Analysis tomorrow. Also, I’ll interview Athletic Director/Coach Tim Walsh!
OV only allowed 2 points until the 3:30 mark in the 3rd quarter. At which point OV missed 5 consecutive free throws, missed a dunk badly, got the crowd back into the game, and used a 2-3 zone. What a quarter!
Like I said in the preview, this one can raise some eyebrows. Segerstrom has capitalized on mistakes, but Ocean View is in the driver seat when it comes to transition play. We’ll have to see how this one turns out if it gets into a free throw shooting game.
That’s what we call a rocky start. The defense has been there at times, but it’s apparent that Segerstrom is here to play.
This game is rather special, both inside and outside of the game. If you didn’t already know, Ocean View and Segerstrom have already tried to play faced each other, but a blackout that started during the JV game caused the game to be postponed until today. However, after I left, the lights came back on briefly. The score during that game ended up being 4-2 in favor of Segerstrom, so we actually come into this game losing.
On the court, however, Ocean View (16-3, 4-0 in league play) and Segerstrom (15-3, 4-0 in league play) are the only two undefeated teams left in the Golden West League. Segerstrom, quite honestly, has been the only team that has a shot at Ocean View for at least 5 years in this league. The Jaguars have a great coaching staff and developed this team into a real threat to the long shadow of the Seahawks.
Led by Head Coach, Adrian Gomez, the Jaguars had a very impressive showing in the Century Holiday Classic last month. Steve Fryer named this team “on the rise” in his league preview. Coach Gomez has truly raised a classy, and hard working program up to brand new levels, but their talent level is significantly lower than Ocean View’s. There is one thing that is for sure though: Segerstrom will not go away easily.
