San Dimas’ rally falls short
By Fred J. Robledo
With visiting Morningside raining three-pointers and driving up and down the court like dragsters, it appeared San Dimas was going to get run out of its own building during Friday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 4AA second-round boys basketball playoff game.
But not only did the Saints take a good punch, they fought back from a 15-point first-quarter deficit to take a three-point lead in the second half before eventually falling to the eighth-seed Monarchs, 80-68.

Morningside’s Brennan Jackson sank three 3-pointers and scored 15 of his team-high 22 points in the first quarter to give the Monarchs a 25-10 lead.
“We weren’t geared in to how quick they were going to play,” Saints coach Bruce Robbins said. “Because we weren’t geared into that, it took a while to get adjusted to that game speed. Once we adjusted, we played pretty well.”
Chris Barbato’s game-high 23 points and K.J. Byrd’s 19 points helped lead the Saints back.
After trailing 39-32 at half, Barbato sank two free throws to finish an 8-0 run, trimming the Monarchs’ lead to 46-42 with 2:39 left in the third quarter.
Morningside’s Alante Young, who finished with 20 points, scored inside to push the lead to 48-42, but the Saints followed with a 9-0 run, capped by Byrd’s putback to give the Saints a 51-48 lead with 51 seconds left in the quarter.
But after missing a shot that would have extended the lead, Young scored inside and DJ Harris hit a half-court shot at the third-quarter buzzer to give he Monarchs the lead back, 53-51, heading into the fourth.
That appeared to be the back-breaker, the Monarchs scoring the first six points of the fourth quarter — an 11-0 run that pushed their lead to 59-51.
“We had a chance to extend our three-point lead and missed a big opportunity, because the crowd and the momentum were all in our favor,” Robbins said. “When they hit the half-court shot to take the lead back, the wind sort of came out of our sails.
“When they got back up (by double digits) again, it was hard to come back from. We started rushing shots, quit staying in front of the ball, allowed dribble penetration, and just stopped basically doing all the things that got us back in the game.”
Barbato’s jumper with 4:02 left cut the Monarchs’ lead to 63-58 in the fourth, but the Monarchs answered with six-straight points to close it out.
“We only played seven guys tonight, but the seven guys played extremely hard,” Robbins said. “They were a quick, physical and athletic team, we have nothing to be ashamed of.”
San Dimas finishes the season 19-9 while Morningside (18-12) advances to Tuesday’s quarterfinals to take on top-seeded Price.
“We won the coin flip and would have hosted Price (in the quarterfinals),” Robbins said. “It would have been fun to advance and watch those guys (Price) come here.”

  • Amused Reader

    How is La Verne Lutheran’s recruiting class for next season? Do they even hold classes there or is it just an AAU team?

  • dranch watcher

    The LVL comment is funny, maybe not fair as LVL is really no different than the other private schools, Harvard Westlake, Mater Dei,etc, Amat, Damien(those two the least in bball) to various levels all do it.
    Question which games will Trib cover? 9 home games tonight, Amat and Damien are usuals, Glendora is away, how about the rest?

  • Basketball Junkie said

    Glendora will upset Burbank tonite. LaVerne Lutheran is just a program that flat out recruits. There principal use to be a Basketball coach and beating public schools who coach there own kids that attend there District school has no merit when they beat public schools in there surrounding area.

    The above post is correct when you talk about next year’s recruiting class.They will just take who they want and manipulate the system.They don’t know the meaning of UNDUE INFLUENCE.

  • diogenes

    I count 12 home games for area teams. In the convoluted way they assign teams to divisions it is a wonder anything works for anyone. What in hell is Walnut doing in 1A? Did they growe a couple of seven footers or some 30 plus average guards? And Workman, good as they are, is playing Notre Dame! Which ND is that?

  • Steve Ramirez

    Diogenes,
    Divisions for basketball, for the most part, are separated by enrollment size. Now some teams, based on their success over a defined period can be bumped up from their enrollment division, but they can be bumped down, if they haven’t been very successful. Now, in some very extreme cases, teams can be bumped down, but that’s rare.

    Not sure why I bother, but little lesson on LVL. Yes they hold classes, and in fact they have one of the foremost JROTC programs in the nation. They are a school of about 150 students all of whom attend classes, including religion classes (all four years). To speak negatively of all the students at the school becuase you have issues with the basketball program is unfair to MANY fine young men and women.

    Not sure exactly what this statement “There principal use to be a Basketball coach and beating public schools who coach there own kids that attend there District school has no merit when they beat public schools in there surrounding area.” means, but:

    Yes the principal did coach Girls Basketball, none of the teams were ever remarkable but they were competitive. Since most teams finished around 500, I highly doubt he was “recruting” these girls. LVL NEVER beats public schools in there (sic) area, because none of the schools in the area will play LVL. As far as recruiting for basketball, LVL does not need/have to “recruit” the coach, his basketball clinics and the reputation of the coach and school brings more players to the school then could ever play on the team. In fact Rowland and Lugo have players who used to be at Lutheran, but saw that they would be better off at other schools. You may not like LVL which is cool, but to compare them to a Findlay Prep is not fair.

    Most folks at LVL have learned to ignore the statements of the uninformed, and the rest of us are just amuse and chuckle.

    And the players when they move on to D I schools, will have a solid education leading to their college experience.

    No surprise that Glendora is gone in the first round. Their preseason schedule did not prepare them for the sierra league and the cifss playoffs. Playing teams like Bassett,Garey,Ganesha,Santa Ana ect will not prepare you to meet good teams. Next year they will be in a tougher Baseline league.

    Karma Sucks, it’s obvious you don’t know to much about basketball or coaches in general. Rice is one of the best basketball coaches around along with some of the greats, Press Laduc and others. If you were to accomplish half what he has in his career you can say something that people would listen to. Plain and simple they got ripped off and it was a hose job

    I am not surprised to see that Northview lost in the first round of CIF, having lost 3 of their last 4 games of league. I caught a lot of Northview games in the Covina Christmas Tournament they held in their gym. I was very excited to check them out considering how much success they were having in the preseason. When I watched them play I was not impressed. In the first game against Whittier they were outplayed everywhere but the free throw line. Boy they can make their free throws! Same thing in the South Hills game. I even felt, despite the blow out loss to Chino Hills that Northview still exhibited an uncanny knack to get to the free throw line. I live in LaVerne and saw the Damien game and felt that their free throw success continued even though they lost again. The last Northview game I caught was their 1st league match up with San Dimas. San Dimas played a great game and as a fan a basketball it disgusted how that game was called. To me it seemed that Northview reached and fouled #20 everytime he had the ball, but San Dimas rarely got the calls. On the other end it seemed that all San Dimas had to do was look at a Northview player and a foul was called on them. Talk about Karma! I haven’t caught one of their games since then but it looked like their Karma ran out at the end of league and CIF. As a fan of area basketball I hope Northview can field a better team next year that depends on more than luck to have success. And by the way, congratulations South Hills and Baldwin Park! I hope to catch at least one of those second round games..

  • Lobo Love

    Fred,

    Bobby Miles is the best player in the area, POINT BLANK! While ND was WAY too much for the busted up Lobos to handle, Bobby was by far the best basketball player on the court!!! Even the ND coach said after the game that Bobby is easily one of the best guards that he’s coached against and definitely one of the best ball players of this class. If Bobby would have had at least one other scoring partner, this game would have been a lot different.

    Bottom Line, even with the early playoff exit, it was very obvious that Bobby should be the front runner as you decide on SGV Player of the Year. We’re talking about him putting up 43 against Notre Dame (who looked like they have more money and recruits than USC football!!). And that weak, cliche comment about him taking 1,000 shots is WAY off base!! He was flat out money on a night where he knew he had to be!! Good luck Bobby with your bright future…you have made Lobo Land a better place during your 4 years!!!! The best is yet to come your way!!!

    Coach

  • Tech Support

    To Lobo Love,

    I’m not saying he’s not the best player in the area. Fact is the kid is on a horrible team. Everytime he actually did kick the ball to a teammate they clanked the shot. So I’m not mad at him, the same way I wasn’t mad at Kobe when his teammates were Smush, Brown, and a pile of rocks.

    That being said he shot a horrible percentage to get 41 points and he wasn’t the best player on the court last night (he might be the MOST TALENTED but he wasn’t the best). ND had the three best players on the court last night and that is why they won by the margin they did.

    It’s not a knock on Bobby. Kid had the carry the team by himself and he probably does deserve player of the year for the SGV. But doesn’t change the fact he took a boat load of shots, shot a bad percentage, and wasn’t the best player on the court last night.

    I got to say the likeness to Tate Duff gym is amazine. They must have shared blueprints when constructing the two gyms.Fast break basketball really meant fastbreak when running into those walls. I saw padding in the MD gym but I don’t recall that at AMAT. Brought back some great memories of fun times in the old gym. War ball , ASB concerts , and those crazy pep rallies and those great battles during basketball season carried over from football season . By the way do you know whatever happened to the idea of selling pieces of the old floor . I remember something of an idea bieng kick around .I guess by now it’s long gone. Either way thanks for the tip. WE ARE AMAT.

  • Hoopsfan

    Highschoolsportsfan and turnabout is fair play,
    The thing that was bad about the call that ended Northviews season was that the official 70 feet away overruled the official who said it was first touched and inavertently blew his whistle. It was the third time in the game that the same official changed a call with the other official (not that those really matter). It was a exciting game but tough lost that way for Northview

    highschoolsportsfan – No, an inadvertent whistle is a mistake – not a bad call. actually – not a call at all. big difference

  • JMO

    Hoopsfan- 1 bad call by a Ref should never decide the game. Work harder to get all the points you can. It’s like saying someone lost the game because they did not make a free throw or in baseball the kid that did not make a play so the kid was safe. So 1 bad call late in the game is foolish to say it was the Ref’s fault. Bottom line… don’t leave it up to the Ref, play your game better then the other team!

  • Vallevistafan

    Highschoolsportsfan,
    As far as I remember Northview never even played my high school, but I could be wrong. My comments are neither personal or have anything to do with that time long ago when I went to high school, I don’t know what mislead you to think so. If my comments sounded personal I apologize for it, but I do challenge you to point a single thing I said that was not just an observation of the games I witnessed. As for the rest of your comment I agree that Northview lost all 5 of their starters, that is why I was surprised by their early season success. You are right, high school teams do change year to year, but in Northview’s case the coach has stayed the same for a long time. I am hoping that perhaps my angle of the games I saw were poor and my judgment is off. It would be disappointing to think that Northview was getting special calls due to the reputation of their coach, which an earlier post elevated to the status of coaches like Press and Laduc. I wouldn’t go so far as to agree with that statement, but I do think Rice should be commended for his years of service to high school athletics, and if there was an award for longevity he should definitely get it. I do think Rice and his assistants yell at their players too much and the officials. Outside of the Chino Hills game there has been little to no consequences for their behavior. From the games I saw I thought the San Dimas coach was guilty of the same thing, although more so directed at the officials. I don’t blame Rice if he is getting calls, since the officials let him act out the way he does on the sidelines, too afraid to give him a technical, you can’t expect those same officials to not be influenced by his tirades. Your comment about “complaining about ref’s calls is an excuse for losing” is a bit confusing. Did you mean to say “is an excuse for losers?” If that’s the case then how do feel about coaches that constantly complain about calls during games?

    i feel bad for Bobby Miles. He has had a more stressful season then he should of. Against gladstone he sprained his ankle late in the fourth quarter and what does the great almighty coach of his do? gives him a few minutes to walk it off and then throws him back in the game. That easily could of ended his career. But the dumbshit coach just cares about his best interest, not the players. Without Miles, workman wouldn’t of even made the playoffs. So i’m sure he’ll be gone next year when His talent is gone. Unless he steps up his recruiting game even more. If you guys thought him recruiting CJ was bad, his latest recruit makes that look like cupcakes. He brought a player from mexico over to workman and has him living at his house. i’m sure not even the D-1 private schools go that overboard. Workman is a joke. scratch that…. Flores is a joke.

  • pitchfork punks unite

    watching you may want to get in touch with homeland security. the man is clearly a threat to the american way of life. now watching are you as courageous to live your name now that you’ve accused a player of being far too courageous for his own good and his coach for being far too supoortive of his player’s decision to inbound the ball. isn’t this how hannibal lecker got his start, coaching basketball at the high school level. btw i was at the ND game last year and flores coached his butt off. why interject yourself into workman and miles-serrano’s limelight when all you could do is go to homeland security and get your medal for snitch of the year. get a life loser.

  • recruit

    Pitchforkpunk

    He did not out coach anybody as evident in the Cathedral game last year. He got out coached and that Cathedral team was not that much better than the Workman squad. Let me tell you guys on this blog MARTIN FLORES CAN NOT COACH! He can assemble talent as evident by bringing in CJ and other kids from other schools as he has done in the past. He has been known to bring people over and give them a tour of the school. Lie to parents telling them that there kids can go play D1 college. He screwed over a lot of his travel ball guys back in the wolfpack days. This guy is a snake and all the other coaches in the valley know this. The coaches that do agree with him are the same boneheads just like him. None of his players develop and Bobby lead that team through out the season. Workman will be a better place once this guy is gone. Kind of like what happened with Gano at LA, he just recruited but nobody developed. He does have someone living with him from mexico that is a fact.

    flores is a biased idiot. Carlos Molina was the true big man inside last season. he worked his tail off for both football and basketball. Sadly, his high school career ended during week 4 in football when he tore something in his knee. He was looking forward to the basketball tournament that the team had scheduled in illinois. But since he couldn’t play, what does flores do? reject him from going to support his teammates. Since the school was funding the trip, he rather take the players he could use, plus the cheerleading squad. His son, also was injured, but he still took him on the trip. Flores has lied to many players, as well as broke so many cif rules.

    pitchfork punks reunite:
    you just called me a snitch, which means you also know of this and you are not denying anything that i have stated. so you also confirm this is true. i bet you’re one of his coaches huh? All his coaches on all levels are idiots.

  • mexicans need love too

    what’s wrong with living with someone from mexico. not only are you a snitch but you are a racist! Mexicans don’t cost much to maintain and will cut the grass at bargain basement prices plus on a noche muy frio they give new meaning to carne asada!

  • Just sayin!!!

    Watching;

    You seem to be pretty informed about the Lobo team and coach Flores? Can you tell us all what they all had as a pre-game meal?
    You are right Molina was 1 of the biggest factors for the last years success. As a matter of fact I have heard Flores acknowledge that plenty of times. He was seriously missed this year. You are half right about that trip. Carlos didnt travel with them and his son did. However you are mistaken his son injured his knee in Ill. I will never take anything away from Carlos because watching him dominate the paint last year was exciting. The young man was tough and he was clearly the in forcer in the middle no doubt what so ever about that.
    I know you are one of those guys that showed up to games hoping they lost. It must have been tough for you over the last 2 Montview seasons to only be able to see them loose 1 game of league play. That must have ate you up. We could all tell by your obvious hatred of Coach Flores and his staff. Guys like you calling the coaches idiots is hilarious because if you knew the game of Basketball you would understand how much Lobo Flores was missed. He took 27 charges last year. By far leading the area in that stat. No one else was close and no one ever will. He understood the game better than you ever will. The combo of Carlos and Lobo caused teams to have a fit teams just could not score in the paint last year. Since you watched the Lobos so much you would have noticed the Lobos had no interior defense what so ever this year. They had 2 seniors who had no real varsity experience prior to this year, 2 sophomores and a freshman in the post. It was obvious that the Lobos missed both Molina and Flores.
    Coach Flores did more with less than anyone could have ever imagined. What other coach could lose 3 starters and no not to graduation but loosing them to injury and a transfer and still win a league title? And it wasnt even close they lost only 1 game in Montview play La Puente who came in second lost 3 league games. I for one am excited to see what Flores is going to do with the 2 sophomores who started in the playoff game and the freshman big who saw very little action this year. Congratulations to Flores and his mighty back to back Montview League champs.

  • Double L

    Wow!!! So much hatred for Martin Flores and the Lobos. Hey like they say, “at least they’re talking about you.” Whoever WATCHING is obviously has been around the program and is a perfect representative of “old school Workman.” Eventhough he may be on the inside (and obviously has some ties to the school)he still wishes nothing but bad things for the school. As soon as things start to look up, as in the case with Workman Basketball, people from the INSIDE start trying to bring them down. In most cases this happens because they were an overhyped MONTVIEW league player (probably from Workman) that never amounted to anything!!! That must be the case with you WATCHINGANDHATING!!

    How in the world would you know anything about the situation at Workman?? If you know Molina so well, ask him who is helping him with getting into college…..good old Flores!!! Stop “watching” and either lend a hand or kick rocks!!! And if you have any questions, you can always get at me……I ain’t hard to find!!!

    PS…..stop riding Bobby so hard…..he knows who REALLY has his back and is well aware of parasites like you that will try to claim him as “your boy” once he gets that ride!!!!

  • Just Sayin!!!

    Watching;

    So tell me how many minutes did Bobby play on his turned ankle??? How many times did he touch the ball in play on that hurt ankle? If coach cared more about the win than Miles’ health I’m sure he called a play to get the ball to his 1 experienced player. Oh wait Flores brought him in to inbound the ball in the last seconds of a close game? What a bone head I cant believe he put him in harms way like that. Oh wait tell me again how a player can hurt himself in bounding the ball? Damn it I really need to re-learn the game of basketball because so much has changed. You are very right about one thing without Miles-Serrano the Lobos would not have won this years league title no way no how they had no varsity experience what so ever. I dont think any one can argue that. No one at all. But really to say the Lobos would do better with out Flores just sounds childish. The guy led the Lobos to 2 league titles in back to back years. Especially this year no other coach could have pulled that off every team tried to take Bobbie out of the game and beat the Lobos but Flores still managed to lead them to a second league title. What does the guy have to do to get some respect? Maybe we can get him to change his name to Rodney Dangerfield because the man gets no respect. Serious question for all you on the Fire Flores club, if he wins league next year will you all be man enough to say you were wrong about him and his “idiot” coaches? Will you really???

  • Boomer

    Wow, at this time last year, I would of been one of the only people backing up Flores. It’s good to see he’s gained some respect in the valley. So I have little to say. You must be a close person to the school. You were probably at most games, or you talk to some of the students. Either way, you don’t know too much about Flores. I won’t get into it with you, unless you man up and show yourself. Since you’re around workman so much, just ask around who boomer is, then come find me. We can talk. Great job coach Flores. Let’s get that 3peat

  • Who brought Cousin Pendejo ?

    Taking Boomer ‘s advice last year I took my son to see CJ Guerrero and see what al the hype was. We left in awe of Bobby Miles-Serrano. We saw Notre Dame try every trick in the book with a better skilled and more athletic team, or so they thought, and Coach Flores never batted an eye. He called TO’s at the right times and kept the team focused up until the last second. His substitution pattern was right on as well, and yes I did see the big man in the middle and the short quick three point defensive stopper come in at key moments in the game. Flores did one heck of a job that night as we sat behind the ND bench and the players, parents and coaches kept saying, ‘Keep it up!! They’ll BREAK!!”. The Lobos never did. Notre Dame is a D1 level school. with D1 level athletes and D1 level support as some have acknowledged and have no business playing against a team like Workman but they were sent packing that night, much to their surprise.

    This year I thought about seeing Bobby one last time but figured with all the injuries and with ND with a score to settle it would be tough going for the Lobos and still Bobby somehow drained 43 on them. Yes I did see where a FRESHMEN and a SOPH did most of ND’s damage so trust me when I say this…ND got their ducks in a row.

    To the person who needs to blast Flores I say this. LOOK AROUND!!! We’re discussing Workman here…and that’s something Coach Flores can hang his hat on. Don’t be like so many who can’t stand another person’s success and yet have accomplished nothing themselves.

    Best of luck next year Coach Flores and to all the Lobos my son and I saw play that night I salute you. Best of luck to all of you, it was a great game and a great night. Too bad every “party” has a drunk jealous ahole who no one will take credit for inviting, in other words ~ Cousin Pendejo!

    To Who brought Cousin Pendejo ?

    I have no clue what game you were at but that certainly does not describe the ND-Workman game I saw.

    Again, I have no history or beef with Workman. Like you I saw them play last year to check out the hype of CJ and I thought Bobby was their overall best player after watching a couple of games. I don’t care/know if the coach brings in players/houses them/pays them like their name was Reggie Bush.

    What I do know is that Flores was completely and utterly outcoached. To say ND is a D1 level basketball team is to not know basketball. They are a good team but a very young team (they start two freshmen and two sophs). The entire offense for Workman was “give the ball to Bobby and let him shoot.” Now, that’s not a bad idea given the talent level of the guys around him (they’d have trouble hitting water if they fell out of the boat) but there were no plays run to get Bobby better shots. I understand he was the only player they had to break the press but once he crosses half court it was all isolation. No screens set, no set plays to give him the ball cutting. He worked very hard, and shot a lot to get his 43 points. At no point in that game was Workman ever a threat to win.

    Now maybe his team was so limited that really was the only thing they could do. There is nothing wrong with that. You have to play with the players you have. But I remember watching old Glendora teams who only had one scorer do much better jobs at getting shots for that scorer using ball movement and screens with limited talent around them. That would be coaching, not what Flores did against ND.

  • tdrohan

    On a sidenote:
    The greatest HS performance I’ve witnessed was Dominic Tiger-Cortez’ final game as a Tartan. Something to the tune of 37 points I believe in a 5-point loss to the 10th-ranked Etiwanda Eagles in the Semi-finals at Damiens’ new gym… Was just truly remarkable and efficient…

    Here’s a little snippet, must see:

  • Stop Being a hater

    Tech Support re-read you comments. Care-ful-ly. You answer your own question, validate my points and clearly illustrate your basic lack of knowledge regarding Le Duc, Glendora basketball, Coaching in general and are astonishingly devoid of any familiarity with Notre Dame’s history.

    If all Coach Flores has to worry about is some one like you, who’s clearly never played, never coached and never competed against a school like Notre Dame than he should sleep well at night. as I do.

    Wasn’t it a freshmen and a soph who lit up Workman for 40 plus points? Where were those kids last year? Workman, Nogales, ect ect have great athletes come in cycles. ND, Loyola, Crespi, Servite, Bishop Amat, Serra, ect ect reload and upgrade from reloading. They have $$$$$, resources, tradition and so much more that would make your head spin.

    After last year’s loss to “Workman” the powers that be at ND said….’NEVER AGAIN!!!” and you can best believe this game was circled and everyone came to see the reckoning and all they saw was a flat out stud lead his team with incredible will and class while dropping 43 big ons. In other words he matched the two young bucks they brought.

  • Nice Local Game

    Went to see the CO game to see what to expect when they get to the Sierra League and sat next to Gonzaga coaches who were in attendance. If the student body is anything like these two gentlemen I can rest assured my daughter will enjoy the school, first class all the way.

    Thropay is a very solid kid,who plays with heart, energy and doesn’t back down. (Too bad WG and Thropay didn’t become bookend DE at Amat because they are both physical specimens for sure!) Maybe that’s what Compton Centennial thought would happen, and their amusing fans, thought would happen but CO hung tough and if not for a silly series of miscues right before halftime CO wins this game.

    Thy had a tough sharp shooting guard and a very good and aggressive play maker who fouled out with less than 3 minutes to go and sealed the loss. I will say this I’ve never seen a coach sit in his chair motionless for four quarters before regardless of what was taking place, and the CC did just that.

    At one point I asked the Gonzaga coach if he’s had that affect of a HC before, he laughed and said no. All kidding aside, two observations. CO kids have heart and where were all the Football players showing support?

    Great effort in a losing cause by CO, welcome to the SL, well be waiting. COCF were you at the game? I thought your son played varsity basketball, was he the young kid they put in late in the 3rd? He seemed young but willing.

    Now lets stop talking about all of workman’s drama and issues and talk about the teams still playing, like Damien with a nice win by 12 at Westlake. It was twenty something with 5 minutes left, Chris Reyes had a huge night 26 points and 13 rebounds, home game on Tuesday at Damien.

  • Why does everyone LOVE Chris?

    Maybe Chris Reyes and Chris Adams took some one advice and started trying to put 30 ! and 40 ! points on the board instead of the 15 and 17 they were used to. You don’t use a thoroughbred to plow a field.

    Chris Adams goes for 30 in round one and Chris Reyes probably could have scored 40 tonight in round two !

    Those numbers sound familiar?

    To Stop Being A Hater,

    Wow, let’s count the number of wrong statements

    * I have watched LeDuc and Glendora since the Tracy Murray days. So I know how that program plays, runs its offense (both when they have stud players and when they don’t have the talent).
    * Two of my best friends attended SO Notre Dame and I have seen countless basketball and football games over the past decade there.
    * I’ve played and competed against schools like Notre Dame when I was in high school as well.

    Yes it was a freshmen and soph who lit up Workman for 44 points. Of course they did so in the context of the way ND runs their offense. They took GOOD SHOTS in the flow of the offense. If they weren’t open, they didn’t shoot. The 44 points was the result of good coaching, of finding the open person in a position to score. ND does have advantages being a private school but check their record over the past 10 years and you’ll see the same cycles (since they are compteting for players with Loyola and Harvard-Westlake who usually get the basketball talent in the area).

    Bobby’s 43 points were in the context of “dribble the ball up the court, drive to the basket or pull up.” No screens, no cuts, no working the ball to him in positions to score. That’s a combination of him being the only good player on the team AND the fact that the Workman coach, over a full year, couldn’t put together an offensive plan that uses what little skills and talents the rest of the squad has. Again, how many shots did he take to get 43?

    Again maybe the talent at Workman was so limited this year, this was the only thing he could do. I could accept that as a possible answer. But to say that the game showed great coaching by Flores is far fetched.

    I agree with the guy below though, let’s focus on the teams still alive now.

  • Huskyman

    Ouch…………

  • Stop Being A Hater

    Tech Support what school and what level did you play, coach and compete against? We will take this slow. Last year Coach Flores out coached ND. On that night, under those conditions and with the players he had he out coached ND. That night ND made run after run and he answered with substitutions and TOs that kept the boys together. That’s coaching as well. He won back to back league championships while losing star players, vital players and a stud in CJ so are you dismissing every league coach as well. It’s offensive for you to come on here on Bobby’s last night, after another valliant effort, and tear into his coach and his efforts in a losing cause against a school that is as wealthy and well resourced as ND. But hey have it, this conversation is over. Answer the questions if you wish or move on doesn’t matter one bit to Workman fans who appreciate what the boys and the coach did these two past years, even without your basketball approval. What a farce!

  • basketballfan

    have no idea how SHHS goes against HW so early in the playoffs…just like last year going against RSM so soon too…regarding the big loss they played their hearts out i know the score hurts but they all played hard that team from HW had 5 coaches 4 trainers a medic and their own security probably for their rowdy group of parents who sat on the SH side; their main guy, they play an inside game – is a MAN not a teenager, they are very well funded and it shows in all the individual attention oh well it was a special season and all of the home crowd was very proud of the boys!

  • Aaron

    From what I’ve heard and read Bonita played a great game on Friday night. Nothing was in the Trib, but Pete Bennett has done a lot with coverage of Bonita sports this year as well as additional coverage for Damien and Lutheran this year. An article on LaVerneOnline told me a lot.

    Bonita played tough and close having the lead multiple times, however Golden Valley’s size seems to have worn down the Bearcats as they would come back and tie and take the lead from the Bearcats a few times. However the turning point was in the fourth quarter with Bonita leading by six, CJ Miller’s nose was broken as he and Trevor Wiseman scuffled for a loose ball.

    CJ being one of the Bearcats top scorers and a presence in the middle with Garrett Horine basically gave it up to their big man. Bearcats were outscored 29-15 in the fourth quarter.

  • daily ref

    Aaron-
    Disappointing loss for Bcats with Golden Valley. BHS lead a number of times, worked hard, but to’s and Millers injury hurt. Northrup seemed to be keyed on, he and Horines did everything they could but we lacked size not heart but size in the paint. For some reason the cats get little love from the Trib and now with the loss forget it. Boys had a great season again, girls are still alive and looking good.

    For the last time, since there are plenty of schools left who deserve the attention…

    Who, what, when I played is not relevent to the discussion. I played varsity ball for a pretty good team in the early 90s, that’s all you need to know. I grew up around high school basketball and have followed it for close to 30 years now.

    How is offensive for me to comment on what I saw? Seriously man you need to stop living through your kids/team if you think one person’s observations on a basketball game rises to the level of “offensive”. And at no point did I take shots at Bobby’s effort at all. I flat out said he was a talented player and probably the best in the SG Valley. All I said was his 43 came on A LOT of shots. Do you want to dispute that? I don’t know the number he took off the top of my head but I sure as hell know he MISSED a lot more than he made.

    I also know what I saw in the game. I saw a Workman team who did not have an offensive set. They isolated Bobby all night, made him the only ball handler and didn’t even set on the ball screens for him to free him up. Calling iso plays for your best player does not rise to the level of good coaching. Again, maybe it was his team this year being so bad they couldn’t do anything else. But when you have a whole year to get to this point, you think you might go to Plan B when Plan A didn’t work. Unless you didn’t have Plan B.

    The sign of a good coach is how much BETTER you make the talent you have. Last year they had a lot of talent, and lost to what I thought was a less talented Cathedral team (although you can dispute that as Cathedral had some good players). This year they had very little talent that didn’t seem elevated at all by offensive and defesive sets/strategies empolyed by the coach.

    The better example to use would have been if he got me season tickets when I was four and kept them until today. If that was the case wouldn’t you say I’d been around the Lakers for near 30 years watching?

    The sad thing is you’re more concerned with who I am or what my credentials are. Maybe it’s because you realize you have no point, I don’t know. That’s fine with me.

    And the fact that at five I knew more about the game than you do now is perhaps my favorite result of this.
