Golden Valley girls basketball started to figure out how to slow down the quick Gardena offense.
Saugus could only hold Valencia's shooters in check for so long. After a somewhat stagnant first half for both teams, Valencia got its offense working and was able to topple a taller Saugus team 51-40 Saturday in a non-league game at the Valencia High-Five Classic at Valencia High School. The Vikings (2-2) earned fifth place in the classic with the win. "We run a lot of sets, so it gives us a lot of places ...
At first, Hart was taking advantage of Stockdale's aggressive style of defense. The Indians were finding open lanes and shots in transition when they were able to break the press. But Hart couldn't break the press consistently enough, and ended up on the losing end of a 65-47 game in the third-place matchup at the Valencia High-Five Classic Tournament. Hart (2-2) handled Stockdale's full-court pressure defense for the first half, trailing just 23-20 at the ...
College of the Canyons hasn't just carved its way through some of the top-ranked men's soccer teams in California.
Sometimes, a brand new program has to go through growing pains. Unfortunately for Trinity Classical Academy, those pains came in the form of a 59-24 loss to Armenian General Benevolent Union of Canoga Park on Thursday at Santa Clarita Christian School. It was Trinity's first-ever game as a varsity boys basketball program as well as the opening round of the SCCS 2010 Tip-Off Tournament. "I liked how hard our players worked," said Trinity head coach ...
Valencia girls basketball not only had a tough time scoring, it struggled to even inbound the ball against pressure defense all night long.
Saugus figured out its offensive game plan early on - give the ball to Megan Dawe. The plan worked early and often as Saugus girls basketball topped Knight of Palmdale 45-34 in Tuesday night's opening-round game of the Valencia High-Five Classic at Valencia High School. Dawe scored 29 points on a 13-for-20 shooting performance to lead the team. "We're going to have to find somebody else to score," said Saugus head coach Kent Eaton. "It ...

Basketball season is now in full swing at The Master's College, but the women's soccer could steal the headlines this week when it competes in the NAIA Tournament.
VENTURA - Against a team the caliber of St. Bonaventure, opportunities are at a premium. Canyon had a few early on Friday night, but couldn't capitalize against a stout St. Bonaventure defense. The Cowboys were handed a 45-21 defeat in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division playoffs at Ventura High School. "We were going to have to play a perfect, lights-out game against them," said Canyon head coach Chris Varner. "A few ...
Normally, a coach might spend the week before a game preparing to play the opponent. For Santa Clarita Christian School head coach Garrick Moss, the preparation for today's game literally began years ago. SCCS hopes it pays off at 7 p.m. in the CIF-Southern Section Division I 8-man semifinals against Excelsior of Victorville at Canyon High. "Two years ago when we made our run and won (the CIF-SS Div. I 8-man title), they were a ...
At first glance, it was far from the type of finish College of the Canyons was hoping for in 2010.
As a young team, College of the Canyons men's basketball needs as much experience in close games as possible.
Closeness was never the problem. The Master's College women's basketball team has always been a close-knit group. Many of the players are friends and many hang out together outside of basketball. The difference this year is how the team is taking advantage. "We have a camaraderie that we haven't had here since I've been head coach," said TMC head coach Dan Waldeck. "We have a togetherness that we haven't had on the court. We've always ...
