The Lady Ballers Are Ready For A Shot At League.

 

"The more you sweat in practice; the less you bleed in battle" my former basketball coach would bark.  And although the girl's basketball season is at the halfway mark, the battle has yet to begin.

 

Every year SCV schools start by playing numerous tournaments.  It's not uncommon for a team to play three games in three days, sometimes even playing a double header.  This is where injuries can really hurt a team's overall record, because if a star player is injured for one weekend, it can cost them a few games. In addition, you have less time to game plan for your opponent being that you might not find out who that opponent is until other games are finished.

 

But when league play begins the games come at a more natural pace with a few days in between, giving coaches time to prepare and players time to recover.  Furthermore the teams have a clean slate, no wins no losses, going into league play which started this week.  Here are the out-of-league records for SCV girl's basketball.

 

 

 

W-L-T Pct. STRK
Saugus 13-3-0 .813 1 L
Valencia 10-5-0 .667 1 W
West Ranch 10-5-0 .667 2 L
Hart 7-6-0 .538 1 L
Canyon 8-7-0 .533 2 L
Golden Valley 5-10-0 .333 2 W

 

Around the league the teams have young talent.  Many star players are freshmen and sophomores this year, which is a beacon of good years to come.   Here are a few players to look out for this season.
