Los Altos is in the midst of a tough stretch. The Conquerors play four games this week, including Wednesday at Canyon of Anaheim, Thursday against Chino and Friday at Webb.
By the time the Conquerors complete their own tournament on Feb. 7, they will have played 22 games in the last 30 days.
“It’s not crazy at all,” coach Chris Coleman said. “The girls season is so weird in its complexion because you have Thanksgiving break and then Christmas break. The girls disappear. A lot of teams play 15 games before the new year. I did not want that. Why train so hard and then disappear for two, three weeks? You do not gain anything. You actually lose what you worked on.”

Damien’s Jeremy Hemsley may go down as one of the San Gabriel’s Valley’s all-time best, right there with Tracy Murray, Casey Jacobsen, Cameron Murray, Keith Van Horn, Grant Jerrett, etc., as the Valley’s all-time greats. But on this night in the Northview basketball tournament in December, Glendora’s Brandon Brothers had a crossover and bucket that he can talk about forever … Enjoy it, because that will probably never happen again to No. 42.
