two high-powered scorers. While Baldwin Park’s Fernie Morelos scored a team-high 17 points, San Dimas’ K.J. Byrd smothered the Braves’ other big scorer for the second straight time, holding Tomas Montes to just five points — his second worst game of the season in San Dimas’ 70-56 victory on Friday.

Montes, who averages a team-best 16 points, had his worst scoring game against San Dimas in their first meeting, scoring two points in a 65-54 loss.
Even though Chris Barbatos’ four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and game-high 21 points for the Saints obviously had something to do with it, Byrd’s dirty work didn’t go unnoticed.
“Baldwin Park is an explosive team, they’re averaging 70 points and we held them to under 60 both times,” Saints coach Bruce Robbins said. “We know (Montes) is a great shooter, but we’ve got some length that we feel interfere’s with his ability to get shots off, and he (Byrd) did a terrific job of not letting him get free looks.
“Morelos is a load, he made some difficult shots in transition, but that was the game-plan we used against them the first time, and we were able to execute it again for the most part.”
With San Dimas leading 28-24 at the half, Saints forward Kevin Kolbeck was key in the second half also, finishing several back-door-passes to end up with 15 points, 13 of which came in the second half.
But even Braves coach Marc Hart realizes that the difference in both losses was Byrd.
“Tomas didn’t play well in either game,” Hart said. “Give the kid (Byrd) credit, we couldn’t get shots for him. The kid just played excellent defense.”
Baldwin Park (19-3, 4-2) is having a terrific season, winners of three December tournaments and a huge 63-61 victory over three-time defending league champion Northview that ended the Vikings’ 31-game winning streak, and put the Braves back in the league title hunt.
But San Dimas (14-8, 5-1) has the inside track, and can all but wrap it up with a victory on Wednesday at home against Northview, whom it suffered its only league loss, 59-56.
“You don’t get a chance to relax and feel comfortable with anything,” Robbins said. “There are still a lot of games to play, Northview beat us the first time and they present different problems for us.
“But it was nice to get this one. Kevin played a great game all night long, and Chris is a good shooter. Once he starts shooting well, if you’re not going to guard him he’s going to knock shots down.”
Baldwin Park received 10 points from Jimmy Ramirez and nine from Eddie Gamboa, but the Braves’ hopes of winning their first league title since 1984 are fading.
“It’s not over,” Hart said. “I just told the guys to win the final four games and let the chips fall where they may. They (San Dimas) still have Northview and we have Northview again, so who knows?”

  • wrestling fan

    Wrestling was awesome last night. I believe that Northview beat San Dimas. And i sure Fred will be doing a blog for wrestling. Maybe today? League does end next week. Fred give us update on all SGV leagues. KEEP WRESTLING!! Does anyone know the score from the san dimas/nv dual?

  • kurmugin

    What the hell is with Amat’s lazy susan choice of leagues? They bounce all over the place in the leagues they compete in and the divisions in whwich they contend in playoffs. Pac5 in football and division 4 in soccer for example. Where are they in basketball and baseball? Who makes these decisions? Using what criteria. It seems as if you are Pac5 in one you ought to be that in all sports or vice versa. What gives? Look at the way their girls soccer team is crushing their poor del rey league foes and man (you should excuse the expression, no derision intended) handling everyone else. These girls are playing at a level far superior to their competition. It is obvious they could win in any division and probably will. The sole apparent challenge might be Los Altos, on a very good day, in Division 4 playoffs, if they get to the finals, where Amat will surely be.

  • Northview MOM

    Last night was an awesome Wrestling Dual between Northview and San Dimas….ending score 54-18

  • SGV hooper

  • Aaron

    I’d have to ask my father about Bonita losing last night as I’m sure he attended the game. In my humble opinion this loss may be good for the team because then they will have something to fuel them the rest of the season.

  • hahaha

    Aaron – r u that clueless. Their schedule the rest of the way is a joke. They don’t need fuel. Then there is CIF where, again, they don’t need fuel. They blew a chance to go undefeated and could have to share the Miramonte title with CO now. All because they can’t hit free throws. For a team so fundamentally sound, I don’t know why they struggle so much with free throws. Same thing almost cost them the game against Damien.

  • Aaron

    Not clueless, just not in California anymore. From the games I caught that is a huge problem, they shoot just fifty percent from the line and they beat Chino Hills, they shoot just fifty percent from the line that game with San Dimas is a blow out. Why they can’t hit free throws I’ll never understand because with the Eckler teams that I remember back in school they shot closer to 70% if not greater from the line.

  • COChargerfan

    Aaronin the first game CO went 8 for 24 from the line, turned the ball over maybe 15 times and got beat physicallywhich has a lot to do with the first two items. Last night, CO played very physical including rebounding the ball well and in my opinion this contributed to Bonitas woesplus Bonita got whistled early for the same aggressive play that they got away with in the first game. BTW, Miller fouled out with around a minute to play. And, a lot of the missed free throws in crunch time were by one player who, by the way, was the same player that played very well in the first game. I think we should just give credit where credit is duein the first game Bonita played better and in the rematch it was COs turn to shine. Both teams are good teams so there is no shame in exchanging victories.

  • LancerNation

    COChargerfan,

    How many points did your son Jaden score last night? I don’t see him in the box score. Is he injured? Although I heard rumors of that actually your son plays basketball on the freshmen team. Why didn’t your son play football?

    Some other walks of life say you are the original CoBro that used to post at the beginning of this blog’s conception when Mike the Clone, Joe Amat, Frank Corona, Anymouse, etc. would banter with you.

    What gives? Who are you mystery man? You have so many damn opinions to us in Lancer Nation but seems to me your farther away then closer to the inner sanctum of high school athletes at Charter Oak especially football!

  • Aaron

    Thanks for the Analysis COCFan. The Chargers won the game so congratulations.

  • COChargerfan

    So “LancerNation”…first question I have, is that your legal name? If not, aren’t you hiding behind a blog name? Second, I seem to recall that the true blue Amat fans DESPISE the “Nation” moniker…so I don’t suppose that guys like Joe Amat and AMAT 73 actually support YOUR opinion. A lot of people know who I amso who are you? Do you have kids on any teams or are you just an alumnus who just cant seem to graduate from your glory days of high school? Now, Im not saying that one shouldnt support their alma mater but just do it quietly and not come off on other people like you really make a difference in the success of any of the Amat teamsbecause you dont (and neither do I at CO).

    And Im not a reincarnation of some other guys as I just started posting over the past 6 months or so.

    And Jaden is not my kid but he is a very nice young man that I have had the pleasure to spend some time around and get to know. BTW, he didnt play last night but hopefully will be back next week. My kid is a junior and hes a role player on a senior laden varsity teamif he continues to work hard hell get his chance next year. He also plays baseball. Ive said many times that my kid doesnt play football and I deny being an insiderbut I do know a few parents and occasionally had a chance to speak with them and some of the players…so are you a coach (I really doubt it)? If not, what makes you such an insider?

    Finally, Fred J puts this blog up to allow people from ANYWHERE and not just AMAT to share information, general garbage, sometimes inappropriate crap and even OPINIONSso if you dont like itDONT READ it!

  • ballfan

    CHRIS ADAMS HAD 21 POINTS NOT 18! AND HE HAD A MONSTER DUNK IN THE GAME. GREAT CREDIT TO CALVIN, BUT C’MON GIVE MORE CREDIT TO CHRIS ADAMS THE GUY IS A HARDWORKING KID WITH A GREAT WORK ETHIC.GIVE HIM THE CREDIT HE DESERVES!

  • in the know!

    Jaden Radcliffe walked out on his team during the 3rd quarter against Los Altos. He was frustrated that he had only 2pts up to that point and started forcing some shots. Coaches sat him down to relax him and didn’t appreciate it and walked out.

    Kacy Barlow had a big night vs Chino scoring 40 pts and pulling down 15 boards. Barlow tried to play for D-Ranch and the cifss ruled him ineligible. If he would have transferred to Mater Dei the cifss would send a limo to pick him up. Mater Dei gets 3 new transfers this year 2 are seniors and the cifss said great more money for us in the playoffs. LVL has a completely new team once they hired Carl Cooper and everyone is eligible. It pays off being a private school and the public-private should be separated. Bishop Amat must not be paying their cifss graft money and they could not get Wallace Gonzales eligible.

    Aaron-first and foremost hope wherever you are you are safe and wish you god’s speed on return.

    CO/BHS game has been well described here, in a 3 pt game a shot or call here or there and who knows. Bottom line CO played very well and earned every bit of the win, Barr stepped up! For CO Chargerfan sake #5 from BHS not “naming names” had another solid game and did what he could to keep BHS in it. FT’s hurt no doubt but Miller and again #5 did not get to line?

    CO BRO and Chargerfan, the comments are great, we all support our teams as it should be, as for AMAT…I know BHS beat them the last two years not sure about CO? FYI, I dont have a kid at either school.

    Is anyone else sick of all the boo hooing for Glendora going to the Baseline League next year? Weren’t they in the Baseline for years? They asked for relief from the Sierra League and they got it. Did they want to choose where they got to go or what division they get to play in? Who do they think they are Mater Dei? The lesson here? Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

    SGV430 Ouuut!!

    just because it’s still CALLED the Baseline league doesn’t mean it’s the SAME baseline league. Back then the Baseline was GHS, Claremont, Chino, Don Lugo, Damien, and Upland. A little different travel than Upland, Los Osos, Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, and Etiwanda.
