    Diamond Bar beat La Sierra 32 to 26

  • patick

    Thanx for update DBFan, any details??

    52 fouls!!!! 52 fouls called in the CO-San Dimas game!!! That’s what John “Nuttin Honey” Honell’s article said. How is that even possible? I mean, that means they probably didn’t play even a minute straight without a whistle.

    I can’t stand it when refs who aren’t used to calling girls hoops get a girls hoops assignment. It’s girls hoops! You could call fouls and travels and carries on EVERY POSSESSION.

    On my way to the golf course, will update the few scores I missed and update Wednesday’s next round schedule later this afternoon…

    The only stat i know from the Diamond Bar La Sierra game is that Alabi had a game high 11 points.

  • Panthers

    Diamond Ranch girls are looking tough and may win it all. The Hawthorne game was a real war, and these ladies are warriors. Kudos to the DR coaches as well.

  • Regent Gary

    Fred,

    What was the final score of the Winward@ Workman girls game.? I heard that Winward scored over 100 points, That true?

  • bailey

    Hey Fred, I’m looking for the St. Genevieve and Aquinas GBBall score from last night. Not finding it anywhere!

  • DR Fan

    First Contrats to all the SGV teams that won last night. Panthers was right, that Hawthorne game was a war, but not for the reasons we might think. Hawthorne was one of the dirtest teams that I have ever seen. Their coaches were talking all kinds of crap to the DR players most of the first half. When they weren’t talking crap, the players were throwing elbows.
    Our coaches did a good job of keeping the players focused. I was sitting just above the bench so during time-outs I was ease dropping. The talk was always about keeping their composure and playing their game. Great Job Ladies, I will be there Wednesday at home.

  • Fred Robledo

    I feel terrible for schools like Workman and Duarte. For them to be in the division they’re in is completely unfair. For Workman to have to lose a game by 60 or 70 points when in all fairness it’s one of the best teams they’ve had is terrible. Same for Duarte, I’ve seen them, they could compete with anyone in the Valley. Not saying they would win, but they would give Amat and DRanch a run for their money. For Amat, St. Lucy’s and other private schools to be in easier divisions than schools like Workman and Duarte is exactly what’s wrong with the system currently in use. I have been saying it all year and this is exactly why.

  • Laron

    Windward is the #1 team in the state and #3 in the nation and Oaks Christian is like #15 in the state. I don’t get CIF when they make these choices for divisions. I know Duarte would compete with almost anybody in most division. Its sad they can’t get a shot with like teams. Public and private team should different divisions.

  • Unfair??

    Come on Fred, really?? Duarte and Workman are in div 4A and Amat and St. Lucys are in a higher division 3A, so how is that unfair. Actually, Amat should be in a higher division because they have dominated this division year after year. But, St. Lucy’s has not made it this far in CIF basketball in many years so the two are not comparable.

  • Fred Robledo

    Division numbers don’t mean anything, really. La Verne Lutheran is in 4A and one of the best teams in the state. Like the previous commenter said, Windward is No. 3 in the nation, so you tell me what’s wrong with that picture. They shouldn’t be playing Workman? Workman and Duarte are in a division with teams that finished ahead of Amat in the Del Rey League while Amat is in a division with schools from the Valle Vista League. You tell me how that’s fair?

  • Regent Gary

    Fred,

    Richard Wiard is laughing his way to a another CIF championship ,with a team that finished next to last in League. The other teams in the League, Serra, St. Bernard, B. Montgomery are in divisions lower than Amat, yet with much better teams in the playoffs. Just doesn’t make sense.
    Teams in the same league also should be in the same division. I believe that’s the way it is in soccer.

  • Fred Robledo

    I’ve been saying that all year Gary, league races mean absolutely nothing in basketball. Might as well eliminate league and let everyone play whoever they want. CIF is all about what division you’re either fortunate or unfortunate to be part of. Makes no sense AT ALL. You’re right, teams in the same league should be in the same playoff division. They’re aren’t because of state playoffs. At the end of the day it’s all about making money, not the kids that play.
