Bonita girls basketball sweep pool play in Las Vegas to remain unbeaten, advances to Monday’s semifinals

At the Las Vegas Holiday Classic, undefeated Bonita swept its pool by defeating University (56-48), Liberty (60-40) and Georgetown Texas, (47-39). In Monday’s semifinals, Bonita (12-0) will take on defending champion Reno (NV.) at 11:40 a.m. In the earlier semifinals, Centennial will take on West Torrance at 10:20 a.m. The winners will meet in the championship later that afternoon at 3:40 p.m. If Bonita goes on to win the tournament and starts 14-0, they will likely remain undefeated through the Hacienda League before the CIF playoffs again. And you know what that likely means? An undefeated record almost certainly will result with an invitation to the Open Division to compete with the best of the best. Is that good or bad?

MONDAY UPDATE: Bonita’s perfect season ends, losing 68-52 to Reno, NV., in the semifinals Monday. Bonita returns home, 12-1

Walnut takes Damien to the limit, but Jeremy Hemsley bails out the Spartans to take the Covina Boys Basketball tournament

Damien sneaks by Walnut with two-point victory to take Covina tourney title: Damien High School’s scheme was not to get the ball to Jeremy Hemsley and let him go one-on-one against Walnut. But in crunch time of the 60th annual Covina Christmas Tournament on Monday night, that’s exactly what the Spartans did. “We just needed a bucket,” Hemsley said. “I knew coach would give the ball to me or my teammates. Either they would have got the shot or I would have got the shot.”
The two-time tournament MVP scored eight of the Spartans’ final 11 points en route to Damien’s 60-58 victory over Walnut to win its third consecutive tournament title.

HE’S BACK: Former Los Altos legend Greg Gano will take over as Wilson’s head football coach

“It’s going to be a nice, new challenge,” Gano said. “I don’t have a magic wand, so it’s going to take time. They know that. I know that. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure that out. “We’re going to try and put a staff together, work hard and be competitive.”

coachganoBy Aram Tolegian Greg Gano is back in Hacienda Heights. Gano, who won four CIF championships at Los Altos, was named head coach of the Wilson High School football team last Friday. Gano is the fourth head coach at the school in four years … conversely, Wilson is Gano’s third job in the past two years. “You always think the grass is greener and it’s not, and I’m back in the district where I spent most of my coaching career and I’m excited about being here,” Gano said.Wilson’s football program has fallen on hard times in recent years. The Wildcats were 1-9 this fall and didn’t win a game in the Valle Vista League. Nick Christos, who was in his second year at the helm, resigned as head coach shortly after the season.
Prior to that, the Wildcats were coached by veteran Bob Burt, who was brought in to stabilize the program after the hasty exit previous head coach Brian Zavala. Burt was also supposed to mentor Christos, who served on Burt’s staff.
